“Your belief is your guiding system or GPS, if it’s set wrong, it will get you lost. To reach your desired destination, make sure your belief system is set correctly.” – Veli Ndaba – ‘The Engineered Mind – to WIN’
Your results in life are closely linked to your belief system. It is said that, in life, you don’t get what you want but what you are. What you are is what you do. We, human-beings, are creatures of habits, meaning that we are what we repeatedly do. It is therefore that which you repeatedly do, based on your belief system, that produces your results.
A belief is a feeling of certainty about something, right or wrong. Now, how is the belief formed, you may ask? A belief is formed mainly by four things: 1. Role models, 2. Peers, 3. Environment and 4. Events in your life. These four factors subconsciously influenced you to believe what you now believe in, right or wrong. Believing in something doesn’t automatically makes it right, but instead, it justifies your actions.
As a child, you didn’t have the capacity to challenge, question and think through because you didn’t know better. Your conscious mind which is your clever mind wasn’t well developed for you to interrogate what was happening around you and hence things, right or wrong, just became the way of life and acceptable to you.
If, for an example, you believe you don’t deserve your dreams and I come and say to you, you deserve them, a conflict will immediately arise. Between your belief and what I’ve said to you, that you deserve your dreams, your belief will win hands down.
Getting a coach and asking yourself relevant questions awakens the mind and helps you to correctly set your mental GPS from being stuck in a loop of living in the past and introduce you to the part of yourself you never knew existed.
