How often do you hear old worn-out stories in your mind that say “You can’t, or you’re not allowed to do something you have always wanted to do? Either it’s because you’re in fear of doing that thing or someone told you that you can’t or that it’s impossible.
Limiting beliefs are a set of self-imposed mental blocks that prevent us from achieving our goals and reaching our full potential. Or we pick up these beliefs along our path through family, friends, partners, or co-workers. They can be deeply rooted in our subconscious, and without recognizing them, and as a result, we can fall into a cycle of self-sabotage. By understanding what limiting beliefs are, we can take the necessary steps to identify and overcome them in order to unlock personal growth and success.

But with practice and giving yourself permission to move past these limiting beliefs you can break free from them.

For me, letting go of limiting beliefs was a process that required me to be intentional and dedicated to the outcome. There were challenges along the way and many times I wanted to give up. However, I wanted “freedom” more than I wanted the insanity of those limiting beliefs. Don’t get me wrong, at times I can still fall short with the “old stories” and I find the courage to take action to shift those beliefs and do something different.
