Beliefs make you or break you. Whatever you believe in becomes your reality.
What’s most interesting about beliefs is that they don’t have to be the ultimate truth to have power—all that matters is how much you believe in them.
If you believe that you’re a victim, then you become a victim. If you believe that you’re in charge of your life, then you become in charge of your life.
Beliefs are always a choice. You’re always the one who chooses whether to disempower yourself or to empower yourself through your beliefs.
Beliefs are simply the vehicles we think will bring us the most happiness; whether that happiness comes by disempowering yourself as a victim (it’s not my fault), or by empowering yourself as a creator (it’s up to me).
What separates successful people from the rest comes down to their beliefs. While successful people see no limits, everyone else is still stuck in a prison of their own making—a prison of limited beliefs.
Always strive to create the most empowering beliefs possible without hurting yourself or others. Sometimes, even conscious delusion can help.
For example, if you divorce, reality might suck. But you can choose to believe that it will be an easy process and that you’re better off focusing on your next steps. This will allow you to take the process with more ease and continue moving forward with your life.
Your beliefs will determine how you interact with the world, which in turn will determine how the world interacts with you. The more you believe in something, the more others will believe it too, and the more you’ll make your beliefs a reality, for you are a creator (through your thoughts, words and actions).
With all that said, always allow space between you and your beliefs, so as to remain open to all possibilities of improvement, and so as to not take things personally. In the end, we’re all human and no one knows the ultimate truth.
Finally, be aware of people who look to disempower you. A common example of this is politicians who make everyone a victim by telling them how their life sucks and it’s not their fault—all to get votes and push an agenda.
It is you who decides what your life is about—no one else.
