Our personal belief system is what we deem, regard, accept or “see” as the ultimate truth in life.

As a compass provide us with direction on land & sea, so does our Belief System provide us with directions for everyday life.

Our belief system shape our perceptions, attitudes, views and interpretations of life - in general - and events in particular. Believes serve as a directive to the ways in which we interact with our environment, our priorities (i.e. our values), our expectations and the choices that we make and the decision that we take.

The beliefs that we hold dear - strongly influenced by the organized religion that we were/are exposed to - is a culmination of the experiences and lessons learned throughout our life time. Our beliefs are what anchor us and give purpose to our life's. Anything that effects our beliefs, ultimately will change what comes to us in our everyday lives.

Our belief system is what give us both direction and meaning in life, which shape our attitudes and guide or direct our choices and subsequent actions or behaviours (i.e. our beliefs are our GPS in life).

Our various beliefs - the very foundation of our active belief system - are characterized by the following…

  • accept as true; take to be true.
  • credit with veracity.
  • follow a credo; have a faith; be a believer.
  • evaluate, judge or regard and look upon.
  • be confident about something.

Our beliefs are fueled by an internal locus of control, driven by different ways of knowing, mainly controlled by our unconscious mind, “protected” by our coping mechanisms, directed by our environmental noise filter and steered by our higher self needs and expectations.

Beliefs are all about sticking to our guns, walk our talk and persists. Despite… possible oppositions, ridicule, hurdles placed in our way and problems or challenges that we encounter.
