I spend a lot of time talking about limiting beliefs, so today I really wanted to get into what they are and why they are holding you back from your fullest potential.
I have seen time and time again women entrepreneurs, business owners, and career focused women be held back by their limiting beliefs. These invisible scripts playing in their head telling them that they won’t accomplish anything, they aren’t smart enough, good enough, they don’t know enough, to succeed.
Limiting beliefs play out in all aspects of our lives. Keep reading to find out what they are how they impact you, and what you can do about it.
What are Limiting Beliefs?
Limiting beliefs are thoughts or a frame of mind that you think and believe is absolute truth that stop you from doing things, reaching goals, hopes, dreams, living your life in a fulfilling way.
Limiting beliefs sound like this:
“I’m not smart enough to do that.”
“I’m not creative enough.”
“I can’t do that.”
“I’m not good enough.”
Where do limiting beliefs come from?
Limiting beliefs stem what we witness at home, school, with family and friends in childhood. Including how people interact with each other, with us, how these people speak to us, other people. If they are being respectful or not. The language that is spoken.
Were the people around you kind to you and each other? Or were there arguments? Did you witness others coaxing, nagging, shutting down, yelling, manipulating, people pleasing to get their own needs met?
Did they use shame or guilt to get you to behave? Or to get what they wanted?
When we witness these things in our childhood, they paint a picture of how we think the world is. How we are supposed to act, respond, and behave. We tally up what is “good” & “bad”. They teach us how to be loved. How to get our needs met.
These beliefs get solidified into our subconscious.
Limiting beliefs make us believe that we are unlovable, undeserving, unworthy. Unless we act a certain way-
Maybe if we weren’t being “too much”.
If only we could be smarter.
If we could just do everything right…
Then we could be lovable, deserving, worthy, successful.
These beliefs become invisible scripts dictating our lives.
And dictate our lives they do-
-These beliefs become that hyper critical voice in our heads telling us we won’t amount to anything.
-They become imposter syndrome when we know deep down, we are well qualified for the job, or more than able to start a business.
-These invisible scripts become people pleasing behaviors bending over backwards for everyone else, trying to prove to them that we are worthy of their love.
-They become codependency, enmeshment.
-The stop us in our tracks and throw us off our paths with procrastination.
-Ultimately, they impact our self-worth.
Worthiness, feeling deserving, feeling lovable, are innate within us. Our True Self has these qualities at the ready.
But parts of us hold onto these beliefs and invisible scripts like they are fact. Because of it we don’t get to become who we are meant to be in this world.
These parts are trying to keep us safe, but at what cost?
It’s time to ask yourself-
Who would you be if you weren’t held back by these limiting beliefs?
Now is the time to do something about these limiting beliefs and invisible scripts dictating your life.
