Limiting Beliefs

Don’t Let Your Limiting Beliefs Hold You Back -Get A Success Mindset

We all have limiting beliefs. They show up in our lives and even though we can’t always see how they are affecting us, they are there.

You can tell the areas of your life your beliefs are being affected by  just by looking at your life. Where in your life do you have issues or where do you feel stuck? Your false beliefs , depending on what they are can affect any area of your life. Relationships, money, happiness and so on.

Our limiting beliefs are what stop us from creating the life we want. We can do everything exactly right in an area of our life that we want to improve , but if we have limiting beliefs in that area, something will happen that will not let us move forward.

Our limiting beliefs come from our feelings around something at the time it happened. It may not be what actually happened, but it is how we perceived it to of happened. Usually this will of had to happen several times for it to become a belief. This is how your mindset works.

Do You Know How To Use Your Mind To Get What You Want?

The average person has no idea how to use their own mind to have a better life. Most people know that their thoughts and emotions create their worlds, but there is a lot more to it than that. We assume that if we think positive , than things will change. Unfortunately, it does not work that way, unless you have a clear mind.

Let me explain. We have a conscious and subconscious mind. Our conscious mind is what we use to think and reason, make decisions with and so on. Our subconscious mind remembers everything that has ever happened in our life and it remembers it by the way we felt at the time it happened. Our subconscious mind has no reasoning abilities. It just remembers.

Now when we were  children, we may of been scared of certain things, had hurt feelings, felt unloved, felt you weren’t good enough or other negative things. If these things did  not get resolved, we are still carrying them with us in our subconscious mind. Things that happen to us now in our normal day to day lives may trigger memories in our subconscious mind and so our subconscious mind will remind us of how we felt when we were a child.

If it triggers a good memory, you will have good thoughts and good feelings. These feelings will propel us ahead. If it is a not so good memory, then we will have some negative thoughts and feelings about what we want to do. This may not happen immediately, however over the course of a day or week or so, we will start to feel less and less like we can do whatever it was we wanted to do and those thoughts and feelings depending on how strong they are, may even stop us from trying.

These triggers build upon each other. for example if you felt that you were not good enough in certain areas as a child, then when you went to try something new a few years later and it did not work out, it would lead to you hesitating to try something new later on, Then possible down the road , it may turn into you not feeling comfortable enough to try anything new in certain areas.

Of course , it works the same way with positive experiences. One positive experience would build upon another and you would develop great self- confidence.

You, as a child may have ended up with  beliefs that helped you as a child , but now as an adult, these same beliefs are holding you back.

You, as a chid may have wanted a certain toy and were told we don’t have enough money, we need to buy other things. You may of developed a belief that you were not important and that there is not enough money for anything extra. So you grew up believing that. Those are both limiting beliefs that will affect your life.

You may find it hard to make the money you want or you may feel you can’t do certain things even though you know you are capable of doing it.

So it is the thoughts and feelings in our subconscious mind that hold us back from what we really want. In other words our limiting beliefs are the only things that stand between where we are now and where we want to be.

We have developed a certain mindset from our experiences and unless we change what is in our subconscious mind, our mindset will stay the same.

What about positive thinking?

We have so many thoughts that are going through our heads on a daily basis, we don’t hear them all, actually we don’t really hear most of them. With all the negative stuff in our subconscious mind, do you think that most of the stuff we are telling ourselves is positive?

If you have fears, doubts or you worry, then I can guarantee that a lot of the thoughts going through your mind are not positive. This is the reason that positive thinking does not work. It may make you feel better , but your subconscious mind does not agree and will override the thought and you will not even know it. So positive thinking will help you in the moment, it will make you feel good for a while. but it will not change your subconscious thoughts.

In order to create things in your life on purpose, you must know, without a doubt, that it is going to happen. That can not happen if you have doubts or fears in your subconscious mind about what you want to accomplish.

So how do we fix this?

All of our limiting beliefs were put there by us , even if we did not know it.  We are the only ones that can remove them. We are the only ones who can change our mindset. We, of course can learn about ways to help us remove our limiting beliefs.

There are a few different ways. We can learn to remove them ourselves or we can get help through a person trained to do so or through a program developed to do that.

