Right from the time of our birth to this very moment as you read this line, you have been consistently programmed to act in a manner that may be detrimental or beneficial to you.
Most of the programming comes from the people you meet day in day out. Other sources are, books, TV, movies, internet to mention a few.
Let’s take stock. Create a table as below:
|List of people/other sources||Positive (+) or Negative (-) impact||Remarks|
Such an analysis will give you a lot of insight. Take each item on the list and check how the influence is enabling or inhibiting you.
You may be surprised at the results. Once you know where the problems lie, you can then begin to take corrective measures.
For example, if a certain person is having a negative impact on you can decide to eliminate contact or find other solutions to minimize the effect on you.
This is an exercise that needs to be done periodically, at least once in 3 to 6 months.
You will be well on the way to eradicate negative programming and reinforce the positive programming if you do this periodically.
