What we believe determines our thoughts. What we think determines our perspective. Our perspective causes us to label people and events and to assign value to them. We use labels and values to define both ourselves and our focus. What we focus upon is what we empower. What we empower determines our view of reality. Our reality determines how we choose our actions.

It has been said that perception is more important than reality, and for most of us this is true. More importantly, what we believe is what develops our view of the world. We establish our position in relation to it and our role based on our beliefs. These also impact our relationships and our opinions. Often these beliefs are derived from what we have been taught, what others have observed and have told us, or whatever spin has been placed on words or actions.
