There is an element that’s inherently powerful within every individual walking this planet; Belief. It’s an invisible and invincible force that we all carry that has a very beautiful way of shaping us, not in physical form but can be equally as important as the very heartbeat that keeps us alive.
Belief can be used for both wrong and good. This means your actions and the way you govern your attitude is based on this one thing. In other words, we could call belief our very foundation. You simply won’t do something if you don’t believe in it.
It also gives us as people perseverance. When something negative arises out of the blue, we use belief to get through it. We believe that we can overcome it. We also believe that we already faced larger issues in the past and we can definitely deal with the present ones, as well. There is absolutely no evidence in those words because they are placed in the past and the future however we get a real genuine feeling that it is so. Most of the time it proves us right and that is its incredible power.
We could also say that belief is one of the very few things that are real yet require absolutely no evidence for it to exist, just as much as a pen before you. It can also resolve a big question we all have. “Who am I?”
If you want to get to know yourself better, just take a brief look at the things you believe in. What do you believe about education? About your parents or loved ones? Your friends? Yourself?
Like everything, this element also has a yin to its yang. There is no balance without it, after all! If we take a look at the dark side of belief, it can also keep us in the past. Many fears and anxieties arise from us having out-dated beliefs. You might have failed ten years ago at keeping your work for more than a couple of months and got fired. Since that event, you never dared finding more work because of that incident. Your fear is very real; however your belief is an old illusion. You have definitely changed within ten years, but maybe you didn’t in your belief. A lot of individuals today deal with this issue. What do we do after this realization?
To change a belief, you must grow expectant of the new result. What this means is, even though illogical, you must convince yourself first that the new belief has ALREADY BECOME reality. They say repetition is the mother of all learning. You must constantly expose yourself to the new belief by reading books related to it, watching movies relatable to it, writing paper notes about you experiencing the new one already and you must absolutely believe it will change.
Have faith that it definitely will change. Eventually, you will enjoy your new reality and you won’t be confined by your out-dated thoughts. You owe this to yourself so get to asking the right questions and change them one by one. Do this an hour every day. Spend that time with yourself.
