How are beliefs different from each other?
There are two classes of beliefs, based on how they affect human behavior: empowering beliefs and limiting beliefs.
Empowering beliefs are often used by people to accomplish things. For example, a person can believe that he is born with a natural writing talent.
This belief can help the person develop other related beliefs such as “I can write stories that other people want to read.”
This type of positive belief can help a person overcome his present limitations by improving his outlook of life.
A person’s empowering beliefs can help him succeed as long as he remains motivated and passionate about his target outcome.
What are limiting beliefs?
Limiting beliefs are just like empowering beliefs.
You hold these ideas as true (whether you are consciously aware of them or not) and they guide how you think and take action.
