Change Your Beliefs Change Your Life
Believe in yourself and achieve your true potential
Your beliefs are the thoughts and idea's that you have that go on to define who you are as well as shaping your reality, in fact your beliefs are so powerful that they set the blue print for your life. Your current set of beliefs will determine just about everything in your life including
- Where you are at in your life at this present moment
- How successful you are and how successful your going to be in future
- What you achieve and how well you perform
- How happy you are and how you feel
- What direction your heading
What you believe about yourself and this world will be true to your reality, what this means is you have total control over your whole life and your destiny, so it's not a case of how life treats you but how make life happen for you.
Many people want to better their lives, but you cannot make positive changes with old negative beliefs. Your beliefs are a collection of thoughts that have been repeated so many times that they become a belief and what we come to accept and believe as being true, in time will come true in our world.
The good news is your beliefs are not set in stone, this means you can hack into the hardware of your mind and challenge them and even change them to your advantage.
The trouble is, we come into this world with a blank slate and as very young children we are not capable of forming our own beliefs, this means we are totally dependent on the beliefs of others.
If you have confident, happy, positive and successful parents that install positive beliefs into your highly suggestible young mind then you already have am distinct advantage over the average child.
However if you have negative parents who are maybe struggling then you may pick up many unhelpful and limiting beliefs that are not going to serve you very well at all.
As we progress through our childhood we pick up and form many more beliefs based on our experiences and our society conditioning and once we buy into them they will either have a positive or negative impact on us and our lives.
These beliefs could be about money, how intelligent you are, whether you think you're good enough or if you see yourself as confident person or not. If you form the right beliefs then you will be well on your way to a more successful and happy fulfilled life.
But if you install negative beliefs about yourself then you can go onto to live a life of worry, lack, anxiety and struggle. In your early stages of life you are totally reliant on luck and chance and you have little say about the beliefs and idea's you're fed so you have no choice of how your conditioned.
The belief is the first step to positive change
Having a positive belief is the first step before you can accomplish anything and you will struggle to make any progress in life if you don't believe in yourself to where you reach a point and feeling that you know for a fact that you will achieve what your aiming for.
Your mind will seek out beliefs and meaning from the world around you based on your previous experiences and conditioning.
Many of your negative and limiting beliefs were planted in your mind even before you were able to communicate and think properly for yourself. Other destructive beliefs were formed at an early school age before you were mindful enough to challenge them.
When you were young your brain absorbed and accepted any belief that you were exposed to good or bad. And because most people are stuck in a negative state and mindset their mind becomes more focused on survival rather than enjoyment and success.
Once those negative beliefs were planted deep rooted in your subconscious mind your brain would then use all that information it has gathered regardless whether it helped and benefited you as a guideline to set the rule book for all your future thoughts, actions, decisions and behaviours.
Basically you have taken on other people's beliefs to shape and form your future happiness and success. Sadly most people's belief are geared for failure and limitations and for many it has become a habit to anticipate being unsuccessful and things going wrong.
To move forward you need to get into the habit of anticipating success and good things because when you start to expect success it will generate positive feelings that can catapult you to make positive actions and positive results.
Change your limiting beliefs
Because many of your beliefs come from your society conditioning and establishments that are not always moving with the times, this can mean that many of your beliefs are dated and holding you back. These limiting beliefs need to be either uprooted or changed.
Most people rarely stop to question and challenge their beliefs or the beliefs of others so they just run with the masses and if you follow the masses you will be like the masses, where as the highly successfully people tend to question the norm and look at new possibilities and different ways of doing things.
But all is not lost, because you have the ability to swap or dismiss any beliefs that do not support you or where you want to go.
Ask yourself this question. What beliefs are you holding onto that are not serving or supporting you?
What "facts or information" do you keep saying that are not really facts, but rather opinions and statements that are limiting you or holding you back?
When you hear or read something especially if it is negative, do you question it or do you just automatically accept it as being true because you totally trust or accept the source information because negative information is not necessarily right but it can have a powerful negative impact on us.
If you do start to change your beliefs then you will begin to tap into your limitless inner powers and capabilities and you will begin to take control of your life and your destiny so you can start to live your life on your terms instead of the thoughts of others.
The secret is positive believing
Your beliefs will shape your world, but to get the life and things you want your beliefs have to be accepted without doubt and they need to be backed by positive emotions, because if you're telling yourself one thing but your coming from a negative place then nothing is going to change for you.
