Are You Stuck With Limiting Beliefs?

Beware of gremlins in your head.

You know the ones. Those little voices that say things like –

You’re not smart enough
You’re too old
You can’t change

Don’t Fight Your Limiting Beliefs

There’s no sense arguing with gremlins. It never works. They just fight back harder than ever.

So begin by acknowledging your limiting beliefs. Recognize when you’re holding a thought that doesn’t serve you.

Then put it aside.

Getting Unstuck Tip

Putting it aside isn’t the same as arguing. You won’t debate whether the belief is right or wrong.

Rather, simply decide that for the next 15 minutes, three hours, two days or however long you choose, you’ll act as if you don’t hear that belief.

Imagine yourself putting the belief on a shelf. Maybe you’ll come back for it soon… or maybe not.
