Have you ever wondered what makes some people happy and other sad with exactly the same situation? It is because of our beliefs. We do not see the things as they are; we see them as we believe they are. Here are three beliefs which can transform you and your life incredibly.
“We are what we believe we are.”
You are a product of your thoughts because your thoughts become your action. Your action brings you the result you have in your life. So there is only one way to your desired results and that is by changing your thoughts.
One way you can change your thoughts is by changing your beliefs. I offer you three beliefs which have helped me to transform my life.
1. Life is much more than just survival.
Most people want to achieve success and I have no doubt about their intention, but the truth that most people do just enough to survive through days. You all know what I am talking about.
There are some basic things in the world today that you must do to survive. You go to school or university. You find a good job and you start earning enough so that you can buy a home, a car and a bit of luxury. That is the basic definition of survival in the twentieth century.
In a research in EUR, thousands of people were asked that what they would do if they were offered one million dollars. Most people answered that they would buy a better car, a bigger house, or some other luxury item.
Do you know what it reveals about us? That we do not have a plan for our own life. Soon, you will spend that money and end up in the same situation you were in. How do you think so many footballer end up on the street after earning hundreds of millions?
Have a plan for your life beyond survival. Your life is much more than just surviving. Your existence must benefit the nature, people and yourself.
Think about it in detail. Plan how will you contribute to nature and people. If you figure it out, your life will be different in every aspect.
2. Every person in the world has his or her own beliefs.
If you have a conflict every time someone came up with an idea which is not same as yours, you are a victim of judgement.
Judgement is an attitude most people have when they believe they are right almost every time. It is a perfect recipe for a stressful life. It is the seed of your mediocrity.
If you do not understand it until now, it is the time. Everybody has his or her own thought process. There is every possibility that others idea is better than yours. Just because it is different does not mean it is worse.
Accept this fact that each of us has different beliefs and different reasoning so it is natural that each of us deals with situations differently.
Accept the people as they are. Do not judge anything or anyone until unless you have gone through a detailed analysis of all the option available.
3. You are a citizen of the world.

It is one of the most strong belief which can transform you. It is us who decide what opportunities life offers. If you want to experience a life of unlimited opportunity, you must have a mind which can see these opportunities.
Most people in the world have not taken time to expend their limits. They want to be rigid with the limitations they were given since they were a baby.
Most people have a perception about everyone in the world. They believe in black race or white race. They think Westerns countries are better than eastern countries. They think one particular religion is bad and other is good. They have an opinion about Asian and African.
We live in a world of connection. You believe it or not, but we all are connected with each other. And, what kind of success we achieve in life is highly depends on what kind of network we have.
If your mind is limited based on your race, country, religion or culture, how would you expect to build a network which can lead you to the success? A limited mind also limits your ability to learn, to growth, to explore and to experience. Success is impossible without these elements.
Develop a mindset which is free from these limitations. Become a citizen of the world. This will not only open the door to new opportunities in your life but also will bring you a new perspective to look at the world.
These three beliefs can transform you in many ways. It can bring you success, happiness, and peace if adopted. I personally believe that these three beliefs have enough to get you almost everything you want in your life.
It takes courage to fight your existing beliefs which are handed over to you. You have all the power and courage is needed to do so, but you need a firm decision. Make a decision that you will invest time, energy and money to develop these beliefs so that you can bring a future which brings the best of life to you and to those you love.
To your transformation
