Our beliefs were instilled at a very young age, and many of these beliefs are toxic and false. Our beliefs have been established from our past experiences and interactions with family, friends, teachers, church, the media, and culture. Fortunately we recognize the beliefs that hinder us and begin to shift our thinking and expectations to develop beliefs that serve our happiness and success. Our mind is like a garden and we can plant what we see fit. By tending to the thoughts and ideas that we want to grow we can develop new inspiring beliefs. Negative beliefs can be like weeds, but once you have planted enough flowers and cared for them, the weeds will cease to have the same negative impact. You may not believe all of the positive thinking initially, but the more you fill your brain with positive ideas the more you will start to believe them, especially if you see results.
