Self-limiting beliefs are very common and hold us back from the success we really want. These are subconscious beliefs that are affecting your thoughts and actions on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many people continue to carry these limiting beliefs into adulthood and even into marriage. People who have them tend to feel trapped in their own bodies and not achieve the level of success they’re really capable of.
The worst of them are these three: First, you have a deep, subconscious belief that you are never good enough, smart enough, or successful enough. Second, you have a deep, subconscious belief that it will take an extremely long time to get to where you want to be. Third, you have a deep, subconscious belief that you only deserve what you already have. These three self limiting beliefs can keep you from succeeding at anything you truly desire.
You have the power, so use it! First of all, change your self-limiting beliefs to new beliefs about yourself. That’s right, there is no such thing as not being good enough, smart enough, or successful enough. You are worthy of all of the things you desire. Every person born into this world has the ability to be whatever they want to be.
So, develop new beliefs that make you believe you have that power and ability. And once you start believing that you have this amazing potential and that you can reach great heights in life, you will find that you become motivated to make positive changes within your life. And you will begin developing the success you’ve always wanted.
Step One: In learning how to manage your own self limiting beliefs, the most important step is to develop a daily journal. Record everything you do in your journal, in your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Use this daily journaling process to take a look at your own behaviors, your reactions to situations, and your actions to overcome your self-limiting beliefs.
Second step: When you discover which of your self-limiting beliefs keeps you from achieving your goals, write these beliefs down on paper. Start with one belief and write down its effects on your daily life. For example, if your belief is that you are not talented enough, then write down the reasons why this belief keeps you from achieving success in different ways. It could be because you don’t have the good looks, the money, the personality, the skills, the or other many reasons.
Third step: To continue developing your new beliefs, you have two more choices. Either remove the belief entirely, or replace it with a more realistic and healthy one. For instance, instead of thinking that you are not smart enough to be successful, replace it with the statement that you are smart enough to be successful. A similar self-limiting belief is that I am not good enough to be successful. In order to overcome this belief you have two options.
You can either deny the fact that you have self-limiting beliefs, or you can find out how to change them. Of course, changing them won’t happen overnight, but as you keep doing this process you will eventually make your life much better than it is right now. So what are you waiting for? Take the first step today.
Before I forget, the third step on the road to success is having a lot of good enough money. Again, this may take some time, but eventually you’ll have it. The most important part of this third step is having enough money to make it through each and every day without financial problems. Self limiting beliefs about money are very common, and you’d be surprised how many people fall into them.
So what are your new beliefs? You’ve heard them before, from people who feel bad about themselves because they don’t have enough money. You can also hear it from yourself. So start replacing those limiting beliefs with the ones I just gave you, that mean you will be good enough to achieve your goals, smart enough to achieve your goals, have money enough to enjoy life, have a good relationship, have a fulfilling life, have a supportive network, have a career, be successful, and live the life you want to live.
When you replace your self-limiting beliefs with these new beliefs, you’ll start to see results in other areas of your life. Once you find another self-limiting belief and replace it with another one, and then another, until you’ve replaced all your limiting beliefs with new beliefs. If you keep at it, you’ll soon be happier, healthier, more fulfilled, and finally reach your goals. Don’t give up, and don’t settle.
