Getting dressed yesterday, my brain was telling me:
- “You’re a fraud, Greg”
- “No one will buy your books!”
- “Who do you think you are? You’re a nobody”
My (Sometimes) Grumpy Brain Occasionally Wishes It Still Had Control Over My State of Being
Those were my feelings yesterday morning. Those also happen to be some of the beliefs I used to have – so I’m well acquainted with those feelings. They used to be some of my habitual patterns of thought. I told myself those stories repeatedly for years until they had become some of my “truths”.
Until I learned how and why to use new paradigms from quantum physics to build new beliefs.
And I’ve been using those new paradigms, telling myself better-feeling stories, for over five years now. Technically, what I’ve been doing is telling myself the best-feeling, believable stories possible for over five years. Just what I teach you to do in my Why Quantum Physicists… series of books.
While I’m Not Supposed to Be “In Control” of My Feelings (They Simply Are What They Are), I Am In Control of My Beliefs
Hence, my beliefs have changed. Converse to my feelings yesterday, which I still feel from time to time, I now believe:
- “I am immensely worthwhile”
- “People love my books. Because they are written with an infusion of love for you and an extreme desire to uplift and enhance your life”
- “I am an amazing and valuable person – just as I believe you to be”
So, today, when I have those bad feelings I described earlier, I simply acknowledge and validate them. They are temporary; they are not my state of being and do not reflect my new, true beliefs about myself. They also no longer frighten me because I know they are not my beliefs unless I choose to make them so by repeating and believing them.
Bad Feelings No Longer Form Links In An Unbreakable and Binding Chain
I know that feelings aren’t meant to be stuffed or denied. They are meant to be felt. And depersonalized. And doing that takes away their power; they are no longer links in an unbreakable chain. My feelings are simply my feelings – I am in charge of what my beliefs are. And I take charge of my beliefs via the best-feeling, believable stories I tell myself each day.

So yesterday, although they weren’t wonderful, I simply felt those feelings and acknowledged them. And I also felt a warm glow of confidence that my beliefs are still, and always, my choice. I choose to have beliefs today which align me with my desires. (Click that link to Tweet it) And I choose to be in charge of those beliefs through the stories I tell myself each day.
How about you?
