Limiting beliefs are beliefs that stop you from certain things. In this website limiting beliefs are beliefs that stop you from achieving success.
Main hurdle on the way to success
I am starting to believe(?!) that limiting beliefs are one of the major hurdles or maybe the most important hurdle towards success. It seems that in the end everything boils down to what you believe, nothing else. And the weird thing is that we create or have created our beliefs. We believe something because something happened and had a specific effect or result. Belief is our interpretation of something like cause and effect. And beliefs can be true or false, and even that I don’t believe(?!) anymore, as I am starting to believe(?!) that belief is even subjective.
And wow, the longer I, Guus, am working on this website, and yes, for now it is still I as I think i wrote practically all of the text, everything around the subject ends up in philosophy and religious type things.
My (limiting) beliefs
I already wrote some things about limiting beliefs and even published an exercise to overcome them, but the longer I am working on this site, on the subject of success, of inspiration for success, the weirder a human’s belief system seems to be. One of the weirdest things I am experiencing at the moment is that I indeed believe that literally anything is possible in life. And recently i also found out exactly what i want in life. So based on those two beliefs I should just ‘go and get it’. The strange thing is I don’t. And believe me, what I want and believe I can get is really important to me. And still, I’m not really moving, I’m kind of waiting.
Strange, isn’t it? So really something to look into, and I’m thinking to make some kind of exercise for it and let you join me in the journey.
So how about you? Do you know what you want? Yes, then you can join me in my journey finding the reason I’m kind of waiting, not taking action. No, then better first know and figure out what you want. So we need also an exercise for that I guess.
Your limiting beliefs
So what are your limiting beliefs?
Very common ones are:
- I am not good enough.
- Mistakes are bad.
- Change is difficult.
- I’m inadequate.
- I’m not worthy.
- Nothing I do is good enough.
I found the work of Morty Lefkoe very inspiring and helpful. Just go to Recreate Your Life, and yes, that link has an affiliate code, so we could get commission from that, but the link is only here because I like the stuff I saw. An alert box will show up giving you access to a free video, so you can check for yourself.
