Reality is what you take to be true.
A continuation from the post of Tuesday 1st September 2015
What you believe to be true is uniquely personal.
What you take to be true is what you believe.
Frequently what you believe has little to do with your best interests.
Most of what you believe is what you want and you want to be true but you are not getting.
What you believe is based on your perceptions that you hope will support what you want.
It is frequently said; without hope you have no chance. The facts are that no one has ever achieved anything worthwhile with hope because hope is underpinned with doubt and stress.
All worthwhile achievement is driven by planning, focus and determination. If you let hope into the equation you are lost before you even begin.
Hope is a belief in spirits and fairies – smoke and mirrors. Hope cuts the ground away beneath the planning and success process because; it relieves you of the responsibility to perform.
What you perceive depends on what you observe.
If you observe success as a product of hope, you may perceive you being very good at hoping.
If you observe success as a product of planning, focus, determination and success you may perceive yourself as being very good at succeeding.
What you believe to be true is invariably what you rarely question or even think why you believe it to be true.
This is why what you believe so often jeopardises what you want. That situation builds your stresses and you do not know it or why it is happening.
Robert P. Denton’s new book ‘High Performance after Burnout’ ISBN 9781512294705 available at www.amazon.com or order from your local book store, explains how your thinking processes work, why stresses and stressors dominate your life and most importantly; how you can change your thinking processes to take back control of happiness and abundance and put stress and stressors where they belong.
