One of Webster’s definition of the word belief is “something that is accepted, considered to be true, or held as an opinion.” Most of the beliefs we hold about ourselves and the world we live in are based on things we were told as children which we accepted and considered to be true. We then take these beliefs and make them part of our DNA.
For example, maybe you were taught to believe that the world we live in is a dangerous place and to save yourself, you cannot trust anyone or anything.
As a result, you live your life in fear, believing that the world is out to get you and unable to have close, loving relationships. You keep people at a distance as to protect yourself, then wonder why you have few friends.
Our fears become the terrorists that hold us hostage and keep us from the freedom to truly become all that we were created to be. When we see people as distant and untrustworthy, that is what we get. When we see people as friendly and kind, we find people who are both and even more.
But how do we change these beliefs? We can begin by training our minds to think and therefore believe differently. Begin to affirm that wherever you go, people are always seeking friendship with me. Then begin gaining evidence that this true because I am always meeting people who are kind, loving and friendly
Try this on whatever beliefs are keeping you from the life you want and the person you want to be.
