UTAR Centre for Corporate and Community Development (CCCD) organised a webinar titled “Beef Up Your Self-Belief” on 17 December 2021 via Zoom and Facebook Live.
This is the second webinar, following the first of its series titled “Lockout Your Lockdown Anxieties – Smash Work From Home Anxieties” which was held on 19 November 2021.
The webinar was delivered by Neuro-Linguistic Programming Life Coach and Trainer Chokmun Soong and moderated by Faculty of Arts and Social Science (FAS) Department of Psychology and Counselling lecturer Sanggari Krishnan.
The three main focuses he shared throughout the webinar were awareness of one’s belief; the impact of one’s beliefs on their life; changing one’s negative and limiting beliefs. “There is a saying that says ‘If you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them’. When you believe in something, you prove that it is. So, these are how important our beliefs are. I can even go beyond that to say that beliefs cause war, build love. Belief can make you cry as much as it can make you laugh,” he said, adding that beliefs cause people to act in one way and another.
He asked the participants to list down their own beliefs and divide them into positive beliefs or negative and limiting beliefs. “Choose one major limiting belief that you think, if you change that, it will make a significant difference to your life,” he said.
He further explained, “A lot of beliefs come from our parents, our environment, our teachers, advertisement, and also a big part from our religion.” He also explained the impacts of the beliefs and what to do to change the beliefs.
