Our limiting beliefs sit in our subconscious mind and thus stunt us from seeing—or believing in—possibility. And because of our mind’s confirmation bias (the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one's existing beliefs or theories), we are prone to believe what we want to believe.
In essence, that’s exactly why you think you’re terrible with money or why you think you’re unworthy of true love—because you unconsciously look for reasons to affirm such beliefs.

The problem with our approach to breaking free from limiting beliefs is that we try to do it too fast, too quickly. But change takes time.
Here are the four steps involved in this process:
“You can train yourself to change the way you think. By considering possibilities instead of limitations on a regular basis, you’ll rewire your brain.”
"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right"
A limiting belief is an idea that we have about ourselves or life that blocks us from achieving what it is we truly want to achieve.
It begins with a limiting thought that what we tell ourselves over and over and over again until we fully accept it and come to believe it to be true. Examples: "I’m terrible with money" or “I can never be a business owner.”
“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.”
Your mind is wildly capable, and at any time you can tap into it to find the resources you needed to solve any problem, overcome any obstacle, and reach your ultimate success.
Your mind is the most powerful resource you have , but unfortunately, not many people know how to use it to its fullest potential.
If you want to achieve your goals and start living the life you’ve always dreamt of, you’ve got to start learning how to use your mind to your advantage.
Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, to the present moment, without judgment. It’s recognizing what is really going on right now in your mind and in your body.
Mindfulness is noticing the feeling. Usually we feel it in our bodies first. Where does this feeling of worry show up physically? Knots in the stomach or tightness in the chest?
It’s noticing what thoughts we’re having, without judgment. Ask yourself, what story I’m I telling myself about this?
