Belief is having the “YES I CAN” attitude always and no matter what. It is the ability to see the invisible and look beyond the obvious. Belief is the total commitment to a goal (like earning a black belt in martial arts, or making an A in a school subject) so that no possibility of any end, other than the desired one, exists.
Belief is our inner power used with our core values towards the fulfillment of our goals. Absolutely everything we do in our lives, in fact, is based on our beliefs. Every action we take, every decision we make, and every single thing we do stems from what we believe. If we believe this, we do that; if we believe something else, we do something different.
We learn most of our beliefs in our community, environment or the country we grow up in. We learn them mostly from our parents, teachers and mentors.
Defining Belief - Part 2 of 2
Posted: February 16, 2019
Often the beliefs we are most influenced by in our lives are negative and tend to limit us. Positive beliefs, however, are the best way to achieve total happiness and success in life. We must get rid of negative, limiting beliefs, which bring us negative or limited results. We must always choose positive, empowering beliefs, which bring us closer to our goals.
When we choose to use empowering beliefs, we are on the path to unlimited success. The sooner we choose this path, the more we will achieve in life. We must control our beliefs or they will control us. We become what we believe, and what we believe usually becomes reality in our lives.
Of course, it is easier to influence the beliefs of a seven-year-old than it is to challenge the beliefs of a twenty-seven-year-old, because beliefs grow stronger with time. This is why it is so important for us to surround ourselves with positive mentors in the early stages of our lives.
