Your Limiting Beliefs Are Bullshit


Yes. That's what I'm telling you. Your limiting beliefs are bullshit.


But where do limiting beliefs come from?


Our beliefs are either other people’s beliefs that they projected onto us (for example money is the root of all evil, you’re too stupid to do that etc etc bullshit bullshit).


Or maybe someone treated you badly and you blame yourself, someone told you something over and over again (you’ll never amount to anything, you can’t do anything right, why can’t you be more like your brother/sister) and it became a belief.


As adults, these beliefs don’t serve us. They keep us safe. Comfortable. Even though where you are in your life might not be ‘comfortable’ right now, it’s all you know. So you stay stuck where you are because anything else is scary and means making changes and doing things you’ve not done before because your beliefs are telling you you can’t do it.


These beliefs are NOT yours. You weren't born with a long list of limiting beliefs. You didn't give up trying to walk as a toddler because you 'weren't good enough' or you were 'too stupid.'


Maybe you interpreted what someone did or said to you as your fault and now it holds you back in every area of your life. You might have some kind of success, you might be happy on the outside, but you know you’re not where you could be if only you had more belief in yourself.


When you’re telling yourself stories of ‘not being good enough’ or that you’re not able to create the life you want, your brain will look for evidence of that. You’ll replay events and situations over and over in your head to reinforce the belief that you’re ‘not good enough.’


Start questioning your beliefs. Was the way someone treated you really your fault? Was what was said to you really the truth? If you were treated or spoken to badly, they were inflicting their hurt and pain onto you. It WASN’T your fault. You were not to blame.


Question EVERYTHING. Tell yourself a new story. Look at what you’ve achieved. Look at the good things you’ve done in your life. I literally hated myself for a long time.


I had good jobs and earned decent money but I wasn’t happy. Because of my childhood, I had a bad attitude and relationship towards myself. When I changed that, everything changed.

You can rewrite your story. Your future doesn't have to look like your past.
