Laying New Foundations

By Karen Vally on 22 Aug 2016



It's so easy to lose sight of the fact that we are in charge of our own destiny. We can shape our own lives by making a few conscious decisions. Wayde Van Niekerk and Caster Semenya are shining examples of what happens when we do. But first, we need to shift our focus. We must be willing to risk doing something differently, something we've probably never even dreamt of doing...

Have you ever stopped to think about your beliefs? A belief is an idea or principle that we hold to be valid, true and useful. Sometimes, there isn't even any logical or supporting evidence for those beliefs. As we mature, we accumulate various beliefs from our parents, siblings, teachers, friends, the media, our environment, our experiences and our powerful minds. But very few of us ever stop to question the validity and relevance of those beliefs, as we navigate through life.

What do you believe about yourself and your world?

What if you were to do a quality control check on all your existing beliefs about yourself?

What DO you believe?
Where do your beliefs come from?
How old were you when you first believed them?
How do you know that they are true?
What are the benefits of holding onto those beliefs?
Which beliefs are keeping you stuck?
How do you get rid of them?
What is stopping you from adopting one or more new beliefs?
How do you strengthen these new beliefs?

I encourage you to take a few minutes to follow through on the above very worthwhile exercise. It could turn out to be one of the best investments you have ever made in yourself...

So many opportunities slip through our fingers when we procrastinate, merely exist, operate on autopilot and remain entrenched in our comfort zones. We miss out on truly living and exploring our potential.

" The challenge is to learn how to do our own thinking and evaluating and not to depend on another or others to do it all for us."

What if we were to lay some new foundations?
