I told my audience that if they changed their beliefs they could change their lives ~ Dr. Bruce Lipton, cell biologist
It’s the messages you tell yourself that matter most, says celebrity hypnotherapist and author, Marisa Peers. “Belief without talent will get you further than talent with no belief. If you have the two you will be unstoppable.”
You may not be aware of your own self-limiting beliefs and patterns, or the negative, confining impact of others’ beliefs about you. Perhaps you’ve defined your life according to what others think you are capable of or believe you should settle for.
To get at some of the core beliefs standing between you and your desired success ask yourself, “I’ll do anything to achieve (insert goal/dream) just don’t ask me to do that (insert the fear or belief that holds you back).
Acknowledge the things you don’t believe and challenge them. Interview your beliefs by asking them the following questions.
“Where’s your evidence for that?” (That being whatever you fear or hold to be true?)
“What’s the worst that could happen if you pursued your passion? How bad would that really be? How can you increase the likelihood of success?”
“What tells you that you could follow your dreams?” (a nice shift from focusing on the problem to looking for solutions instead).
“What have you tried recently that worked? What you are you doing now that works?”
“Who do you know that is happy at work? What could you learn from them?”
“How does your (supportive other) know you can do this? What difference will it make to them when you are happier and more successful?”
You’ll find other helpful strategies to challenge self-limiting beliefs in my book, Boost Your Self-Esteem and Confidence: Six Easy Steps to Increase Self-Confidence, Self-esteem, Self-Value and Love Yourself More.
I’ve also included a helpful section in my book, Mid-Life Career Rescue: What Makes You Happy. In this book, I share my experience following reading The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles, by Dr. Bruce Lipton.
So often we aren’t even aware of what our self-limiting beliefs are. If your beliefs are ingrained, or you keep sabotaging your own success, seeking help from a qualified practitioner with expertise in reprogramming stubborn, disempowering beliefs may be a game-changer
Chances are you don’t need to see a therapist to move beyond self-limiting beliefs, but if you do—go and get help. There’s magic in that
You can also learn from some of the most powerful, effective and simple techniques used by practitioners working in the realm of positive psychology and mind reprogramming—including hypnosis
