Learn to Believe

What did you learn to believe?

What we think on a daily basis basically comes from everything in our life that we have learned to believe. Of course some of that belief system is based on how much we have accepted to believe, how much we have resisted to believe, and how we reinforce our belief system; by exercising all those beliefs in our daily mental and physical habits.

Working Assumptions and Expectations

Our own (and I also mean owning our assumptions... because at the end of the day they really are our own assumptions) working assumptions create a stage for our potential realities, how we react and respond, and what we think happens to us on a daily basis. Our working assumptions form our expectations of what we may or may not consider as truth in our moment to moment interactions with people and our environment.

Consider Where You are in Your Life

That was a mouthful. However, divisively true. So with that said, consider where you are in your life right now and if it’s exactly where you would like to be? If it’s where you would like to be, great! However if where you are is because of what you were taught to believe, but are not necessarily happy with, maybe question how much more you could believe and where that might take you.


What are some options that you could consider in moving you forward with the potential of feeding your sense of creative adventure? What can you teach yourself? Because if there’s anything about life that’s true, it’s impossible to learn less.

Changing Assumptions

If you were to change your assumptions about life, about your personal situation, belief-system, and expectations, how could you personally be better than you are in this moment? If you wanted to, how could you personally move forward?

Trust Your Intuition

Our intuition is an accumulation of our experiences and what we have learned throughout our entire life, or as one writer puts it, “Intuition is truth on a silver platter.“ What’s your truth? Where do you want to be, or maybe more importantly, where do you need to be in your life right now?

Try this...

Here’s a simple exercise I do with my clients that you can do right now if you like:

1. Make a list of your assumptions.

2. Consider changing some of your assumptions and see what happens. Just experiment for one day.

3. See if there are any changes in your expectations:

  • With yourself

  • Your relationships

  • The environment that you’re in moment to moment

Personal change can fulfill a natural need for creative growth and be one of life‘s greatest adventures.
