The most powerful belief system you have is believing in yourself. Period. Whether you believe in a higher power or not, it still comes down to how you feel about yourself that makes the difference in how your life turns out.
As human beings, we have the ability to “choose”. The act of making a choice is what sets us apart from every other living thing. Having said that, we choose to believe in God, the Buddha, Mohammed, etc. or nothing at all. Beliefs are passed on through generations, taught in schools, our friends, family or learned through life. However, they are not “forced” on us. Every person chooses to accept what religion, spirituality, different realms of the universe or realities they put their faith in. Anyone who says otherwise, is lacking a belief in themselves. Anything or anyone outside of believing in yourself, consider as a topping on a cake and you are the cake. If there is no cake, there is no topping. You must put yourself first otherwise you risk the chance of blaming someone or something else for your life’s circumstances.
Without a solid understanding of what you personally believe about yourself, you tend to allow others to influence your opinions and self-belief systems. Why? Because you don’t trust yourself enough to know that you can make that choice all by yourself. Your self-esteem and confidence are wavering for some reason so you may believe that others know you better than you know yourself. Which of course, is never true. They are not you. If you truly listen to your intuition and the voice inside yourself, you’ll be amazed at the beauty, love and intelligence that resides in YOU. Why not give it a chance to shine? Show the world who you really are. I know I’d love to see it.
This is what it comes down to. If you want to be happier, healthier, smarter or want true love, great friendships or to just open your own business, whatever it is, you MUST believe in YOURSELF.
Believe in your ability to take an action that moves you forward.
Believe in your tenacity and perserverance to hold your ground and complete that task in front of you because it’s important.
Believe in your ability to make the choice that is appropriate in that moment. Remember, there are no wrong decisions, just choices made in a single moment of time.
Believe in the love in your heart and that you will find someone who is looking for someone just like you.
Believe in the caring and giving in your soul that cries out to make a difference in the world and find a way to volunteer your time.
And most of all, Believe in the goodness of who you are. We were all born the same, with a smile on our faces and the purity in our hearts. Don’t let your childhood and life experiences change you. Be the best person you can be and life will unfold just as it should.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Remember, Be good to yourself and to each other!
Love and Blessings,
