How can you harness the power of belief to improve your life? For one, you can engage in practices that change your habitual way of thinking, such as keeping a gratitude journal (link is external)or learning mindfulness meditation (link is external). These practices can help you notice and appreciate the good in life and keep you from getting caught up in unconstructive, negative thoughts. Second, you can set clear intentions for how you want to approach each day and make an effort to align your behavior with those intentions. Even when things don’t go your way, you’ll know that you’re moving in the right direction and using the leverage that you have. And finally, you can recognize that while beliefs may be powerful, they are certainly not all-powerful, and life is full of suffering that we neither invite nor deserve. Recognizing the limitations of belief can make us more compassionate towards those who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances, including ourselves.
