Do Your Beliefs Shape Your Life? You Better Choose Them Well!
A lot of people think that their beliefs are like their families. We really don’t have much choice in the matter of family. They’re born into it, attend the events, love the people without intention and are cemented to them for life.
Suppose that’s your attitude, regarding your beliefs. In that case, it’s no surprise to me that you are possibly not living your life to your fullest potential. Whether this means enjoying your job, making the most money in your field, enjoying your relationships, or looking fit. Your beliefs play a significant role in life. No matter how much you know about its function, your belief system will continue to remain significant in your life.
Where Do Beliefs Draw Their Power?
Beliefs are like your glasses.
Depending on the grade of your lenses, the world may look crystal clear, or it may look very fuzzy. I know when my lenses are wrong, I will get a nasty headache.
Beliefs work the same way. When you perceive your reality, and I’m talking about the physical things that you can see, hear, touch, taste, and smell. These things have to be filtered by something in your head. This, my friend, is called your belief system.
When you filter this information in your mind, you give it meaning. You provide it with colour. You give it a particular slant or angle. So what do you think will happen next?
Your analysis of external things that you choose to believe impacts what you say, what you do, and what you feel about yourself and the rest of the world! Your beliefs dictate your life experience.
Think about that for a second. Is this resonating with you?
In other words, this is essential stuff. Still, the problem is a lot of people think that since they believe a particular idea that this is their reality forever. They confuse their objective reality, which everyone could agree with, with their own subjective take on the things that they believe.
Also, other people excuse their own possibly warped way of seeing reality by suggesting that that’s who they are or it’s their nature. How dare people question them!
Beliefs are chosen.
For some, this might be a hard pill to swallow. Just as you can select your shoes, you can decide how you perceive life. Now, I’m not saying that it’s super easy. After all, beliefs do become a force of habit after a while.
People don’t usually hang onto a view because they believe it is just flat-out wrong and harms them. There’s obviously something about what they think that gives them enough benefit for it to be worth hanging onto.
It’s like wearing an old comfy t-shirt.
You probably have an old t-shirt in your closet. It doesn’t look that crash hot anymore, it has a couple of holes, the cotton is tired, and it may have a stain or two. But, for whatever reason, you like wearing it, because it’s incredibly comfortable. You know that it doesn’t look the best; you couldn’t wear it out to the shops, but you prefer it’s comfort. Your go-to T does well enough and serves you well enough, so you keep it around, and you use it whenever you can.
The same applies to your beliefs. Many belief systems have outlived their purpose or usefulness in your life. As we live in these uncertain times there’s never been a better time to take a good look at the perceptions we live by and ask ourselves, “Does this belief I live by still serve me in life?”
Otherwise, we will be living far below our potential. We would continue to look at reality with the tools that really don’t serve us. And that’s a real tragedy.
Don’t let that be you! Reassessing my life’s values and beliefs is something I do at least once a year, look out for my next article as we dive deeper into belief systems and how changing things up can change your life, within hours!!!
