Our good old friend, Mr. Ford, was right. Whatever you believe becomes your reality. Our beliefs are intimately tied to our identity and bonds us with whichever community shares them. Therefore, when you’re defending your belief…you’re defending more than just an idea. You’re defending yourself, your tribe and your existence.
Our life is determined by these beliefs. We’re so familiar with them, we don’t recognize them. What if we shined light on those beliefs lurking in the dark, not serving us in any positive way. It may not be simple. Giving up your beliefs can sometimes feel like jumping off a cliff. But I promise you, if you jump off this particular cliff you’ll be so light you’ll fly.
