Are 1 of These 3 Beliefs Holding You Back? (Or Maybe All 3)

Do you remember when I wrote a blog post about uprooting and getting rid of the negative belief that "you-aren't-good-enough"?   If not, you can read 3 ways to stop that FALSE belief by clicking here.   Well, I recently found out that there is more than one limiting belief.  In fact, all those negative and critical things we tell ourselves subconsciously stem from 3 limiting beliefs.  

Limiting beliefs are the monsters and dragons we can beat. This is a work in progress image of one of my dark fairytale paintings.

Usually, our subconscious is sabotaging us with 1 limiting belief more than the other 2.  But it's possible that all 3 are plaguing you.  I see friends and loved ones all the time thinking, acting and talking like they cannot have what they truly desire whether that's money, the perfect romantic partner or the career of their dreams.  I've seen it in myself too.  Through my art, I remind myself that I have the tools and knowledge and magic to get through this darkness.  Here are the 3 limiting beliefs:

  1.   IF I TRY, I'LL FAIL:  This is the belief that there's no use in trying it because you don't have the knowledge or resources or the right connections to do something like make lots of money.  

  2. NO ONE WILL WANT ME:  This is the belief that no one will find you pretty, attractive, smart or interesting and you are going to have to be alone. 

  3. I'M NOT WORTHY:  This is the belief that you're not good enough so you don't deserve whatever it is that you desire the most like your dream job.

Can you figure out which one is your most dominant limiting belief?  If not, here are 4 steps to find out:

  1. WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU DESIRE MOST. 

  2. WRITE DOWN WHY YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT.

  3. FOR EACH THING YOU WROTE, ASSIGN IT 1 OF THE 3 LIMITING BELIEFS.

  4. COUNT WHICH LIMITING BELIEF OCCURS THE MOST AND THIS IS YOUR #1 LIMITING BELIEF.

So you've figure it out.  Now what?  Well, like I wrote before in my previous post....write down the ideal situation.  Feel how good it will be to have what you desire the most.  Then carry this "ideal situation" around with you in your pocket wherever you do.  It will change those limiting beliefs into beliefs that you can get what you desire.  Let me start by saying, it's TRUE!  You do deserve all that you desire!  You are worthy!  You are good enough!
