Why Do You Believe What You Believe?
By Chuck Cusumano + Jillian Broaddus
When was the last time you challenged the foundations of your own beliefs? When was the last time you asked yourself why you believed something?
It’s easy to believe something just because our closest circle thinks that way, or because we were raised with a certain belief system. However, I challenge you to challenge your own principles. Not just once, but challenge them often. Perform objective research, if necessary, and consider other sides of any argument. If your current beliefs hold true, keep them; if they don’t, be brave and humble enough to form new judgments.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny”
- Mahatma Gandhi
