It's a Boy

God is great!

There's this couple I know who's been trying to conceive for a long time.

After about eight long years of trying and going through fertility treatments, they're finally pregnant with their first child...

.... which brings me to a very important topic I wanted to discuss with you today: What your "Beliefs" have to do with stuttering

Let me explain.

Almost all of our behaviours and feelings are caused by beliefs and conditionings.

Procrastination?

It's caused by beliefs like:

- Mistakes and failure are bad
- I’m not good enough
- What makes me good enough or important is doing things perfectly

etc

Approach anxiety?

It's caused by beliefs like:

- I’m a bother to people
- Relationships are difficult
There’s something wrong with me
- Women don’t want to be bothered
etc

Stuttering?

- People are not interested in what I have to say
- If I don't speak fluently it means I am stupid
- Stuttering makes me look like a fool
etc

So how do you know whether you have a specific belief or not?

Simple.

Just say the belief out loud and see if you emotionally connect with it or not.

If it resonates deep down within you...

Even if a tiny bit of it feels true to you...

It means you have that belief.

Sometimes, as grownup adults, we have a difficult time acknowledging that we have these negative beliefs.

Often people feel acknowledging such beliefs is a sign of weakness, so they suppress knowledge of any such beliefs.

In order to not appear weak, some clients would say things like "Well 90% of it has gone, I just have work on myself a little".

Well....

Sorry for the lack of a better example....

But these beliefs about stuttering - they're like carrying a child in the womb, you're either pregnant or you're not. There's no "sort of".

You either have these negative beliefs or you don't. There's no "little bit"!


So my point is, if these belief statements feel true to you at any level, it means it is influencing your stuttering behaviour, regardless of whether or not you acknowledge it's existence.

How to get rid of these beliefs?

Step number one is to open your mind to this whole idea of the relation between stuttering and beliefs.

Step number two is to be aware and start noticing what you are thinking and feeling during the moments when you get speech blocks.

In Never Stutter Again, I teach you how to find these underlying beliefs and what the sources of these beliefs are.

Then I walk you through a step by step process of dissolving these beliefs. Trust me, it's easier than it sounds.

I don't know of any other course that approaches stuttering from this angle.

That's why I call it a "mindset" training. Because it doesn't teach you a bunch of tricks or shortcuts, it literally re-wires your brain for a clear, stutter-free speech.

But it only works if you put the effort and make it work.

There ain't no magic pill!
