We all have patterns that show in our lives and color the way we perceive the world. They affect the way we see, speak, understand, hear, and feel. They color our sense of who we are, about others, and what is possible for us. They influence our actions, behaviors, and attitudes. They can keep us trapped, blaming, and in victim mode.
These patterns are hard to break free from, because they’re largely invisible, and they’re tied to our identity, so they’re like what water is to a fish. These stories we tell ourselves about who we are, and hold us back from becoming who we’re meant to be and reaching our full potential.
They’re often subconscious, and we don’t even know we have them until someone points them out to us. If we can just see how we’re creating these patterns, we can create something different!
Some of the most common limiting beliefs are:
The first step is awareness of the problem.
To create a pathway to liberate ourselves, we can look at these limiting self-concepts with curiosity. Yes, they kept us safe in the past, but now they are limiting us, and need to be transformed.
Where did the belief come from? Is it true? Would I choose this thought on purpose?
The truth is that we have unlimited potential. Success starts with this belief. The truth is that the only limitations we have in life are the ones we place on ourselves.
All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in belief.
Your beliefs become your thoughts, which eventually become your actions, which create outcomes in your life. To create transformation, we need to cultivate new skills and capacities to support us in anchoring a new belief and a new self-image.
If we want to create a life that reflects our true potential, we can cultivate new skills and capacities, create a new identity to orient around, and take actions that are consistent with this new identity. When we deeply believe that we’re capable and deserving, we’re able to tap into our true potential.
The next time you notice yourself thinking limiting beliefs, catch that thought and replace it with a more empowering belief. Believe you can change and believe you’re worth it! You’ve got this.
