Let me ask you something… How often are you questioning your own beliefs?
Some of you question your beliefs a lot… you’re also the one who questions the status quo… you little rebel!
The reality is, though…most of us aren’t even open to the notion of changing our beliefs. Our belief are our beliefs. We aren’t inclined to change them (assuming we’re aware of them).
But it’s not necessarily the ones we are aware of that cause us the biggest problems in business and in life…

Stick with me here…most of the time the most dangerous, sabotaging limited beliefs are hidden deep down in our subconscious.
They totally direct ALL of the decisions we make, and we aren’t even aware of it! (How crazy is that?!?)
It’s kind of like when you’re driving somewhere, and then when you get to your destination, you’re like… “Dang…I’m here already? I barely even remember driving here!”
(Admit it…it happens to you too!)
Let me give you an example of a limiting belief that stopped me from losing weight for YEARS!
How Limiting Beliefs Can Stop You From Losing Weight
For years and years (like 8 of them) I kept gaining weight. I would try a diet, lose a little then gain it all back (and then some!)
When this would happen, some thoughts would pop into my mind…
- I work crazy hours, so I don’t have time to cook healthy food
- I’m super stressed…so I need that ________ (glass of wine, chocolate bar, tub of ice cream)
- I’m older- my metabolism has slowed down- it’s natural.
- If I exercise, I’ll hurt my hip again…
These excuses stopped me from even ATTEMPTING to really lose weight.
One day I recognized these thoughts for what they REALLY are.
B.S. Limiting Beliefs.
They are not TRUTHS. They are stories I’ve made up, and played over and over again in my head.
Those nasty little buggers STOPPED me from being my very best self. They stopped me from sharing my message in a big way. They were messing with my mission in life.
Once I realized that- I knew that I had to do something about it. I had to CHANGE that belief.
And guess what friends? You CAN change them. That’s the FAB news.
So what’s a girl (or guy) to do?
Well, if you’re stuck in a rut like I was…the first step is to:
Identify Your Beliefs
What are the BIG goals you’ve set for yourself that you’re not reaching…
What are the things you’ve been WANTING to change, but haven’t?
The things that are holding you back are probably those darn limiting beliefs!
So sit down and make a list of all of the reasons you haven’t done what you need or want to do. Then for each once- decide… Truth or B.S.
If it’s B.S. it’s time to get to work on changing the story you’re telling yourself.
Maybe it’s hypnosis… maybe it’s a mindset coach… maybe it’s affirmations or a therapist, or some combination…
At the end of the day- if you keep identifying and reprogramming your limiting beliefs, you can literally TRANSFORM your life… I should know, because that’s exactly what I did :)
