“Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create meaning that empowers them or one that can literally save their lives” – Tony Robbins

Food For Thought: Beliefs have the power to create OR destroy…. 

💡 Beliefs are an essential part of who we are, and what we think we are to the world out there. Sometimes our beliefs may be based on faith, but most often, in my experience, beliefs stem from our actual experiences.

For the longest time, I thought I was a failure (having failed to launch a few startups in the early stages of my career). Once I started believing that I was a failure who couldn’t complete something, my ability to complete anything dropped to just about zero. 

WHY… ❓ 

✅ Cause I had a built in excuse from past experiences.

✅ But, after introspection and investing in my own personal development, I realised, this is not how the people I admire in life talk and do things, let alone they themselves had multiple failures along the way…

The solution… ❓ 

✅ The next time we may have a self-limiting belief, ask, is this empowering me to grow and reach my ultimate goal, or is it disempowering me by creating a self-inflicted obstacle❓

💎 If we argue over our faults and problems, who will argue for our goals and successes❓ Embrace the past as an opportunity to learn from, and not to hold onto 💎
