I recently read something about believing – that people’s beliefs constitute a worldview affecting everything we do, from how we interpret current events to what we eat and the conversations we have with our neighbors. But for something so central to our life experience, we rarely sit down and take notice. The recommendation was to write down your worldview beliefs, and then examine whether they reflect who you are and how you want to live your life. The results can be interesting.
A List of My Worldview Beliefs
Human beings are better than we are led to believe. Humanity is better than politics, than violence, or than what appears on the news and social media.
We set our standards too low in terms of:
- what we talk about;
- who we associate with;
- our work conditions;
- what we expect from ourselves and from others.
People don’t respect themselves enough.
Too many of us have bought into the notion that comfort is more important than personal expansion.
People are more valuable than mind-sucking jobs and burdensome debt.
Too many people accept the idea that living a mediocre life is acceptable.
We should expect more from our lives than what society tells us is possible.
Those at the top of the pyramid benefit from the status quo and will resist change.
The Universe is awesome, amazing and filled with incredible things.
Humanity can change reality.
What are your worldview beliefs? Do they reflect who you want to be – your “best possible you?” Are you living your beliefs, or do you have to change your life to better align yourself with them? (I have some work to do in that area.) It might be that you need a new set of beliefs – beliefs that would act as a a type of North Star to better guide you and inspire you as you move forward on your path.
