General Limiting Beliefs about yourself can lead to serious consequences down the line. Your ability to think critically, experience emotions, trust people, be honest, be kind, be honest, learn from your mistakes, develop patience, and build capabilities and talents are severely limited because of limiting beliefs that you have developed over time. These limiting beliefs may not have come from something you did or said; they may have come from a family member, a trusted authority, a non-supportive spouse, a trusted friend, or a belief that life is predetermined and that there is nothing you can do about it.
You need to take the time to honestly examine yourself and ask yourself what you truly believe about yourself. For example, if you believe you are worthless then you have developed self-limiting beliefs that must be changed. When you change these beliefs you will experience new empowering feelings as a result. When your new belief comes into play, you will be able to apply your new beliefs to experience amazing results.
If your new belief about yourself is that you are valuable and can be of value to someone then you need to make that belief a central part of your daily life. This can be done by setting aside time each day to focus on and practice this new belief. You can also add this new belief to your self-talk and eventually it will become a habitual belief.
Another example of self-limiting beliefs are those related to feelings. Most of us have had an emotion that we have held onto for a long time such as fear, anger, sadness, or happiness. Unfortunately, these emotions are not as transient as they seem. They are actually rooted in core beliefs, which can make them very hard to remove once they are firmly entrenched in your mind.
For some people these core beliefs about themselves are so strong that they feel that they must be smart enough or else they would experience the same emotional problems that they are experiencing. These self-limiting beliefs are actually very hard to get rid of because they are generally based on what you have been taught about how the world works. In other words, if you are smart enough you know that you are not a victim. On the other hand if you are not smart enough you know that you are a victim and therefore this belief makes sense to you.
Fortunately, there are some very good reasons why you do not need to continue to believe that you are a victim. In most cases you do not need to continue teaching yourself that you are not smart enough or that you are a victim because you are not. There are two reasons why this belief is important to you and keeping it up will hurt you. First, by constantly believing that you are a victim and that you do not deserve things you will keep you from doing the things that you want to in life. Second, if you are smart enough to realize that you do not need to keep self-limiting beliefs and that you are in control of your life then you will not have any need for them.
You can help yourself by taking the time to write down your thoughts and your feelings on a daily basis. After a while, when you notice that you are holding yourself back from pursuing your goals you can take the time to go out and start Journaling. This is where you turn in your journal every single day for at least a week and write down your thoughts and feelings on a daily basis. You can then begin to work on breaking through the self-limiting beliefs that are stopping you from achieving your dreams.
You may notice that as you begin to journal the more your subconscious mind starts to believe that you are a victim. This is a good thing because it makes you feel like you are working to improve yourself and become a better person. If you were to let these limiting beliefs affect you negatively, you would feel like you were becoming worse. This is why you need to continue to push yourself forward no matter how hard it is. Over time you will get to the point where you will be able to totally remove the subconscious limiting belief that you are holding yourself to. As you do this you will then notice that you have gained a new level of confidence.
