20 limiting beliefs you could burn to a crisp.


I asked about your limiting beliefs. You answered. Et voila!: This is what liberation looks like:

I used to believe. . .

… That I had to have the answer before I began. – Stephanie

That if I explained why someone’s argument was faulty and they didn’t change their view, there was something wrong with me for not being able to convince them. – Alexa

… That I had to endure emotional abuse from a male boss because I was a single Mom and soooooo needed the job. – Tina

That ‘experts’ and ‘consultants’ knew my business vision better than me. – Linzi

… That Christianity was the one, true religion. – Deanna

That I should change myself to be more attractive to the people I’m around rather than seeking to be around people who are attracted to me as I am. – Mary

… That if it couldn’t be ‘proven’, I couldn’t believe in it. – Gretchen

That happiness comes from an external source. – Erin

… I used to believe everything a certain person in my life told me about myself. Years later, I realize they didn’t know me at all.

I am what other people think I am. – Kim

… That I was ugly and not worth anyone’s love. – Fiona

That I wasn’t good enough or worthy enough. – Deborah

… That to be respected and liked by others I had to be the smartest one in the room … Taken fifty five years to be okay with saying “I don’t know”. – Kathy

That if I support people (financially, emotionally or whatever) they will support me in return. – Chrissy

… That gay people go to hell. – Leanne

That I can’t lose weight. – Laurie

… That I was incapable of being creative. – Chrissy

1. That I wasn’t worth it, and 2. that alcohol held any answers. – Jennifer

… That I had to please my parents. – Justine

That you needed a college degree to be successful. – Cheval

 

This calls for a recap:

  • You don’t need to know the answer before you begin.
  • There’s nothing wrong with you if you can’t convince someone else that they’re wrong. (And actually, you might want to give up trying altogether on that one.)
  • College degrees don’t necessarily relate to success.
  • Respect and intelligence are NOT mutually exclusive.
  • You ARE creative (if you breathe, you’re creative.)

And this: You are worth it, you are worth it, you are worth it.

Believe that.
