Your beliefs drive your behaviours. And your behaviours determine the outcome you achieve.
Stronger beliefs make you act smarter, better, and with greater resilience and determination.
Beliefs are so powerful that they shape your identity and life.
When you believe in something, you just filter reality accordingly. I would say that you model your reality around your beliefs. That’s how powerful beliefs are.
When you truly believe in something or someone you overcome fear, doubts and anything that stands in the way of your action.
Yet, you should never forget that your beliefs are not the truth.
“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” — Marcus Aurelius
You create your beliefs over the years, mostly unconsciously. They can make you incredibly powerful and effective, they can help you focus. But they can also limit you, making you blind to the infinite possibilities of the world.
I’m not sure about what I wanted to share this morning. Beliefs are a vast topic.
My reflections have been kindled by some conversations but mostly by witnessing the power of believing in something greater. And I’m wondering. Does that power come from the object of that belief or from the act of believing itself, from within?
