feeling of certainty about something. As you say that you
cultivate to become a Buddha in the future, it means that you
will definitely become a Buddha in the future.
This sense of
certainty allows you to unleash the energies that enable you
to produce intelligent results, as well as the ability to
become a Buddha. You all have the answers to most things in
your own place, or at least you can find the answers you need
from others. On the contrary, if you lack confidence, lack of
certainty, you will not be able to use the abilities that are
available to you.
- Trust is
something you can build through principle: Your thoughts and
often, you will believe what the thought is repeated, no
matter what you think is true or not. And what you do is right
or not right.
- Belief is
simply believing what others say, sometimes you yourself do
not fully understand what the other person is saying and
doing, but your heart still convinces you to believe it
because you think it is the right thing to do that is true and
believable. That's all.

You can find
faith in your surroundings and faith in your life. First of
There are many
factors that influence and form a person's beliefs, in which
the surrounding environment has the greatest impact. You will
feel defeated if everything around you is just failure and
despair. It is very difficult for you to form mental images
that help you to achieve success. On the contrary, if you are
surrounded by confident, determined people, you will feel
stronger than usual, and you will have faith that you will
2- Faith in
Events, big or
small, support beliefs. In everyone's life, there are
unforgettable events. For example, a breakup in a marriage
that causes an insider to lose faith in family happiness, or a
person experiencing a business failure can make them feel less
confident in success. Here are some aspects of your life that
can give you confidence:

to acquire knowledge such as: Reading books, watching movies,
researching and learning, and experiencing real life and the

will achieve in the future. Try to imagine you will become a

that goal, the source of self-power begins to arise. Just like
that, if you do it every day, your own energy will increase,
and one day you will achieve your goal. That's why the

- Why are some
people able to achieve so much success in life?

people able to achieve extraordinary results that go beyond
what is expected?

- Do they have
better conditions than others?

distinguishes successful people from the average person is
that they have a strong belief in what they do. This belief
gave them the strength to fight bravely, and ultimately
succeed. So when you have faith, first of all:
helps you open the door to success.
When you don't
have faith, you won't be able to do what you want to do. You
can't stand in front of a crowd and talk about an issue you're
passionate about, even though there's no good reason for you
to be terrified. And you need to overcome these disadvantages
in thinking. So, when you believe something to be true, you
actually have a state of total confidence in what you think is
right. Because faith is the most powerful source of energy in
creating good things in life. On the contrary, limiting
beliefs will also make you destructive to action. Beliefs that
bring about an energetic mood will make you stronger. Beliefs
help you to tap into the richest energies hidden deep within
you, creating and directing those energies to help you achieve
your desired goals.

abilities and talents more than you. They learned about
beliefs and soon applied them to life and work. To a certain
extent, you can also do anything that other people have done,
as long as you have enthusiasm and desire to learn, and at

achieve. And above all else, your beliefs determine your

won't dare to hope let alone take action to make it happen.

potential will be realized. When you believe you can achieve a
certain goal, you will give it your all. Continuous action and
determination to do whatever is within moral and legal limits

many potentials hidden within you. Once you've reached your
potential, you think the results will reap huge rewards! And
when you achieve the desired results, your beliefs will be
further strengthened and become stronger.
