Are your beliefs empowering or sabotaging your success?
Beliefs are the thoughts in our head that influence our behavior, attitude and actions. The beliefs that affect our lives are either Empowering Beliefs which enable us to lead flourishing lives or Self Limiting Beliefs that stop us from achieving our goals and where we live a life where we languish and flounder. One of the most common reasons people fail to achieve their goals is simply because they don’t believe they can achieve it. They’re lacking self-belief. Dr. Demartini says “Your values arise from and are therefore determined by your conscious or unconscious voids (what you perceive as most missing). What you perceive as most missing (void) in your life therefore becomes what you perceive as most important (value). Your underlying private voids drive your overlying public values.” In this episode Alma Besserdin talks to Dr. Demartini how to discover your purpose and maximize your success.
