Three Toxic Beliefs You Need Out of Your Mind Today


A drummer in band, is legally deaf, and has been since he was born. But he can still hear low bass tones and feel the vibrations from the drums and other instruments. Honestly, he’s such an incredible drummer that most people don’t believe he’s deaf. Sometimes I can’t believe it myself.”

One of the team member envy’s this drummer, always feeling inferior to him, and feeling depressed about the fact what other people say about him.

So, the question is: How do you get somebody on track with positive thinking and not feel so inferior. There are thousands of people who comes from different walks of life and upbringing, who experience this inferiority and superiority complex.

The three most common cause of such beliefs can be:

There’s plenty of life left to be lived.

Don’t let rude people ruin you. No matter how much negativity is thrown at you by others, there is absolutely no need for you to stay put and partake in the decay they choose for their own lives. YOU decide how your soul grows. Nobody has that right to play with your soul.

Because the truth is that what people say and do to you is much more about themselves, than you. People’s reactions to you are about their perspectives, wounds and experiences. Whether people think you’re amazing, or believe you’re the worst, again, is more about them. I’m not suggesting we should be narcissists and ignore all feedback. I am saying that so much hurt, disappointment and sadness in our lives comes from our taking things personally. In most cases it’s far more productive and healthy to let go of other people’s good or bad opinion of you, and to operate with your own intuition and wisdom as your guide.

So stay out of other people’s drama and don’t needlessly create your own. Instead, imagine what would happen if you spent this entire day, and every day hereafter, with all your energy directed toward your most positive possibilities. Rather than being annoyed, be amused. Instead of getting angry, get away. Life is too short to argue, fight or be negative in any way. Count your blessings and move on from the drama with your head held high and chin up.

It’s important that all my family and friends approve of my goals.

Most of us are not raised to actively seek our calling. We may not even know that we have one. While we are growing up with our parents, we are seldom told we have a place in life that is uniquely ours alone. Instead, we are encouraged to believe that our life should somehow fulfill the expectations of others – that we should find our happiness exactly as they have found theirs.

Rather than being taught to ask ourselves who we are, we are trained to ask others for permission. We are, in effect, schooled to live other people’s versions of our lives. Every day is designed and developed as told to us by someone else. And then one day when we break free to survey our dreams, seeking to fulfill ourselves, we see that most of our dreams have gone unfulfilled because we believed, and those around us believed, that what we wanted for ourselves was somehow beyond our reach.

It’s time to unlearn these lies and make changes. It takes courage to grow wiser and become who you really are. And today marks the change of attitude in your life.

They can do it, but that doesn’t apply to me

Just because someone else can, doesn’t mean you can, right? Because you’re not good enough, or you’ve missed your chance, etc. You look for reasons they can do it but you can’t – maybe he’s an Internet entrepreneur or freelance writer because he has no kids. Maybe she’s way fitter than I am, so she can run a marathon. Maybe she doesn’t have all the work and family obligations I have, or has a supportive spouse, or doesn’t have bad knees.

OK, fine, it’s easy to find excuses: but look at all the other people who also have considerable obstacles and have done it anyway. Lot of people have a family, and have dealt with significant loss in their lives, and they still have managed to succeed on many fronts. And just as we’ve turned things around for ourselves, we know hundreds of other people who’ve done the same. People reinvent themselves at all ages – 50-year olds starting families, 60-year-olds graduating from college for the first time, 75-year-olds starting successful businesses, and so forth. And stories abound of people with disabilities or illnesses who overcome their obstacles to achieve great things. An myself finding new meanings towards life and happiness, that self-motivates me.

Your obstacles can be overcome!

Feeling stuck is a FEELING, not a fact. So never assume that you’re stuck with the way things are. Life changes as you grow, and so can you. It’s never too late to live a life that makes you personally proud. Just remember, that there’s no age limit on changing your course. be brave and courageous.

And of course, if you’re struggling with any of this, know that you are not alone. Many of us are right there with you, working hard to feel better, think more clearly, and get our daily thoughts back on track.
