“Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.”  ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I am amazed how often I hear the words “with my luck.” Our general society has a several standard phrases that we all tend to take for granted, the aforementioned being the poster child. Statements like “with my luck” have an underlying belief that is the driving force of what is being created in the person’s life. As these words are uttered, we often no longer even look at the meaning behind them. When someone says it, they usually are not thinking the “luck” is good. In fact the implied tone that comes with the phrase says quite the opposite. The overwhelming implication is ”poor me.” 
“With my luck” is a ploy for sympathy. It may not consciously be a ploy, but the subconscious is hard at work looking for a loving reaction to the statement. The weird thing is it only makes the listener feel bad and so the “poor me” person is then believed to be a not pleasant experience. So the belief behind the statement is made manifest in reality. The “poor me” person now experiences their belief in the very physical world.

We are each the creator of our experience. It’s the choices we make and the belief we put behind them that make our outer experience. I was having lunch recently with a person who was in a state of lack. During that hour I heard her say, “They can’t get blood from a turnip.” My response was,”I am not a turnip.” She realized at that moment the belief behind the statement. She was focused on the lack instead of the prosperity. The interesting thing was she had recently manifested miracles into her life on a grand scale and yet the underlying subconscious belief still was holding her back in other areas.

What subconscious beliefs are the barriers to your maximum potential? What things are you putting faith in that do not serve your highest goals. The quickest and easiest way to discover them is to pay attention to your words and the meanings behind them. Change your words, change your beliefs, change your life.

“The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working. To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now, and dissolve the fear in our minds.” ~William James
