“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”
- Teddy Roosevelt, 26th US President
I love this little quote from Teddy Roosevelt. And as we start 2021 with intentions and goals ready, now’s a great time to examine our positive and empowering beliefs, as well as our limiting beliefs. Our beliefs will provide the fuel to achieving our goals or put on the brakes to our hopes and dreams.
How did our belief system evolve? Where did our beliefs come from? Almost all our beliefs come from the results from our past, significant events in our life, the environment we grew up in and are in at the moment, the knowledge we acquire over time, and our vision of the future. And of course, many of our beliefs come from our parents, caretakers, siblings, teachers, and authority figures.
I’m sure you realise that these beliefs could be 100% true, or 100% false!! All that matters is that it’s true for you and nothing anyone says can change your belief, even in the face of completely foolproof evidence.
Will beliefs affect my 2021 intentions and goals?
