Limiting beliefs can be the single greatest obstacle we face in life. It has the power to stop us from experiencing things that would have brought us joy and happiness if we had not held them inside of us. It is our very own personal Bermuda Island where we travel every day. If we are not careful, it can buffet us in all directions and we may never feel like flying. The good news is that it’s possible to take the principles of this area of our lives and apply them to the way that you live your life, so that you are happier, healthier and ultimately successful in everything that you do.
Self-limiting beliefs are little more than self-serving opinions, ideas or concepts that you believe are the whole truth. In many instances, self-limiting beliefs are self-serving because they serve an interest that benefits you at the expense of someone else. For example, if you have a self-limiting belief that success means becoming rich and famous then you will only attract people who understand and admire you to your business. You may also attract people who think you’re too old to be successful if you have a self-limiting belief that there are no younger siblings. It is important to remember that everyone has a unique perspective on success, wealth and happiness, and that each person has the ability to choose which limiting beliefs to hold and which to discard.
One of the most common areas where limiting beliefs manifest themselves is in relationships. It is natural for adults to hold these types of thoughts and often to hope that these faulty beliefs will go away. However, all too often, they just don’t. They hold on to these outdated and insecure ideas and live each day in pain and anguish over the love they cannot find or feel for themselves or others. If you are like most people who suffer from these outdated and insecure beliefs you know that your life is full of unhappy feelings that have nothing to do with who you are as a person.
The next time you are reading self-help books or watching a therapist to talk about how to build a positive self-esteem you should ask them if they have any suggestions for you regarding limiting beliefs. Often times these therapists will have a family system of beliefs that can be implemented as a template for your personal development and that can help you get past your own personal problems. By learning how different family systems work you can begin to understand how your own personal belief system works and how it can be corrected. For example, there are family systems that value the “law of attraction” while there are those who look at it as something that can be forced. Each family system has their own way of looking at success and happiness, so if you have a limiting belief that wealth will bring me wealth instead of finding my own inner happiness through making money, you can work on replacing that belief with a new one that tells you that loving yourself and being happy is the true path to happiness.
