Keep Asking ‘How Can I’ Until Your Mind Supplies The Answer

By Bill Harris in Intention on March 30th, 2008 / 3 Comments

When you see yourself as being at the effect of some cause over which you have little or no control, you feel helpless. In effect, you actually become helpless, because whatever you believe tends to manifest in reality. When you see yourself as being at effect, you automatically filter out all the possible ways you could create something different, and all the ways you have personal power. You do not see them at all. They disappear from your awareness, as if they did not exist at all.

Those who think they are at effect look outside of themselves for some cause on which to blame what is happening. When you do that, such a cause will ALWAYS appear, even it isn’t really the cause. The result is that you feel helpless, and ARE helpless.

Those who believe they are AT CAUSE, of course, do not contact me for help in the first place. They realize that, even if they cannot see the connection, whatever is being created in their life comes from something in them, and if they can find what it is, they can change it. Usually, it involves what they have focused their attention on.

People who think they are at effect use words like “can’t” a lot. Another favorite is “I tried.” When you say “I can’t,” your brain steps right up and supplies you with lots of reasons why you can’t, and it also blocks the creative part of your mind from figuring our how you can. Thus, the fact that you can’t comes true, further reinforcing your belief that you really can’t. My suggestion to such people is that instead of saying “I can’t” they begin to ask “How can I?” and keep asking until their brain supplies them with the answer they want.

“I tried” is another favorite of people who think they are effect. The entire presupposition behind “I tried” is failure. No one who succeeds ever says “I tried.” They say “I did it.” Trying begins with the belief in failure. To try, you must make pictures in your head of failing. My suggestion is to make pictures in your head of accomplishing whatever it is you want to accomplish. When you do this, you give your brain a signal to figure out how to do it. When you “try,” you give your brain a signal to figure out a way to fail.

So even though you may think you have lots of evidence that you are at the effect end of the cause and effect spectrum, you are actually at cause. Even if you find this hard to believe, begin to act “as if” you really are at cause. Assume that you are in control, and ask “How can I?” until you get the answer.

So now you have two huge clues to success. The first is to focus your mind on what you want, not on what you don’t want or are afraid of. The second is to begin with the assumption that you are at cause, that you can decide what to think, what to picture inside, and what to focus your mind on – and that when you do this, you brain will figure out how to make whatever you focus on happen.

I want you to know that if you do these two things, you will change your life in ways you never thought possible.

So there are two things you can do to take change of your life. One is relatively passive, and that is to faithfully use your Holosync soundtracks everyday. The other is to begin to look at the basic assumptions you’ve made about yourself and where you fit in the world, and to be willing, despite what may appear to be true for you, to adopt the assumptions of those who are already creating what they want.

Two of these basics are:

1. focus on what you want, and
2. realize that you DO have creative control over what happens to you.

And, if you take the online version of the Life Principles Integration Process (click on the link at the beginning of this article to listen to a free preview lesson), I will go into this subject with you in much more detail, and make sure you “get it.”

Once you know a few key things, life becomes much easier and much smoother. You can do this, I promise!

This is why Holosync is so powerful in changing lives – it calms the part of us that is afraid, that feels unsafe. Another way to say this is that it raises your threshold for what you can handle coming at you from the world. Holosync clears your mind, and gets rid of the impulse to focus on what you don’t want. Then, it strengthens your ability to focus on what you do want, which allows you to more powerfully and more quickly create it.

If you haven’t yet joined The Holosync Solution and you’d like to experience the kind of dramatic positive change Holosync audio technology can create in your life, read my full introductory letter which details all the benefits and reveals the scientific proof behind Holosync (and includes an extremely attractive, money-saving offer).

    Bill,I have been using Holosync for 4 yrs. and completed your Life Principles Integration Process (still learning from it).
    One area of my work as a life coach is working with addicts moving into sober living and wondering if you have every worked with addicts and do you have any 3-5 mentoring statements for me.

    I use your standards of support when I coach entrepreneurs on building support systems.
    You have been a great mentor to me and I greatly appreciate all that you have created.

    Endless Blessings

    It is mind boggling, to ask such a question, and helps in brain storming, and releases all the unrequired things from the brain, and helps the brain to function appropriately. It is one way self critical analysis.

    Dear Mr Tom,

    This is what a good thinker does and becomes successful in his life and all the missions he/she takes up. It is the question of how one takes his own responsibility forward.

    Thanks for the article at a nice time,
