Where does a belief come from? The answer is that it is nothing more than a hunch that the person accepts as truth for themselves but it has absolutely nothing to do with reality. All a belief does is provide proof where there is none, and this can become a powerful driving force in a person. This force gets its energy from the feelings, not the facts, which are associated with the belief.
Feelings are not facts but can be accepted as facts. This can create a hell on earth for the addict or alcoholic, if they believe they “have to drink or drug” or “are bored “or “are powerless” then that is exactly the reality they create for themselves. This perception, however, can go the other way. If the addict would believe in creating a spectacular future and a new view of themselves, then that would be the reality they would create.
No one has an “Addictive Personality” but if they believe they do then they will be powerless to think otherwise. But if they have the belief that they can manage and control any situation or event, then they would have a “Resourceful Personality.” In the final analysis, each person creates their lives through the feelings they allow to dominate them. By changing those dominating feelings from disempowering ones to empowering ones, they can alter their reality and will absolutely have a “Change for Life.”
