If you can dream it, you can do it. ~ Walt Disney

In this video I’ll share my own insights on what’s required to break bad habits so you can master change quickly. I’ll also share how your mental files create blinds spots that prevent you from “seeing” new opportunities.

We normally get a blind spot (also known as a scotoma):

  • from limiting beliefs that don’t support us on the journey towards our goals
  • in our inability to see character traits in ourselves that others see as obvious
  • in our inability to perceive solutions to a problem when we’re in an unresourceful energetic state

And if you don’t think you have any blind spots, then make sure to watch this video clip. It really sends the message home. Once you watch the video be sure to leave your thoughts down below.

    Thank you for this amazing Charlie Chaplan Video Steve. I had heard several times about the inability of the mind to perceive reality. However, never have I comprehended it like I do now. I will never forget this amazing video…and refer to it whenever I have a problem to which I can’t seem to find a solution.

    This video is quite amazing. The nose sticks out but in my observation the “internal face” turns counter to the external face too! A double trick! And as Chaplin wears a hat, dare I say a “hat-trick”?

    Believe it or not I didn’t see it until at the third viewing I paused it on hollow and saw the ‘normal’ face.

    Steve hi,
    Like the way you illustrate your ideas … with interesting facts and figures … and the particularly powerful Charlie Chaplin illusion … and the ramifications this has for introducing change … in circumstances where we don’t know what we don’t know. I am particularly looking forward to seeing how your insights unfold.
    Best wishes,

    Thanks, Steve
    What you’ve said and how you’ve said it go’s along way to describe why I’m struggling with the changes I want to make. Big ships turn slowly,but they do turn. Maybe I’m exactly where I’m meant to be,I just can’t see it.
    Like the mask,because I can’t see the wake, I don’t know yet if I’m turning…catch my drift?
    Thanks again.

    I just wanted to say, great video!
    I saw mind tricks before but I think this has topped it all. I especially enjoyed the narration during the piece because it helps you focus on what is going on and tobe aware.

    Hi Steve, I agree absolutely with your point on the power of the subconscious. The Charlie vieo is fascinating. It proves the power of the subconscious with it’s dependence on your current paradigm – beliefs, values, perceptions. So, to get what you want, shift your paradigm. I guess that’s where the fun begins.

    Steve, I tried to force my mind to keep the mask hollow and could not do it. Really interesting to see that even if you tell yourself it has to be one way, the mind has a mind of its own. Nice example.

    Hey Don,

    Yeah, this example blew my mind wide open!! It’s no doubt that the subconscious beliefs we hold have a way of masking our reality.

    So, our subconscious needs to be aligned with our conscious goal.

    Having said that, how then does one change the subconscious thoughts to match up with a big goal?

    Oh My Goodness Me – that is so incredible. Like so many of the other comments, I’ve tried to just see the pink plastic inside of the mask but it’s impossible. Thanks Steve, loving your work. It’s been very helpful to me at a time when I’ve needed it most. Looking forward to vid 3

    Thanks for the video…it really drives home the point of how your subconscious mind makes you see things differently from how they may actually be or how othres may see them.

    funny because as i was watching the chaplin video over for the first time i saw the inside of the mask only as the inside of the mask and i couldn’t understand what the guy was talking about. it honestly looked to me like the inside was indented (which it is in fact). it was only until i understood what he was trying to say and then watched it again that i found myself unable to see it as indented anymore.

    Thanks Steve for sharing the illusion video.
    I have struggled for a long time in my life to change some habits. I tried hard sometimes and failed repeatedly, and finally I quit. I now understand why. Really eye opening!
    I am waiting for the next videos. cheers!

    XD I had to try hard to see that it WASN’T hollow! Had to pause the video and stare because I knew it was a mask and for the entire 1:30 I saw a mask. Then I paused it, a second go round, and FINALLY saw the nose “sticking out”. However, now I am having difficulty achieving my original perception that the nose isn’t “sticking out”! Haha

    I see your point. I have been fired from a few jobs and always for the same reason, I did not fit in. My perception was work hard, be punctual and do the best job possible. That was my perception. The reality was, I made the other employees look bad beause I did a much beeter job than expected. Most of the workers and supervisors were there because they had to work. They did just enough work not to get fired. I enjoy working and compete against myself to do better and be better. There for in reality, it was a club for them.
