“If you don’t change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?”

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.
