What you believe about money determines how much you have. What you believe about women determines how you treat your wife and how you get along with her. Likewise, what you believe about men determines how you treat your husband and how you get along with him. And what you believe about men and women determines how you treat your son, your daughter, your co-workers, and the strangers you meet. It determines how you vote and how you feel about the people you do business with.

What you believe about yourself determines how you dress—whether your clothes are clean and fashionable and whether you shine your shoes. What you believe about love determines how much of it you give and receive. What you believe about success determines how much of you have. What you believe about happiness determines if you are or not.

Now do you see how I can tell you exactly what you believe by just looking at you and your stuff? Your beliefs leave a trail that shows up in every area of your life.

Look at your life. Take some time to consider the way you live. Think about your belief system and how it affects your possessions, your relationships, your success, and your happiness. Maybe for the first time ever, you’ll know why your life is the way it is.

... make your own list about what you believe ...

After making your list, do you see how what you believe has affected your results? Look at your life and try to determine what belief you have that has created and supported that result. If you are not happy with your results, change your beliefs.
