Day #096: Belief & Limits

It is not who you are that holds you back, it’s the belief of who you think you’re not.
What are you believing?

Do you believe in yourself?

Do you believe you can do it?

Do you believe you are good enough?

Beliefs create maps that guide us towards our dreams and goals. They give us the ability to take action.

The problem is – our beliefs overpower our ability to construct and actually fulfill our goals and dreams.

Why? Because we don’t even believe we are capable of doing something.
We limit ourselves before even trying, we limit ourselves as being something not good enough or not this or that.

Let me remind you that you will never be someone else, you will only ever be you. That’s the way it should be.
So wake up and realize who you are and embrace the person you are, but this doesn’t mean you can’t be a better person than you are. 
You can aspire to be like others and follow their footsteps and lifestyles but do it as your own.

Our limiting beliefs can cause us to miss out on the things that we want most and our empowering beliefs can drive us toward to the life we want to live. – Tony Robbins 

What is a goal that you have always wanted to achieve and haven’t?

Why haven’t you?

Whatever your reason, there’s always a limiting belief.

The first step to empowering beliefs is to understand the four places our beliefs come from.
If you can identify these (I recommend you take a pen and paper and start jotting down some ideas), then you will soon empower those beliefs more than ever.

Environment 
Free yourself from the idea that environments dictate who you are or what you believe.
You are free to make your own decisions in whatever environment it will be.

Events 
The day you got married. The birth of your child. That big promotion. The death of a loved one. Even terrorist attacks.
Events impact our lives profoundly causing us to form beliefs.
Can you think of an event that has impacted you in a positive or negative way?

Knowledge 
Knowledge is not power. Knowledge is potential power.
Put yourself in proximity with people who know more than you do.
Don’t base your belief purely on what others believe, but identify how and what they believe in and find out for yourself.

Past Results 
We all create beliefs around the results of past achievements or failures. But past results do not equal future results.
If you base your belief of failure, or the things that didn’t happen, you will always expect the worse.
I say screw the past and the failures – take these and step up from them and start believing you are better than these!

It is a new day and there is no better day to INSPIRE your belief than today.
You can hit the nail on the head today and get your head in the game by believing firstly in yourself and you abilities to do your best.
If you can do this then your week will shine. This week will be yours to own.

Only if you believe it though…
