Positive Beliefs
Beliefs are the opinions or points of view that we develop over a time as a result of what we learn & experience

CASE - 1
At work
Sameer believes that management has

already decided who is going to get that new position

Sameer decides not to bother applying

for the new position. He is disappointed to learn that someone less qualified got the position he really wanted

CASE - 2
In relationships
Jina believes that nobody understands her or cares what


happens to her

Jina keeps her worries to herself. Her friends & family are unaware of her needs & offer her little support

Any belief causing self doubt about ones potential & ultimately leading to withdrawal or quitting is a BARRIER

Discover your beliefs

Beliefs Example Empowering Barrier

I will never get a promotion There are no jobs out there Learning can be fun People are basically good

Turn your barrier beliefs to empowering beliefs

OLD BARRIER BELIEFS I will never get a promotion NEW EMPOWERING BELIEFS I am good at my job. I will get a promotion if I keep improving my skills & learning more about the company

Attitudes are ways of responding to the world around us
