Beliefs are a part of our life experience and they determine so much about our lives. Did you know that within you is the power to do the things you never thought possible? This power becomes available to you just as soon as you are able to change your beliefs.
Self image is a collection of beliefs. It is made up of ideas that were placed in our minds by other people before we had the ability to think for ourselves. Therefore, these ideas that run our lives today were most likely placed there by other people.
As adults, we have the ability to choose who we take advice from and although we may not always get the best advice, at least we have a choice. But when we were young, we didn’t have that choice.
If success is enjoyed by 4-5% of the population, what are the odds that our minds were programmed with ideas by people who knew how things really worked? Keep in mind that our parents and guardians gave their best but they couldn’t give us what they didn’t have to give – they were the product of environmental conditioning just as we were.
If you want what information you have programmed in, all you need to do is look at your results. Your results don’t lie – your results are a reflection of your self-image. If you want to change your results, then you need to start with your self-image.
If we are not prepared to change that internal image and we do not want to go through the process of change, then we don’t deserve the change in our results. Everyone wants the change but many are not prepared to make the change. We have to take responsibility for changing the image. We may not have been responsible for creating it but we are responsible for changing it.