Lets say your affirming to yourself you're rich and your making a lot of money but you are allowing your current results to determine your feelings then this is going too form two contrasting beliefs and the beliefs that are control your energy will determine your reality.
Your new beliefs need to be matched with a positive energy of zero resistance, this can prove to be very difficult phase for many people to break free of because they allow what is to govern their emotions and their thought processes.
The simple rule is, negative thoughts and beliefs will evoke negative emotions whilst on the flip side positive thoughts will evoke positive feelings, so the key is positive believing.
If your coming from a negative state and you use affirmations or visualizing then you will be wasting your time, because it is the feelings that make the belief powerful and true. You have to feel it first before it can manifest itself into your experience, when you say affirmations you need to have a positive response the same applies with visualization.
If your trying to change your life but you self doubt or feel frustrated about not getting the results you want they that means you don't really believe in the process or yourself.
Positive feelings are an indication that you believe in what your doing and you trust with absolute certainty that what you want is coming to you, it's already done.
To demonstrate this a bit further, you can think about success all day long, day after day after day, for years even, yet you still might not become a success, because if you expect to fail, no amount of success thinking will fix it. This proves that you need positive thoughts backed by positive beliefs.
You can feel as happy and as loving as you want, but if you don't believe you'll actually have a fulfilling and satisfying life, then the chances are you won't attain that sort after satisfying and fulfilling life. If your trying to change a belief but your dominant energy is still negative then you will stay stuck where you are.
When you believe these things work, then they will make a difference, if your belief in affirmations isn't strong, then saying millions of them won't do anything for you. However, if you expect to see magic just because you utter a string of words, it may very well become your reality.
We live our life according to our beliefs, they hold the most power-fullest influence on what we can or can't do or become, in fact beliefs are so powerful they can either make you or break you.
The beliefs you start to create now will have a big impact on your future so with this in mind only create new beliefs that are going to support you and get you to where you want to be.
Everything Is Backed By A Belief
Belief is the driving force behind all successful people, confidence, technology, scientific discoveries and greatness because it sets off the process of the hows and the cans, new inspiring positive beliefs activate the creation forces by opening the door to brand new discoveries and idea's. Having a firm belief will also empower you and give you the passion to carry out the action steps that will be necessary.
The wrong ones can keep you small and feeling stuck, the right ones can make you great, beliefs are the structure of our reality, without them nothing would really exist and we would never move forward, there would be no organization in our world, with them however the "worlds is your oyster" because as the old saying goes, "anything is possible to those who believe" so a simple saying to apply to any attempt to improve or change is, "I can, therefore I will".
Remember the positive I cans create a matching positive energy which will start the process of new beginnings, whilst the I can't trigger a negative energy. To change you have to see beyond the what is and the what has been which means you need to begin to visualize what can and what will be, because the good news is anything is within your capabilities.
From the moment were born and as we journey our way through life we collect a series of beliefs, some are helpful but many are not and they need to be challenged and changed. Because beliefs change people's lives, sometimes for the better but sometimes for the worst, limiting ones keep you stuck in a place where you don't want to be.
There is no debate to the fact that limiting beliefs can prove disastrous, they can inflict a lot of pain and misery, however new empowering beliefs can literally transform your life and take you to a point in your life where previously you had only dream't about.
The trouble is most of our limiting beliefs do not really belong to us, yet we still allow them to govern our lives. The world is evolving all the time, some people are taking their capabilities and talents to new heights which they previously thought were impossible or beyond them, but unless you learn how to challenge and change your old negative beliefs you are going to be left behind, because you cannot advance forward or make positive changes with your old beliefs.
Your mind creates your reality based on what it knows and what it has been programmed to accept as being true so far and it does not understand what is helpful or unhelpful, meaning your beliefs systems do not know whether your beliefs are limiting or supportive, that is up to each individual to decide and then change if any old beliefs are not serving or supporting them.
Because the only real limitations that you have are the ones that you are imposing on yourself, so ditch all the I can't, it's not me and the I am not good enough's because it's time to replace them with some new empowering and inspiring belief systems.
Tell your mind to remove any limiting beliefs should they surface, be mentally strong and avoid letting your mind come up with exscuses and reason to why you can't do or achieve anything.
Beliefs are stubborn things to change, they are programs of thoughts that have been stored in your subconscious mind and as far as your subconscious mind is concerned your beliefs both good or bad are true and they serve you well.
