Limiting beliefs are perhaps the most insidious construction keeping you from easily and naturally getting everything you want out of life.
They are horrible for a couple of reasons. One is that they are self-imposed, yet we trick ourselves into thinking there is something “out there” that is stopping us. In order to overcome those things “out there,” we are really looking in the wrong place.
The other reason they are so debilitating is they exist on an unconscious level. They operate outside of our awareness.
The good news is twofold. One is that you can easily destroy them for good once you realize what they are.
The other is that with a pretty simple process (although it can feel like an emotional sucker punch) you can figure out what they are.
To do that, first come up with something you’d like out of life, and have been trying to get, but for some reason you aren’t there yet. Maybe you’re frustrated, maybe you feel like you’ve been banging your head against the wall. Maybe you’ve given up a couple times and have restarted with “renewed” willpower. Pick something.
Then, take out a sheet of paper. This works best if you actually take the time you write this out, longhand.
At the top of the paper, write down, “I can’t get X because…” where X is the thing you’ve been trying to get for so long.
Then just start writing. Don’t think, just write. The idea is to force your unconscious to spit out those beliefs that are keeping you from getting X, whatever it is.
The first few things you write will “sound” good, but won’t be the real reason. It’s important not to stop and think, just keep writing reasons one after another. Some might not make sense. That’s fine. Just keep writing.
What you’re looking for is something that describes your skills, or some limitation about your. Something vague, but deeply troubling. (I said this is emotionally painful!)
You’re looking for statements like, “I’m not good enough,” or, “I never succeed,” or “I’m not smart enough,” or “I’m no good at making money,” or something along those lines.
It’s got to feel like it’s the truth, and it’s got to feel like some deep dark secret you hope nobody finds out about.
The good news is that once you force these imaginary demons out into the light, they VERY EASY to kill.
I mean like squash like a bug, so they NEVER bother you again.
Just take the statement, reverse it, and repeat it to yourself with plenty of positive emotion.
Another way is with the Objection Destruction training course, which will show you about twenty different ways to flip the belief around like a pretzel, so it has no hope of surviving.
You can do this with your own beliefs, or with beliefs that you “sniff out” in others, giving everybody a much better chance of getting whatever it is they want.
