One Way To Change Your Beliefs

Somebody lets you down in some way badly. How do you feel and respond? If you have a negative emotional reaction and behave negatively then you have learnt the first lesson – that there is a link between an adverse event, which you have no control over, and your reaction, which you do have control over. The next lesson is to appreciate each and every one of these types of interactions because they are there to teach you something and that is to practice countering your innate beliefs.