But if you can implant some new positive beliefs that support your desire for change then there are no limits to what you can do or become, because when they quote anything is possible that leaves a very big and forever expanding playing field of new opportunities to venture forth into.
Achieve Everything You Have Dreamt Of
Your beliefs form your character, your personality, your self image, how you act and what you achieve and become. The right empowering ones can change lives, beliefs will help to manifest what you want into your reality.
Beliefs are the king as far as it comes to creating and getting what you want, you live your life by your beliefs, they define you as a person, the right supporting ones can help you move forwards in a positive direction. The wrong ones can be damaging and unhelpful, they can even destroy your life, your reality is the manifestation of the things you believe to be true, both positive and negative.
Our beliefs creates 'reality' in a sense, because what we think determines what we can and can't see, do or achieve. Things are not possible to us merely because we think there not possible, it is only when somebody achieves the seemingly impossible that we all change our perceptions.
A famous example of the power of beliefs is that of Roger Bannister the first man to break the four minute mile, up until then everybody thought it was impossible. After he had achieved it and once it was proved possible many more soon followed suit. Beliefs become dated, the world is constantly changing what served us once may no longer be helpful to us any more.
You only really have one belief system rule and that is, how you think about yourself and your world, your own personal beliefs are not necessarily true or false they are just thought processes that have become true to you. Most people are living their lives governed by the idea's and perceptions of others but sometimes these belief patterns are not helpful and we need to change the rules to suit our own personal needs and dreams.
Definition Of A Belief
What are beliefs? They are a series of idea's that are formed by our past experiences, a kind of certainty and knowing without question or doubting. They are created by how we have handled situations or by other people's experiences.
Beliefs are a serious of thoughts that have been repeated enough times to form a belief, ancient cultures and even some scientists state that beliefs are the matrix of our reality. Change your beliefs and you can influence your outer reality, our feelings help to shape and change our world. We live in a feelings and belief controlled reality, our inner world affects the outer.
The belief comes from the feelings emitted from the heart, the thoughts are in the mind and they are important to hold the idea in place, the emotion is in the body and the two merge in the heart chakra to form a feeling that is believed to be capable of changing the energy field that our reality is built upon.
The dictionary states that a belief is an acceptance that something exists or something is true, beliefs are a set of thought patterns, idea's and perceptions that have been repeated so many times they have formed a belief or a habit of the mind.
Another way of describing them is, it is when you associate two things together. To define what is a belief, it is a thought that you think in relationship with you, your environment and your world.
What you truly believe is true will manifest itself into your experience at some point. Faith is classed as a form of belief, faith is important, but faith can be hard to grasp for many people because it is something you want but it has not yet happened or been seen yet. With faith you have to believe something is going to happen with out question or doubt before it has actually happened.
From a science point of view
Ancient mystics, religious groups and scientists are now starting to think along the same lines. To demonstrate the power of belief, different scientists have performed the same experiments at different times and at different locations. You would think they would get the same results, this however is not always the case, although they have done exactly the same experiment the results have varied.
This has shown that the result of the tests are decided to a degree by the expectations of what each scientists was expecting to find. Quantum physicists are now telling us that, when consciousness searches with the expectation that something will be there it creates it, this means what we expect to happen and find usually does, what we think is true becomes the outcome.
Most scientists already have a preconception and idea about what they expect to find before they set about doing their experiments, This poses the question that, do we discover things or do we create them based on our preconceived beliefs and expectations of what we believe to be true or what we expect to happen.
The Placebo Effect
Sometimes we need something to help us to reinforce a new belief, you can change things through the power of thought alone, however most people like something to help them enforce the changes and improvements the desire. The placebo effect is probably one of the most powerful examples to prove and demonstrate the power of belief.
The placebo effect is sometimes used as a medication substitute, a definition of placebo is to insert a belief through giving them something which actually produces real biological changes in humans. If people think that something will help them then the chances are it probably will, this demonstrates the power of the mind and faith.
Because it creates 'reality' in a sense, because what we think determines what we can and can't see or do. a person is given something like a sugar pill which as no therapeutic effect for a certain condition they have, the person however has no idea of this and they believe that the pill will help them. As long as the patient thinks the pill is genuine then the mere belief alone that the pill will help them does work.
There comes a point when you have to switch from the believing to the knowing with certainty, because what ever you believe will determine your energy and your energy will determine what happens and what shows up for you in your life experiences.
