In order to have strong beliefs it is important that we have a solid base. There are certain specific requirements to building our empowering beliefs. These are the pillars of Belief.
Trust – Most people need evidence in order to believe. This makes their ability to behave limited. Trust, however, gives us the ability to believe even in the absence of scientific proof. Trust allows us to believe despite our doubts. Trust also allows us to believe in ourselves and others, even beyond our mistakes.
When we are children we should trust our parents, teachers and mentors. As we grow, we must learn to choose who to trust.
Defining Belief - Part 2 of 2

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.
