We live in a different time. Information Age makes us do things we can only dreamed of. A world full of potential and time scarcity. I am prepared to take on the world. I am prepared to design my own path to self-determination for what I want for myself, my family, and my Hmong people.

10 Most Powerful Beliefs
Belief #1: I choose to believe that my life is an incredible gift. Even if the current situation or circumstances of your life aren’t what you’d ideally have now, you can creatively notice the ways you’ve been blessed.
You may need to start very small by noticing little things you’re grateful for. If you can find nothing to be grateful for, the fault only lies with you.
You can start simple and small by being grateful for your breath or that you have enough to eat. Over time, little by little, your life situation will shift. Expanding your sphere of gratitude helps you tap into the spiral effect: the better it gets, the better it gets.
Before long, you’ll wake up thinking, “Even if I could, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
Belief #2: Everyone I meet is a best friend I don’t know yet. The truth of the matter is, we’re all connected. In a very literal sense, we’re all from the same human family. We’re all bodies born from stars that die and return to the earth.
So why not act as if we are really one? Your relationships will see a new depth and richness when you act as if everyone is truly you.
Belief #3: Every 24 hours is the most important of my life. Right now you have a choice: You can let this day, this moment, be brand new, or you can wallow in the past and worry about the future.
You can make today a blessing and a gift, or your can squander it. When you choose to act as if today is an incredible opportunity to love fully and give your gifts deeply, new worlds will begin to open that you didn’t know could possibly exist.
Belief #4: Everything will turn out all right. It always does, doesn’t it? No matter how bad things might seem now, they will surely pass as they always do.
And under every challenge, every crisis, is a lesson waiting to be learned. Within chaos and compost, opportunities and flowers bloom.
Belief #5: Life is a game to be played, not a problem to be fixed. When you view all of life as a game, it feels more like play and less like a problem to be solved.
Why not view everything, even the most difficult challenges, as adventures with mysteries waiting to unfold? Life is not a problem you need to fix, it’s a game to be played to the fullest.
Belief #6: I choose to die having done my best, having given everything. We will all die one day, sooner or later. Would you rather die holding back, or having given everything and loved to your depth?
Would you rather close off, or open? Every moment is a choice. Consider how your choice feels right now.
Stop waiting for the right moment. Give your best right now, however you are moved to do so.
Belief #7: No one really cares about me as much as I think. This is incredibly liberating. The reality is that while you’re worrying about what others think about you, they’re worrying about what you think about them. It’s pretty comical, actually.
The good news is that this is a license to do more of what you want. And while doing so, you’ll liberate others to do the same.
Belief #8: It’s always okay to ask, and always okay to say no. If you’re not getting your needs met, you probably struggle with asking for what you want. That’s okay. We’re often taught growing up that we can’t always get what we want.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not okay to ask. And it’s also always okay to say no.
The more you practice asking, the richer and more fulfilled your life becomes. Don’t believe me? Try it.
Belief #9: By serving myself first, I can better serve the world. The more you take care of yourself, the greater you expand your capacity for serving others. It’s as simple as that.
And anyway, if you truly believe that the world is you, than by not serving yourself, you’re actually hurting the world. Is that what you want? Is that the kind of example you want to set?
Serving yourself isn’t selfish, it’s actually one of the deepest signs of caring for others you can show.
Belief #10: Love is always available when I choose to open my heart. Even in the most difficult challenges and heart-wrenching tragedies, love is available when we choose to open our hearts.
It’s only when we close ourselves off and shut down that we restrict the flow of love into our lives. When we choose to open, even amidst the pain, we can feel love’s flow and realize that love takes many shapes. Love can feel like grief, anger and sadness.
Whether we’re experiencing joy or loss, opening our hearts allows the fullness of love and healing to come through. When you open, even when it hurts, that’s when real growth and fullness is allowed to come forth.
My challenge to you:
What’s one belief you’d most like to try on? Relax your assumptions and experiment with trying it on for 30 days to see if it’s true for your or not.
If it doesn’t move you, at least you’ve learned something about yourself. If you never try anything new, you only risk your life.
