Identify Your Beliefs

I know you’re struggling. If you’re reading this, you probably feel that you are just plodding through your life. You might even think that one day is as meaningless and as insignificant as the day that preceded it. Believe me, we’ve all been through what you’re going through. In fact, you are not alone in your current situation because there are millions upon millions of people who are in the same situation as you. They feel stuck. They feel that the best things in life have slipped through their fingers and they are struggling with whatever is left. They have all sorts of self-defeating beliefs as to why they cannot achieve great things in life. They feel they’re too poor, they don’t have enough money, or they don’t have connections. In other words, they give themselves an excuse after excuse as to why they remain frustrated.

What if I told you that these are all illusions? What if I told you that they emanate from the things you choose to believe about yourself?
You have to understand that there are people who have less money than you or who have severe physical disabilities who are able to do amazing things with their life. On the surface, these people have so little to work with, but they are able to rise above. Life may have given them lemons, but they sure know how to make a great pitcher of lemonade. Now, here comes the painful question, why can’t you do what they do? It all boils down to beliefs. We all have beliefs. You may be thinking to yourself that there’s really no overriding belief governing your life. You might want to think about that for a second. You might want to take a closer look. You see, we all have beliefs. We just might not be conscious of them. They might not be top of mind. Accordingly, we just might

not be aware of their impact on our lives. But just because we’re not aware, it doesn’t mean they don’t exist nor have an impact.
Let me cut straight to the chase. Your life is the product of your beliefs. If you want to change your life, if you want to be a winner instead of a loser, if you want to be a victor instead of a victim, change your beliefs. It doesn’t get any simpler than this, but it also is very difficult because we are creatures of habit. It’s easier to stick with the devil you know than to take a leap of faith into the great unknown. But the bottom line will not go away: if you are frustrated in any aspect of your life, they are linked to your beliefs. This is a straight link. This is a direct cause and effect relationship.
