Your brain is wired to be right. Yep. Hardwired. Once you make a decision about what you choose to believe (Money is the root of all evil, I’ll never be able to afford to retire, all single people over age 40 are goods, the world is going to hell in a handbasket) your brain programs itself to find proof that you’re right. Which means that it literally filters through all of the information that is forever coming at you in a given day, ignoring any information that might contradict your belief and noticing only the information that supports your belief, thus reinforcing the idea that you are, in fact, right.

But that doesn’t change the fact that there is still information out there that contradicts your belief, it’s just that you’re (or your brain, rather) has chosen not to notice it.

So the question becomes: Is this a good thing or a bad thing? That depends. Are your current beliefs making you happy?

If they are, great! No reason to change them. Keep doing what you’re doing.

But if your beliefs are not making you happy, then it’s time to give yourself permission to be wrong (for all the right reasons).

But if your beliefs are not making you happy, then it’s time to give yourself permission to be wrong (for all the right reasons).

Here’s how to intentionally shift your beliefs in 3 steps:

  1. Identify which beliefs are making you unhappy.
  2. What would you like to believe instead?
  3. Start looking for “proof” that your new belief is true.

For example, if your old belief was that the world is going to hell in a handbasket, try avoiding the news for a week or two. Instead, subscribe to positive news sites like the goodnewsnetwork, or dailygood.org and as you’re out in public, start to look for people performing good deeds or offering kind gestures like a smile, a helping hand or letting a car turn ahead of them in traffic.
