"Man is what he believes."
Our beliefs really DO determine who we are. What we believe about ourselves determines whether or not we try something, and it is likely to determine whether or not we fail or succeed. Our beliefs shape our view of the world. We operate on our beliefs as if they were true and defend those beliefs in spite of evidence to the contrary. When given a choice to believe in yourself or not, pick the belief that empowers you.
This week: Examine your beliefs about yourself. What beliefs do you hold that empower you? Which keep you stuck? Which limit your ability to succeed? If your beliefs are limiting you, ask yourself, "What would I need to believe in order to succeed?"
