My personal consulting services: belief systems

In my years of working with private clients, I’ve never met a belief system. I’ve never seen one.
“Belief system” is a term that has broad appeal, because it suggests that a person’s predispositions are organized and interlocked. This sounds like science.
“I see. My mind contains a system of mutually supporting beliefs. My mind is operating in a scientific fashion, even if the belief system doesn’t assist me in attaining my goals. So better science can bail me out. It can change the system. It can install a better system. Perhaps I can even perform science on my own mind and analyze the system and insert new and more positive components. Out with the old software, in with the new. It’s a technical fix. I make a list of better beliefs and plug them into the system…”
This is a fictional model that has no relation to how people change their own actions.
Basically, people change their actions by discovering something they really want to do in life. Then they figure out how to do it. They flesh out a new enterprise. Then they launch the enterprise.
“But I can’t. My belief system is holding me back.”
In my experience, that’s not true. The person is holding himself back. To put it another way, no matter how many insights a person may have about his “self-limiting beliefs,” a moment is going to arrive when he either pulls the trigger on launching a new enterprise, or he doesn’t.
It helps to understand that people who take action do it with a naked decision. They cross the line. They step forward. They don’t wait around for a sign. They don’t try to scrub away all the possible negative factors that could hold them back. They make a move.
This has nothing to do with any system.
In my consulting work, there is something I do that helps certain clients. I give them exercises that flesh out the enterprise they would launch, if they decide to do what they really want to do. In a way, it resembles a rehearsal for the real thing. Or I give them exercises that make their vision of the enterprise more vivid.
But nothing under the sun, except the person himself, will decide to launch a new enterprise, launch it, and keep it going. To think otherwise creates an obstruction, a piece of fantasy that only postpones the moment.
On the other hand, I’ve had clients who were ready to take action from the outset. They first needed to discover what they really wanted to do in life—and then flesh out an enterprise that would express that deep desire. Through dialogue and exercises, I’ve been able to help them make that discovery. And build a plan.
In these times, many people are feeling “down” because of various political developments. That state of mind won’t transport them to where they want to go. I salute the people who keep moving forward in their lives, who are determined to make their largest visions into fact in the world.
If civilization has a root reason to exist, that reason is removing obstructions for such individuals. After all, they build the best of what civilization has to offer.
