Thanks Andy. It’s sometimes helpful to be that simple and clear about the two being distinct. The thing that Carlos realised, which I’m trying to explain, is that it’s also important to note they’re intrinsically linked and actually not distinct from one another. Beliefs and Thoughts are the same in this respect. Beliefs are more long term (but change over time, like Values), Thoughts are momentary (and leave quickly, like Needs). Beliefs give rise to thoughts (and Needs actually, but that’s another blog post).
