Your beliefs hold a strong impact on your self-esteem. They control what you believe; they motivate you and allow you to spire for greatness in whatever you choose to set your sights upon. Read on to discover how to overcome your limiting beliefs.
These beliefs have a strong impact on how you do business. It affects how you coordinate your team members to reach your goals and how you build relationships with your external environment.
When your beliefs reduce your ability to progress in your business or personal life, they have become limiting beliefs that you need to get through.
While trying to understand limiting beliefs, it is important to understand why limiting beliefs are formed in the first place.
Limiting beliefs are thoughts that arise mostly as a defense mechanism to avoid disappointments, frustrations, stress, and failure. When you have suffered through an intense experience previously, you generate these beliefs as a way to shield you from feeling these negative ways.
These limiting beliefs are formed through personal beliefs and experiences, hereditary beliefs, fear, society, social circles and expectations, and religious beliefs.
The problem with limiting beliefs is that they prevent you from trying new things, gaining new experiences, and succeeding in a new venture.
Though you may think that you have everything well in hand, you can discover if you have these limiting beliefs too. Simply think deeply about yourself and your desires. If there is something you wish to achieve but aren’t working towards it because of any of the above limiting belief-forming reasons, then that’s one of them.
These 5 steps can help you overcome your limiting beliefs.
- Identify your limiting beliefs
By shining a light on the limiting beliefs that plague you, you can begin to overcome them. Take a deep breath and analyze the feeling of fear or limitations that hold you back. Are they currently preventing you from starting something you’d like to do?
The best thing to do is identify all the limiting beliefs you have and start with the largest one. By doing this, you can tackle the others with more confidence.
- Determine what made them
By identifying these beliefs, you finally acknowledge that they reside within you. It is now time to recognize that they are just beliefs and not facts. By putting them in a specific box of thought, you prevent this belief from growing uncontrollably.
After doing this, you can determine what experiences or relationships instilled these beliefs in you. Only then can you acknowledge that they are based on falsities and not facts.
- Challenge these beliefs
Now it’s time to get your gloves out and fight these beliefs. Analyze them, tackle them, and ask deep questions that unravel these beliefs. Find reasonable explanations and solutions to the things that plague you.
It is also important to distance yourself from some of these causing experiences. If you cannot change the society you live in or the hereditary experiences through familial relations, you can expand your understanding of the topic and challenge every instance claimed to be facts.
When you challenge these beliefs, you gradually reduce their hold in your life and see it for what it truly is; just a belief. When you challenge these beliefs, you choose to control what you accept as facts and carefully curate the type of energy you invite into your life.
- Recognize its consequences
The best way to get rid of limiting beliefs is to acknowledge their damning consequences in your life. What has it prevented you from achieving? Will you be happier or more productive without those beliefs? Would you have achieved more? Are you willing to try again and accept that failure and disappointment shouldn’t be a permanent feeling?
When you recognize the consequences of limiting beliefs, you draw attention to where you could be in the world and how much better you can be feeling.
You need to recognize the consequences of limiting beliefs because they do more than just hurt you and your life. They can also breed negative feelings towards your friends, family, and acquaintances through jealousy and envy that can alienate you.

- Adopt a new belief
The main point of identifying, recognizing, and challenging these limiting beliefs is that you find a way to overcome them. The best way to overcome limiting beliefs still remains expunging them and adopting new beliefs in their places.
Choose something new to believe in. Understand that a one or two-time failure doesn’t automatically spell continuous doom in that respect. Though the transition to adopting new beliefs may not be easy, it doesn’t make it impossible.
Take action and start working on implementing new beliefs in your life. Fight through every limiting belief that springs up in a familiar setting and keep replacing it with a new belief until you have successfully shifted your mindset from seeking the negative.
Root yourself in positive thinking and surround yourself with the right company that supports you and helps you grow. Your limiting beliefs will gradually disappear, and a new, refreshing mindset will sit permanently in its place.
