A profile by the Institute of Noetic Sciences notes that Morty Lefkoe “made a series of discoveries that allowed him to help people make permanent changes in their emotions and behavior.”
His program, The Lefkoe Method, is based on overcoming beliefs that impact our self-esteem, anxiety, confidence, fear of public speaking and other challenges.
Based on working with many clients, he finds that “getting rid of a limiting belief is a lot easier to do than finding the relevant beliefs in the first place.”
In a recent post on his blog, he notes the number of beliefs affecting a problem or issue can vary.
“Some patterns like phobias can be eliminated by getting rid of one belief and one conditioning.
“One client had a fear of small bugs, insects, or rats. It was totally caused by one conditioning: Fear associated with being touched by small insects or animals. When that was de-conditioned, the fear was gone.”
Many problem behaviors or patterns share a lot of the same beliefs, he says, so overcoming a set of beliefs can improve our mental health and life in a variety of ways.
“If you eliminate all the beliefs that usually cause a lack of confidence,” he writes, ‘you also will be eliminating all the beliefs that cause several other problems, such as procrastination, social anxiety, fear of rejection, seeking approval, perfectionism, high levels of stress, and the critical ‘little voice’ in our heads.”
