Beliefs


A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind. - Elly Roselle

Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her. Lao Tzu

Belief gets in the way of learning. - Robert Heinlein

Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives. Anthony Robbins

Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad. - Denis Waitley

Every man prefers belief to the exercise of judgment. - Seneca

I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should be malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant. - Rufus

I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong. - Bertrand Russell

If you dont have solid beliefs, you cannot build a stable life. Beliefs are like the foundation of a building, and they are the foundation to build
your life upon. - Alfred Montapert

It is hard to let old beliefs go. They are familiar. We are comfortable with them and have spent years building systems and developing habits that depend on them. Like a man who has worn eyeglasses so long that he forgets he has them on, we forget that the world looks to us the way it does because we have become used to seeing it that way through a particular set of lenses. - Kenichi Ohmae

It is okay to stand firm in your beliefs; just do not impose them on others who may be equally resolute in theirs. - Unknown

Its the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen. - Muhammad Ali

It's an indulgence to sit in a room and discuss your beliefs as if they were a juicy piece of gossip. - Robert Heinlein

Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he becomes. - Bhagavad Gita 

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning. Mahatma Gandhi

Our belief at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the one thing that insures the successful outcome of our venture. - William James

The lack of belief is a defect that ought to be concealed when it cannot be overcome. - Lillian Smith

The less depth a belief system has, the greater the fervency with which its adherents embrace it. The most vociferous, the most fanatical are those whose cobbled faith is founded on the shakiest grounds. - Dean Koontz

There is a force that controls all your decisions. It influences how you think and feel every moment you're alive. It determines what you will do and what you will not do. It determines how you feel about anything that occurs in your life. That force is your beliefs. - Anthony Robbins

Theres nothing that can help you understand your beliefs more than trying to explain them to an inquisitive child. - Frank A. Clark

We may not respect all the beliefs of others, but we should respect their right of having them. - Validivar

With most men, unbelief in one thing springs from blind belief in another. - Georg C. Lichtenberg

You can have anything you want if you will give up the belief that you can't have it. - Dr. Robert Anthony

Your belief don’t make you a better person, your behaviour does. - Unknown
