Beliefs are unique to each person. Where did they come from? Many are derived from authoritative figures in childhood such as family members, teachers and influential people in our community. As impressionable young children, we take on beliefs without question and live by them until we see otherwise.
Fast forward to today as fully grown adults, we would all benefit from testing these old beliefs to see if they are true or not. Often they are not. For example, if a parent or teacher criticized our work in a harsh way, we may hold the belief that we are poor writers, bad artists, or incapable problem solvers, etc. Be open to testing these old beliefs and creating a new and evolved you!
