You Become What You Believe: 7 Ways You Can Change It

John R. Miles – Why you become what you believe and seven ways you can change it | Brought to you by Masterworks ( code passion)/

Notable American radio speaker and author Earl Nightingale once said, “We become what we think about.” This truthful statement embodies and emphasizes just how vital our mindsets and beliefs are to creating the lives we live.

Why do we become our beliefs?

A belief is any cognitive notion that is held as accurate. It is the acceptance that something exists, even though its existence cannot be proved. This means that the potency of a belief is entirely dependent on a person’s choice to accept or reject it.

Take, for example, two people with similar qualifications who are given $1000 to use for starting a new business. One of them believes they can start a business, profit, and earn thousands of dollars — a beneficial belief. In contrast, the other person believes $1,000 is too little to start anything of meaning and fails to start anything — a restricting belief.

What we believe is a choice. We have the power to choose what we believe, and our beliefs become our reality.
