Beginning in early childhood, we all form beliefs – which are simply ideas that seem true and real to us – based on a variety of sources, such as our parents, schooling, friends, and firsthand experiences. Unfortunately, however, some of these beliefs may be harmful, allowing self-doubt to creep in and holding us back from reaching our full potential. Therefore, it’s crucial to shift these limiting beliefs — but how can we go about doing so?

Tony Burgess, our guest in Episode 143 of The MINDset Game® podcast, has outlined several practical steps for changing beliefs that may be keeping you from reaching your goals. As the co-founder of the Academy of High Achievers (along with his partner, Julie French), Tony has trained and coached business leaders, entrepreneurs, and teams on powerful mental and emotional fitness techniques to help them tap into their full potential. He is also recognized for his expertise in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), DiSC and Havening techniques, and is the co-author of “Pink Bucket Thinking” and “Beliefs and How to Change Them…for Good!” 

In this week’s episode, Tony discusses the concept of beliefs (including those that are self-limiting) and walks us through several steps in the belief modification process, including:

  • Getting clear on what exactly you want to achieve when changing your beliefs
  • Conducting a “beliefs audit” to distinguish those that are helpful from those that are no longer serving you 
  • Asking “what if?” questions, and most importantly, using them as a way to expand rather than limit possibilities 
  • Supporting this empowering thought process with cognitive evidence and experiential tactics
