Beliefs vs. Results

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 8:20 am

As we head into the weekend, I’d like to offer you a measuring stick that will yield more precise results.

It’s an easy measurement to take. Just compare your beliefs to your results.

What you believe is irrelevant if it doesn’t deliver results. I’ve mentioned it before, and it bears repeating now, if your religion isn’t working for you, it’s time to find a new religion.

Religion, in this context, is anything you fervently believe in that just isn’t delivering results.

Because you believe in something doesn’t make it true. It just means you believe it. I’d like to change the word “true” to “useful” in the last sentence, that way we won’t argue about unsubstantiated truth. So the real question is: “Are my beliefs useful?”

Seems we rarely examine our beliefs; we just throw them out there as though they are true. They may be true to you but the question remains: “Are they useful?”

The interesting thing about beliefs is that we inherited many of them. They really belonged to someone else but became ours through social, cultural and parental conditioning. That means that oftentimes we are arguing for someone else’s limitations. It’s hard enough arguing for our own.

So it’s an easy drill. Stop and notice your beliefs when they turn up; then make an assessment if they’re getting you results.

If you need a question to ponder this weekend, may I recommend this one: “How useful are my beliefs?”

All the best,

John
