You get what you believe.
This past month, in preparation for the next round of Money Mind Academy classes, I’ve been doing a ton of reading on belief systems, self-esteem, and self-image.
The bottom line is that we seldom if ever achieve more than we believe ourselves to be capable of; more than what we believe we are worthy and deserving of; more than our belief in our ability to cope with life’s challenges.
There’s this thing called belief-dependent realism. Our beliefs shape our reality. Once we form our beliefs, our brains search for and find evidence to confirm them.
We make ourselves right. Which is why we often say that change “doesn’t feel right.” When reality pushes beyond the boundaries of our belief systems, we have a way of pulling it back in.
When we believe in scarcity, we unconsciously reject abundance. When we believe in our unworthiness, life ponies up our precise valuations. When we don’t believe we can handle life’s challenges, we give up at the first obstacle.
Limiting beliefs fabricate the fictions we routinely mistake for facts.
They control the way we think, the way we talk to ourselves, what we believe is possible.
How do we change our beliefs?
Well, I teach an entire course on that. But one of the most crucial elements is the persistent practice of thinking from the end.
Today on The Quote of The Day Show, Dr. Wayne Dyer expands on this topic, revealing why we get exactly what we believe and why thinking from the end is the key to creating a new reality.
