You Are What You Think!

You Are What You Think!

Have you experienced that whenever you wanted to change something about your life, but kept finding that none of your actions lead to any permanent change? For example, you’ve been working hard to achieve success in overcoming a destructive habit or creating more happiness, and yet cannot seem to achieve any lasting change. Often, this is because your behaviour may have changed, but your mind hasn’t! 

Our thoughts and beliefs have immense power to shape our lives. When you think of a good thought, it creates a good feeling. For example, the positive thought “I can do it!” creates a good feeling of confidence. In turn, the good feeling leads to positive behaviours and actions, such as tackling a task which you’ve been procrastinating for a long time. Likewise, when you think a bad thought such as “I cannot do it”, it will create a feeling of doubt and dejection. Hence, the behaviours become mirrored in our lives by the thoughts that we think, and as a result, you might continue to procrastinate more on completing a particular task. In the words of Henry Ford, “If you think you can, you can. If you think you cannot, you will prove it to yourself.”

In Bruce H. Lipton’s book The Biology of Belief, the author delves into detail about the power of conscious and subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is hundreds of thousands of times more powerful than the conscious mind, as it affects most of the decisions we make in our lives according to the beliefs that are held by the subconscious. Many times, we fail to change an unpleasant habit despite our willpower and consistent efforts. This is because the habit has been so strongly ingrained and programmed in our subconscious mind, that the efforts made by our conscious mind will hardly make any effect on changing the habit. Breakthrough Coaching with NLP is a great way to discover your exact negative core beliefs, and helps to easily transform them into positive ones.


For example, on your computer, there is a document which displays some text that you don’t like. If you repeatedly ask the computer to change the text on the document, it won’t be able to do so. Neither will it change if you try to smash the computer! In order to change the text, you will have to open the document and work according to the word processing software to get the text you want to see. Similarly, if you wish to transform your life more effectively, you will need to eliminate the negative beliefs that are installed in the subconscious mind with Breakthrough Coaching with NLP, and then reprogram it by installing new beliefs.

Beliefs are so strong, that they can change, alter, and transform our body’s cells and genes. You might remember an interesting scene from the movie, Taare Zameen Par. The art teacher played by Aamir Khan tells the rude and cursing father of the dyslexic child, Darsheel, about the Solomon Islands. On those islands, the tribals do not cut down a tree. They surround the tree and curse it for hours every day. Within a few weeks, the tree dries up and becomes dead.

Most of us might find this example very difficult to believe; how can intangible and invisible thoughts and words kill a tree? When the tribals of Solomon Islands curse a tree, they are actually installing negative and harmful beliefs in the tree’s mind (yes, trees do have minds too!). Within a few days, those negative beliefs change the molecular architecture of the tree and kill it from inside. The same way that the negative beliefs damage the tree from within its mind, our negative beliefs are harmfully impacting us on a cellular level, thus leading to physical ailments in addition to mental and emotional problems. It is possible to uncover and transform negative beliefs using Breakthrough Coaching with NLP. One of the techniques known as Timeline Technology helps to get to the root of the cause of the core belief, release it, and help to effortlessly change your entire life from that moment forward, by installing the desired belief.


2500 years ago, when the Buddha said that “you are what you think”, he was not articulating a random philosophical theory. Actually, he was describing a scientific fact which is now proved correct by Quantum Physics and Molecular Biology. Buddha spoke about subconscious mind and its unfathomable power over our lives, which he called it ‘Alay Vigyan’, or ‘store consciousness’. This is the part of mind where all our beliefs and experiences are stored; and they dictate our life from there.

This also works If you are a parent and you keep cursing your child in the name of constructive criticism, you are installing beliefs in their mind which will keep harming them forever. Our inner child becomes stuck in such moments of having experienced intense negative emotions during childhood. This is known as an ‘ECHO’, which becomes stuck in our energy field. With Matrix Reimprinting, one can release and transform the event that took place in the past by ‘becoming’ the ECHO, so as to empower the inner child. By doing this, one eradicates the learnt beliefs and reshapes the future.


If you keep appreciating your child in a sincere way, you are installing beliefs in their mind which will help them for their entire life. Likewise, be careful of what you keep saying to yourself. Repetition of words and thoughts is the best way to install a belief in your subconscious mind. If you keep saying you are a loser, don’t be surprised if you become one within a few months or years! And if you have friends who keep saying such things to you, there is no harm in saying a quick goodbye to them. Maybe you value the friendship a lot, but you must value yourself a little more.

To sum up, I would like to share what Charlie Chaplin once said to his grandson: “Even when I was in the orphanage, when I was roaming the streets trying to find enough to eat to keep alive, even then I thought of myself as the greatest actor in the world. I had to feel that exuberance that comes from utter confidence in yourself. Without that, you go down to defeat.”
