When does a belief bring out the best in you?
When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.

that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.

should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
