Hey guys –
Given these two very common belief statements:
What makes me good enough or important is approval from others
If I make a mistake or fail I'll be rejected
Mistakes and failure are bad
Is the use of “or” “and” etc effective in removing beliefs OR should we remove the belief using a separate statement:
What makes me good enough is approval from others
What makes me important is approval from others
If I make a mistake I'll be rejected
If I fail I'll be rejected
Mistakes are bad
Failure is bad
Please advise. Thank you.October 3, 2016 at 9:24 am#24967Peter BunyanPSTEC User
Given that with PSTEC generally it is best to work with short simple statements, your amended seperate statements are better. It might help if you make them more specfic, that is, what mistakes, what precisely are you afraid to fail at now?

I do agree with Peter. Short, snappy and specific sentences are the way to go, in my experience.
A lot of “belief work” out there can be quite generic. Generally, though, there will be just variations on a theme. What is real for you?
“Mistakes and failure are bad” could “knock out” that negative sense.
As Peter mentioned, however, it would be worth relating those words to your own experiences of life.
What IS “failure”? How would you know you have failed? How would you feel if you failed?
“Failure” is just another word to describe our experience. It's not “out there.” One person's failure is another person's success.
As well as working on the beliefs, continue your brilliant work of neutralising the emotions – imagine “failing”, and then continue to CT.
You mentioned in another post that your sensory acuity is continuing to grow, as you continue to do this work. I know that it is opening up new possibilities for you, and new ways of seeing people and life, in general.
To that end, I would suggest thinking about context. A lot of beliefs will be contextual. In the context of “failure” or mistakes, would that only affect you in a certain context (e.g. the workplace) or around certain people (authority types, relatives etc.)?
In other words, if you were in an empty room and completely unmonitored, would you worry about making a mistake?
I bring these points up not to be philosophical, but to help you target the most pertinent and relevant beliefs/feelings.
I hope that helps.