It can take some time to remove the beliefs you have, but it would be time well spent because you can not change your life from where it is now to where you want to go by holding on to the same thought patterns.

To do it yourself, you would have to become aware of your thoughts. Basically knowing what you are telling yourself in your head.  These are the thoughts and feelings that are controlling your life. These are what need to be removed and replaced with positive things. A great place to start is learning to be in the present moment.

Then learning how to quiet your mind. Once the mind is mostly quiet and we can quiet it on demand, we can start removing all the unwanted stuff that is in our subconscious mind. Meditation can help a lot with learning to quiet your mind.

We need to look at each area of our lives and see what areas are being affected by our limiting beliefs.

So lets say you can’t seem to make as much money as you would like. You need to examine what you feel about money. Examine where those beliefs came from in your childhood.  Sometimes our intellectual beliefs are fine, but subconsciously we believe something else.

This can be confusing, but if you are having trouble or feel stuck in an area of your life and your intellectual beliefs are fine then look deeper because there is a limiting belief there.

This is not always easy to do. You may want to read some books that will help you better understand your particular situation.

This is not going to happen overnight. It can take sometime to find the false beliefs you have. Look closely at any areas of your life that you are not happy with or want to improve. Pay attention to how you feel about situations in those areas of your life. That will help you better understand where some of your beliefs are.

Your mindset needs to change so that what you are telling yourself is positive stuff. By removing your limiting beliefs , those thoughts that you tell yourself all day, the ones you don’t hear, they  will become only positive ones. So there will be nothing in your subconscious mind to stop you from creating whatever it is you want to create.

I have lots of people tell me that one of the biggest problems of removing beliefs is actually figuring out what they are. We all know what areas we want to improve in our lives, but figuring out the rest is hard.

But what if we didn’t actually have to figure it out? What if there was actually a way to change our mindset so the negative self- beliefs just go away?

Well there is , thanks to Chris Walton, who is an internationally recognized preformance psychologist, consciousness researcher and the author of two best selling books

Introducing : Gamma Mindset

Chris developed the Gamma Mindset because he was not satisified with the results he was seeing with therapy, hypnosis and other change techniques. Chris set out to find a way to change the limiting programs of the subconscious mind and quickly eliminate stress.

The Gamma Mindset creates deep change in the mind. It changes the limiting programs of the subconscious mind and quickly eliminates stress. It is a scientifically proven system that creates rapid and profound personal change and peak preformance.

It is a one of a kind , unique system that will change your life. You no longer will have a subconscious mind that limits you. You will have a powerful mindset that works for you, not against you!

It is fully guaranteed to work – If you don’t think it is working for you , Let Chris know and he will give you a full refund.

Remember everything happens from the inside out. You can not create a world on the outside that does not agree with your subconscious mind.

I know what if feels like to want to accomplish things in life and never be able to get there. I used to think , if only I work a bit harder or try harder, things will happen. It never did.

I had to face the fact that is was my own mindset that was holding me back. I wasted years figuring this out. I want you to understand that it is only YOU that is holding yourself back.

Trust me when I say, If  you can understand how important this is and take the steps to remove the negative stuff that is holding you back, you will feel so amazing.! You whole life will change! You will become who you want to be and you will do everything you ever wanted to.

I can not emphasize how life changing this will be for you. If you can close your eyes and envision who you want to be, what you want to do and how you want to feel. You can have it all! It will all be available to you without a subconscious mind that gets in your way.

With your new mindset , you will have a subconscious mind that will help you , it will send you thoughts that are positive, that help you move ahead. You will see things in a new light. Problems that you had, you will see solutions to.

I can basically go on and on about all the good thing that will come from having a correct mindset, as there are so many good things that will be happening for you. However, I will leave it to you, to experience for yourself.

    Great post. I’ve got quite an active mind and almost over think everything. It’s both a positive and a negative I believe. I think it can skew your own reality sometimes and create the limiting beliefs you’re talking about. Over thinking is overload, and takes a huge toll on you both psychologically and physically. I think the trick is to work on your discipline.

