Are limiting beliefs killing your dreams? Limiting beliefs are felons, responsible for killing more dreams than procrastination and poor planning combined. To see how this shows up, meet Tanya.Limiting beliefs are felons, responsible for killing more dreams than procrastination and poor planning combined.
Tanya is an attorney who has been building her practice for ten years. She has built a great reputation and has testimonials from many clients that she enjoys working with. From the outside looking in, her life is pretty darn terrific. But, she isn’t as happy as she thought she would be.
She has always wanted to write a book and loves the idea of self-publishing on Kindle to create a new income stream. She has outlined an entire series of books with an attorney as the main character (quelle surprise) and is excited about the prospect of seeing her words come to life.
She is also really attracted to the idea of creating new ‘passive’ ways to earn money that aren’t dependent on billable hours. She enjoys being a lawyer, but when she isn’t working, she isn’t earning money.
Unfortunately, Tanya has been listening to her Wilhemina, her inner confidence assassin. She struggles with thoughts like, “I don’t know where to start with actually writing these books. Who would want to read my books anyway? I have zero experience with self-publishing so I should wait until I learn everything.”
Before she knows it, Tanya’s limiting beliefs have killed her dream and cancelled her whole writing project. She tells herself that she has to master other things before she can try writing.
A Life You Love Is Waiting For You
You can probably relate to Tanya’s situation. You’ve wanted to launch a new career or start taking meaningful steps toward that promotion you’ve been dreaming of but then you hear your own inner confidence assassin. And she is LOUD!
Imagine this instead:
Imagine having the confidence you need to step into all that you are REALLY capable of doing. Imagine feeling in control of where your life is heading and knowing the steps you need to take to build a career and life that you love. Imagine meeting every obstacle head-on with plenty of confidence to spare.
Become the Woman You Are Meant to Be
You have the potential to reach all of your career goals. But you let limiting beliefs hold you back, and you keep playing small. You work in a job that doesn’t pay you what you’re worth. You don’t go for promotions because you think you don’t have enough experience. You don’t partner with a coach because you think you’re not important enough.
You keep listening to these lies and replaying them like your favorite song. You do this, not because you love being stuck, but because being stuck feels safer than going after what you really want.
Limiting beliefs are like playground bullies that keep pushing you around and it’s time that you get tired of that. It’s time to you stop listening to the bully’s taunts and insults. It’s time that you take back your power and enjoy the life you were meant to have.
Why You Should Conquer Your Limiting Beliefs
You can build a career that you adore, one that nurtures your soul and pays your bills. Imagine that you have a career so juicy that you cannot wait to jump out of bed and get to work every day! But first you have to tackle the self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back. Don’t be afraid—your best life is waiting for you on the other side.
