overcoming limiting beliefsAsk me, I will answer it.

Test me, I will try it.

Provoke me, I will retaliate.

Whatever it is you want me to do, I will do it.

Not because I agree with what you want me to do but solely for the reason that I just want to prove to you that I can do it.

In overcoming limiting beliefs about ourselves, can” is the most powerful word that could hurdle all the blocks that limit success.

We Can, If We Will..!!!

Most of us may not know it yet but we have the power to be able to do a number of things that we initially think is impossible to do at the first instance. So if we think we can’t, then we really can’t. What we think of ourselves is really a crucial way in determining what we could actually do. Because if we limit ourselves through our thinking, then we can never really do what we think we can’t do.

Sky’s The Limit

Just like this famous expression, what we are capable of doing is limitless. Come to think of it, even the skies are no limit as the skies are frontiers that we have already explored as well. Just imagine the Wright Brothers. Were it not for their bold and daring thinking that we could actually travel from one place to another through the skies, then airplanes would not have been made!

What we hold in our thoughts are such powerful mantras that could unlock our limitless potentials to do great things, thus, overcoming limiting beliefs and onward to success. In the end, it doesn’t moatter what others think of us but how we inwardly see ourselves that really counts.

I Think

Cogito ergo sum. This Latin maxim is a constant reminder to us of how different human beings are from all other living things.We have the capacity to think. We are gifted with the power to rationalize. However, it is this power to reason out things, weighing options, which sometimes do us more harm than good if we want to succeed. Being too much of an intellectual by thinking too much of a good thing may end up limiting ourselves to what we are physically able to do.

I Believe

Amen. So be it. If you believe in yourself, there’s nothing you cannot do! Willpower! How can you expect other people to believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself?

I Know

When you know something, you are sure. It’s a fact that no one can take away from you. So go. Do!

Limitations are sometimes just illusions. In the words of the famous author Richard Bach in his timeless tale, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, overcoming limiting beliefs is learning to let go and trust yourself:

Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you’ll see the way to fly.

  1. Hi Elmar,

    I think the limitations sometimes stem from the fact that we are quite unsure of what lies ahead. We have to take some risks in life, though. You’ll never really know if the grass is greener on the other side unless you try.

    Thanks for the inspirational post!

  2. Hi Ilka,

    Absolutely, everything starts in the mind and the things that we believe can actually have an impact in our lives. We set our own limitations based on how we perceive things, but if we change our mindset, who knows what can be accomplished!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting 🙂

  3. Hi Belinda,

    Interesting question, perhaps it would depend on how we see things, if we have a more positive attitude then it is possible to overcome limiting beliefs. Believing in one’s self and being surrounded with positive people can really help us and in clearing away the negativity.

    Thanks for commenting and sharing your insights Belinda!
