Our beliefs shape our perceptions of reality.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out in your life?

We all have our own beliefs about how life works, particularly for us. “I just can’t seem to get a break.” “I’ve always been lucky.” “Bad things come in threes.” “The third time’s the charm.”

These beliefs filter how we perceive what is. Our perceptions of reality tend to conform to what we believe. We will certainly notice and be more affected by events consistent with our beliefs. There is great power in what we believe as it shapes the quality of our existence.

Today’s message reminds me of the relationship between my beliefs, perceptions, and experiences. If I don’t like the way things play out in my life, the most effective way to change that is to examine and alter my beliefs. When my beliefs support the reality I want to see, I can have the life experiences I desire. I cocreate the life I want by carefully choosing my beliefs.

How about you? How do you feel your beliefs affect your life?
