Beliefs Are Helpful But Not True
Play • 1 hr 15 min

We are the way we are because of what we’ve experienced. We choose our beliefs, consciously or subconsciously, to make sense of the world and to create an identity. Once you understand that, you will have so much more control over what you choose to believe. Today, we start with a quote by CD Baby founder, author, and entrepreneur Derek Sivers that stood out to Sarah at a recent Genius Network event, which forms the topic for today’s conversation: beliefs are helpful but not true. For some, the idea that there is no universal truth can be a scary one but, tuning in, you’ll discover that there is value in finding the excitement and endless possibility in uncertainty! We touch on the validity of staying informed at all costs and unpack an Instagram post by emotional alchemist, Xavier Dagba, which delves into the practice of vibrational precision and peace consciousness rather than war consciousness. We also share our perspectives on embracing the unknown, affecting change with authenticity, and the incredible power of joy, plus so much more! We hope you’ll join us for this impactful conversation.
