Believe in everything you want to believe in

what you believe is importantNobody ever got in real trouble for using their imagination, however, believing  in everything you imagine can get you in trouble.

For example:

Imagining you’ve won the lottery is good for you, while spending money like you’ve won the lottery is not so good for your bank account.

Imagining everybody you interact with only wants what’s best for you will make you think everybody is wonderful. It doesn’t matter what they really think, it’s your thoughts that count.

Imagining you’re beautiful is good for your self-esteem, expecting everybody else to agree with you can lead to disappointment unless you’re Brad Pitt or scarlett johansson.

Imagining you’re going in to work to give your boss a piece of your mind might relieve some stress, however, if you carry it out, your boss might give you your walking papers as their way of saying thanks.

Imagining your God is better than everybody else’s God is good for your belief system but you really can’t prove that either.

Believe in everything you want to believe in as long as you don’t expect other people to believe in those things too.

There is one exception:

Do not believe in anything that does not improve you.

    I gave this post some extra thought, and i think at least two more tests need to apply when choosing beliefs. Whether something improves oneself is so subjective and if someone has only one test and isn’t clearly thinking?
