What is your "core belief" about yourself?

A core belief is the basic view of ourselves that we formed in early childhood--positive or negative--about our worth, our rights and the importance of our existence . We also learned certain behavors in order to fit in and to meet others' expectations or approval. But, because we know of no other way to be, we carry those core beliefs and behaviors into adulthood. It's all we ever knew. Consequently we attract the same kind of people as in the past and, by the same behaviors, create the same qualityof relatonships.

What was your early core belief and how has it impacted your behaviors and relationships in adulthood?

Write a story in which you change your core belief and tell how the new core belief has changed your life.

I've just finished reading Celebration!, which I enjoyed very much, and I was delighted to find your blog. I have put a link to it on my blog. I hope you don't mind.
