The Science of Success-Top 10 Psychology Studies


In the science of success a lot has changed in just a short period of time. I don’t know if a lot has changed or if professionals are giving watered down advice. Or if they are giving the same advice that keeps people coming back for more which causes them to spend more and more money.

StumbleUpon sends me things they think I might be interested in and here is a story from Psychology Today about the top 10 Psychology Studies of 2010 and the author, a PhD, wrote…

The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I’m thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year. I’ve focused on studies that I personally feel stand out, not only as examples of great science, but even more importantly, as examples of how the science of psychology can improve our lives.

 Each study has a clear “take home” message, offering the reader an insight or a simple strategy they can use to reach their goals, strengthen their relationships, make better decisions, or become happier. If you extract the wisdom from these ten studies and apply them in your own life, 2011 just might be a very good year.


From an opening like that I was looking for some things that would really be helpful. However since I’ve been in the field of getting results for people for over 25 years and have learned and developed ways to help get pretty fast and immediate results the suggestions from the article seemed so outdated.

As an example for breaking a bad habit here was the advice…

What you need to do instead is focus on stopping the behavior before it starts (or, as psychologists tend to put it, you need to “inhibit” your bad behavior). According to research by Jeffrey Quinn and his colleagues, the most effective strategy for breaking a bad habit is vigilant monitoring – focusing your attention on the unwanted behavior to make sure you don’t engage in it. In other words, thinking to yourself “Don’t do it!” and watching out for slipups – the very opposite of distraction. If you stick with it, the use of this strategy can inhibit the behavior completely over time, and you can be free of your bad habit for good.

To Read the full original article:

I’m sorry but this advice is not only hard to do with all the stress and pressure people have today it also adds more pressure and totally ignores the finding from the energy medicine and energy psychology studies and work that has been going on for at least 15 years.

The article had advice on how to break bad habits, how to make things seem easier, how to mange your time better,and how to be happier plus other subjects as well. The only problem with the advice it was more common sense than actual how to go about changing something so you could tell with in a very short period of time that you were improving your situation.

It seems this advice from 2010 is outdated before the end of 2011. In fact if you want to get better and faster results  with the science of success a very easy and thorough way, that won’t take you months and will address all 10 of the top psychology studies, is to align your core beliefs.

When your core beliefs are not aligned with each other and you they cause you problems and keep you from being successful. Every one of the 10 top psychology studies would have had much better results by learning the process to align your core beliefs . Now, if you want to be more successful align your core beliefs and get success done for you.
