Human beings are social animals, we live, breathe, and die in society. Even before we came into being, we are being conditioned for everything – from what is right or wrong to how to offer prayers to how to behave with strangers. So your mind is already programmed for merely everything. Now understand like this – when you find yourself in comfort zones that means your mind has a program for that and when you don’t find yourself that means there is no program created or there is a program that that particular thing is not appropriate. If you have come to this page and if you realize this, then you can reprogram and change beliefs in subconscious mind and find ease at things which were difficult previously.
According to James Allen, “The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs.”
As Bruce Lipton says, “What you deeply believe in, what’s programmed in your subconscious mind – that’s gonna run your body and your life. Not some Genes and DNA.”
What you believe to be true is transferred by your nervous system to your cells and that changes the whole biology.
In his book, biology of belief Bruce Lipton said,
“Just like you and me, cells are shaped by where they live. In other words, it’s the environment, stupid.”
“Genes are not destiny! Environmental influences, including nutrition, stress, and emotions, can modify those genes without changing their basic blueprint.”
So the bottom line is that we have more control and more responsibility, when it comes to your abilities, health and mind and can alter the course of your present & future than you could imagine.
According to Orrin Woodward, “Belief is the magic key that unlocks your dreams.”
How your beliefs are responsible for your happiness
The human nervous system acts as a controller of the entire body including mind as well. It translates signals humans get from the outer world into electrical signals and transfer them to the cells to act upon. The problem arises when you consider them as a curse rather than a blessing. It may be due to deep ingrained beliefs, thoughts, consciousness, or environment which create signals to match with the reality and resulting in positive or negative action.
For example, if you have a bad experience with starting a business earlier and you continue to dwell over it rather than finding ways to overcome it, you’ll never be able to start anything over again. You can consciously take it as a curse or as a learning, it depends on you. Or you can consciously work on your belief system and removed it completely.
The best part is when you know you have to change, you can change your beliefs consciously.
As Simon Sinek says that there are hormones that determine human happiness – Endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and you need all four of them to stay happy
When you exercise, your body releases Endorphins. This hormone helps the body cope with the pain of exercising. You then enjoy exercising because these Endorphins makes you happy.
Dopamine is released when you get appreciated at home, work, among friends, etc. Although intentionally, you may not do it for appreciation but you feel accomplished because of the hormone.
So when people appreciate you for wearing a new dress, buying a new car, getting promotion, new job, house, Dopamine is released and you feel happy. Furthermore, you tend to repeat all those things to feel appreciated and feel the resulting joy again.
Serotonin hormone is released when you act in a way that benefits others. When you outdo yourself and do something that make others happy, or give back to the society or nature in some or the other way, it releases Serotonin. This is the reason many people are happily devoting their lives for the betterment of the society and not for money.
Even doing small things for the society like cleaning streets, parks, lakes, providing food, donating to old & children will generate Serotonin. Also because, you utilize your precious time which you can never get it back. Even a small help to your friends & neighbours makes you happy.
The final one is Oxytocin which is released when you get close to other human beings. When you meet others, greet them, hug them, kiss them, Oxytocin is released. You might resist other human beings to hug & kiss, but notice carefully when you take a child in your arms, both of you feel the joy of sea.
As per Peter McWilliams, “If you change the belief first, changing the action is easier.”
So many of you live in limited means with limited thoughts with limited actions not because you have to but because you THINK you have to. You are not driven by the internal force but by the external environment which is taking a leap on your internal faith and belief and supresses your true potential.
Some people also say that it is in your genes that you have to live life in limited means. According to Bruce Lipton – “the notion of genetic or DNA “determination” – is untrue.” It is practically possible that you can change your beliefs, alter your thoughts and make magical changes in your health and life for the good of you and others.
It is time you kiss goodbye to your outer neighbourhood and dive into your inner home and bring out the best in you.
Everyone faces failures in life; can you name a one who rose to the peak without failures. The difference they make is they believe in themselves that everything in possible, they believe they can and they will, they believe they will be the ‘first one’ for something, their belief is persistent, their belief is bigger than the noises from their peripheral world.
Now many people at times ask how to focus on their internal voice. The best way is to shut your ears to the outer world so that you are able to focus and concentrate. Your outer world today is mainly includes by social media, pubs & parties and mobile. You are fascinated by what others are doing than what you have to do. You think that showing off on social media, going out and commenting on each and every status is what the trend is and you must follow it to not left behind and look cool. Yes, you have to keep up with the trend but you must listen to yourself first and find where your happiness lies.
You define your reality by what you believe. And you can change your beliefs to change your reality for the better. Your beliefs are based on your own experiences and perception about it. There are two sides of the coin. Whatever happens take it as a learning experience or dwell upon it, it’s all up to you.
It is up to you!!
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said it simply: “Nothing can bring you happiness but yourself.”
