A belief, AKA paradigm is created from the thoughts we think over and over. We walk around all day long stating our beliefs and we rarely bother to question them to see what they are creating in our lives. Today I want to share with you how to challenge your beliefs and your thoughts.
Why? Because every result we have in our relationship, health, weight, career, business, life is a manifestation of what is taking place in our mind.
That says it all. Our thoughts and beliefs are worth noticing so let’s dive in.
A great way to challenge them is to TUNE IN using these prompts.
Begin by just dumping the thoughts and beliefs down on a piece of paper. I call this a brain dump.
Next, choose one thought or belief and take it through the T.U.N.E.I.N model.
❣️T- Is it TRUE? We often say things like they are facts because we believe them to be truths when in reality they are just thoughts we are thinking. Let’s use the example of “I don’t have time”. This was a thought I truly believed at one time. I’d say it often. I’d state it as fact. I didn’t question it. Is it true? Do you really not have time or is it just not a priority? What IS true?
❣️U- Is it USEFUL to think this way? If we stick with the example above, how does it help you in life to believe that you don’t have time? Does it move you forward in your life?
❣️N-Is it NECESSARY? Once you know what you are thinking and believing you can decide if it’s necessary to keep thinking and believing it. “I don’t have time” is not necessary or constructive in any way. Once you know if your thought/belief is necessary you can ask yourself, “Why am I choosing to continue to think this?” “What purpose does it serve?” When you are courageous enough to ask these questions you’ll likely find the answer to why you’ve held onto the thought/ belief.
❣️E- Does it EXCITE you to take action? Does it inspire you? Believing you don’t have time likely keeps you stagnate and stuck. When you believe this you don’t create time. You aren’t open to other ideas about time. You’re not inspired to look at and choose how you prioritize your time.
❣️I- Are you being IN LOVE with yourself? We are often our most harshest critic. We think beating ourself up is helpful or will be motivating, but really it just keeps us feeling inadequate and not good enough. Is believing “I don’t have time” being loving and kind to you or is it just one more belief that takes your power and love for yourself away?
❣️N-Are you being NON-JUDGMENTAL or are being judgmental and making yourself incompetent when you think “I don’t have enough time”? Judging goes back to be kind to you. When you judge yourself, you are judging what you do and don’t do, and you are judging others. It’s not useful.
Now it’s your turn. Take a thought or belief you have and put it in this model. T.U.N.E.I.N and decide if it’s worth keeping.
P.S. Did you can be excited about reaching your goals without continually falling out of belief, stopping and starting, and being confused about who you serve and how.
You’ll enjoy the feelings of pride, ease, fun, and accomplishment as you take the steps every day toward the results you want.
I can help you create the new beliefs and thoughts that will get you new results you want. You don’t have to feel stuck with parts of your life you think you can’t change.

I’m taking clients who (1) don’t want to wait another 5 or 10 years to make their dreams come true, and (2) are determined to get the results they want not the ones they think they are stuck with.
