Self limiting beliefs about yourself can limit your potential for success. How many self-limiting beliefs about yourself do you have? Your beliefs about yourself limit your success potential. It does not matter if it is about appearance or personality. Whether it is appearance or personality, a self-limiting belief about yourself will stop you from reaching your full potential in life.
First you must determine what type of “belief” that you are allowing yourself with self-limiting beliefs about yourself. The first type of limiting belief is a new belief. This is a belief that is not allowing you to achieve the results that you desire. So you must find a new belief. Here are some new beliefs to help you on your road to success.
First, you must recognize that no one can make you fail unless you allow them to. Second, you must commit yourself to changing those self-limiting beliefs about yourself. The first type of limiting beliefs is, “I can’t do this.” You must change this to, “I can do anything I want to.”
Another way you are limiting yourself is by focusing on the negative. Instead of focusing on the opportunities and obstacles that you are facing, focus on the opportunity and obstacle. For example, instead of thinking, “I am having trouble getting a new job,” you can say, “I am in a wonderful, overwhelming emotional and physical experience.” Instead of saying, “I am having a hard time getting out of bed,” you could say, “I am falling asleep quickly every night.”
The last type of self-limiting beliefs is, “If I can’t have this, then nothing else will work.” You can replace this belief with, “I have the good enough will power and ability to get what I want.” This gives you permission to take actions even when you don’t feel like it. You can focus on the outcome and not on whether you will get it or not.
It is important to challenge self-limiting beliefs on a daily basis. You must not allow yourself to believe that you are good enough. Rather, you must convince yourself that you are as good as you want to be. This takes a lot of self-discipline and courage, but if you can do it, you will find that it is the best form of happiness and personal growth. You can also use this technique with any bad habit, such as a bad habit about smoking or a habit about overeating.
When you start focusing on your ability to be good enough, you will find that other things will begin to improve. Self improvement involves taking action in the face of resistance. Self Improvement is all about finding a way of doing things that feel good. It is also about figuring out what actions make you feel smart enough and good enough. In the case of self-limiting beliefs, it means working on the beliefs that are holding you back.
When you make it a habit to challenge your self-limiting beliefs, you will be amazed at how quickly your life changes. You may not even realize that you have accomplished anything until you write down that new skill that you have acquired. You can use the Law of Attraction in order to increase your self-confidence. Once you are capable of handling just about anything, including overcoming self-limiting beliefs, you will find that life is much more fun and enjoyable.
One way to challenge your self-limiting belief is to substitute a new belief for the one that is negative for you. If you believe that you are smart enough to be able to do whatever you set your mind to, but if you also believe that you are not good enough, then those two thoughts will contradict each other. In order to change this belief, you need to replace the word “not good enough” with another word such as “smart, which gives me the ability to accomplish what I set out to do.” By forcing yourself to view something through a positive perspective, your subconscious mind will recognize the fact that you do have the ability to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.
Self limiting beliefs can also be defeated by facing them head-on and denying their existence. When you are confronted with your own cognitive distortions, you must resist the urge to use logic to convince yourself that these beliefs are false. Instead, tell yourself that they are just perceptions created by your mind and that they are not true. When you are debating these ideas with your mind, you are putting up a fight against your own cognitive distortions and preventing yourself from acting on them. The more you fight these false notions, the more they will be weakened, until they disappear entirely.
The good news is that whatever it is that you are fighting is merely a new belief you are trying to overcome. As you keep fighting this belief, you will find yourself progressively opening up to different ways of looking at the world, which in turn will enable you to act from a more positive and healthy place. If you understand the power of your own self-limiting beliefs, you can make use of these methods to strengthen your own self-esteem and take control over your life.
