Why I still schedule time to evaluate my beliefs

It’s good discipline to evaluate your beliefs regularly. Twice a year is enough. Once a year at least.

Why?

Because you don’t always align with what you say you believe or believe the things you say. Using time to evaluate the disconnects between our stated beliefs and our actions helps us discover our true beliefs.

You can’t state a belief. You must believe a belief.

That statement only sounds odd until you read it a few more times and realize how true it is. Stated beliefs are only sometimes real. Believed beliefs are always real.

No matter what you say or how vehemently you say it, your actual beliefs under the surface, the ones you believe, guide your decisions and actions.

Don’t assume you’re aligned with your beliefs. Evaluate it regularly.

Brick by brick. Do the work.
