I absolutely love the quote for this week’s blog about the Being Joy™ habit “Be Believing”. The first time I read it, it made me literally stop in my tracks. At that very moment I realized how strong our beliefs really are. How they limit or how they empower the vision we hold of what is possible.
But can we really grow a new limb? Why not? Afterall, for eons, people believed the world was flat or that only birds could fly. And it hasn’t even been four decades since the first personal computer was sold by IBM on August 12, 1981. (Remember them?) Just look where we are now with technology advancing at warp speed, making what used to be believed as science fiction, now common place. And think about what’s still to come!
So how does this make you think about your own life? What limiting beliefs do you own that are keeping you from remembering your joy and fulfilling your destiny?
Any of these sound familiar?
How about the belief that you’re not worthy of love, that you’re not good enough. It’s hard to see possibilities and attract something different when you’re stuck in victimhood.
Of maybe you’ve bought into the illusion that there’s not enough. Not enough money, not enough time, not enough opportunity? Easy to get trapped in this condition, especially now when the world feels so upside down.
And here’s one of the biggest lies that many people have bought into. The belief that “it is what it is”. The notion that things are fixed, and you can’t change them. And when you adopt this as a core belief, you put any sense of purpose aside while you give in and give up. It’s one of the most destructive falsehoods that immobilizes communities and thwarts positive change.
You see, it’s up to all of us to believe in possibilities. To believe that we each have a gift to bestow upon the world. To believe that everything is possible. And as I once heard Wayne Dyer say at a workshop many years ago, “no one knows enough to be a pessimist.” What do you believe?
Until next time, keep your frequency high, your mind open, and your joy ever expanding!
