In recent months, I was in a tremendous slump. I felt disconnected from my God, from life, from others. I became so angry that I began yelling at everyone in my house, including my children. My home became increasingly messy because I didn’t have the energy to clean up regularly. My grades took a nose dive and I barely passed my classes. My husband and I were in a constant state of disagreement, that I was contemplating divorce. I had lost control and I felt completely defeated. One day in bed, I was watching videos on YouTube and came across a series of videos that truly helped me. While watching these videos I realized I could change my situation if I re-framed what I believed.
When I began to examine my beliefs, I realized I had some very self-defeating thoughts that lead to self-defeating behaviors. I learned that many of my negative beliefs stemmed from my childhood, and those feelings that I felt had to be recognized and dealt with in order for me to begin healing. Once I realized my past, and took responsibility for the role I played in continuing the cycle, I then had to recreate my beliefs to reflect what I want to manifest in my life.
If your life isn’t what you’d like it to be, then you should examine your belief system. I guarantee that is the source of your dismay. Your thoughts are based on a underlying belief system that ultimately drives your behavior. For example, If you’re dating or married to someone that mistreats you, then you probably believe you’re not worthy of love and respect. This belief probably stems from your childhood, and was made manifest in your adult life. Here’s the kicker. Your thoughts will support your beliefs. You attract what you believe. Whatever you’re struggling with in your life, you should reflect on what you believe about yourself.
If your life sucks then your beliefs do too. If you positively change your thoughts your life will change positively.
