Core beliefs influence how we interpret our world around us. Einstein once said "the most important decision we make is whether we live in a friendly or hostile universe" and this perfectly illustrates the role that core beliefs have on our daily life.
I learned that I should pay attention to my pattern of thoughts. Do I respond to events like I live in a friendly universe or do I act like it’s a hostile environment? Hmmmm...🤔🧐🤨
I feel like I could think of this scenario a bunch of times happening in my life and I have had both experiences of thinking they didn’t like me and others where I thought they just didn’t see me. I think this depended on how I was feeling at the time and how much I valued the other person and their opinion of me.
I learned that I view the world as hostile, not friendly. I would really like to change that.
I learned that I must choose to notice that I am feeling guilt instead of shame. With guilt I believe that “I did something bad”, such as having a negative thought or poor self belief.
I learned that my core belief may be that the world is a generally unfriendly place. I would like to change my core belief about the world. I think logically I know that most people are good and friendly and most places and events are safe. But my fear of being a statistic or a casualty of someone else’s warpath keeps me stuck with a negative world view. I will explore this some more.
I learnt what a core belief really is. I thought it was values. I now have a greater understanding of how to fully observe what and where my thoughts and behaviour arises from
I learned the importance of core beliefs and their impact on my experiences in life.
I learned that I have some hostile core beliefs about travel. I envision the worst case scenario and this prevents me from taking trips, taking average risks, trying new things. I really want to change this.
Your view of the world is important. Your behavior can improve. Practice knowing that you are lovable and can be loved. Try knowing maybe it’s because they didn’t see you instead of oh they don’t like me. your second encounter could even show you that maybe they don’t like you, but since you didn’t come at them angry or spend anytime being upset about it you changed their minds about you because you stayed you and optimistic and unbothered!
I learned that core beliefs are the reason I react the way I do sometimes. This makes so much sense!
I learned that my core beliefs can affect the world around me. I can begin to notice the negative automatic thoughts and try to understand the underlying core belief that is associated with it.
Our core beliefs affect how we see the world. If we lived in a hostile belief, we tend to put up a wall all the time with dealing with other people. When we see the world in a happier way, everyone you meet seems to be a friend.
I learned that the vuca world could be understood through the lens of core beliefs whether we see through a pleasant and unpleasant lenses, we can interpret the world around us in the same way.
I learned that believing you live jn a friendly universe can change thoughts and perceptions, which then can change interactions, relationships and events.
I am hopeful, because of Einstein’s quote, that I can change my reactions to the environment around me and
that this can improve my life.
well well well... i need to work really hard on this one. i have A LOT of negative/defensive core beliefs which stem from my childhood and later traumas. let's see if i can manage
I believe we live in a hostile world
I do not trust and that is why I make assumptions or miscalculations of what others are thinking about me
Decide if you believe you live in a hostile or friendly world. It’s as easy as deciding.
Choose love, light, safety, compassion, and helpfulness. And that’s what you’ll see
I noticed that when I am ignored, I automatically go to the They don’t like me, their mad at me, that was rude thoughts. Which puts me in the people pleasing mode. My core beliefs point to not good enough and lack of self love/worth that I need to work on. I can get curious when these thoughts come up and where it is coming from.
I noticed that maybe I have something to work with here and it’s not hopeless.
I will work on my core beliefs about myself. This made me realize that I really do have a lot to work on to reverse some of my own negative beliefs about my worth.
I learned that core beliefs don’t change. You recognize them to give you insight into your experiences.
I didn’t realize what a core belief was and could see how I am affected by mine
I need to work on my core beliefs about myself. While I acknowledge and understand the difference it is quite easy to take the hostile route.
I view the world through the lens of my core beliefs. Do I believe that the the world is mostly a hostile or friendly environment?
Live live through rose tinted glasses…
I know one when I see one;perception is key! Fuck everyone else and do your best!
This is key!
Mindset and perception is everything. Like when you wake up and decide you’re not already going to have a good day or don’t want to do the things you’re doing that day, then yes it’s not going to be a good day. But if you can change your mindset and perception and think of it at another angle, deciding to wake up in a good mood and have radiant energy, you’re going to get that back and of course it’s going to be a good day.
If you believe you live in a hostile universe your behaviours will be interpreted through that lense which can lead to hyper vigilance and misinterpretations
Finding our core beliefs is an ongoing journey as we grow and learn through life’s experiences. Being perceptive of the way we interact and treat others is a great starting point to uncover some of our core beliefs. What feels very wrong or even abrasive, can be a sign that we may need to work on our inner beliefs and feelings.
I recognize why I feel the way I feel from circumstances
I feel the way I feel from circumstances
I recognize why I feel the way I feel from circumstances
Interesting example. I think for me in general I give people the benefit of the doubt. But in some situations a core belief of not feeling good enough about myself kicks in. I think it might be connected to my own mood.
I learned that I perceive the world thru a negative lens all thanks to my core beliefs. I also realized that billions of interactions happen with myself and the world and misinterpretations
I learned that I perceive the world thru a negative lens all thanks to my core beliefs. I also realized that billions of interactions happen with myself and the world, and my misinterpretations of those interactions are based on my negative core beliefs. Once I am able to modify my core beliefs, my world will not seem so depressing.
Negative automatic responses
I want to pay mindful attention to my patterns of neg. auto. Responses to see if I see my world as hostile or friendly
This gives me hope
My core beliefs have changed recently and I didn’t realise that what I’ve been telling myself I am, which isn’t great, has probably been why my experiences don’t seem as exciting as I used to find things. Cant wait to work on readjusting my core beliefs back to something less negative and hostile :)
I noticed that I have a go to, which I guess is a core belief, that I don’t matter, that I am not seen or heard, that I’m of no interest. It’s the first thing I think when there’s an interaction that doesn’t go well.
