Copy These Ways to Overcome Your Limiting Beliefs
We all hold limiting beliefs, and whether you know it or not, these limiting beliefs that you hold reduce your success and ability to live a full and happy life.
Many of these limiting beliefs are formed in childhood and are based on what we’ve been told about ourselves and the world in general. We staqrt telling ourselves what we have heard.
If you find that there are specific areas in your life in which you aren’t getting what you want, it may be because of your limiting beliefs. Here are three strategies to help you overcome your limiting beliefs and replace them with empowering beliefs. Others have used these methods with great success. You can copy them.
The only way you can begin to overcome your limiting beliefs is to identify them. One way you can see the beliefs that are holding you back is by journaling. You need to find time every day to sit down and write about your current situation.
Maybe you’ve heard about morning pages fromThe Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. This technique helps you think about how you got to this point in your life. Journaling helps you discover your limiting beliefs, which is the first step to overcoming them.
Observe Others, then Copy the Good Stuff
A great way to overcome your negative beliefs is to observe the behavior of others. This can serve two purposes. First, it can help you uncover the ideas you have about yourself. Ask yourself if you are like what you see.
You may become aware of triggers you have. Noticing specific reactions and behaviors within ourselves can be hard.
Secondly, when you watch others who are currently succeeding in an area of life that you’re doing poorly in, look closely. You can start to uncover the beliefs they hold that lead them to achieve success in that area of life. You can then begin to adopt these beliefs in your own life.
Be Your Own Mentor by Visualization
Another technique you can use to overcome your limiting beliefs is to become your own mentor. Pretend that you are sitting across from your future self. Not only are the kind and wise, but they’ve achieved everything that you wanted in your life.
Have a conversation with your future self and tell them about the areas in your life where you’re currently having trouble. Ask them to help you uncover your limiting beliefs, discover how you formed your limiting beliefs, how to interpret the situation differently, and help you come up with a new set of beliefs.
The next time that you find yourself being held back because of your limiting beliefs continue to tell yourself that it’s only in your head. Use the above strategies to overcome your limiting beliefs and live your best life.
Seeking the Higher Power
And last, and perhaps the best, recognize there is a higher power than just you. It could be thought of as your higher self. This is what is behind the visualization above. The Inner Mentor is a manifestation of a Higher Power that wishes you well. Accept it and strengthen your faith.
