Turn Your Beliefs Into Convictions
The words MOTIVATION and EMOTION come from the same root word -- crazy, right? Your brain interprets your experiences based in the framework -- the mindset -- you've established. So, whether an experience is positive or negative is determined, in large part, by the mood you establish for yourself. The emotion and the meaning you attach to events usually are more memorable than the actual experience -- have you ever noticed that?
Check Your Beliefs
“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” – Tony Robbins
The Key is to move from opinion (temporary feelings that can be changed easily) to beliefs (feelings based on broader experience and emotion) and then to Conviction (certainty of your feelings, the core of what motivates you in life).
Conviction requires passion and, because of that, it has the power to push you through all kinds of struggles and obstacles. If you've got a conviction to be in shape, then NOTHING is going to deter that. If you've got a conviction to keep your child safe, NOTHING is going to prevent you from doing that, right?
Your convictions empower you and bring consistency. So, if you've got a conviction that you're a resillient, resourceful, and smart person -- that is the kind of thing that can get you through really tough times!
So, what can you do to turn your opinions or beliefs into convictions that literally define who you are and help you make postive, enduring changes in your life?
Identify the basic or opinion you want to elevate.
Reinforce your belief by adding powerful references.
To develop a conviction that you ARE a fit, healthy, and strong person - you might want to research the consequence of NOT being that kind of person, talk to people who've had success where you want it, and develop a ton of references of how, why, and what it requires for you to actually be that person right at this moment. The more references (the deeper the why) you create the stronger your conviction will be (Remember your 7 levels deep exercise in this area!)
Raise the necessity by creating or identifying a triggering event. What you need to do is raise the emotional necessity AND intensity of your belief.
Example: I was a smoker for 20 years. I knew it was bad for me. I quit on 12/30/2013 and was able to keep away from cigarettes after I was horribly sick and physically couldn't smoke anymore. And, just as I was tempted to go back to it, I got pregnant. The conviction I had that it would be bad for me and my baby AND that I never wanted my baby to see me doing something so unhealthy was all the conviction I needed to never smoke again.
Do Something. Take Action.
Every action you take strengthens both your commitment and your conviction and it gives you evidence, EMOTION, and MOTION to raise the intensity of your conviction.
