Challenges in rewiring beliefs?


Rewiring beliefs poses several challenges, particularly due to the deep-rooted nature of internal narratives and self-perceptions. highlights that changing beliefs and internal scripts is difficult because they form part of our unconscious mental structure, protected by numerous psychological defense mechanisms. This makes them persistent and resistant to quick changes. Huberman suggests awareness of these beliefs is the first step, but altering them is a complex process that often requires extensive time and effort, beyond what quick-fix solutions or short therapeutic interventions can offer 1.

This slow process is exacerbated by societal expectations for rapid solutions, which are often unrealistic when dealing with ingrained personal beliefs. The patience and persistence needed for changing these deeply set patterns are frequently underestimated.
