Our beliefs about what is possible limit our lives for we never attempt that which we do not believe we can do or that we do not believe has a good chance of success.
– Identify a limiting belief that you wish to change.
– Pick a counter belief you would like to have instead.
– Think through how the belief came into existence, why you hold that belief, why you think it is true.
– Re-frame your limiting belief and/or come up with alternate explanations for the “facts” that support limiting belief. Create an internal vision of the new you acting in new ways.
– Gather evidence to support your new empowering belief, take small steps toward your new belief, celebrate micro victories, re-calibrate as necessary, and then build, build, build.
See yourself in your mind’s eye acting, living in new empowering ways, enjoining the fruits and benefits of this new found ability. Hold the vision steadfast in the forefront of your mind, dwell on it, cherish it. Resolve to be your own best friend, your own coach extraordinaire, your own cheerleader. Your potential is the Universe’s gift to you, what you do with it is your gift back; to give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift.
“Don’t Turn Excuses into an Identity: Be careful of how you label yourself: “I’m a fearful person” or “I’m weak” or “I’m not a strong person.” – Anthony Robbins
“If you accept a limiting belief then it will become a truth for you.” – Louise Hay
