For most people who have limiting beliefs there is a need to make changes in their thinking patterns and in their thinking. Unfortunately, most people do not know how to go about changing these beliefs and it often leads to resistance and the avoidance of change. You are not alone. There are many people who suffer from the same problem. You should read on for some helpful suggestions.
How many limiting beliefs do you have that says, “I can not have enough money”? Or “If I am not careful I may get rejected?” The only thing that is keeping you from having what you wish for is your own story that you continue to tell yourself. These are also called self-limiting beliefs.
These types of beliefs usually stem from common limiting beliefs that we may have had when we were young. For example, you may believe that you cannot have a certain job because your parents could not afford it. Or, you may think that if you try hard enough, you will never be able to make it big in your business. These are all self-limiting beliefs and they need to be changed.
To start with you need to identify which of these self-limiting beliefs is holding you back. Once you have identified one, question yourself whether it really is a limiting belief. If it is, then it needs to be changed. You can easily do this by focusing on what it is that you would have to offer a new employer if you were hired for this job. You can begin to ask yourself questions like: Am I the right person for this job?
Another way to challenge your self-limiting beliefs is to make an honest commitment to do whatever it takes to get this new position. As you begin to do the things that you know you need to do to turn this belief around, you will find that your confidence and happiness will skyrocket. Making a commitment to change your negative self-beliefs to positive ones is one of the best ways to overcome any obstacle.
The final step is to make a decision that you are going to follow through with your commitment to change your limiting beliefs no matter what it takes. By deciding to do something regardless of the obstacles that you may face, you will be much more likely to succeed. Remember, you are the only one standing between yourself and your goal. By using the power of visualization you can create a new reality where you are the only one standing between failure and success.
Once you have made the commitment to change your limiting beliefs, you need to find a way to support your new ideas. You can do this by making yourself available to others who may have similar beliefs as you. You can also use books, videos, or other resources to support the idea of having new ideas. People who already have similar beliefs are usually very open to hearing new ideas and helping to spread the word about an idea that someone has not yet heard about.
After you have decided to place a new belief in place, you need to make sure that you reinforce that belief each and every time you enter into a situation that requires your belief. For example, if you believe that you only have so many dollars, never allow yourself to reach beyond that amount. If you have a limiting belief that you only have so much money, you will never be able to use your imagination. Remind yourself often that you can do anything if you really want to. Using affirmations and visualization techniques to reinforce your new beliefs is one of the most powerful and efficient ways to defeat the limiting beliefs that are keeping you from reaching your goals.
