August 7th of ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time‘.
How hard would it be to allow yourself to change your belief about something?
Following on from yesterday changing your beliefs can be a bit trickier. Our beliefs are in charge of our decisions. If you want to change your decision making process you need to take a good look at your beliefs. Take some time to consider what influences you are allowing to affect your beliefs. What papers are you reading? What news stations are you watching or listening to? What do your friends and family believe about certain things? All these have influence over what you believe.
What beliefs do you have that are either the same as or in contradiction to your parents or even grandparents? Many people will reject the beliefs of these authority figures as a form of rebellion. Those beliefs may become ingrained although years later you may actually believe differently. So how do you know?
You need to ask delving questions like: ‘Why do I believe [xyz]?’ and ‘Am I sure that my belief in [xyz] is sound?’ or ‘What evidence do I have for believing [xyz]?’
It’s possible to change a belief in an instant, as with many other changes, it’s the getting ready that takes the time.
