The self-fulfilling prophecy

Maybe you know that from yourself or from others Peoplethat they/we often attract exactly what they/we believe in:

That's exactly where she learns Ms., who is convinced that no man will ever be serious about her, only ever know such men who then treat her really badly and are not serious about her. A possible belief could be: "I am not lovable."

I am not valuable? Nonsense!

Such negative beliefs are very often generalizations that carve something rock-solid into stone that doesn't always have to be true. This often makes life difficult for us, because we are closed off from the possibility of having other, perhaps much more positive experiences.

For example, a clerk who feels that because of her Performance and their diligence must get a raise. Unfortunately, she is waiting for this increase to be offered to her, i.e. for her performance to be seen and thus rewarded.

They send this message

Since she carries the belief "I am not valuable" in herself, she does not come up with the Ideato propose or demand a salary increase.

With her superior, however, comes the message indicate that with their payment satisfied and therefore there is no need for action for him. The logical consequence of this is that she doesn't get a raise and her belief "I'm not valuable" is confirmed.

Please check your faith

The Problem The belief pattern listed here is due to the limiting belief that prevents the clerk from expressing her desires and Set to reach. It shows how people often act according to the ancient beliefs that arose in their childhood and youth.

Unfortunately, these beliefs are no longer consciously checked in adulthood, but remain anchored in the subconscious of the people and thus determine their actions, even if these beliefs are no longer true.

What we think must be true

When we believe something, we act as if what we think is true. This Behavior leads to corresponding reactions in our fellow human beings.

We then see their reactions through the spectacles of our doctrine of faith, and above all perceive this as meaningful, which again confirms the doctrine of faith. Our thought pattern acts as a filter of our perception, which confirms events in the sense of what we believe.

Hand honestly, how often do you think: "I'll never make it anyway"? Unfortunately, it is precisely this belief that ensures that this is exactly what happens. Result: They don't make it either, but get stuck in the morass of their negative beliefs.

Too little use

Hand on heart, how often do you think: “I can never do it anyway”? Unfortunately, this belief ensures that this is exactly what happens. Result: They don't make it either, but get stuck in the morass of their negative beliefs.

There is an obvious reason for this: Followers of the belief “I can never do it anyway” will approach their goals with little inner strength and self-confidence. They will also see minor obstacles or setbacks as confirmation of their belief. Eventually they will give up entirely, which in turn confirms their thinking pattern.

6 Typical beliefs

Restraining beliefs prevent us from reaching our desires and goals. Such as:

  1. I am only loved when I bring performance.
  2. I never find a partner that suits me.
  3. Life is hard.
  4. All beginnings are difficult.
  5. I can not do it.
  6. I am not worth it.

How do beliefs arise?

But how do such beliefs actually arise? Most of the convictions in our childhood when we take the messages from important reference persons. The most important roles are played by the parents, but also grandparents, teachers, siblings or other people who are important to us such as friends, sports trainers, music teachers, etc.

But even in the adult age beliefs can be formed. They arise from the experiences of life and often lead us to experience certain situations again and again.

The experience makes it

For example, the experience “I am only loved when I help others” or “If I do exactly what my partner says, then she will love me.”
Another reason for the Education of beliefs is a unique experience with a strong emotional character.

An example of this would be that a family member dies in a car accident. As a result, the belief that "All cars are dangerous, I will never drive a car" is formed.

The danger of thinking loops

Finally, beliefs arise through a permanent repetition of one and the same thought.

For example: "I can't do it."

There is an obvious reason for this: Followers of the belief “I can never do it anyway” will approach their goals with little inner strength and self-confidence.

Even minor obstacles or setbacks will see them as confirmation of their beliefs. Eventually, they will give up altogether, which in turn confirms their thought pattern.
