Wow. Working through the academy has been a life change. I have realized who I AM. As I've been going through the lessons I have heard what I've always know yet didn't have the words to articulate. What a blessing. The first time I heard Bentinho I had just finished a fiction novel about a guy's journey from seeking to awakening. It was my story, yet I am at the very beginning of the story. As I listened to Bentinho talk I realized that I wrote his story of awakening, or it sure seems like it.
This lesson is the first that inspired me to write in the forum. Hi everyone! Here's what I got and am doing with it. The lesson has been very helpful for me as a tool to get deep enough to shift my point of view, to shift my beliefs, to shift my feelings, to shift my thoughts, to shift my actions to get new results. It's amazing.
My questions/steps that I have been coaching myself with are Bentinho's but I added a couple because it felt right and it was in what he was saying in the lesson too.
1. What am I feeling? If it feels good keep it up, if not go to 2.
2. What is the belief that produced the feeling?
3. Thank the belief for serving you the way it has to this point in life. Let it know you will try out another now.
4. What is another belief that is as true or truer to you that feels good?
5. Feel good and allow life to unfold for you. Expect the unexpected.
This has helped me with my business. I'm a mortgage guy, lots of sales. My beliefs are what have brought bad feelings while I do the sales activities that I know will bring the results I want. Small shifts have made my communcations enjoyable.
This has helped with my marriage. I have been more able to remain curious and loving and stay the course to have I AM while engaging with my awesome wife and perfect 2 year old.
And it's helped with ... well everything.
Thank you Bentinho and family! I am forever thankful for this work you've offered.
