If you’re reading this, you’re looking for a way out of the mediocrity or a flat-out failure you are experiencing in your life.
It’s okay to admit it. There’s no shame in trying to find a solution. I was once in your position, so I totally get it. The shameful thing to do is to pretend the problem doesn’t exist and that everything is okay.
Are you with me now? I decided that it is time to take things to a whole new level in my communication so that I can get you to pay attention. Do me a favor, take a moment to pay attention to the chair you are sitting on as you read this article. It feels sturdy and able to hold your weight and if you take the thought one step further, the chair is doing a fine job in supporting you, but you knew it would before you sat down to read this article. You made a snap decision to sit in the chair and almost without thought, you sat down.
In fact, the decision was made so quickly that you probably were not even aware of it.
Still, you made the decision. What am I talking about? I’m talking about your assessment of the strength of the chair. That’s a big deal because you sat on the chair without thinking and without even considering whether it’s sturdy enough to hold your weight or whether it’s positioned right.
Belief is the reason you quickly went through the motion of sitting before reading this article. You believed the chair would hold your weight. You believed it’s in good enough shape to take care of you and prevent harm from happening to you
I walk you through this exercise to bring home the point that belief is crucial to your daily existence. You do it all the time. You operate out of belief. You live in belief. Belief is the glue that ties your life together. It influences your decisions that make your life possible.
If you can believe this chair can hold you up, why do you continue to believe in things that hold you down?
If you’re struggling in any shape or form, it’s because you believed in the wrong things. I know it hurts; I know it stinks. Stay with me.
Nobody wants to hear this because it leads to the ultimate conclusion that we all need to wake up. We are the creators of our lives. We make that call. We make that decision, and nothing stings more than coming face to face with the reality that you made bad choices.
If you’re struggling in your relationships, at your job, managing your money, with your health, how much you weigh, and what you look like, it’s because you made the wrong call. Nobody likes to be wrong. But the good news is that you don’t have to rely on your feelings.
“Get your belief house in order and you will make better decisions.”
You don’t have to remain trapped or feel trapped. Instead, you can tap into the power of belief so you can make better decisions. You understand that the world doesn’t care about your feelings. It really doesn’t give a hoot what your emotional state is. Just keeping it real with you.
Do you know what it pays attention to? Your actions. Get your belief house in order and you will make better decisions. This means taking better action which puts your life in a better position.
Belief impacts your expectations and assumptions.
Start there. What do you assume to be true about you? It is your life, your place in the world, and your abilities. What do you expect out of life? This is a belief too.
The good news is that you have the choice to accept a belief or not. Those that resonate with you and allow you to make better choices you can keep and the beliefs that no longer resonate with you, well, you can drop them like a hot potato.
Remember, beliefs affect your coping mechanisms and how you deal, or not, with the challenges that life may throw your way. When you understand how beliefs work and understand that a belief is a choice that you have the power to accept, then you open up the door to success.
Choose better beliefs and you get better results. It’s that simple.
Wishing you peace to your mind.
