“Life is a series of collisions with the future. It is not the sum of what we have, but what we yearn to be” says Jose Ortega. What is your belief about yourself and the world? Is your belief positive or negative and what impact does it has on you? Richard Carswell states in his book ‘From Success To Significance’ that, “the Law of Belief states that whatever you believe with emotion and conviction becomes your reality.”
Our beliefs play a vital role in the way we think and behave. The way we see the world is also affected by our belief system. Great achievers who have chalked success in history and life were people who believed strongly in their dreams. They believed they were destined to succeed and to accomplish great things. If you belief and behave accordingly and you work towards it then, your belief will come true.
Deepak Chopra once said, “Nothing holds more power over the body, than belief.” William James also said, “Our belief at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the one thing that ensures the successful outcome of our venture. Belief creates the actual fact.” It is said that the key to unlock the doors of every opportunity lies in a positive belief. Likewise, one can be imprisoned and every door of opportunity kept locked by a simple negative belief.
Your belief system greatly determines what you eventually achieve in life. These beliefs affect how you treat others, your actions, behaviors, habits, as well as everything you do in life. Your beliefs and philosophy about life is the foundation of who you are. Have you ever taken some time to examine your belief system and how it affects your life?
Are you living in your own world created by what you believed in or you are living in the world of others belief? You can only take charge of your life to the fullest when you take complete charge of your belief system. This is by believing in the realization and beauty of your dreams which comes from your belief. Frank Lloyd Wright, the Great American Architect said “The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in the thing makes it happen.”
We often hear how our thoughts shape our lives. But little do we consider the concept that “Your beliefs create your reality,” let alone to think of what our core beliefs are. Richard Carswell in his inspirational book ‘From Success To Significance” again said that, the greatest world lie is to believe in certain point of life that, our lives are been controlled by fate. He said, this shows the inability of our belief to choose our own destiny.
Do you believe “your belief can create your world?” If so, what are your core beliefs and how are you going to achieve your goals in life through shaping your belief system?
