What is standing between you and your DREAMS?
Let me save you the suspense.
So get out of the way!!
And I know it’s not as straightforward as it sounds, as our limiting beliefs were mostly formed before age 7, and stored deep in our subconscious. They are running the show and we don’t even know it. Because our beliefs are our truth, whether they are true or not. Your subconscious doesn’t care..
What is a belief? It’s just someone else’s opinion you have heard over and over again when you were young. Yes. Someone’s opinion of us, of the world, of others….
Our beliefs determine if we consider something or someone to be good or bad, right or wrong, beautiful or ugly, desirable or undesirable, safe or dangerous, worthy or unworthy, or acceptable or unacceptable.
Our beliefs also dictate what we consider to be possible or achievable.
Beliefs can be empowering or limiting in nature. Limiting or negative beliefs prevent us from fulfilling our true potential, hold us back, and keep us stuck and feeling bad about ourselves.
Empowering or positive beliefs, on the other hand, allow us to act resiliently, believe in ourselves, to pick ourselves up after we fall and try again.
Yet, most people are not aware of their own beliefs because they have never taken the time to analyse them carefully.
This explains why some people thrive and succeed despite the most difficult circumstances while others fail. It all boils down to our beliefs.
And we also (subconsciously) tend to do everything possible to validate and reinforce our beliefs.
We will think, feel and act accordingly. It is like a self-fulfilling prophecy. That is how powerful our beliefs are.
For example, if we believe we are not worthy of love, even when we find the most perfect partner who loves and cherishes us, we will fund a way to sabotage that relationship .As we believe we are not lovable.
Or we will sabotage ourselves in our career, as we think we are useless and not good enough to be a success.
Now you understand why it is so important to examine our beliefs, something that most people have never done. It is also very important to identify our limiting beliefs so that we can start replacing them with empowering ones.
It will take some work, and a lot of repetition, but it is worth it in the long run.
Why would we want to live with these limiting and constraining beliefs that hold us back, make us unhappy, and prevent us from achieving our full potential? To live the life we LOVE.
