If your desire is larger than your belief, it means you don’t actually expect what you want is going to happen. In fact, if it does, it will kind of catch you by surprise.
I heard about this saying in a video related to the Law of Attraction. It instantly sticks on my mind.
So how does it play out in terms of manifesting what we want? Is it counterproductive then? We attract things through what we believe in, or in other words, through vibration proximity.
I remember what the late Dr Wayne Dyer used to say from his lectures, “Believe it, and you will see it”. Not the other way round. If you need to see it in order to believe it, you may never get there!
I know how important and power our belief systems is. Needless to say, it caught me by surprise to realize in some case, my desire is far greater than my belief in achieving it.
It leads me to question, how often do we believe in what we want or what we dream of is actually possible to fulfil?
So here is my personal example: I have always believed that I can write and self-publish a book or books. But do I believe I can write a best seller? Or a great book?
The truth is, I never even dared to ask that question because subconsciously I didn’t believe I could do it. But I know enough about the power of my own belief and intellectually I have opted to shy away to fully examine what is that I really believe.
So next question, why not?
Is it about confidence? Or about faith?
What I have discovered is that through consistent practice, meaning, writing and working on my craft, I will gain confidence. In time, my faith will also get stronger. My belief in my own capacity or even destiny will grow.
We can not think our way into this, in order to grow my abilities or faith in this case, I need to act. It is about practice. The chop-wood-carry-water type of action may seem mundane, but they are the building blocks. The day in day out type of work is the key to improve my craft.
In time, I know I will feel more confident, I will improve my craft, and good writing or even a best-seller may eventually happen.
To desire is easy, to have faith it takes work.
It is clear in my mind that I need to believe in myself, and instead of merely doing affirmations (it is useful too) I will compound it with consistent writing and learning to improve myself.
And THAT is the work.
What about you? What is your greatest desire right now? Do you believe you can fulfil it? If not, why not? What you think is sabotaging you, is it your belief system or various form of fear? Please share with me as I’d love to hear your experience.
