Why it’s important to stand for what you believe in
Your beliefs and convictions play a major role in shaping who you are as a person, and it’s important to be aware of this and live your life accordingly. So think about what you believe in, and make sure that everything you do is in line with these values!
When you stand for what you believe in, you are living in accordance with your values and convictions. This is important because it means that you are true to yourself and that everything you do is based on what you believe in. When you live your life this way, it makes you a strong and principled person, and it also makes it easier to make decisions because you already know what you stand for. So if you’re looking to live a life of purpose and meaning, start by standing for what you believe in!
My beliefs and morals are the foundation of my actions.
What I stand for is what I stand on. That’s a motto that defines me, and if you want to know who I am then you need to understand what I stand for first. What do i mean by this? Well, first let’s look at myself independently of other people; standing up for myself means making choices based on the facts that are relevant to me. These choices make up my boundaries and guideposts.
Every once in a while I’ll meet people who have fears about the limits of their beliefs or situation, even though what they fear has been disproven. By reasons to back it up these individuals will claim that believing isn’t real because other people aren’t doing what they want, are lacking knowledge, are selfish or will do the wrong things. For them, it seems that believing is wishful thinking and they only feel safe if they leave it out of their lives.
They’re right in one aspect. If you don’t take action then you won’t experience much change, but this doesn’t mean that your choices should be based solely on what others have done, or that you need to feel “safe” before taking any risks. In fact, if everyone was too busy trying to be safe then nothing would ever happen. All this safety does is stifle creativity and ambition.
My advice is this: stop worrying about what other people do, how other people present themselves, or how others could do something differently. Stop using fear to inform your choices and start using reason, knowledge, and faith instead. You have a brain that knows how to process information, so use it. Be the change you want to see in the world in a way that makes sense in your situation.
What happens when I stand for what I believe in?
When I stand for what I believe in life changes; ambitions are fulfilled, feelings of contentment arise and relationships improve. I know this because these are the things I’ve experienced in my own life.
I discovered that believing was not merely wishful thinking when I began to get what I needed. Note that I didn’t say “what I wanted”. This is one of the reasons why I recommend doing it. If you want something badly enough you’ll make it happen, even though you may have to go through a time of only receiving what you need. Believe in yourself, act on yourself and it will happen.
The boundaries I’ve set for myself are based on experience, knowledge, and feelings. The feeling of wanting to do something is the motivation for doing it while the feeling of accomplishing something satisfies me. These are the guideposts that help me decide what I want to spend my time on, and I find that when I’m following what feels natural to me positive things start to happen.
I stand for my beliefs, and by standing for them I can make changes in myself and the world around me. There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you believe in yourself enough.
Doubt and uncertainty is a guidepost.
Do I have doubts? Yes, I do. Do I have thoughts that I’m going in the wrong direction? Yes, I do.
This is my mind and my experiences acting as a checkpoint. I need to assess my path and my journey through life. If I’m doing the right thing, it feels right. I know within the depths of my mind and my soul when I’m doing something wrong.
I can take time to look back at how far I’ve come. I know that I have goals and I’m working to reach them. Sometimes the direction of travel has to change. I have to be flexible, especially when I have to rely on the actions of others to complete a task.
I have to be prepared to change and allow for circumstances to delay or hinder my progress. I can plan for those hindrances. Experience has given me just enough insight to know that I need rest and time to gather my strength for new challenges.
Even when I appear to be standing still, I’m not. I’m looking forward and constantly using the foundations of my beliefs to keep an open mind and to not be distracted by “maybe, could’ve and what if”.
I have to do it. Nobody else will do it for me. Nobody else will write this blog, or take my thoughts and turn them into words.
I stand for action. I stand for making things happen, even though sometimes I don’t want to do it.
I am writing, I am blogging, I am creating podcasts. I hope that you find the direction to live a fulfilling life too!
I’ve learned that there are things I need to do before I get what I want to do. One of those things was working in an industry that I didn’t like. It set me up with some financial security and for that I am grateful. What it didn’t do was give me the time to look into my own heart and soul. I didn’t have time to figure out who I am.
That has changed in the past few years. I stopped drinking and started living. I stopped working for others and instead started working for myself. I stopped trying to please other people to get the emotional attention that I so desperately craved.
I stand for doing the next right thing. I hope that you do too.
