what is a belief system?
A belief system is what is in control of the words and thoughts which are in our heads. You know that voice that tells you that “You are not good enough”.“The pain is to strong to overcome”. “You are not important”. These words and thoughts are controlled by the things that we have accepted as truth. However, they are not truth and only have any significance because we allow them validation. They are a part of our current belief system.
how do I overcome my mind and take control of my thoughts?
Firstly, I need you to understand that your mind is a tool. You are not your mind and it should only be used when you need it. Think of your mind as a car. You use it to get you from point A to point B. High performers use their minds as a tool to achieve their goals. We understand that we need to fill our minds with the right thoughts and knowledge sufficient to fulfill our goal. We train our minds everyday. Filling it with positive affirmations and listening to motivational programs like the one above. We read books about subjects we are passionate about to stay fulfilled. We go to the gym and train our bodies to grow and remove the fear of failure from our minds. We install a positive belief system in our minds everyday because we live in a negative world. If we don’t do this everyday our mind gets set to the default belief system the world has set for us. All of my life I’ve been told I wasn’t enough and it wasn’t until I believed that I was that my life truly changed.
the big misunderstanding.
People have misunderstood this concept for years. I do not blame the people but I cringe when I hear someone say “Oh just think positive thoughts”. How am I supposed to just think positive thoughts when my heart and soul feels shattered? Listen, I know its not easy and I would never give someone such vague advice. I also know that when I was depressed the only thing that helped me come out of it was believing that I truly could. I believed that I deserved more and you do to! Think about it. You are a human being just like the rest of us. You are capable of learning. You are capable of exercising. You are capable of so much more than what you give yourself credit for. Unleash your potential by installing the right belief system in your mind. Use it like a vehicle to get you from where you are now to where you want to be. Grow yourself physically and mentally. You will find that the beauty is not in the final result. The beauty is in the process of becoming who you had to become to get there.
