Our own personal beliefs can either elevate or destroy us. It only serve us well if it leads to our personal growth and expansion. A strong belief can shape the way you think and see yourself in different situations. If you believe that there is a higher power than you, then you will most likely act accordingly. You might want to hold back on doing something that might displease that higher authority. Likewise, if you believe that you are in-charge, then you will more likely to do as you please.
Beliefs that have been put upon when you’re young is very powerful. If you have been inculcated with the belief that you are bad with numbers, that will have an effect of how you perceive the subject when you grow up. And boy, that will be quite hard for you to handle in this current context.
So, be conscious of your own beliefs. Practise eliminating negative beliefs. Only empower good positive ones. They have a large affect on your future.
I admire those that live with no regrets. Proudly marching forward and not looking back. There might be times when you have things that you thought you should not have done and you dwell upon it for a long time but in the end, there is nothing you can do to change what has already been done.
I have learned that the one of the best thing we can do in the face of such situations or any experiences from our past is to learn. Learn from our past. And grow from it. As cliché as it sounds, things do happen for a reason. You just need to figure what it is. Here’s another thing though. What you seek, you’ll find. Therefore always be in the lookout for positive connections. Nothing else. Rest assured, if you look for negative ones, you’ll get them. And that won’t do you any good, especially if you are looking for growth. As tempting as the negative connections might seem on surface, do not fall prey to them. You are better than that. Stop looking back. It’s not worth your time.
We as humans will always have the need to grow. Even if we do not verbalise it, it is an innate need that is in each of us. Not having it, is simply not really living. However when we let ego into our lives, it prevents our growth, our learning and ultimately our success.
The need to be better than someone else is indeed an illusion of life. The truly successful have realised that it is they themselves who they should be concern about. Therefore, be humble when you are rising up. And stay humble when you’re at the top. Our state of life is full of uncertainty so let’s always do our best and may we remember to continuously keep our feet on the ground.
