Circumstances do not create the quality of our lives. They are the filter through which we view our world created by our belief systems. If I believe that things are going badly, then I can’t have anything but a bad day. Belief systems create our experience. Two people grow in the same difficult environment, complete with drugs and child abuse, one grows up to be president, and the other grows up to shoot the president. One believed that rising to the highest office in the country is the greatest goal that exists; the other believes that killing the president will make them immortal.
What we believe about the world around us creates the limitations of this world.
It’s like living in a glass box inside of the real world. We can see through the glass at what is possible but we don’t believe that we have what it takes get it.We start to experience life only as it is inside our box and the things outside become the things that other people get. Are these people lucky people or people willing to sacrifice something more important than what they will receive. To make our selves feel better about our limitations it becomes necessary to point out the problems associated with things outside our glass box. Money is the root of all evil, rich people are all unhappy, acting and singing are not real careers.The only way to get rich is to screw someone out of their money. It’s unhealthy to be thin, if I am a commercial success I’m selling out. We live the life we believe we are capable of. Some sales people can land big deals until there are a few more zeros added to the number and then they start to question the quality of their proposal, change things that have worked in the pass, make lots of phone calls to the prospect and either position themselves as unqualified or just make things so complicated that the competition looks like the best choice regardless of their offer.
Remember: Circumstances do not create the quality of our lives. It’s the filter through which we view our world created by our belief systems.
The model of truth I would like to present is.. Its lie a big lie, your brain is lying to you telling you that you can’t have the things that the world has to offer, like good relationships, financial freedom and joy.
