Beliefs and Convictions (mx)

Beliefs are concrete rules and generalizations that are built upon old memories of pain and pleasure as well as upon our interpretations of experience. They are conditioned commands to the nervous system that filters our perspectives, shapes our thoughts and transforms our experience of reality.

Our beliefs guide most of our actions — subsequently influencing what we will and won’t try, and the goals that we are willing to set. Moreover, our beliefs determine our levels of creativity, intelligence and the expectations that govern how we manage our lives on a daily basis.

Beliefs are created via repetitive thought, feeling and action; they are created when we get emotionally involved in the events and circumstances of our lives; they are created when we hold onto opinions; and they are created through the acquisition of references over time.

Convictions are deep rooted beliefs that are extremely difficult to change.
