Self-limiting beliefs are the biggest inhibitors to your success in life. They are the self-fulfilling prophecy that tells you that you are never going to achieve your goals because you don’t have the right skills, or you are too old, or you are just not cut out for it. These are all self-fulfilling statements and they are very harmful. In fact they are self-perpetuating because if you believe them too often, you will no longer believe for just a moment that you can achieve your goals. So start believing in yourself again.
The first step is to replace your old limiting beliefs with new beliefs that promote change. The first step is to find something that you are passionate about and that will help you grow and expand. Once you discover what it is that you want to do, you need to decide that you are going to do everything that you need to do in order to make it happen. If you do this successfully, and you stick with it, then you have just found yourself eliminating self-limiting beliefs about yourself that have caused you so much pain and so much frustration.
This process is also a form of resistance to any more self-limiting beliefs about yourself that you may hold. Once you have replaced those negative beliefs with new beliefs you will be surprised how quickly your frustration will melt away. There is nothing like the feeling of absolute freedom from having these beliefs about yourself that you have held for so long. I am here to give you some advice on how to remove self-limiting beliefs.
One way that we can eliminate our self-limiting beliefs is to identify an overwhelming emotion that we are feeling inside of us at the moment. For example, my biggest problem has been with my faith. I thought that when I became a little less religious I would no longer have a problem with being successful. What I discovered is that when I became more religious I had to suppress parts of myself that I was not happy with, and I still have trouble with today.
The best way for me to remove my self limiting beliefs has been to listen to the subliminal tapes that I have found that have helped me tremendously in learning how to deal with my feelings and in handling the various situations that I come across in my life. When I listen to these tapes, I am able to focus on the emotions that I am having rather than the situation that I am in. For example, if I am having an emotional attack I know that I am having an emotional attack, but I will not label it or think that it is something wrong. Instead I will hear the tape and focus on the feeling that I am having and then replace that feeling with another one. Over time I will be able to listen to the tape over again until I have learned how to eliminate all of my self limiting beliefs.
You might be saying to yourself that this process is too easy, but believe me when I tell you that it is not. In order for these subliminal tapes to work on you they must be listened to every day. If you try and only listen to one tape at a time you will not succeed, and you will not make any real progress. What happens is that your mind begins to believe that you already feel the way that you do, and all you have to do is change the tape or change the words that are used in order to convince yourself that this is the only way that you will be successful or happy. This is where most people fail when they try and force themselves into believing that they are better than what they currently are.
What we must also realize is that many times our self-limiting beliefs are actually self-protecting mechanisms that were put into place by our parents or other significant people in our lives. If you listen to the tape you will hear the voice of someone that has suffered abuse, and if you listen to this tape and repeat the beliefs that you hear you can create the same conditions that are causing your current problems. I am telling you from experience that it is not good enough to believe that you are good enough, you have got to learn how to become great. When you have created this belief, your problems will continue to haunt you unless you eliminate the negative energy that is associated with it.
It is time for you to free yourself from your self-limiting beliefs and get rid of your self-defeating self. You will never achieve anything if you continue to live with self-limiting beliefs, and you need to take action now before it is too late. This is the most important step because the sooner you begin your journey to becoming successful the sooner you will achieve your goals. This process is not hard to do, but it is a process that needs your attention. The mind is a powerful thing and it can be swayed by just a little bit of convincing. Once you have decided to do what it takes to free yourself from these self-defeating self-limiting beliefs, then you are ready to begin the journey towards success.
