As humans, we operate on some of the most complicated beliefs. These beliefs are what I like to call our underlining program. Essentially our subconscious mind is always running our program. This program can keep us happy and motivated, or it can be destructive if we let it. Limiting beliefs are just that, limiting. When we limit our thinking about something, we limit our possibilities in life.
What is a limiting belief? By definition, limiting beliefs are those which constrain us in some way. Just by believing them, we do not think, do or say the things that they inhibit. And in doing so we impoverish our lives. We may have beliefs about rights, duties, abilities, permissions and so on.
The things we tell ourselves...
What limiting beliefs do you catch yourself coming up with on a daily basis?
I can't do it.
There is not enough time.
I'll never have enough money.
I will always have anxiety.
I'll never find my soulmate.
I can't even think about what I want, because I'll never get it.
I can never get in shape; it's too difficult.
I'm just too sick.
I just can't get over my past.
I can't seem to get off the ground.
I will always have depression.
My endeavors never pan out.
Moving forward is too difficult.
I'll never be worth anything to anyone.
I will always be in debt.
It's not possible to heal.
This gets interesting when you think about how the Law of Attraction works. We can manifest something as much as we want, but if our subconscious mind has a running program that is not in line with what we are trying to manifest, it will not manifest. We need to fully feel what we want to manifest. We cannot fully feel it if that subconscious program is there and blocking it.
I have a favorite quote by Henry Ford. "Whether you think you can, or think you can't. YOU'RE RIGHT."
Working with limiting beliefs, and wiping them out will create the ability to achieve success and change your life. I say that because I am living proof, along with all of my clients. Book a session, for a life changing experience!
