A belief is a claim that is accepted as true, which then becomes a rule of action.
A claim not acted on is not believed.
Belief requires that the claim becomes a rule of action. Not becoming a rule of action is sufficient proof that the claim is not believed.
It is amazing how many people get this wrong.
Have you ever heard someone say that what you believe doesn’t matter? They could not be more wrong.
All you do is based on what you believe, whether conscious of this belief or not. Unconscious beliefs are called assumptions.
