The Decision Maker® Processes And Their Uses

We have developed several practical tools based on theDecision Maker® Processes. There are several ways to eliminate beliefs that have been formed earlier in life. There are also techniques to eliminate the causes of negative emotions and to get rid of negative feeling senses (e.g., your sense of yourself or of life). These tools can be found on this web site.

Decision Maker® Belief Process (to eliminate beliefs)
Decision Maker® Stimulus Process (to eliminate the causes of emotions)
The Decision Maker
® Sense Process (to get rid of negative feeling senses)
Decision Maker® Change Perspective Process (to keep us from assigning meaning to events in the first place)
Decision Maker®Process—Changed Environment (for use especially with groups in organizations, to eliminate beliefs when the existing belief was useful in an earlier environment that no longer exists)

The Decision Maker® Expectation Process (to change negative expectations to positive ones)

There are a number of uses or applications for these tools.

One, obviously, is to stop the undesirable and dysfunctional patterns of behavior and feelings that afflict us as individuals.

The Decision Maker® Belief Process will enable you to:

  • Eliminate specific negative self-esteem beliefs, such as "I’m not good enough," "I’m not worthy," and "I don’t matter."
  • Get rid of beliefs and feelings that cause...

Not standing up for yourself
Getting into relationships that don’t nurture you
Staying in dead-end jobs
The inability to experience and express feelings
Worrying about what people think of you

  • Eradicate the beliefs and feelings that cause...

Chronic depression
Eating disorders
Obsessive-compulsive behavior
Anger and violent behavior

  • Get rid of the stress, pessimism, hopelessness, and helplessness that research has shown predisposes us to physical illness.

  • Have the profound spiritual experience that you are the creator of your life, not the creation you normally experience yourself as being. In this non-ordinary state of consciousness you experience that there's nothing missing in your life, anything is possible, and you have no limitations.

More information about the DMBP and other DM Processes can be found elsewhere on this site.

Second is to help organizations "unlearn" what they think is "the truth" about their environment, which is what keeps them from changing and innovating. After they have let go of their beliefs that determine their behavior, change becomes relatively easy and innovation becomes far more effective. Considerably more details on how to use these tools to improve the effectiveness of employees and organizations can be found in Re-create Your Life: Transforming Yourself and Your World.

Yet a third important application for the tools and the axioms that underlie them is in parenting. We would be better parents if we were to know how our behavior as parents gives rise to our children's beliefs, how to facilitate positive rather than negative beliefs, how our own beliefs determine our behavior as parents, and how to help our children eliminate beliefs once they are formed.

The broadest application of these tools is to transform the institutions of society. (Re-create Your Life has a chapter devoted to this issue.) Once you understand the power that beliefs have to shape behavior and limit possibilities, you can see why so many of society's problems seem insoluble. There are no workable solutions given the existing beliefs we have about the institutions of society.
