Belief! Do You Love What You Do?
There just HAD to be a job out there that I would LOVE! According to my calculations, half my waking hours would be spent “on the job,” and there was no way I was wasting any of it being miserable. We’re supposed to love what we do! That was my belief. And it still is.
Do you love what you do?
If you do, congratulations! You’re doing something that you believe in. And that feels good.
If you don’t, there is hope… if you believe. Do you honestly believe there’s work out there that will give you what you want? It’s a funny thing, whatever you believe, you create. Your beliefs are THAT powerful! They are the lenses through which you see and operate in the world. If it appears possible, you’ll look for the way. If it doesn’t, you won’t even try.
So, before you begin to reinvent your career, find the love of your life, or buy your first home, work on your belief. Make sure you believe it’s possible whole-heartedly. It’s your ticket. Without it, you can’t get on board.

What if you want to believe, but you don’t?
For example, I want to become a strong public speaker, but I have the belief “I’m not good enough to speak in public.” With that belief, I will run in the opposite direction. I don’t want to embarrass myself. By doing that, I will not become a strong speaker, because it comes with practice. Do you see I created that with my belief?
To create a new belief, I have to think different thoughts. A thought that could help me is “I can learn to public speak.” When I think that, I’ll look for opportunities to practice. I’ll volunteer to speak. And every time I do, I’ll find evidence (if I’m looking) that it’s true… I CAN learn, because I am. With adequate evidence, the brain naturally replaces the old belief with the new one.
Align your thoughts with what you want to create. And you will!
