Getting rid of a limiting belief that you have about yourself or your abilities
I’m going to tell my story in a structural format. While I follow these five steps, I’d like you to think your limiting beliefs as well.
Name your demons
Simply, fill in the blank. “I am afraid that…” finish this sentence ten times.
The phrases that come out are your limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
“I am afraid that… I will always struggle financially.”
Face your demons
Now try to write 3-5 ‘reasons why’ you fear these things. We’re trying to dig into the core of these issues.
“I am afraid that… I will always struggle financially… because my family has been through a lot when I was young and I feel like I will probably end up like that again, and I want to avoid that pain.”
Kick your demons in the crotch
It’s time to disprove your limiting beliefs. Under each belief, jot down as many points of evidence to the contrary as you can. Think of everything in your life (no matter how big or small they may seem) that stands in contrast to your old limiting belief and make note of them.
“I don’t need to fear struggle in my financial confidence because my writing, my work can fetch me a reasonable amount.”
Write your new empowered belief
Now, this is when you should feel like a real ninja… Briefly, refer to the old belief, and then realistically and in an absolute compelling manner, state the newly empowered belief for every limiting belief.
“Although I sometimes stress about finances, I know that it is unavoidable that I will be successful in my career. Whenever I have put mind to it, I have been able to get stability with ease.”
Repeat as needed
Even though the last four steps might have given you clarity, it’s helpful to repeat this process, for beliefs are rooted deeply. It will really help you uproot your old limiting beliefs.
Believe me, there’s nothing like getting rid of an unconscious belief that has held you back for years. It’s so liberating to feel the true freedom and ease that a free mind enables you with.
