You really can have anything you want. You have the potential to create whatever you want in your life. BUT, if you have the least bit of doubt that you can do it, that you can have it, that you deserve it or that it’s possible, it won’t happen. You MUST HAVE BELIEF to accomplish your goals and desires.
You must believe you can do it, even if you don’t know how. You must believe that you can have it. You must believe that you deserve it. You must believe that it is possible for YOU! It’s not necessary to have it figured out, to know how, when or where the resources are coming from. You just have to believe. Then start taking action to move toward your goal and the rest will show up when you need it, as long as you believe, focus and take action.
Beliefs are thoughts that you keep thinking over and over until it is ingrained into your mind. We can use affirmations to change beliefs. Create a positive statement, in the present tense, of what you want to have or create. Repeat it over and over. Post it where you can see it many times throughout the day. You are reprogramming your mind to believe this new truth about you. You are creating a new belief.
William James is quoted, “Belief creates the actual fact.”
Affirmations work for anything, creating wealth, health, fitness, relationships, travel, or anything else you want to manifest in your life or habits you want to form. For example, you want to release weight and drop two sizes, you could say, “I am so comfortable in my body and I feel so good wearing a size 10. I love how my clothes fit me.” Always keep it positive, never use any negative words like lost weight, or not, don’t, un___, or other negative words in general.
Most beliefs are based on past experiences. Many we gained as children. Our parents taught us their beliefs. Examine your beliefs and where they came from. Are they empowering, positive, happy? Or are they limiting, negative and fearful or self-deprecating? A belief is not necessarily a truth. As we gain knowledge, as we learn and understand on a deeper level, our beliefs can change.
Creating an awareness of what your beliefs really are and where they come from can help you to decide if it’s true or not, and if you really want to keep that belief or let it go. Many beliefs we need to let go of if we really want to live the life we want and find greater freedom. Limiting beliefs stop us from moving forward, they keep us stuck where we are. If you feel stuck, look at your beliefs. Is that what’s keeping you where you are? Probably.
Our beliefs form our perceptions. This can be quite a subtle way of limiting your life. The way you see something, comes from what you believe about it. But this too may not be the real truth. Everything just is…until we put our own spin on it and make it either good or bad. How many times have you observed a person seeing something as good, and someone else will see the exact same thing and think it’s bad? It happens a lot. It’s based on perception and belief.
To achieve more in life and to live a better life, limiting beliefs must be replaced with empowering beliefs. You must create a new mental story to replay in your thinking. Stop the broken record of “I’m not good enough, I’ll could never do that”, etc. Consistent, positive, empowering affirmations will rewire your mind to take you where you want to go. Choose thoughts like, “I am good enough, I am deserving of every good in life. I am making a difference. I am manifesting my desires.” Stick with it. Be aware of your thoughts and beliefs. Correct any negative ones right away. Don’t let them in. Guard your thought.
Napoleon Hill says, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” You absolutely have unlimited potential and can achieve anything you want, as long as you believe you can! I believe in you. Now you believe in yourself and go achieve your dreams!
