Don’t Get Stagnant… Question Your Beliefs
Some individuals believe that they've no chance of ever living the sort of life they want. Maybe somebody in their past told them that they would never make anything of themselves. So they go on accepting this message. Something in their heads keeps telling them that it’s not worth making much effort, because they’ll never succeed. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Don’t fall prey either to the thought that something must be true because that’s what lots of individuals believe. However many share a notion, it’s not the slightest bit more or less likely to be truthful as a result. The number of believers has no bearing on how right it is. There was a time when just about everybody believed—indeed, knew for an visible fact—that the world is flat and the sun went around it daily. Guess what? That didn’t make them right.
Question your beliefs perpetually. It’s so enticing to take comfort in beliefs when life is hard and the future is unsure. Beliefs help you feel stable. You’ll feel anxious about distinguishing that the ideas you trust could be false; but, if you’re thinking clearly, you’ll see that a real belief will always stand up to the closest examination. It’s the false, outdated notions that won’t— and they must be moved out of your way. It's always worth asking yourself, “Is this truthful? How do I know that it's true? Is it still to be trusted?” Unexamined beliefs are no better than fairy tales: occasionally pretty, occasionally comforting, frequently funny, and invariably based on what you want to be true, not what is.
