What You Need to Know About Limiting Beliefs

“What kinds of limiting beliefs do you have that are holding you back?” This is a very good question. I am often asked this question by those who are frustrated with their own lack of success and happiness in life. The answer to this question may surprise you. Most people have at least one or two limiting beliefs and most have at least one “large” limiting belief which is mostly denial. Here’s what happens when you allow limiting beliefs to control your life:

o You keep doing what you are doing and convince yourself it’s the right thing to do. o You convince yourself that you won’t ever change, so you keep trying it and things will work out fine. o You allow fear of failure and rejection to get in the way and you keep trying again, only to do even more of what you’ve been doing before. o You allow your limiting beliefs to prevent you from taking any action at all and you keep focusing on the problem instead of the solution.

As you can see, limiting beliefs and the result they produce, can be very devastating. People with these beliefs will often spend their lives trying to avoid pain, but never finding a solution or even realizing they have the ability to change. Many people believe strongly in the law of attraction and yet cannot seem to live up to their expectations. When you learn to embrace your own power and use your mind in ways you never thought imaginable you can reach goals you never thought possible.

It takes awareness of your limiting beliefs to realize they are holding you back and to begin changing them. You must understand that limiting beliefs come from our memories of the past and our expectations of the future. We have been conditioned by our society to think that we need to fill a certain role to achieve success. What we fail to realize is that true success comes from using our mind to take the initiative, being passionate about our actions, and using our intelligence to look for and find opportunities where others have missed them.

You can use these new abilities to change your limiting beliefs and help you reach your full potential. By developing an ability to let go of old limiting beliefs you are free to use your brain in new ways that you never before imagined. A powerful belief that most people have is that they must be successful in order to experience success. This belief keeps you stuck in a rut, not allowing yourself to move out of it. You can change this belief by choosing to act in a different way. Instead of expecting to feel successful you must take action to become successful by doing the things you never before imagined.

In conclusion, limiting beliefs like any belief can hold you back and prevent you from achieving your goals. When it comes to changing your beliefs it is a matter of choice. Regardless, of which belief you decide to adopt to make sure that you are doing what is right for yourself and not what someone else wants you to do.
