Good morning, let’s go.
Create your own superstitions about life.
The preachers, the teachers, the philosophers only have authority because people believe them. Some of them say and believe outlandish things. They speak with authority because they have self-belief. They know how to say what you like. They know how to imagine an enemy at the gates. They know that reassurance doesn’t need to be backed up if they say “Everything happens for a reason” You have the same power they do. You are your primary Preacher, Teacher, and Philosopher. You have the power to think and reason, to imagine and project, to believe and act.
When you believe it
Creating your own superstition is as simple as believing your lucky. It is as confidence building as believing you are one with everyone, and have no fear. It is as rewarding as believing no matter what happens or how bad things may seem, it will turn out for your good. It is believing that doing good is not only good for you and selfless, but good for your future self, with some kind of future benefit or reward.
Action follows belief
To do is based on what you believe. If you believe working hard equals success, you will work hard. That doesn’t mean you will be successful. But if you believe taking every opportunity you can will make you successful, you are probably on the right track. If you believe- then you will act. If you believe staying still is death, then you will move. If you believe diet and exercise are key to being happy and fit, then you will diet and exercise. If you believe you are incapable of dieting and exercise, you will act to prove- even inaction is a form of action. If you believe saving is important, then you will save. BELIEVE in yourself and you will do things that you haven’t done before.
To believe is human, to choose our beliefs is divine.Nino Olson
Don’t let anyone fool you, we choose our beliefs. They spend a lot of time pushing them into our heads, so we believe what they think is right. The choice to believe something is based on willpower.

P.S. This isn’t pointed at anyone belief system, religion, faith, or group- It is in my opinion true of them all.
