Beliefs have the power to create OR destroy…

“Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create meaning that empowers them or one that can literally save their lives” – Tony Robbins

Food For Thought: Beliefs have the power to create OR destroy…. 

💡 Beliefs are an essential part of who we are, and what we think we are to the world out there. Sometimes our beliefs may be based on faith, but most often, in my experience, beliefs stem from our actual experiences.

For the longest time, I thought I was a failure (having failed to launch a few startups in the early stages of my career). Once I started believing that I was a failure who couldn’t complete something, my ability to complete anything dropped to just about zero. 

WHY… ❓ 

✅ Cause I had a built in excuse from past experiences.

✅ But, after introspection and investing in my own personal development, I realised, this is not how the people I admire in life talk and do things, let alone they themselves had multiple failures along the way…

The solution… ❓ 

✅ The next time we may have a self-limiting belief, ask, is this empowering me to grow and reach my ultimate goal, or is it disempowering me by creating a self-inflicted obstacle❓

💎 If we argue over our faults and problems, who will argue for our goals and successes❓ Embrace the past as an opportunity to learn from, and not to hold onto 💎

Food For Thought: Are you Cherry Picking?

Food For Thought: Are you Cherry Picking?

What confirms your beliefs and objective facts determine what you see

Food For Thought: Are you CHERRY PICKING❓


💡 Cherry picking is a logical fallacy that occurs when we may focus only on selective evidence that supports our judgements, whilst consciously choosing to ignore evidence which may contradict it. A simpler way to remember this type of behaviour is often called confirmation bias.


However, when we choose to cherry pick in anything we do, whether personal or business, the exciting feeling of “I was right”; MAY NOT in fact be that, and here is why:


✅ By only searching for satisfaction that confirms our belief, we may NOT challenge ourselves to our true potential i.e. make room for a growth mindset
✅ By doing this, we ignore, suppress and potentially do not see, or do not test for disconfirming evidence for any of our ideas.

✅ Cherry Picking is often done at a conscious and subconscious level, and many studies suggest we do not believe what we see, rather we see what we believe and seek to confirm our ideas in subtle ways. 

✅ Being aware of this tendency is the first step in overcoming it. To become more aware of this tendency, study a book on optical illusions or paradoxes.

💧 Remember, self reflection never hurts, it only helps! So, the next time one decides to cherry pick, ask: Am I only seeing the evidence confirming my position (red cherries) and suppressing the disconfirming evidence (green cherries). 💧
