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. 

If you’re not pleased with your life, a limiting belief could be the cause.

Tony Robbins
Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.
W. Somerset Maugham
“If you don’t change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?”

Make a list of all of your beliefs, good and bad.

Examples related to money:

  • I’ll never be wealthy.
  • Rich people are dishonest.
  • I’ll never have enough money to have a nice house.
  • If I’m rich, people will try to steal from me.
  • My friends will treat me differently if I have a lot of money.

It will be difficult to make a lot of money if you believe these things.

Think about which beliefs are having the greatest negative impact on your life. Consider how your behavior will change if that belief is eliminated from your life.

Order all your limiting beliefs you have identified, in order, from the belief having the greatest negative impact to the least.

Now that you have a list of your limiting beliefs and have them in order, it’s time to start dealing with them.

Eliminate A Limiting Belief
  • Read the belief out loud and ask yourself: “Do I really know that this is true?”
  • Ask yourself where that belief came from.
  • Simply state to yourself: “I choose not to believe this anymore. It’s not true.” Look for supporting evidence.
  • Create a new belief that serves you. 
  • Measure yourself. How do you feel about your new beliefs? Is your behavior changing?
  • Go back to your list of limiting beliefs. As you experience new things, new limiting beliefs will show up.

Breath and stress

For people who are experiencing stress at any given moment, a form of relief can be to take a couple of deep breaths. 

Most people only use 20% of their lung capacity taking small short breaths. By taking the time to fill your lungs and release, you can not only improve your health but also radically decrease the anxiety related to that moment.

Beliefs As Self-Fulfilling Prophecies

What you believe influences the way you interpret events, how you feel, and how you behave. And much of the time, those beliefs turn into self-fulfilling prophecies.

If you believe you are socially awkward, you'll be less outgoing. The less you talk to people, the less likely you'll be to make social connections.
