10 Empowering Beliefs That Can Transform Your Life

Before we get into the 10 empowering beliefs that can transform your life, let´s begin with the first question that generally comes to mind…

What exactly is a belief?

Well, it’s a feeling of certainty about what something means.

The challenge is that most of our beliefs are generalized ideas about our past and based on our own interpretation of what causes pain or pleasure.

How Ideas Turn Into Beliefs

To believe something, you have references to support the idea—specific experiences that back up the belief.  

Imagine a tabletop, for instance.

Without legs, it could never stand by itself. 

Yet – with strong, sturdy legs – it can.

Belief is like that tabletop and your thoughts and experiences, the legs. Your thoughts and experiences are what make you certain that your beliefs are true.

Let´s say you believe you are extremely ambitious.  If that´s the case, chances are you have plenty of references to support that idea. Perhaps you are good at pursuing your goals, you don´t let anything hold you back and people always tell you how much they admire your focus and motivation.

I´m sure, if you stop to think about it, you can find all kinds of experiences in your past to back up that belief.

The key is to be consciously aware of the beliefs you are creating.

And if they don´t empower you, take steps to change them.

True Transformation Begins With A Change in Beliefs

Are you ready to open the door to replacing those old, limiting beliefs with new, empowering ones geared to getting you where you want to go?

Then start honestly questioning those beliefs and the experiences you see as supporting them. Each time you do, you shave a little more off the legs of your belief table and, as you do, that feeling of certainty you had will begin to waver

…until the whole table topples!

Now, work on developing the positive, empowering beliefs that can give you the power to accomplish just about anything – even those things others believe just can´t be done!