I’m learning that I need to choose to live in a friendly universe. I’m guilty of forcing and controlling what happens around me and to me.
As for the thought experiment I would believe that the person didn’t see me. Not that they wouldn’t recognise me or that they don’t like me. I’ve actually lived something similar. A great conversation with someone that I swapped numbers with and I forgot her name. But when I commented on her what’s app post, we got talking again and she remembered all our past conversation!
I’m working on not misinterpreting other peoples actions. It’s hard. Particularly hard in my romantic relationship.
I learned that the core beliefs I have can really affect my entire life if I don’t learn how to modify them to be more positive.
I learned that my intuition or what I have always considered my “intuition” is actually affected by and through the lens of my core beliefs.
I was interested in learning about how our core beliefs effect our perception and response to people and situations I found the speaker was able to help me experience the example of the situation to understand how I was responding emotionally to the situation.
I learned that when I allow my core beliefs to be negative my reactions and perceptions about situations will be different than if I had positive core beliefs about myself. Negative thought patterns and negative core beliefs about myself perhaps cause more misinterpretations regarding interactions with other people. I may think someone doesn't like me and ignores me, but maybe they just didn't see me. Or maybe they were busy and not ignoring me. My core beliefs will dictate how I interpret the world around me.
Everything we think and do is impacted by our core beliefs. By choosing to challenge our negative core beliefs, we can change the way we think, feel and act. This will enable ourselves and others to see things in life through a more positive lense
I still don’t know what I feel deep down. I know I have lots of things to overcome and I am tipping I see the world as hostile mostly but I am determined to try hard and see it more positive. I will have to do a lot more in the world of understanding how it all works but this was an excellent start for me into the beginning of a new beginning for me. Thank you 😊
My negative core beliefs are such a deeply ingrained part of me but I work to challenge them every day and believe I will get to a place where I can feel more positive about my lovability and worthiness
I felt nothing it did nothing it was literally a waste of time
I learned that our core beliefs shape our perception of the world and how we behave in this world
I noticed that my core belief and internal responses are changed by the mood I am in and my hormonal cycle. I am aware when my perspective is off and take the personal steps to resolve those feelings for myself, that way if I’m still disappointed by a persons response, I can still feel ok.
Don’t take things personally. Turning a negative situation into a positive situation effects your attitude.
The idea of core beliefs is very similar to the idea of inner worlds.
Choosing the right lens
Today I choose to believe that I am loved and lovable. This is difficult not necessarily due to core beliefs but instead a culmination of interesting life circumstances of which shaped the way I perceive reality. I chose at the time to see the world through a negative lens. Einstein is right on point. Choosing to see the world as kind and loving is key to having a more happy and successful life.
I view life as if it were hostile territory. I misinterpret the people around me’s behavior and body language due to hyper vigilance from childhood trauma
It blows my mind as well how many small thoughts are based on those core beliefs. I also noted at how far I’ve come. Before in my younger years I would have had a negative lens based on my own insecurities, my underlying core beliefs. I note how my reaction was more positive shows that I have made some progress. Have a beautiful day!!
When it comes to body language I always over analysis in a negative way this gives me understanding how I see the world and pre judge due to my core beliefs
I Learned that our core beliefs have an impact on how we see events in our lives. I don’t understand how we can change our core beliefs since they are based on our life experiences.
I’ve learned that depending on what your core beliefs are will decide how you interpret different scenarios you experience in life.
Time to think about why I react automatically to incidents
Time to think about why my first reaction is pessimistic. Does an incident need to result in a binary optimists or pessimistic reaction?
Shame, negative self esteem <=> view the world as a hostile environment
Hostile versus friendly
I like to think I believe the universe is friendly, but I fear I may feel it is hostile. But just the idea of noticing my reactions in order to change my core beliefs is huge! I will start doing that from now on. I want to be (and believe I am) a glass half full kind of person.
Thank you Einstein and my guide today
The momentous H bomb consequences and horror is a magnification of this hostile universe - well the man made portion for self destruction. It calls to me that in all of this beautiful order there must be some balance or tilt toward peace and justice as MLK gave us. So the moral arc calls us to practice kindness and friendliness. Namaste
Been gone but back
Thank you… this hit very close to home for me… I have been dealing with letting NAT lean towards the glass half empty instead of how I was raised, which was in a very loving home with deep Core Beliefs of always lends a helping hand. Life has been hard, I have been struggling, but thank you… Einstein and for this recommendations today. It brought me back.
I learned that I Have a negative world of you as a core belief.
I want to be observant about this and learn how to change these thoughts\what to do when I have these thoughts right at the beginning of them before they ever turn into feelings.
She mentions regarding Einstein’s quote. I used to feel like I lived in a hostile world. Now I’ve move toward the other side of the that spectrum and am steadily between 50% or middle to 75% toward the other side. I believe I have moved the needle by consciously working on this through therapy and other methods like AA and Tony Robbins type stuff.
People who view the world as a friendly place are less likely to feel hurt and anxious. I can change my thoughts patterns to, oh they were not paying attention, or maybe they are having a bad day… etc
Reframing my way of thinking
I noticed that the thought alone that the world is a friendly place, and not a hostile place, automatically in my heart gave me a sense of peace and calm including taking away feelings of any self-hatred/self-loathing.
