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 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.
