Control – Alt – Delete

Windows users are familiar with the function of hitting these three keys. Virginia Stair, a family therapist wrote that keeping things familiar is the strongest instinct of human beings. We want to change our life for the better but for many people leaving our zone of familiar surroundings and self-image is confusing and for some fearful. We make mental “maps” of how the world works and then place our self in the world; for successful people like Walt Disney, Art Linkletter, Dr. Kevin Leman and others it functions very well. When it stops serving our best interests it’s time for a tune up.  

Our personal map can be stuck on “present” in that we have become comfortable with our present circumstances we view it as what our life IS. This is an incomplete and fictitious picture of who we are and what we are capable of accomplishing in life. We can re-program our mind by changing our thoughts; reading inspirational books and informative books on topics we are interested. Next by setting goals with a longer term view in mind we can grow and change. Learning should be a lifelong process both in what we accomplish and through study.


I strongly believe in the use of Mind Maps as a tool to pull out your ideas using word association and allowing your mind to respond.

Human beings generalize by applying a general rule or circumstance to our life in total. We delete thoughts and events that don’t fit into our subjective reality and distort reality to make it fit into our mental map of our world. Control our thoughts, create an Alternate course then Delete dysfunctional relationships.

I was in my 20’s and managed a ware house for Products Research Chemical, Inc. in Glendale, California. One day I needed some temporary help so we called Manpower to send a man over to help with counting and tracking of our inventory. As I watched him work I noticed that he was probably a natural left-handed person. Later in the day I saw a hand written note and that he used his right hand to scribble his message, not only that but the hand writing was atrocious it looked like he had arthritis- the writing was nearly illegible. I commented to him that I thought he was left-handed because it looked to me that his left hand was dominant. When I mentioned that his writing was illegible he told me a story. When he was a boy in grade school teachers forced the left handed students to write with their right hands!

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else- this is the greatest accomplishment.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Belief becomes behavior which creates events and relationships that turn into results. By changing our beliefs, and modifying our behavior which in turn set up new relationships and different events which then become positive results leading to self-actualization. What can I create today that empowers myself to make my life’s vision into reality?

We are the author of our own life and we have the power to make choices every day eliminating fear and limitation and create our own vision just like Arnold Schwarzenegger, to create the life of our desire.
