Be The Cat!
We are often unaware of our limiting beliefs because they were “passed down” to us by the attitudes and beliefs of others. As long as they remain unconscious (we are not aware of them) they can hold us back from achieving our fullest potential and experiencing joy. For example, if we have heard all of our life that money is the root of evil then we may consciously create situations that limit our financial success out of fear of that evil.
These beliefs are so “normal” that we rarely question their validity or consider how they affect our belief systems or make us unhappy. Of course, there is some truth and a good intention behind most of them, but consider which ones you have been conditioned to believe and how they have impacted your beliefs and your life.
“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”
Good Intention: be intelligent with how you spend your money
Conditioned fear: money scarcity; feeling there is not enough
Potential Limits: not believing you can have what you want if it involves having money and therefore not going for it.
“You have to pay your your dues”
Good Intention: it takes effort to get results
Conditioned fear: you will have to suffer in order to be worthy of any pay off
Potential Limits: feeling unworthy, you may not take opportunities or you may punish yourself for rewards and accomplishments you receive with ease
Can you think of one that applies to you?
Stay tuned and we’ll learn how to turn these beliefs around.
