Beliefs and Actions
It’s important to know what we believe because we need something to live by. If we don’t know what we believe we don’t have our own rules in life to live by. When we face difficult decisions we base our decisions on our life rules. For example some people may have a rule to never accept money for anything, they may want to make all their money by themselves. This could be a hard life rule because you could get a scholarship to college and not want to accept (even though every one probably would) because you want to earn your own way up to college. Our beliefs shape our actions because we don’t want to act a certain way that we think is wrong, even though others might believe it’s right. Our beliefs are formed on how we live our lives. They could also be formed on how our parents lived their lives and then raised us up to be the same way with some of the same beliefs.
