It was once believed that earth was flat. Columbus sailed around it and proved otherwise. It was once believed man could never fly faster than speed of sound. Chuck Yeager exceeded Mach 1 in Bell X-1 and proved otherwise. It was once believed that no one could run a mile in under four minutes. Roger Bannister ran mile in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds and proved otherwise. They all achieved impossible because they were able to break through self-imposed barriers and self-limiting beliefs!
Do you hold self-limiting beliefs that are preventing you from reaching your goals? If you won’t or can’t let go of these beliefs, you’ll likely find yourself doing same old thing for years, thinking that nothing will ever change for you. Sadly, nothing ever will, unless you can shake those self-imposed limitations.
Interestingly, even though there are millions of different people with millions of different personalities, many share same negative beliefs. Do these sound familiar to you?
I Don’t Deserve It
Do you think that success and wealth are things other people deserve, but not you? Do you really think that you were created in some inferior manner compared to everyone else? That is not true. You were created just like everyone else and have same right and same potential as everyone else to achieve your goals.
It’s Not Possible
Do you feel that your goals are impossible to reach? Sailing around world, breaking 4 minute mile, and breaking sound barrier were all said to be impossible. These were limiting beliefs which were eventually changed.
It’s Too Hard/Too Much Work
Too many people today are looking to make a quick buck by doing nothing. They’ve been led to believe that they will simply fall into a gold mine and achieve wealth with little or no effort. Hey, even people who did fall into gold mines during gold rush had to do a little digging! However, it doesn’t have to be hard and it can actually be FUN to make some changes in your life.
