Find, Identify and Kill Those Self-Limiting Belief

Transform your thoughts

By Annette Young

Do you feel that life is unfair and that you never get your chance to shine? Maybe, something within is holding you back.

Do you spend your time wondering when ‘your time’ will come? Does hope keep you going every day while you cling onto the possibility that one day your luck will change and you’ll be really happy? We can all kid ourselves that fate will one day give us our big break and it will arrive gift-wrapped but let’s cut to the chase. The only way you will achieve your true potential in life is to stop ‘hoping’ and instead, face up to any self-limiting beliefs that may be preventing you from achieving. Beliefs are really powerful and if yours have a stranglehold on your life, it makes sense to really think about what you want and what’s stopping you from achieving.

Is it time to face up to any inner fears?

There’s little point emulating others who may be successful, when you need to define your own dreams and deliver. It is fine to consider their work remit or to understand what makes them successful. But it’s important to find your own way in life and to embrace each and every moment, making them count.

How many times have you stood on the threshold of success or faced a wonderful new opportunity and thought, ‘I can’t do this?’ Feelings of inadequacy if left unchecked can overpower your life and soon, you’ll find you do much less in life but worry a whole lot more. To be able to really make significant changes, to embrace the successes in life that you deserve, you need to discover what niggling little doubts are holding you back.

• Has anyone ever told you will never account to anything?
• Do you tell yourself you are not clever or capable enough to achieve anything?

Self-limiting beliefs are destructive. They are powerful and they need to be changed otherwise, your life will remain just as it is right now. That’s fine if you don’t need anything more in life or are really happy as you are right now. But if not, you just have to decide that change is the only option.

Often, any negative beliefs begin when we are young, so it’s important to think back to times when you were made to feel inadequate. Find any deeply rooted reason for your inability to fire up your life and success and you can then work on changing these beliefs. We all face rejections, we all face losses. Some people clamber with resolve over obstacles, others give up at the first hurdle.

Which one are you?

Awareness forms a powerful starting point for change. Think, right now, right this second. You can say yes to change. It’s not your fault if you have doubts caused through the actions of others, but it is your fault if you let your rut engulf you. Make a difference. Start today.
