Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs are those thoughts that stop us from doing or achieving what we really want too. We all have them. But to really succeed, we need to learn how to reduce the amount of limiting beliefs that we have.

If we don’t, every time we try to do something, these limiting beliefs are going to prevent us from doing anything.

What are you limiting beliefs?

  • I know I will fail.
  • I don’t know how.
  • It’s too hard.
  • I don’t have the money.
  • There’s already something like this.
  • Too many other people are doing the same thing.
  • Nobody would buy this.
  • People won’t understand.

By having limiting beliefs, we constantly fill our minds with negative self-talk and doubt. From this, we never get started on what we want to do and this is where so many dreams and visions fail to ever happen.

It takes practice to overcome limiting beliefs.

It starts with being focused and committed to what you want. Then it’s about getting started as soon as possible. The longer you leave it, the more chances you’ll talk yourself out of it because of your limiting beliefs.

You also need to know what your limiting beliefs are and you can only do this by being really honest with yourself. Once you know what they are, you need to work out how you can overcome each of them individually.

Is it through a mindset change?

Is it through learning something so you better understand it?

Is it through talking to someone and getting advice?

Is it through doing something else first so you have more confidence?

There are a lot of things that you could do, but it comes down to what your limiting beliefs are and what will work for you to overcome them.
