You have probably heard the expression, “Seeing is believing,” but I think it’s a more truthful statement if we turn it around. “Believing is seeing,” Consider the millions of pieces of information coming at us each second of the day! We have to sift through all this and select what we see. We select the information we see from what we already believe. That’s how strong our beliefs systems really are. So I like to say, “Believing is seeing.” First we believe it, and then we see it!
Our thought-step for today has to do with our belief systems. What is a belief system? A belief system is the foundation of every choice we make. The belief system is like the structural basis of what we hang our actions onto. It’s like the rafters that we build walls onto, or the chassis to which a car body is attached. So our belief systems may strongly affect our choices and actions.
Today we will identify one simple belief that we hold near and dear to our hearts. It doesn’t need to be a big belief, just pick on that comes to mind and contemplate that belief. These are thought-steps so you don’t need to do anything else but spend a minute or two thinking about it. Think of a strong belief that you hold. Now think of the choices and actions you make, have made, and are likely to make because of that belief.
So for example, if I believe that I am not good at math, am I likely to become a Math teacher? If I believe that I am uncoordinated, am I likely to want to be an athlete? If I believe that I am religious, will I pray when confronted with a near death situation? Our belief systems affect our actions and choices.

Have you selected one belief? I suggest that you select one belief every day from here on out, and reflect on that belief for a minute, to realize how it affects your choices and actions. This is an important thought-step to take. As we shine the light of our thought-step awareness on each belief that we use, we are likely to understand which beliefs are positive, negative, and truthful; which ones really serve us, and which ones undermine or enhance o our true desires.
