22-102 Belief

Today’s Mandala

“Your chances of success
in any undertaking
can always be measured
by your belief in yourself.”

— Robert Collier

“We only see what we want to see;
we only hear what we want to hear.
Our belief system is just like a mirror
that only shows us what we believe.”

— Don Miguel Ruiz

“Keep your dreams alive.
Understand to achieve anything
requires faith and belief in yourself,
vision, hard work,
determination and dedication.
Remember all things are possible
for those who believe.”

— Gail Devers

Today’s MotD asks us to review our beliefs, whether they be about things outside of ourselves or beliefs about ourselves, to determine which of them still hold true for us and which need to be revised or released.

Britannica.com defines belief as:

“a mental attitude of acceptance or assent toward a proposition without the full intellectual knowledge required to guarantee its truth.“

More importantly we’re being asked to check in with our core beliefs, especially those that are likely to be holding us back from our true potential.

At BetterRelationsihps.org.au they offer an in-depth post about core beliefs: what they are, how to identify them, and how to change them. They state: ”Core beliefs dictate the rules we live by. Everybody has them. They are formed in the early years of our lives, and they are based on our thoughts about our experiences, about the things we see other people do, and about the advice others give us while we are growing up.”

Because they are formed in early life they tend to be based on child-like or adolescent thinking. Now as adults it’s time “to consciously change them to a healthier, more adult thinking style”.…. because ”negative core beliefs can have a huge effect on our self acceptance, self worth, and self esteem.”

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”

— Henry Ford
