‘A mind stretched by a new idea never shrinks back to its original proportions.’
Oliver Wendell Holmes
We see the world as we are, we see it through layers of stuff. Things like beliefs, fears, memories, opinions, ideas about what we think will make us happy.
What is a belief? It is a feeling of certainty about what something means. When we realise that beliefs are a choice we make and we can choose to change them in any moment. The easiest way to find out if your belief is empowering or limiting is by asking one simple question: Does your belief say, “I can’t” or “Not possible”? If your answer is yes, then it is a limiting belief.
Think about the most limiting belief you have about:
About the opposite sex
About my dream
About myself: I am …
Now look at these limiting beliefs and turn them into beliefs that empower you. that new belief, Decide to replace the limiting belief with a new positive experience, with time and effort it will become more natural. The first step is realising you have a limiting belief.
Expanding your limits and boundaries helps remove limiting beliefs and you start living without limits outside of your comfort zone.
You create you own reality and are responsible for what you create. Commit to uncover your limiting beliefs, rather than holding yourself back.
No more excuses. Begin to take small steps in a new direction. Decide to open the window to create new possibilities in your life today.
“Open the window of your mind. Allow the fresh air, new lights and new truths to enter.”
