Your Beliefs – do they release or restrain you?

Beliefs play an important part in defining who you are, what you are about and what you stand for. Beliefs help you navigate your way through life, helping you see what you want and achieve anything you want.


Without beliefs you would be lost and dis-empowered, like a car without an engine, a bird without wings. When you believe that you cannot do something, then you have already determined the outcome.

When you hold a positive belief about yourself for example ‘I am a deserving person’, then this naturally attracts possibilities of good things happening to you. Equally when you hold beliefs that do not serve you for example ‘I am a bad person, I am unworthy’, the chances are you will experience unhappiness, struggle and a re-occurring sense of separation/loss in your life.

Shedding some light on how your beliefs might be hindering your relationships, your career/work choices and your habits is a first step in making personal change. Here is a simple exploration exercise you can do:- (go for 3 responses on each one)

a. Write down some beliefs you have about how you see yourself/who you are ( starting each with ..I am ..)

b. Write down some beliefs you have about what you are capable of (starting each with .. I can…)

c. Write down some beliefs you would love to have that can help you achieve what you want (starting each with..when I have x I can achieve y…..)

The more aligned you are with beliefs that encourage happiness and well-being in your life, the better equipped you will be to operate from a sense of possibility and choice.

How equipped do you feel right now to be happy?
