How your Beliefs Create your Reality

A few years back, I was in college studying for my Engineer degree. A few weeks before the final exam, I accidentally broke my arm during my boxing training. There were two problems with such an accident. The first is that there was no option to delay the exams and the second was that I needed both hands for the engineering drawing exam.

After few desperate attempts to delay the exams, I discovered that I only have two options: either drop the term and waste 6 months of my life or take the exams and fail. The fact that I never used my left hand to write made things even worse.

For few days, I thought that I was stuck, but I hated feeling helpless motivated me to find another way. I decided to learn how to write with my left hand, but it seemed like an impossible task because I only had few days to practice before the exams.

It was even hard for me to eat using my left hand. I still remember how I occasionally missed my mouth while trying to eat using the left hand.

How your beliefs create your reality

Had you been in my place, how would you have reacted?
With disregard to your answer, you must be sure of one fact: your answer depends greatly on your beliefs.

If you believed that you are stuck, you will feel helpless and do nothing about it, while if you believed that there is a way out, you would do your best to search for a solution.

I decided never to give up an option, so I continued training myself to use my left hand. After few days, I managed to write perfectly with my left hand; then, in two more days, I used all the drawing tools (compass, ruler, and whatever can come to your mind).

I took all the exams with my left hand and did well. When I had the cast removed, I was able to write using both hands simultaneously. I remember how my friends gathered around me one day to watch me writing the same phrase using both hands simultaneously.

Helplessness is a choice.

I could have chosen to feel and act helpless, and I would have had a good excuse, but because I understood that helplessness is a choice, I chose not to be helpless.

The same goes for you. Do you believe you are stuck? Do you think you are helpless?
If your answers were yes, you need to make a quick check on your beliefs, for they are responsible for your current reality.

I do not deny that life can sometimes be hard and that unexpected problems happen, but the one fact I can never acknowledge is that there is no way out.

When you believe you can do it, you will find a way no matter your face.
