“Man is what he believes” — Anton Chekhov

“Beliefs are basically the guiding principles in life that provide direction and meaning in life. Beliefs are the preset, organized filters to our perceptions of the world (external and internal). Beliefs are like ‘Internal commands’ to the brain as to how to represent what is happening, when we congruently believe something to be true. In the absence of beliefs or inability to tap into them, people feel disempowered.” — The Biochemistry of Belief

The Joys of Self-Conversation

Me.

You were not born alone. You will not die alone. You were born with a mind, a body, goals, a mission you get to decide.

Will it be fun? Probably not. Will it be necessary? I bet you, yes.

“We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for a moment that we’re not alone.” ― Orson Welles

“What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know. It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.” — Mark Twain
