Do you really need
to believe
what you believe?
Really?


This is a call to examine your beliefs. It's always a good time to take a look at what motivates you, what holds you back and at what causes you stress. Our beliefs can lead us in many directions and not always for our good.

It is said: 'stand up for what you believe in', but before you stand up, make sure it isn't some misbegotten theory that you have taken for truth. You may have many unquestioned core beliefs, carried since childhood that beg reconsideration. Take a good hard look at what you are fighting for.

Once you have examined your beliefs, you can decide what is valid for you today and what is just something you absorbed through living your life. Once examined, if you determine that the remaining beliefs absolutely define you, then by all means, stand up for what you believe in and delete the rest. 

But remember, "You are what you believe yourself to be" Paulo Coelho
Your belief system pertains to you and how you feel about yourself. If you feel that you can never have anything you want, you won't. If you believe you are not good enough, you won't be good enough. Trust and self-love are what is required. You have to be the leading lady in your own life and all it takes is believing in yourself.

"You do not become what you want, you become what you believe." Oprah  Winfrey
