No matter who we are, what we do, or why we do it, there is one thing about ourselves I have found to be true — we act as how we believe we are. This means that if you hold certain beliefs about what kind of person you are, these beliefs are likely to manifest and become reality.
Think about it like this: if a child in school is constantly led to believe that they are a great, successful student, then they are more likely to have the confidence to persevere and become a good student. However, if a child is constantly given negative feedback and led to believe they don’t have the tools to succeed, then they are less likely to have the confidence or care to try to succeed.
This also means if you’re determined to say, do, or believe things that limit yourself in life, there are higher chances you will not reach your potential. However, if you’re determined to fight for great purpose, success, or happiness in life, then who knows what can happen.