      Hi Gedeon,

      When we have an over active mind , we need to learn how to quiet the mind and control it. Limiting beliefs come from your mind and when you mind is constantly feeding you stuff that is no longer true for you then you are continuing to believe it and because you believe it ,you will act on it. If on the other hand you learn to hear what is being said then you can change those thoughts to truths for you.

    Unbelief, double mindedness, or doubt. Whichever name we choose to call this force, it is a powerful weapon that wages war against our minds and torment our souls. This force is so powerful that they can stagnate a person’s growth for years or paralyze them for life. Getting to the root of any unbelief will surely take some soul searching and a lot of time.

    However, I believe that the root of unbelief burrows deep in the soil of fear. Fear of not getting what we want, when we want it, and how we wanted it. Our doubts spring forth from our own selfish nature. If we can’t achieve something the way we want or if the end result isn’t guaranteed to look like we envisioned, then never mind. We just back down from these “proposed” walls instead of tearing them down. It’s one thing to be prudent, but to be mastered by fear is altogether a different matter.

    We don’t want to get hurt, embarrassed, or let down because that’s what doubt tells us is going to happen. It shouts out at the top of it’s lungs “You can’t do this!”, “You can’t do that!”, “What about this?”, “What about that?”. “What would people think?” These types of bricks can pile up quickly if we let them and before we know it, a whole city is built, and we find ourselves living smack dab in the middle of it. By this time we have buried ourselves under so many lies that it may take a lifetime to get from under them.

      Hi Shelly,

      It sounds like you have had some bad experiences. Sorry to hear that. People have to want change before it can happen. But there is hope if they are willing to invest in themselves.

    Hi Gloria,
    I find it very hard to find my own limiting beliefs, sometimes it feels like it sits right on my blind spot and I really can’t see it. Especially behind all the frustration that we commonly feel when things aren’t going our way. I feel I’m at a moment right now where my life doesn’t seem to be moving forward, but i really can’t put my finger on what’s holding me back. Sometimes, no matter how hard I try to reflect and analyse it feels like the effects of this stagnation are coming from outside and not the inside of me. Really made me think, thanks!

    Wow this really hits home. Your site looks fairly new and I hope you stick with it because I think you really have a lot to offer people. For 20 years of my life I did everything with the mindset that I was worthless. I grew up being told that I could never do anything right and that nobody would ever love me and I continually drilled that into my mind with every situation I encountered.
    I didn’t sit there and feel bad about it. It was just a fact in my mind. I wasn’t worth the clothes on my back. It’s only been the last few years that I’ve struggled to change that opinion of myself. It’s very hard to get rid of something that has just been your reality for two decades but I tell myself the things I always believed just aren’t true and I’m actually a very competent person.
    I can literally do anything I put my mind to and I have more ambition than most people. I still have a ways to go but it’s been well worth it and yielded a much more enjoyable life!

      I think your story is truly amazing. You are a strong person. Keep doing what you are doing. It sounds like you still have some limiting beliefs there. Keep at it , you will get there!

    I do agree that we all have self-limiting beliefs that do actually hold us back from accomplishing great things in life.

    Unfortunately, society is the #1 contributor to bringing us down in life because we begin to believe others opinions on what we CAN’T achieve in life, and this prevents us from building ourselves up and succeeding!

    Thanks for a great article because it brings back memories of how I used to be. Today, I drown out people, ignore their views, and work towards what I know I’m capable of accomplishing.

    I have no limiting beliefs anymore, and it’s fantastic!!!

      Hi Neil,

      Thanks for your comment. I am glad to here you like the article. If you have removed all your limiting beliefs that is wonderful. You must be living your dream life! Congrats to you.

    When I was younger I believed there was something bad about making money doing pleasant things. I didn’t feel I deserved to be paid. I guess it may be a problem with self-esteem… Only later did I realize that working doesn’t have to be painful. On the contrary, if you enjoy what you are doing, earning money becomes a pleasure.

    1. Gloria

      Hi Marta,

      Thanks for leaving a comment. We all have limiting beliefs , some we don’t even know we have. I did not realize I had any until I started looking closer at my life. Sounds like you removed one of your limiting beliefs without even knowing it. That’s awesome!
