You have probably heard it a million times: “Be who you are.” “Remove your identity block.” “Be yourself.” “You are your own best friend.” We all have limiting beliefs about ourselves. Some of us believe that we can’t do something, that we’re ugly or stupid, or that we don’t deserve to be happy or to have an extraordinary life. Other people believe they’re bad at something or are just plain unlucky. But regardless of where we come from or what we think, even if we can change some of our limiting beliefs, we can still have a hard time changing our true selves. It’s okay to be who you are. And, even better, you probably already are. You’re unique. You’re beautiful. You already have everything you need. Change your limiting beliefs, and you’ll be set.
What is a limiting belief?
A limiting belief is a belief that restricts your ability to achieve something. For example, you might believe that you can’t do math or are not good enough. A limiting belief can paralyze and prevent you from achieving your goals.
Why is it so hard to change our limiting beliefs?
It’s hard to change our limiting beliefs because they’re based on our past experiences and the people’s experiences in our lives. We often hear stories about people who have changed their lives by changing their limiting beliefs. But those stories usually emphasize how hard it was, how much work and effort it took, and how successful the person was once they got started. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes, people do change their lives by changing their limiting beliefs. For example, some people have changed their belief that they can’t have a good life. They now believe that they can and have a lot to offer. And because they think this way, they can be happy and prosperous.
Similarly, some people have changed their belief that they’re bad at something. They now think that what they’re bad at is very valuable. They learn new skills and develop new businesses because of this conviction. Changing your limiting beliefs isn’t always as difficult as you might think. There are many ways to get started, and you don’t need to be very active or dedicated to the cause for it to work.
