Do you know why so many people don’t achieve their goals or live the life they say they want to be living? It is because they don’t believe that they can actually achieve what they say they want. If you don’t firmly believe that you can do something, be something, or achieve something, then you will unconsciously hold yourself back over and over. The reality is, if you want to do something that is challenging, you likely do not have the skills, strength, knowledge, means, etc. to do it today. If you did, you would already be doing it, right?
However, it does not mean that you can’t acquire the necessary skills and knowledge, build your strength, or increase your means so that you can accomplish your goal. In order to do that, however, you must first believe in yourself and believe that with work and focus, you can achieve something that you have never achieved before. This is critical because if you don’t actually believe in yourself, you will unconsciously sabotage yourself.
The ways in which individuals sabotage themselves can vary but it may be that they continually tell themselves that they don’t have the time required to work towards their goal. They may focus on how others don’t support them and give up. They may procrastinate and wait for the “perfect time” or the “right level of motivation” to start pursuing something. They may take two steps forward and then two…or even three steps back. It is hard to be willing to put in the work to accomplish something that requires effort, if you don’t actually believe that you can make it happen.
You will keep resetting to your comfort zone, which is where you are currently. If you think that you are holding yourself back because you do not believe you can accomplish what you want to, follow my 5 tips below.
5 Tips for Overcoming Your Self Limiting Beliefs.
Use this formula over and over and watch yourself move closer and closer to your bigger goal. You will be less likely to self-sabotage because with each small goal you are reminding yourself that you can achieve what you set out to achieve one step at a time.
