“You can change your beliefs so they empower your dreams and desires. Create a strong belief in yourself and what you want.” ~ Marcia Wieder …
Gardens should be nourishing to the seeds that are planted within them; those seeds need lots of healthy nutrients, sunlight, and water to germinate, grow, and flower or produce a beneficial harvest. They also require tending to and care, such as fertilizers, pesticide, and continual weeding and trimming. Our dreams and desires are much like the season’s harvest of a garden–they are dependent upon how well we nourish and empower them with strong, healthy beliefs. And the beauty of this realization is that we can determine how successful we are at reaching our dreams and desires simply by believing in ourselves and embracing positive attitudes, and no one can take this away from us unless we allow them to do so.
And even if our attitudes are negative, or wishy-washy and on the fence, all it takes is a simple shift in perspectives to make a world of difference. Everything picks up when we begin to believe in our self: self-image and self-confidence, feelings of happiness and contentment, work performance and productivity, even relationships–for it is easier to be with someone who believes in himself or herself than it is to be with someone who does not.
Do your beliefs empower your dreams and desires? If the answer is “yes,” then you are on track to reaching them; but if it is “no,” then now is the time to start creating, developing, and building up healthy beliefs that align with those dreams and desires. There is an amazing world of limitless potential and countless untapped abilities that lie untapped within you. And just as we would not go outside wearing only shorts in the winter, or dressed in something we dislike or feel does not define us, we should not go through life allowing beliefs that do not nourish us or support us to define who we are.
Remove any beliefs you hold that do not support or align with your current dreams and desires.
Questions to consider:
Where do your beliefs come from? How did you get them?
How might you go about creating your own beliefs about your own life and the ways that you live it?
Why is it important to adopt and maintain beliefs that support your dreams and desires?
For further thought:
“Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs. Just as quickly as you can dehypnotize yourself from the ideas of “I can’t,” “I’m not worthy,” ” I don’t deserve it,” and other self-limiting ideas.” ~ Maxwell Maltz, PsychoCybernetics
