Your brain and mind work like a computer. Your brain is the hardware. It has wiring and circuitry required for the whole body to function. Your mind, mainly through your thoughts, feelings and beliefs, creates the software programs that run the computer, and these programs directly influence your behaviour and your feelings. They are all interconnected like circuitry.
Your thoughts and beliefs create programs in your brain whether:
You are aware of them or not;
They are helpful or destructive;
They encourage you or hold you back;
They were installed when you were an adult or a child; or
You chose them or someone else installed them for you.
Sometimes, destructive, outdated programs may be running our lives.
Why? Because we have never challenged our thoughts, feelings or beliefs, or evaluated them to see if they still work for us as adults.
