Who Told you that?
What is a belief and how do we come to believe? Often it can be a
ridiculous comment or something you read, that resonates with something
in your subconscious mind. If you want to start evaluating some of your
beliefs, look at your behaviors.
Look at your Behaviors
If your impatient, it’s because you believe it will help you get
what you want sooner. If you complain, it’s because you believe it helps
you feel better about things you can’t change. If your defiant, it’s
because you believe it works to solve problems. If your a critic, it’s
because you believe you need to compare yourself to others. If your
envious, it’s because you believe what you have isn’t enough. If your
jealous it’s because you don’t believe in love.

A lot of what we believe is wrong, especially when it comes to what
we think about ourselves. Once you become aware that a lot of what you
believe is wrong, you can start to change the belief. But awareness comes
first, and often times it never comes at all. If you’ve become aware
that some of what you believe is wrong, you’ve been given a gift. The
gift of self-awareness is precious and can open the door to a whole new
you. It’s your choice if you walk through or not.
As always, thanks for visiting. Dave
