Wherever you are in your life, you are exactly where you are because of your beliefs. When you speak to yourself what do you say – words of encouragement or words of criticism? If you speak words of encouragement, you may have some level of confidence and be moderately successful at achieving your goals. However, if you speak words of self-criticism, you may find that you are unsure and not as effective at achieving your goals as you would like to be. You may not realize it, but your self-talk is creating your belief system. That belief system is either helping you achieve more or keeping you bound where you are. To get to where you want to go and be who you want to be, you must understand that your beliefs are the powerhouse of creation. Who you are, as well as who you will become, is created by your beliefs.
