“Your subconscious mind does not argue with you. It accepts what your conscious mind decrees. If you say, “I can’t afford it,” your subconscious mind works to make it true. Select a better thought. Decree, “I will buy it. I accept it in my mind.”
Dr. Joseph Murphy –
Like what I’ve said in my Lisa Nichols podcasts, our beliefs, especially from when we were young, really control what’s going on today. It could be beliefs about our own capabilities, belief about what it takes to success, beliefs about how we relate with other people, or common everyday beliefs that we see or live by. Identify those limiting beliefs (Lisa Nichols – https://www.spreaker.com/episode/10255673) and replace them with positive ones that support your success.
What Are Some of Those Limiting Beliefs?
- I’m not (smart, attractive, rich, old, or young) enough.
- I’m not worthy.
- I’m not lovable.
- Life is hard until you die.
- Nothing I do is right.
- You can’t get rich in this profession.
- There’s aren’t any good men left in this world.
I recall Tony Robbins talking about how severely paid teachers are in America, and then he went on to speak about a Korean American teacher who went from making 60k USD a year to 4 million…just by destroying that limiting belief of you can’t get rich in this profession.
How To Overcome Any Limiting Belief
- Identify the limiting belief that you want to change. Make a list of all of them that are limiting you. Invite a couple friends over who would also like to accelerate their growth to join you to brainstorm a list of all the things you hear growing up.
- Money doesn’t grow on trees.
- Can’t you do anything right?
- Eat everything on your plate.
- Act like a lady.
- People aren’t interested in your problems.
When you’re finished making this list, pick a belief that is still limiting you and take yourself through the remaining steps of the process.
2. Determine how the beliefs limit you.
3. Decide how you would rather be, act, or feel.
4. Create a turnaround statement that affirms or gives you permission to be, act, or feel this new way.
- My negative limiting belief is Thai women hate black men because that’s what I’ve seen my entire life living out here in Thailand.
- The way this limits me is I put every human being of the opposite sex in the same category and that’s called generalizing. It’s untrue that ALL women hate black men.
- The way I want to feel is I need to love myself for who I am and what I look like. The only person that’s creating this reality is me, and if I continue to say something that’s not true, it will continue to happen. I want to have smiles directed towards me and women talk to me with no race attached to it.
- My turnaround statement Thai women absolutely adore and love black men, including myself.
This is one of the most significant limiting beliefs that somewhat lingers in my mind from time-to-time. This is also an example of what your statement will look like. My colleague and I will do a podcast of this within the next couple of weeks so you can hear how it works.
