Questions to Help Identify Your Limiting Beliefs
During the first 6 or so years of our life, we soak up everything we hear
and our young brains believe it to be true. During these years we
develop our most powerful, and often times most life-limiting, beliefs
that can stick with us for the rest of our lives.
All of this information is held in our subconscious, and it’s there to keep us
safe. It’s how we learn that the stove is hot because it burnt our hand, or how
we know to look both ways before crossing the street because our parents
drilled that home with us every single day.
However, some of these beliefs hold us back in life and keep us in a state of
fear and ignorance.
Typical limiting beliefs take the form of:
● “I can’t do that because”
● “I don’t deserve that because”
● “If I do this something bad is going to happen”
● “I can’t do this because people will think”
I’m sure some of those statements sound familiar. I know I’ve said them on
more than one occasion. So what do we do now?
Here are 10 questions we can ask ourselves that will help us dig deep into our
subconscious and identify our limiting beliefs.
