Recently, Yvonne Hatfield shared with a BT3 group a "tool" that she pulled together to show how many of the basics in the BT experience flow together to bring a choice to either live our contracts or to live the FIBBES (Fixed Beliefs, Fixes Behaviours, Fixes Emotions) that we once believed were the truth as an automatic level. We found ourselves responding to situations in ways that we did not want to and that were costing us the quality of our life and relationships.
The response to her presentation was very positive so she presented it to the Connect group in KC and I shared it with the First Thursday group in NWA. We've refined the tool and put it into a graphic form with the help of Brett Glover.

Yvonne and I recorded a podcast that reviews the tool and we share some examples of using it. This tool, like the words of your contract, can seem underwhelming to other people because they are not a surprise to them - only to us. Folding the tool in half longways so you can only see the "B.S." (Belief System") side you can look back at what most of accepted as Truth before discovering The Truth. Opening it up to see the REAL and BS side can be a little like seeing the arrow in the Fed Ex logo for the first time - once you see it, that's all you can see. It's hard to imagine never having seen it since it's so obvious.
We hope that The Truth about your worth and value embodied in your Contract is like seeing the Fed Ex Arrow. That is, you can't imagine going back to live out of the FIBBES and The Truth of your Contract seems so obvious that not choosing it is just not an option. If it's not that automatic for you yet, here is a way to think back through to where you can make a different choice.
