PER-K® (Possibilities•Energy•Results—Key to Sustainable Success)
is about self-discovery, change, and success.
Our Beliefs Establish the Limits of What We Can Achieve!
What is PER-K and how does it work?
PER-K® is a proven process that can dramatically increase personal and professional effectiveness. PER-K is a unique blend of various tools for change, drawing on years of research in neuroscience, as well as utilizing principles of mind/body/spirit integration. It is an easy and effective way to change self-defeating habits and behaviors by changing the self-sabotaging beliefs that drive them. Put another way, PER-K is a user-friendly way to rewrite the software of your mind in order to change the printout of your performance!
The Whole-Brain State Leads to Increased Performance
Recent research in neuroscience indicates that for optimal brain functioning, both hemispheres of the brain must be engaged and activated. The findings of this research basically indicate that the highest level of brain function occurs when both hemispheres of the brain are engaged simultaneously. This is called the Whole-Brain State. From a neuroscience point of view, it is a bilateral, symmetrical brain wave pattern. From a business point of view, this simply means greater functionality and therefore greater performance! This unique state of consciousness also allows for high-speed mindset change, expanded creativity, as well as dramatically improving problem solving and opportunity leveraging. A key benefit of the Whole-Brain State is that it provides a “communication bridge” with the subconscious mind which is the storehouse for our attitudes, values, and beliefs. Contemporary neuroscience tells us that at least 95% of the time our thoughts and behaviors are generated from a subconscious level of the mind and are therefore below the level of our conscious awareness! This means that most people are running their lives on “auto-pilot.” Just as computer software becomes outdated over time, so do subconscious beliefs. PER-K allows you to update your “personal software” in order to meet today’s fast-paced demands in a fast-changing business environment. PER-K works like a “mental keyboard” – a user-friendly method of communicating with the subconscious mind that is simple, direct and verifiable. It increases “cross-talk” between the two brain hemispheres, thereby achieving a more Whole-Brain State, which is ideal for changing subconscious beliefs.
This method of communication enables you to identify the underlying, limiting beliefs and then “edit” and “update” them, so they align with the principles and philosophies that produce lasting successful behaviors, actions and results.
PER-K helps you communicate directly with the subconscious mind, so, you can change old beliefs that sabotage you, into new positive ones that support you, quickly and easily.
These subconscious beliefs create the perceptual filters through which we respond to life’s challenges. They form the basis for our actions and reactions to each situation in our lives. The ability to perform effectively, both personally and professionally, is profoundly affected by such beliefs as “I am competent”, “I am powerful”, or “I am safe.” With beliefs like these, you can undertake challenging projects with confidence and stay focused on the task at hand. But, if you have beliefs like, “I don’t really trust myself to do a good job” or “How things turn out is not really in my control,” you will proceed hesitantly, fearing mistakes, criticism, and failure.
Some other common, “limiting beliefs” are:
- “No matter what I do or how hard I try, it’s never good enough.”
- “The decisions I make usually turn out wrong.”
- “If people knew the ‘real’ me they wouldn’t like me.”
- “I blame others (my boss, co-workers, my spouse etc.) for my problems.”
- “I shouldn’t try anything new or risky because I’ll probably screw it up anyway.”
- “I can’t trust people to support me. All they really care about is themselves.”
- “My opinion doesn’t really matter.”
- “What I do isn’t really important.”
- “It’s not safe to ask others to help me because I can’t trust them to do the job right.”
Beliefs establish the limits of what we can achieve, or as Henry Ford once said, “If you believe you can or if you believe you can’t…you’re right!” This is especially true when the beliefs are subconscious. Most of us agree, and behavioral scientists confirm, that our behaviors are a direct reflection of our beliefs, perceptions and values, generated from past experiences. However, the difficulty seems to be in knowing how to change old negative beliefs, perceptions and values into new positive ones. With so much at stake, it is imperative that we know how to change self-sabotaging beliefs that are limiting us into beliefs that support us.
Like many effective innovations in the world, PER-K was the result of a “blinding flash of the obvious” generated by years of research and thousands of sessions with individuals and groups. For information about the originator of PER-K, click here.
PER-K belief change processes are more than MOTIVATIONAL … they are TRANSFORMATIONAL!

These conclusions (i.e. beliefs, attitudes, values, etc. ) drawn from past experience are stored in the subconscious mind. So, while we may be mostly unaware of their influence on us, they “direct” our observable actions and behaviors.
