How we manage our limiting beliefs will have profound implications in our development.
When was the last time you heard yourself say “I won’t be able to do this”, or “I don’t think I’ll be able to manage”? In my case it was yesterday, and most likely the day before that as well. Everyone without exception experiences limiting beliefs – it’s part of being human.
How we manage those limiting beliefs has profound implications on our development as professionals, parents, partners and almost every role we engage with in life. If you have been entertaining a specific limiting belief that has been holding you back for quite some time, there is a simple yet very effective 4-step process for how to turn things around for yourself.
Step 1: – Awareness – Identify the limiting beliefs that are holding you back (I’m not good enough to accomplish X, I’m not smart enough to become Y, etc.).
Step 2. – Reflection – Ask yourself the following questions: What would I be without this belief? Who could I become without this belief? What is the opposite experience of this belief?
Step 3. – Affirmation – Inspired by the energy of your deep reflection, write down your new positive belief (I am good enough to accomplish X, I am smart enough to become Y, etc.).
Step 4. – Recall – Every time your limiting belief decides to crop up in your mind, counter that thought with your new positive belief by saying it out loud. This action will reinforce the neural pathway in your brain that supports the new positive belief.
Simple, powerful, and evidence-based. Give it a go and become the person you aspire to be.
Always at the service of your wellbeing,
