Believe – Def: to think that something is true, or that what someone says is true
What we believe about ourselves often is a predictor of how our life turns out. Researchers have reported that if a patient believes in the doctor’s ability to facilitate his/her healing and the doctor believes the patient will get well the patient has a better outcome than those who don’t hold similar beliefs. Beliefs are not permanent. We can change negative beliefs about ourselves and adopt positive, optimistic beliefs about all aspects of our life. The more we live these beliefs, the more they affect our actions. For example, if I adopt a belief that I am healthy and incorporate the belief into my life, I will adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Believing is so important. It leads the way to healing, learning, and accepting. 🙂
