We Are What We Believe

We are what we believe.

Our belief system is formed by the repetition of an idea (a positive or negative idea) from someone we trust.

For example, if someone you trusted repeatedly told you how wonderful you are, you may feel confident in your wonderfulness

If on the other hand, you were told repeatedly how incapable or inept you were, unfortunately you may have grown to believe this too, and over time it may have become your belief as well. Are you surprised then when you go into your adult life, carrying this belief system and living within these limits?

So what do you do now?

Reevaluate these old ideas, discarding the ones that keep you safe, stuck and small while forming a new belief system that serves and supports you!

As you slowly exchange the limiting beliefs that keep you back for a belief system that propels you forward, you’ll soon see the greatness that others see in you.

Enjoy your day!
