Believing Is A Lifestyle
I’m sure many of you have heard it a thousand times, “Believe it and you will achieve it.” Well . . . it’s not quite that easy. Sitting around on a random day and just believing that you’ll become a millionaire is not going to do much. Believing is a lifestyle. You have to practice it every day, multiple times a day until you’re sick of believing! Believing with all your might is required for things to come true.
In the bible, we’re taught by Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to believe with all our heart and mind and that whatever we ask in prayer will come true. Many people will say, “Dr. Sinu! I’ve tried believing my entire life and nothing has ever manifested!” And then you gave up I take it? You see, believing requires a change in your personality.
This change involves persistence, stamina and the refusal to accept anything less. If you lack these traits, you are at a disadvantage because you are prone to giving up on your beliefs and settling for mediocracy. You have to understand something and this is not meant to scare you: you almost have to become delusional in your beliefs in order to see them manifest into your life.
But delusional in a good way; not the pathological kind that is known as delusional disorder. Being delusional in your beliefs is another way of saying, “Believe what it is that you want to believe to the point that others would tell you that it’s impossible.” And believing is not a one time sit-down session where you meditate and believe for 10 minutes and expect results in return.
Believing is a lifestyle. You must breath, sleep and eat beliefs all day, every single day, rain or shine. You must visualize with feelings in your mind, seeing yourself in your mind’s eye what you want to be doing and feeling it as if it were your current reality. It’s difficult to do that every day but it will pay off in the future with enough persistence.
I never knew that I would become a doctor until I turned 20 and not even then did I know that I would one day be in residency practicing psychiatry! I thought that I was going to end up in Hollywood as an actor or screenwriter, even though I still would like to accomplish these goals one day! But I got my mind right and set myself up to stay on one path only until it became a reality!
I never knew that I would one day start a blog called “Defeating Stigma Mindfully” and interact with people all over the world! But one day as I was sitting in my bedroom, I stumbled across WordPress and the rest was history. My point is that you can accomplish whatever you want!
You just got to have the dreams, vision, ambition and work ethic and actually set out to accomplish your goals!
