In this episode, Jeff and Kristin discuss limiting beliefs and how they might stop you from reaching your potential. We also discuss a way to eliminate your limiting belief.

What are limiting beliefs?

A limiting belief is an internal belief you have about yourself that limits your potential and ability to dream. Unlike fears, limiting beliefs are generally focused on you and your abilities. These are the voices in your head that tell you you aren't good enough, smart enough, or worthy enough. Often, these are voices from our past and you will hear them in other people's voices. Sometimes, these voices are our own voice from the past. These moments in our life have cemented a belief about ourself, very often a negative one.

Identifying and eliminating limiting beliefs

Typically, limiting beliefs pop up when we challenge ourselves and unknowingly challenge the limiting belief we hold. Many people encountered this when taking the Dream Catcher Assessment. If this was the case for you, we challenge you to go back to the assessment. When you hear the limiting beliefs and fears, write them down. If the voice is not your own and you can identify the person who said it, write that down as well.

 

Once you have started to identify your limiting beliefs, it's time to start assessing them. Think back to when you first heard that voice. You may be able to identify the specific memory. Think about the circumstances where you or someone you know made that statement. Have you changed since that comment was made? If someone else said it, should you have taken it so deeply to heart? Process your feelings and determine if this limiting belief from your past should have so much impact on your present and future.

 

Journaling is a great way to get our thoughts down and works well for  identifying fears and limiting beliefs. We recommend that every time you write in your journal, you identify three things that you are grateful for in addition to refuting your fears and limiting beliefs.

 

Another way to eliminate your limiting beliefs is to be a continual student. Have a budget for education and learn something new, even if it is something small every day. The more you expand your mind, the less room you have for limiting beliefs.

 

Look for ways to hold yourself accountable and be willing to seek help if needed. None of us are on this journey alone. Find an accountability partner, mastermind group, or coach to walk the journey with you. Check out our Facebook group for more accountability on your journey.

 

In this episode, we mentioned Life's Golden Ticket. It's one of the best books Kristin read in 2016. It's fiction but it teaches us a valuable lesson about limiting beliefs.
