7-Step Process To Squash Your Limiting Beliefs
“You can have anything you want in this world as long as you believe it.”
Is this too good to be true? Ohhhh, yes it is!
I believe everything is possible! I also KNOW that you are completely capable of creating the reality of your coaching dreams. (I feel it in my heart!) If you can imagine something, why the heck couldn’t you achieve it?
In fact, even if you can’t imagine it, it can totally still happen! (Trust me on this one!)
I know because I’ve experienced this myself in a HUGE way and I’ve seen thousands of others do the same. You wanna know how?
SOME INSPIRING READS
First things first, let’s get you some reading material!
A great book to read about creating the life you want is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. It’s a phenomenal read, and it shifted everything for me. (Like, hold the phone kind of shifting!)
One of my favorite quotes from this book is, “You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.” (Sigh — soooooo good! Am I right, or am I right?)
Another life-changing book is Wishes Fulfilled by Wayne Dyer. This book changed my life and helped me to understand exactly how I can create anything I want in my life — no matter how hard it is or how impossible it might seem.
Wayne himself created a life that he dreamed about from the time he was a child, even when others told him it was impossible. (“Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate,” as T Swift says!) You gotta keep your eye on the prize! It’s your life after all, better make it ahhhhmazing!
Okay, let’s pause here for a second so you can go buy your books! Come right back after you have — I’ll just be here rereading these books for the millionth time while you do.
SO, WHY CAN’T YOU?
And we’re back at it!
Chances are you have limiting beliefs trying to spare you from disappointment.
But it’s not just you! We ALL have limiting beliefs that can keep us from reaching the next level of happiness and fulfillment that’s available to us. This affects every single one of us in some way, no matter how successful we are.
These limiting beliefs are created in many different ways and at many different times in our lives.
We have a lot of limiting beliefs that we carry over from childhood. But, there are also limiting beliefs that come about as a result of something that you experienced as you got older.
For example, if you experience rejection after rejection when looking for a job you might come to develop the limiting belief that what you have to offer isn’t good enough and as a result, you aren’t good enough to be hired.
Maybe you’ve tried a diet (who among us hasn’t) and you weren’t able to stick to the diet for whatever reason. You might develop the limiting belief that you have no willpower and therefore can’t lose weight no matter what you try.
Of course, this totally isn’t true.
The crazy thing is, most of the time, we don’t even realize we’re doing this!
We do this so much that it becomes almost a default behavior, and we can’t see the forest for the trees.
I didn’t grow up with money or a comfortable lifestyle. In fact, I grew up with the opposite of that. As a result, I’ve struggled with my worth.
I remember we never had a nice car, and when we would pass someone who did, my mom would always say, “Look at those big shots. Who do they think they are?”
This taught me to believe that only bad people have nice things or money. I didn’t want to be bad, so I just wouldn’t have nice things or money. As you can see, this doesn’t make sense, but this is the way limiting beliefs work.
Even to this day, I have to be hyperaware of my thoughts and feelings at all times to ensure that my limiting beliefs aren’t sabotaging my success, my relationships, and more. (You gotta be a ninja at all times with these stinky limiting beliefs!)
Once you are aware of your limiting beliefs, you can use this 7-step process to get rid of them for good!
1. REALIZE YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS ARE ONLY FEAR
F.E.A.R = False Ego Appearing Real! That’s it! FALSE, y’all!
They are holding you back because you want to protect yourself — whether you consciously know it or not. They have good intentions but very bad outcomes.
2. LIST YOUR BELIEFS
This might take awhile so be prepared, and know that that’s perfectly okay. To get things rolling, here are a few limiting beliefs that might resonate with you…
- I’m not good enough.
- I don’t deserve it.
- Others can make money easily but I can’t.
- I’m not important.
- I’m too old/young to start this.
- I don’t have enough time to do it.
- I have the worst luck.
- I’m a terrible speaker.
Keep writing until you can’t write anymore and don’t worry if your list spans two notebooks and then some. The key is to create awareness, so these limiting beliefs don’t continue to derail you! Get them up and out — it’ll feel so good, just you wait!
3. WHICH ONE IS THE BIGGIE?
Choose one of your limiting beliefs (I know it’s tough to just pick one!) that you feel is keeping you from your dream of becoming a successful Health Coach in a big way. It could be anything that you wrote down. Just choose one to start with!
4. WRITE DOWN A TIME THAT WASN’T TRUE
For example, if you said, “I have the worst luck,” think of a time when amazing things happened to you and write them down.
You’re mostly collecting evidence that the limiting belief isn’t true. Dig deep! Find examples to disprove this theory. (I know they exsist!)
Write down as many as you can!
5. WRITE DOWN YOUR NEW, EMPOWERED BELIEF!
It should be the opposite of your original limiting belief.
So, in this example, “I have the worst luck” now becomes “I have the best luck, and the universe conspires to give me things that make me happy, healthy and fulfilled!”
Have fun with this one! Even if it feels funny to write or say at first, trust the process and watch the magic unfold!
6. REPEAT THIS NEW PHRASE
Repeat it throughout the day, week, and month until it’s something you believe to be true. Say it, write it, type it, draw it — put it wherever you’ll see it!
Continue to monitor your thoughts. If you feel this old limiting belief coming up again, just repeat your new empowered belief!
7. DO THIS WORK WITH ALL OF YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS
…So you can move forward and create the life you’ve always wanted! Now’s your chance, go for that dream of becoming a successful Health Coach!
MAKE IT YOUR REALITY
Whatever your dream is, take the actions to make it a reality! Don’t just say the words and wait for things to come to you, go out and get them — you deserve it, after all!
