Limiting beliefs that may be blocking your abundance and ways to counteract them to take control of your life!
A course in miracles states that there are no idle thoughts. Every thought is being communicated to the universe and is creating your reality. This is why it is very important to pay attention to our thoughts and beliefs in order to create the reality we desire.
Oftentimes people are blocking their happiness and success by clinging to limiting beliefs.
Here are some limiting beliefs that may be blocking you from the abundance that you deserve:
1. I am not ready
The most popular limiting belief amongst perfectionists and also one of the sneakiest ones.
‘’Ill buy that dress once I shed these two pounds’’
‘’I can’t do so and so because I don’t have so and so’’
‘’Ill ask her out once I have so and so’’
These are all sneaky excuses to not go after your dreams. It is difficult when you are a perfectionist to not fixate on these little things here and there and go after what you desire because your first instinct is to make sure it is ‘perfect’ and good enough. Truth is, ‘perfect’ does not exist and you are ready NOW.
If you let this limiting belief take control of you, you will watch your dreams pass you by as you wait for an illusion (perfection) to appear magically one day.
2. It’s too late to pursue my dreams
Vera Wang was a journalist before entering the fashion world at the age of 40. Now she is one of the biggest names in the fashion world.
Ray Kroc was a milkshake-device salesman before buying McDonald’s at the age of 50 and turning it in to the successful franchise that it is today.
If these people can do it. So, can you!
3. The city that I reside in does not have any eligible bachelors/bachelorettes
Your beliefs shape your reality. If you are clinging on to the belief that your ideal partner does not exist in your city, then chances are that your ideal partner will never show up in your city. You may also keep meeting ideal partners while traveling which causes you to wonder why you can’t seem to find these potential partners in your city.
Shift your beliefs and watch your reality shift with them!
4. I don’t have time
This is a fear based excuse that prevents us from taking action. We all have the same 24 hours in the day. If something is important to you, you will find the time.
5. I do not deserve success
When we are born, we have this inner knowing that we are deserving of the very best in life. As we grow and interact with the world, and get exposed to societal conditioning, we begin to lose this inner knowing. We may begin to develop this belief that we are not good enough and that we do not deserve success. These beliefs carry on with us until adulthood.
You may not even be aware that you are clinging to these beliefs. This is why it is important to pay attention to our inner dialogue.
Truth is, we are all deserving of happiness and the very best in life.
Do you recognize any of these limiting beliefs? Do you find yourself habitually using them mentally? Well, here are some affirmations that you can use to shift those beliefs and take control of your life!
