Give Up Self-Limiting Beliefs

Challenge your beliefs by testing them to see if they're really true.
  • If you believe you're too socially awkward to make friends, ask yourself "What would I be doing if I were socially savvy?" Then, use a skill called, 'acting as if.' Act as if you were a socially savvy person.

Challenging areas in your life

Consider how you’re doing in the following areas:

  • Finances. Are you feeling financial pressure in your life? Do you have all the things you need or really want? How much money do you have in savings? Do you have the income you desire? Is that income secure?
  • Relationships. Are your relationships satisfying? 
  • Health. Are you taking good care of yourself? 
  • Fun & Adventure. Are you doing the things you really want to do?
  • Any other aspect of your life in which you’re experiencing dissatisfaction.

It’s why corrupt officials choose to be corrupt: because they assume everyone else is as corrupt as they are. It’s why cheaters choose to cheat. It’s why those who can’t trust are the ones who can’t be trusted.
