Super Entrepreneur Tom Bilyeu On How Your Belief Becomes Truth

Have you wondered how Tom Bilyeu managed to create the second fastest growing private company in North America? Well, it started when he watched the cult film, The Matrix.

The main premise of the movie is about examining your beliefs through self-awareness. You have to let go of the idea that believing what worked for others will work for you too.

By doing this, by allowing your true self to unfold, your beliefs start to become truth.

3 Ways To Turn Your Beliefs Into Truth


It’s difficult to dissociate from the beliefs you were raised with as a child, especially if you learned them from your family. However, now is the time to stand on your own and challenge that inner voice of resistance. Here are three ways to turn your beliefs into truth.

1. Practice self-awareness

You can recognize a limiting belief by your emotional response. For example, repeat the belief, “I can’t do it” and note how you feel after.

You might remember how you felt when you were a kid when you tried to do something you’ve always wanted to do, but someone stopped you and said you couldn’t do it.

By practicing self-awareness, you can recognize when you have limiting beliefs and replace them with new ones such as, “I can do it.” 

2. Practice self-love

Practicing the art of self-love can radically change your life. The modern world is busy, yes, but that’s what makes it even more necessary to dedicate time to taking care of yourself.

The best way to do this is by creating self-care rituals. This ensures that every day, you learn to love yourself more. Eventually, this will help you create more supportive beliefs.

In your new relationship with yourself, you can reframe your self-worth too, “I love myself unconditionally.” 

3. Create your own dream

Society often provides us with false dreams. So often, we assume missions and roles to fit in rather than stand out. We might become a doctor, an engineer, or an artist not because it’s something we value, but because we think it’s something others will value.

But even dreams that are solely for yourself, that are not about impressing other people, deserve to be realized. If you’ve always wanted to explore music, coding, acting, or writing, then you can create a plan. This will help you realize it a little more every day.

Soon, you’ll feel empowered to no longer follow those limiting beliefs.
