I Can Overcome Limiting Beliefs
Say this to yourself. “I can overcome limiting beliefs.” To overcome limiting beliefs will take time. The journey won’t be easy. It starts with two of the most powerful words in the English language. “I can”.
Mired In Limited Belief
Most of us have become “stuck” at some point. Mired down with a limited belief. A limited belief means your mindset tells you something isn’t possible. It might be possible for someone else. but “It’s not possible for me.” Sound familiar? You are telling yourself something similar to what I believed for a long time. Two of the most limiting words in the English language. You are saying the words, “I can’t.”
“I can’t do that, because…” That phrase is your limited belief in a nutshell. Now let’s talk about how you can overcome limiting beliefs. And yes, you can overcome them.
Do You Believe In Yourself?
Let me ask you something. This may not be easy to answer, but do you believe in yourself? Deep down in your heart of hearts. Do you believe that you deserve to at least try? Because that’s the first step. You have to want to. And want it enough to believe that you deserve it.
Believing in yourself doesn’t come all at once. However, when you start to believe in yourself, it causes a shift. When you start to believe in yourself, you begin to embrace the words “I want to.”
“I want to try, I want to succeed. Because…. I deserve to.”
I Want To
Opening up yourself to the space of “I want to…” allows for hope. Possibility starts to live, and walls come down. “I want to. I would if…”
Instead of “I can’t..” statements, which are closed and actively looking for barriers, you begin to embrace what might be possible. Changes start with imagining. “What if? I could maybe do that if….”
As you consider “I would if…” you are still defining barriers. There is still a lot of work to be done. However, your barriers are starting to be defined in a way that is seeking solutions. The next step is to find those workable solutions. Sound difficult? It really isn’t.
Define Your Solution
Here’s the trick. Allow your mind to begin seeking solutions to your “I would if…” statements. Don’t question or judge, simply allow the possible solutions room in your mind.
Perhaps your statement is, “I would if I had enough time.”
Okay, this means we are looking for solutions around having enough time. Maybe you can begin to explore some time management, hire someone to free you up from mundane tasks, something! There is always a solution. The difference is defined in your belief. Once you let go of limited beliefs, your mind will accept logical solutions.
Tip: This is a stage to be very practical and straightforward. Don’t let stinking thinking rule. Instead, open yourself wide to possibilities. Positive thinking seeks solutions. Define your solution and you are already almost there!
Say the Words “I can”
In conclusion, let’s put this all together. You now know you can. Why? Because you have a solution to the “I can’t...” statement. With limited belief mindset, “I can’t..” became your default statement. Your mind was in a closed state. But now you’ve opened your mind up to a new statement. Remember those powerful words we were talking about at the very beginning of this post.? Yes!
“I can because… (insert your solution!)”
I can do this because I now have enough time. I’ve created a solution to my barriers. I move forward. This is how you can overcome limiting beliefs.
It Wasn’t Ever About The Problem
Remember, it was never actually about the problem. It was about your mindset around the problem. Yes. It’s really that easy. Your mindset is your most powerful enemy or your strongest ally. Ultimately, you get to decide which that will be.
The cool part? Once believe you can with one thing? You will know in your heart and mind that you can do anything. You’ve got this. Because you can.
