Do You Really Believe In You?

Our beliefs are so powerful and yet so elusive. We succeed or fail based on our beliefs. Most people live their life waiting to be shown something is possible while others forge ahead creating their life believing they can do it, without any concrete proof, just a deep knowing that it’s possible.

In the last while I’ve had an opportunity to explore the structure of our beliefs more fully. In particular, how our beliefs impact our business success and our leadership abilities. The subject has fascinated me for a very long time. I’ve watched how beliefs can make or break a person. I’ve watched people who from my perspective are amazing and accomplished and yet they believe the exact opposite of themselves. And it’s not what I believe that counts, it’s what they believe. I’ve seen how this limits them in their life. Not necessarily with what they accomplish, but in how they feel about what they’ve accomplished.

Often the people who have achieved the most feel they’ve achieved the least.

Self-worth and self-esteem are also tied to our beliefs about ourselves. Your self esteem is based on how you think and feel about yourself based on our self concept. Your self-worth is based on your evaluation of your self-concept. And your self concept is what you believe about yourself . This is very powerful since your beliefs shape your destiny and guide your behaviour.

I met an amazing young woman in Hawaii a number of years ago. She was 29 at the time. She was an artist. I met her at the Kona Art Center in Holualoa. She was very successful with her paintings. Her originals were so much in demand that they limited the sale of them to only once a year.

She was very excited about her art and very goal oriented. She was always striving to learn more and achieve more. Beyond her art, she won 23 medals swimming, performed in the local theatre and had a desire to go to college and become a playwright.

What makes her even more amazing is that she was born with what is commonly known as Downs Syndrome. She believed that she could overcome this and didn’t want to use it as a crutch in her life.

Are you using any crutches in your life that are stopping you from living life to the fullest? Do you have beliefs that are sabotaging your success? Do you want to want to break free from the beliefs that are holding you back?

Imagine what your life could be like if you did.
