In all probability, you are using just a fraction of your potential. In this brief post, I’ll explain why!
It starts with exploring our fake, self limiting beliefs.
There are so many gifted people out there, capable of great things; only they wrongly believe that greatness is beyond them. In many cases, the only obstacle between them and massive success, are the self-limiting beliefs they have. Because they don’t believe they are able to do something, they don’t even try.
If you believe something to be true, it becomes true for you (your truth.) For instance, if you truly believe that you will lose your home and go broke if you start a business, you won’t even try; even though you may have been capable of building a business worth millions. The belief, rather than the reality, stops you from getting started.
Self limiting beliefs can be removed
If you believe that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”, you will stop learning once you become old (whenever that is?) I used to think people who were 25 were old (when I was 15.) That would have been a severe limitation and one that was completely groundless. I know one lady who changed her whole outlook on life, at the age of 65. I know a guy, who started to learn karate at the age of 70.
Who said YOU can’t?
One of the things we all need to learn about ourselves, is how to separate our genuine limitations from our fake, self imposed limitations. Look at what you believe you can’t do and check the source of that belief. For example, if you believe you can’t dance, who said so? Was it a qualified dance instructor, who has seen how well you can dance after professional tuition, or are you basing that belief on the feedback you got, the last time you danced in public?
Think about the things you want to achieve and then examine the beliefs that are stopping you. If they are fake, self imposed limitations, then get the help you need and get started! In most cases, you will be amazed at just what you are capable of.
