Hi Alrpstec,

Thanks for your post and thanks also to Ed23 and Brian for those great contributions.

Alrpstec, as well as what has already been suggested, you might also consider these beliefs:

“I'll never figure this out”
“I'm not a natural”
“I don't have what it takes”

Think of these in the context of your music and CT all feelings of “never figuring it out”, that others know better and can make music more naturally than you.

You can then CT the emotions, whilst imagining these beliefs are true.

And…on top of what Brian and Ed23 have suggested, you could use PQT to add:

“When I make a mistake with my music, I feel chilled”
“As I relax more when making music, the better it flows now”

With experimentation, I have found that PQT works brilliantly in installing counterexamples too. These may not be essential, but they can be very effective for some people who believe they “should” believe something negative about themselves.

So, if someone believed “I'm not enough”, you could layer in “I've always been enough, and I can relax now” and/or “I forgot all the ways I truly am enough now”

Alternatively, you could see if you can find any “evidence” for not being enough. These can include:

– historical events like bullying (workplace, school etc.)
– financial worries
– not feeling as “progressed” as others
– not getting promotions in work
– not being employed
– having a difficult childhood (and all that that might entail)
– feelings that you inherently lack something (this can be tied in with previous concerns with mental health)

So, take your “evidence” and logically counter it.

For instance, if your “evidence” is “my parents always told me I was not smart enough”, you can layer in (with PQT) suggestions like:

“My parents' motivational skills were not good enough”
“My parents thought I was not enough and they were wrong”
“My parents knew I was enough but didn't know how to show it”
“I can forgive my parents for getting me so wrong”
“I was not motivated enough then, but I was always enough”

For bullying:

“Those kids didn't appreciate me enough and that was their mistake”
“Anyone who bullies doesn't feel enough, and it wasn't about me”
“The bullies didn't have good enough strategies to feel OK”

For finances:

“No matter what is in my bank account, I am always enough”
“Even if I make mistakes, I am always enough”
“No matter what anyone thinks about my bank balance, I'm enough”

For work-related issues (like not getting desired roles), these may help:

“Some jobs were not a great fit for me but I was always enough”
“Maybe that company doesn't have enough wisdom to employ me”
“Maybe I can be a better fit in a job that is good enough for me”
“Maybe my resume wasn't enough for them, but I'm enough”
“Maybe I haven't learned enough yet, but I'll always be enough”

Thanks again,
