A belief according to google is:
“An acceptance that something is true, especially one without proof.”
I tend to define it as simply:
“A feeling of certainty.”
A belief is state, an internal representation that drives your behaviour.
There are many examples of how strongly your beliefs impact you.
One example is of a woman with split personalities, normally her blood sugar levels were fine but when she believed she was diabetic her whole physiology changed to that of a diabetic.
Another, which there are many studies of, is when a person is in a hypnotic state a touched with a piece of ice that they are told is hot mental the skin blisters
Essentially your mind and body will react to what it believes.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the placebo effect with drugs when people are told it’s a drug but it’s actually just sugar. I’m sure many of us of someone that got told they are terminally ill and then weeks later they are gone.
Drugs aren’t always necessary but belief in recovery is.
In short, there are two types of belief, and empowering belief and disempowering belief
An empowering belief is a belief in possibility, a belief that we will succeed in something it achieve something else
A disempowering belief is a belief that we can’t succeed, a belief that we are limited, that it can’t change and can be overwhelming.
Many people have been quoted to say this so I won’t assign it to any one person but…
“If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right”
What beliefs do you have empowering or disempowering?
Both kinds of belief have a huge power and impact on your life, the beauty is you can create empowering beliefs that enable you to succeed (define success how you wish) in these 5 ways
1. From your environment
2. From events that have happened
3. From knowledge
4. From your own past results
5. From experiencing results in advance
