Belief is something we have to create ourselves often. Not everyone believes in us. Not everyone roots for us from the grand stands. Sometimes we have to tell ourselves that we are enough, and we can do anything we put our minds to.
Something I was once told was “You can do anything you put your mind to.” What does that mean? How do I put my mind to something?
We put our minds to something by deciding it is important to us. If we carry it around our whole life it can become a character trait or a moral. Something as simple as deciding to choose your words wisely when talking to people is to take care to speak respectfully and honestly to someone. Carry that around for the rest of your life and suddenly honesty and respect becomes a habit and possibly a moral.
Beliefs can be many things from morals, to our opinions of people, to what we believe exists. Many people think that only special groups of people believe in things they cannot see, like scientists and religious people. In reality we all believe in something we can not see… oxygen perhaps. All people believe in something that we technically cannot see. The biggest one of all, in my opinion… is love.
I believe in a lot of things I cannot see. My biggest one is God. You might not be able to see him, I believe I can. I see him in nature, I hear him in the silence, I feel him comfort me when I am laboring to show him off in all of my actions and thoughts, I also feel him ever present in my decision making. When I read his word or listen to the men of God I feel him making what I need to hear or read stand out to me like a sign. My morals/beliefs are based off of the convictions I am given in his word. I refuse to have anything less than what he has planned for me.
Everyone’s beliefs are different. I implore you to discover what yours are so that you may know yourself better.
