Updates aren’t automatic – for computer software maybe, but not for people. When was the last time you went to sleep and woke up with a revised filing system for beliefs (not as neat and tidy as you might think), renovated resources for information and new ideas, or extra security to safeguard your identity (not your social security number – your actual sense of self)? It doesn’t happen. Usually an event transpires that causes us to realize things are out of sync, or we’re chatting with someone and stumble over an assumption that wasn’t altogether accurate. This is often how new, or corrected information and safeguards are received.
Take the idea of a revised filing system for beliefs. How convenient it would be to have something like a Google labeling system that places an item (or belief) in more than one folder. Then there are the beliefs that can go undetected. They can be commingled with what might be considered a fact. I refer to these as blind beliefs. For example, someone might think that as people grow older, they grow unhealthy. This isn’t a fact; it’s a belief. I hear this often with when I’m talking with people about vacations. “Oh, we won’t be vacationing when we’re in our 70’s. There’s cancer in my family and we’ll be too old to enjoy travel.” Are such individuals programming their future from a belief? If an athlete believes in himself and envisions a victory to help achieve success, wouldn’t the same hold true for everyone? Checking what has been downloaded through the years is vital. Where did the belief originate anyway? Is it valid or productive? Should it be deleted?
Think about situations where people find themselves out of sync. Every day people are surprised to learn they have high blood pressure, cancer, or might lose their job. Maybe someone has simply veered off the path of their dream, or maybe their dream has changed. Usually these types of situations don’t happen overnight.
To be in front of a problem and to be assured of top performance, it is important to take time to self-assess, reset priorities, refresh, and reconnect. Because updates aren’t automatic, we need to take time to update ourselves. A Google search will not have the answers. I’ll explore ideas like these and many others, all dressed in tech attire in the SELF Search Blog. Join with me and share your unique perspectives.
I wish there was an update that could filter all the junk that finds its way into my internal conversations; it would
sure save some time.
