In me is the power to change
I know the impact my beliefs have on not only how I feel, but also how I behave. I recognize that believing something about a situation determines how events progress. What I think and feel about another person affects how I relate to that person. The same is true with my beliefs about myself. Those thoughts determine how I perform.
However, I can choose what I believe. If I want to see a situation differently, I realize that only I have the power to do so.
My beliefs are particularly important when I am relating to others. If I believe a person has certain qualities, then I assume I know how they think and act. But when I change my mind about someone, I see the person differently, often for the better. I am free to determine what I believe about someone.
My beliefs about myself determine my level of confidence. Whether I am starting a new task, attending an event, or experiencing changes in my life, how my life progresses is largely determined by what I believe. And I am blessed with the power to change how I see things.
I know that I can bring success into my life just by changing what I believe. Inside myself, I make a decision about what I think is true. But if I observe factors that do not agree with my beliefs, I can change how I view other people and situations based on this new information.
Today, I plan to embrace my power to change my beliefs. I can change those beliefs that ultimately result in less than ideal situations, relationships, or behavior.
