Limiting beliefs are beliefs about yourself that hold you back from from doing what you want to do. In this blog post I share with you ways you can identify and expel limiting mindsets. Many entrepreneurs struggle with the impostor syndrome, holding them back from living the life of their dreams.
If you ever struggled with limiting beliefs and realize they are the culprits that keep you from stepping out into your “zone of genius“, then you will want to implement these action steps today.
Start with understanding what a limiting mindset is.
The human mind has an amazing ability to come up with infinite reasons why you can’t do something. There is a good chance you have limiting beliefs stopping you right now and you don’t even realize it.
Limiting beliefs come in a variety of shapes and forms.
The very familiar one is our THOUGHT PATTERNS.
It could be any negative recurring thought that stops you. Regardless of what the specific thought it, this type of negative thinking will hold you back from achieving your goals.
To eliminate them, you first need to identify them.
You can dispel these negative beliefs by calling them out and telling yourself they’re not true.
Each of us has a different set of recurring negative thoughts.
What are yours?
Simply realizing when this is happening is a great first step for combating them.
How I call out my limiting beliefs is by starting to filter through TRUTH and LIES.
By knowing who you are, what you are capable of and what you have already accomplished, will help you discern the lies you tell about yourself.
Use these steps to help you practice calling out your limiting beliefs:
How do you tell yourself a belief isn’t true?
A great way is to use examples.
Limiting beliefs are a habit of the mind.
You can create new habits through positive affirmations.
Instead of repeating to yourself that you can’t do it, tell yourself you can.
If you suffer from a fear of success, tell yourself,
“I am successful. I will succeed and this will help and inspire others.”
If you’re not good at something, tell yourself,
“I am learning this, and I can master it just like any other skill.”
The growth mindset is a way of thinking that helps you re-frame negative thoughts like these into positive ones.
It asserts that we aren’t static and fixed but change and grow over time.
This can be applied to any area of your business and teaches you to defeat the “inner critic” that tells you that you can’t do something.
It can help you see things in a positive light by going back to the “why” that lies behind your current efforts.
Reconnect with your original vision and goals.
Where would you like to be next year? See how far you’ve come and use this to fight back negative thinking. The importance of self reflection is often neglected by entrepreneurs.
Self reflection is a great tool to combat negative thinking and it helps to adapt a growth mindset. As anything in life, practice makes perfect. Learn how to succeed by succeeding.
The reward of what you try is well worth the risk.
The worst that can happen is that you make a mistake.
But a mistake is a great learning experience.
If you grasp this, you can defeat the inner critic’s limiting beliefs and take action.
If you could partner with someone that can help you to overcome your limiting beliefs, would you invest in such a partnership?
