Beliefs affect the way you see the world. Negative beliefs can slow you down and inhibit your happiness. We will tell you how to filter these thoughts and turn them into positive ones.
This is how you recognize negative beliefs
Your deeply held beliefs affect how you perceive yourself and those around you. You already live by these beliefs so naturally that you no longer consciously notice them.
It becomes difficult when you block yourself with negative beliefs. Because the pressure you put on yourself slows you down. Just like the negative image you paint of yourself.
Observe yourself in daily life: Do you often encounter thoughts such as “I have to…”, “I can’t…”, “I must…”? There may be a deep-rooted belief behind it that is holding you back. Also ask yourself: “How do I evaluate myself?” or “What do I expect to happen?”

Negative beliefs are like nasty whispering voices that tell us in crucial moments: “You’re not good enough” or “You can’t do it.”
This affects not only our thoughts but also our behavior. When you keep yourself small, you automatically appear less confident and willingly shy away from more difficult challenges.
The problem is that with this behavior we confirm our negative beliefs. With another failure comes more negative thoughts. And it all starts over again.
Psychology: You can immediately identify insecure people from these sentences! Are you too hard on yourself? This is how you find out if you’re getting in the way of self-doubt.
Why do you think that way?
Beliefs feel like facts. That’s why we rarely question them. You must change that! In particular, the origin of your beliefs can be crucial. Validate your recurring thoughts:
- Why do I assume this thought is realistic?
- Do I associate a specific experience or feeling with this thought?
- What is the evidence for this?
If you identify a negative belief and suspect that this belief may be getting in the way, take a step forward. For example, ask yourself:
- Does this thought help me feel the way I want to feel?
- Will this belief help me achieve my goals?
Transform negative beliefs into positive ones
Have you recognized your negative beliefs? Now it’s up to you to turn this into something positive and powerful! Instead of driving with the handbrake on, you now want to drive forward with the accelerator depressed.
You can now replace your negative beliefs with positive thoughts. Whenever you find yourself in a similar situation, tell yourself, “I am valuable,” “I can do this.”
Admittedly, this is sometimes easier said than done. For starters, it can help reframe your beliefs. For example, instead of saying, “I can’t do this,” say to yourself, “I can do this.” Still no”.
Write down your new belief and repeat it to yourself over and over again to really manifest it.
Treat yourself with love and talk to yourself as you talk to those you love around you. This way you effectively support yourself in achieving your personal happiness.
