Our beliefs influence and mold our behavior. They form our lifescript, in the sense that whatever we believe dictates how we respond to the situations and people we meet in our life. If I believe that I will always find a way to succeed no matter what I do, I am more likely to do just that than is someone who believes they can never have what they really want.
Most of our beliefs are formed by the age of seven and are shaped by our parents. In most cases we don’t realize what our beliefs consist of and yet they influence every moment of every day.
Here are some beliefs that are so vital today:
