I agree with some reservations. But first of all, you have to believe in your unlimited potential.

As Ramtha said, "You cannot see anything that you do not first contemplate as a reality."

"How do you typically define yourself? Do you tell yourself and others that you are slow and methodical, that you have two left feet, that you are lazy, or unimaginative or that you can't hang on to money?

In our unconscious self talk, most of us rarely say positive things about ourselves. List the positive and the negative ways you describe yourself. Then look over your list and contemplate how those definitions limit your ability to be cosmic in your outlook and performance."

So, one must be very attentive to watch what he is thinking, so that the negative thoughts could not come in and wreak havoc to your positive outlook. Remember that what your mind focuses on, expands. So think positive always.

"Belief has the word ‘lie' in it... and that pretty much sums up what the world has us believing about ourselves."

Then what should I opt. I am getting confused. Please tell me in what context he used this quote.

Agree, if you truly, truly believe it.

#3

agree, its not what happens to us, but what we perceive of it. if you think of your self a certain way, who's going to say that it's wrong?

I would modify it to "We get back what we believe we deserve." Sometimes we think we are a genius but deserve shyte anyway.
