Our thoughts are based on our beliefs. And we take actions based on our thoughts and beliefs.
So if we work through this backwards, it makes sense that in order to attract what we want in life, we have to think about it. And in order to think about it in a positive and productive manner, and to believe it is possible to attain/accomplish, our beliefs need to be aligned. So the starting point to manifesting what we want in our lives is our beliefs.
Perhaps that's why our beliefs tend to be our reality. What we believe to be true is our truth. A self-fulfilling prophecy if you will...
