Then, of course, we get additional information from all kind of sources and in most cases we believe most of it is true. We get trapped in a vicious cycle, because our beliefs create our experiences and our experiences validate our beliefs so, of course, we keep believing the same things. This is fine, if your beliefs are creating the life you want for yourself.
However, if that is not the case, it is time to stop and awaken to the realization that “Beliefs are just information that we have accepted as true”. And they are true in our experiences because we create them as a result of our beliefs. But we can change them. We do not have to stay stuck in this same vicious cycle. We can chose to first pay attention to bring some of these beliefs to our conscious awareness. This is the only place where we can change them.
You can look at the things you want to achieve, but haven’t been able to do, and know that you have some belief that is blocking your ability to be successful in that area. Pay attention to what you think and say. These beliefs will come up for you to see, if you are observant. When you become conscious of the belief that is blocking your progress, you can question it. Is it true? How do you know it is true? Remembering that an experience was created by the belief. Where did the belief come from?
