How can attitudes and beliefs affect well-being?

William B. Salt II., MD
Gastroenterology
Attitudes and beliefs have everything to do with how you experience life, both in difficult and in joyous times. Attitudes and beliefs, like seeds buried in the deep earth, give rise to trees that bear fruit. Your positive beliefs bear the fruit of greater love, compassion and health. Your negative beliefs bear the fruit of fear, isolation and illness. Positive attitudes empower you to focus on the blessings in your daily life and to enjoy a measure of happiness that you might otherwise overlook if you focus only on the difficulties in your life.
