Our thoughts and behavior reinforce the beliefs we hold. This includes the ones we inherit from previous generations as well as the ones we develop from all of the situations in our lives. Our primitive brains want to be right regardless of whether that belief is really beneficial or not. If we believe that money makes people evil, we will operate as if that is true and reject money because we don’t want to be evil. I heard there’s something like 500,000 such beliefs in our brains that dictate how we go about our lives – some in beneficial way and some limiting way.
Being someone who disrupts those limiting beliefs is a brave thing. It is not easy to swim against the current, to recognize those thoughts and to dismantle them, but know that it is possible.
