Everyone has limiting beliefs that they may or may not be aware of. The human mind instills a lot of beliefs as we progress through several hurdles and accomplishments in life. These dictate the lens through which we see the world with. Only when we believe we can succeed or acquire what we feel we deserve, confidence rises within ourselves. What’s holding you back? Limiting beliefs. They make it look like the goals we have are impossible to reach, which is not the case.

In this article, let us go through a few ways we can break through a self- limiting barriers and triumph:

Minimalism – Having a cluttered mind makes it hard to focus on factors you would brand as crucial. Investing too much in materialistic goods is an example. Pay attention to the reasons why you feel you invest more than expected. This could bring a drastic but excellent change to your environment as well as your mindset.

Positive Affirmations – Saying a positive affirmation to support yourself several times does bring about a significant change. Instead of trying to craft an affirmation that could appear to be blatantly untrue, use ones that make you feel like putting them into practice would help you reach your goals. Self-esteem is important in the long run.

Get imaginative – Let your mind wander and come up with several worst-case scenarios. Although anxiety can arise, this exercise lets you see possibilities and can help you become comfortable/prepare for them. This will lead to a confident self overlooking any situation and handling it in the best way. Don’t overlook the potential of imagination. It helps ground you and come to terms with what you’ve imagined. 

Commit to Lifelong Learning – Consume knowledge that helps you become a better version of yourself. Gather materials that develop your current version, be it a book, journaling or a podcast you found on Spotify. When exposed to different perspectives and ideas, critical thinking comes into play and this can empower you to push past your limiting beliefs. Actively seeking development is the best way to grow. 

Choose beliefs that make your life worth living. It’s hard to always push away negative thoughts and actions but trying is what matters. Instead of completely omitting, try replacing small habits one by one before attempting to climb the peak. Hope these habits help you in your journey.
