The Power of Believing

The Power of Believing

What if I told you that every single person has a super power? That’s right! Every person on this earth has the power of believing inside them. This idea of believing can literally be applied to every single thing in our life. Believing in yourself, your relationships, your abilities. The examples are seriously endless. I am so excited to share with ALL of you about the power of believing.

Believe in SOMETHING

In beginning the conversation on believing, I just want to state that I will not be sharing my personal beliefs when it comes to religion, spirituality, politically, etc. I simply want to share some thoughts about the topic of BELIEVING.

OK, so Let’s start with a simple question. What do you believe in? Answers to this question can come in literally any form and the answers are endless.

So whatever answer you came up with, ask yourself why you believe that? If you can answer this question easily, chances are you have formed a strong belief towards this specific topic. And if it takes you a while, maybe your belief towards this specific topic isn’t as strong as it can be.

I said I would not share my personal beliefs but I do want to give you a GREAT example of the power of believing.

In this example, there will be two sides to the story so make sure to read and re-read for if need be.

Example 1: So we have an individual that believes in God. This person goes to church every Sunday and has given their lives over to the Lord. They live their lives through God’s lens and speak God’s words. They believe every word in the bible and practice those words on a daily basis. You would say this person has a STRONG belief in God, correct?

Example 2: OK, now the other side. You have an individual that states they believe in God. They never go to church, have never read the bible, and does not comprehend the words of the lord. This person has never made an effort to learn more but says they believe in God and all God stands for. Would you say this person has a STRONG belief in God?

Before I continue I want to state that this is just an example. Every single situation and every single person is different. I create this example to simply prove a point about the power of believing.

Moving forward. Let’s say that the two individuals I created above go throughout their entire life in the way I described. Throughout their lives, example 1 understands the struggles in life because it’s what God has planned for them. God has created a path for this person so they handle the struggles of life better than the person created in example 2. In example 2, when this person faces an obstacle, they have an issue overcoming that obstacle because they question them self, or their abilities/capabilities.

I will even extend this example even further. Let’s fast-forward to the end of example 1 and 2s lives. They can see, and feel the end is coming. Example 1 is OK with what happens next because, due to their strong beliefs, they know life is a journey, not a destination. They embrace God’s plan and living the afterlife with him and all of his children. Example 2, on the other hand, is scared. They don’t want to pass. They may say they believe in God and his words but if they TRULY believe, then they wouldn’t be so scared. Right?

Again, everyone is scared of dying. Nobody wants to leave their loved ones. The point I am trying to make is that example 1 TRULY believes in what they believe in. In result, example 1 is OK with passing. They understand and have come to terms with it. Example 2 claims they believe in the same thing as example 1 but they do not live their lives according to their beliefs.

How can you say you believe in something so strongly but your actions and words do not line up with that same belief?

The power of believing comes from within.

Let’s talk on a bigger scale. How many types of God’s are out there? How many religious beliefs out there? The answer is A LOT. What I continue to try to pound into your head is, whatever you believe in, believe in it wholeheartedly, with EVERY fiber of your being.

Words of Affirmation

The next thing I want to quickly touch on to give you a better understanding and appreciation of the power of believing is creating words of affirmation.

If you have not read my post on “The Power of Writing Affirmations“, I would highly suggest you to do so!

This next topic is something I personally do on a daily basis.

Creating words of affirmation are very powerful.

A couple examples I use almost every single week are:

  • I am strong
  • I am smart
  • I am enough
  • I believe in my abilities and capabilities

Part of creating words of affirmation, you must say these words throughout your day. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

But that is not the only thing you must do. When you say these words, create an emotional connection with these words. Truly believe the words you are saying. If you say “I am beautiful”, then believe it! The power of affirmations will create a strong belief if you say them enough but to speed up that process, you must TRULY believe in what you are saying.

Once you say and believe the words you are saying, live your life in the same line as the words you speak. If you say “I am smart”, then become smart. Continue to learn and continue to be the hardest worker in the room!

If you say that you are smart but your actions show you sitting on the couch doing nothing or just simply not perfecting your craft, then you will not become smart. You can become all that you are setting out to become!

Manifest The Power of Believing

To summarize… If you believe in something, believe in it with every fiber of your being.

Create words of affirmation and apply emotion when you speak those words.

Take ACTION. The way you live your life should line up with the words you speak and your beliefs.

Lastly, I want to talk about the examples I created earlier in this article. That portion of this article is not meant to offend anyone so I apologize if it may have. I created that scenario to effectively explain the power of believing. I understand every single individual is different and every single situation is different. The only thing I want you to understand is that if you do believe in something, TRULY believe in it. I don’t care if it’s a door knob. If you believe in that door knob, give as much energy, emotion, understanding, and appreciation to that door knob.

As always, if you have comments, questions, or concerns, please leave them below. I would love to hear back from every one of you. I love feedback and other stories. We all have a different story and walk a different path. Let’s share our experiences with others in hope to change a life! I appreciate your love and support.

With Gratitude,

Joseph

  1. Another great post Joseph!

    With all the goal setting that I have been doing, these are words I needed to hear. Sometime I set goals but I don’t care that much about the outcome.
    Your post has reminded me to set goals for things that matter in my life, and to go after them.
    I am bookmarking your site for future posts.

    1. Irma,
      Thank you so much for taking the time once again to read and comment! It is much appreciated! I too have set goals that I may not invest much time, effort, and energy into achieving those goals. Trust me when I say that nobody is perfect! But if we strive for perfection then THAT will keep us motivated and determined to continue to learn and grow as individuals!

      With Gratitude,
      Joseph
