Why do some people have a lot of money, while others have very little? Is it genetics or does something else cause this difference? Self limiting beliefs about yourself can make you feel like you don’t deserve the things you want in life. Here are 4 self-limiting beliefs that hold you back from achieving your goals.
General Self Limiting Beliefs About Yourself: You must work (hard) for money. Rich people aren’t greedy, lazy/unhealthy/ etc. rich people have money. Therefore, money causes arguments over who has more, who is “more valuable”, who needs it more and so on. You must learn to think new beliefs that help you succeed.
You are not worthy of success: This is one of the most common self-limiting beliefs and is the most detrimental. You must believe that you are worthy of success or you won’t be able to achieve it. It doesn’t matter if you think you’re worthless. You will still have the same results as someone else who believes differently. Instead of focusing on the negatives of your beliefs, focus on the positives so you can change them.
You’re too smart for your own good: Everyone is smart enough to succeed. If you think you are too smart for your own good, you will never achieve the things you want to. Self limiting beliefs like this also hold you back from achieving great relationships with other people. Instead of focusing on how bad people think of you, challenge your self-limiting beliefs by making others prove that you are not good enough.
You don’t deserve love: Self-limiting beliefs about love often hold people back from being happy and having a fulfilling life.

Once you understand the reasons you are holding yourself back, you can change them accordingly.
