Your whole life is a result of your beliefs. Your beliefs are a product of your experiences.The direction and quality of your life is based on your beliefs. Beliefs are what your thoughts, expectations and actions are based on.
Your beliefs, depending on what they are, have the power to either build or destroy. A mixture of your childhood influences and authority figures and other social and personal influences are what form your beliefs. We seem to accept them as absolute truths and we land up defending them and living by them, no matter what the cost.
There is proof of this in every culture and religion. We grow up with traditions that society has had for centuries and develop our beliefs around that. You are going to learn more about your beliefs and re-shape the ones that don’t benefit your life for ones that do. You must choose beliefs that will open up to possibility and not ones that hold you back.
You will notice how the disempowering beliefs have held you back in your life. The empowering ones, on the other hand, have given you strength and reinforcement in your life’s choices. You are now at an advantage! You can see more clearly what your empowering beliefs are and begin to add fresh ones that will support you in your goals.
It is possible to change your beliefs. You just have to be clear about what you want to believe and take responsibility for choosing your beliefs yourself! Beliefs are very personal, so in order to move forward by adding new ones to yours, you need to actually want those changes to occur.
It may be hard letting go of some beliefs you have had in the past. If they were good ones you wouldn’t be doing that, so establish whether they are bad and then they have to go.
Taking charge of the beliefs that are almost forced onto us as we grow up must be what you truly believe. You need to believe in the things you are doing in your life and not just follow what has already been proven does not work.
Time to take responsibility! Taking responsibility is very liberating and it should leave you feeling more powerful than before.