Get Rid Of Limiting Beliefs
Throughout your life you have been negatively conditioned, influenced and convinced by others and yourself through repetition to believe certain things are true. These are what as known as limiting beliefs which are keeping you stuck and small, but the real truth is, you are capable of so much more.
When you try to change or you set a new goal that is outside your normal comfort zone your limiting beliefs which are not true and your negative emotions will try and do everything they can to prevent you from advancing forward by attempting to keep you small and safe in the confines of your comfort zone.
You can begin to start to question some of your old unhelpful beliefs and try and change your perceptions. Start to challenge and question some of your old beliefs, have a conversation with yourself, break up and fragment any unhelpful beliefs systems.
If any limiting beliefs crop up, you can say they that has served me well but that is out dated, unhelpful and inaccurate and then change it to a positive based beliefs. Sew some seeds of doubt to the foundations of any unproductive beliefs. When you start to make new formed beliefs look for any positive evidence of any times in the past when you were lucky, successful or confident to back up and reinforce the new ideas.
Unconscious beliefs are the driving force behind most fears, the difference between unconscious beliefs and conscious ones are, the conscious ones are active and evoking a negative feeling.
If your offering a resistance to your new beliefs then that new belief will be overpowered by the existing negative one. If your trying to tackle a limiting belief at a point when its causing a negative emotional response then all you will achieve is, you will cause more resistance to it, this will just keep the negative cycle going.
The best time to deal with limitations is when your already feeling good, then change your perceptions and attitude and don't go back to your old ways of thinking. The thing to be aware of is, you cannot make new positive changes to your life, you cannot break free of the past if your still living your life controlled by your old beliefs.
Many programs will recommend you analyse and dig into your problems and rake up up the past to try and identify those chore limiting beliefs and bring them to surface and then try and change them, but you can skip all that process and just focus on creating new positive supporting beliefs.
Because finding a core belief is not a process of digging into the problem even deeper because that just activates more negative energy and pain. It is far better to try to find out what's underneath your problem or what's keeping you stuck to see if you can uncover the root belief that is causing it and then replacing that belief with something positive and helpful.
Because in the end it doesn't matter whether your beliefs are right or wrong or true or false because it all boils down to the fact of. Are your beliefs taking you in the direction you want to go or are they moving you further away from your goals and the life you want and deserve to have. If your beliefs are not helping you to move forward then you need to replace then with beliefs that will serve you well and advance you in the right direction.
It is now time that you start to take control of everything that you feed your mind and you want to feed your mind with new positive and helpful beliefs. These new beliefs need to enter your subconscious mind without meeting any negative resistance.
What tends to happen when people try to oppose new beliefs over old limiting ones is the new belief clashes with the old belief otherwise known as a conflicting belief, so what your telling yourself causes negative energy and a contradictory response and more often than not the old beliefs win especially when your tying to change your reality but your current results are telling you a different story.
The key to change is through repetition, if your mind listens to one new bit of information it will not really sink in or change your subconscious programming, but when your mind hears or is fed the same information and words over and over again then in time the new information will sink in and be accepted by your subconscious mind and changes will begin to happen.
The Legendary And Highly Succesful Phyllis Diller on "The Magic of Believing" the book that shaped her life
The Best Self Help Program " The Magic Of Believing"
It is no secret that Rhonda Byrne wrote one of the all-time best-selling titles, the Secret, back in 2006. This film changed many people's perceptions and gave them new found optimism and hope, but although many people applied the information too their lives most did not get the results they anticipated and there is only one reason for this.
What many people do not know, and they still do not know even today, is the real secret behind the secret and also behind just about everything else in life and the essence of what lies beneath the secret is the law-of-attraction. Most people know that. Unfortunately, the thing most people do not truly understand is the truth behind the power of believing.
There are so many people jumping on the bandwagon that the law of attraction and manifesting has been over complicated. Leading self help guru Bradley Thompson has been saying this for a long time, the secret fuel for powering attraction, manifesting, cosmic-ordering and all modern day miracles is belief.
The Belief Secret from self help street is much more than a book you read once like a novel and then put away in 'the back room' where we store all our used items. You do not do that with this book.
This is a guide not a book. This is a guide to read, mark, follow, highlight and use on a day-to-day basis, because without belief change and success are unlikely to ever happen, but once you learn how to change your beliefs then anything becomes possible.
