What's really holding you back?

It's easy to feel stuck in the daily grind of work and living. The pressure to perform, the fear of failure, and the relentless pursuit of success can leave you feeling trapped in a cycle of limiting beliefs and self-doubt. You may not even realize it, but the thoughts and beliefs that you hold about yourself and your capabilities play a significant role in shaping your reality. The constant stream of negative self-talk, the fear of stepping out of your comfort zone, and the mindset of "I can't" are all barriers that hold you back from reaching your full potential.


Let’s explore some examples. For instance, you may tend to believe that vulnerability is a weakness and that asking for help is a sign of incompetence. These beliefs can prevent you from forming meaningful connections with your colleagues and hinder collaboration. What if you fear rejection and feel the need to constantly seek validation from others? This can lead to a lack of confidence and an inability to take ownership of your ideas and decisions.


On the other hand, you may struggle with the belief that change is inherently risky and should be avoided at all costs. This can result in complacency and a reluctance to pursue new opportunities. Or, you may find yourself constantly striving for perfection, fearing failure, and becoming paralyzed by the need to control every outcome.



Here's the good news - you have the power to change those thoughts and beliefs. You can let go of the old patterns and self-limiting beliefs that have kept you stuck in auto-pilot mode for far too long. You have the courage to step into the vision you want for your life, free from the shackles of discouragement and apathy. Here are 3 simple things to do to get you started.


  1. Recognize which limiting belief keeps you trapped. Which of these examples relate most to your experience? Your first step is to shine a light on that belief.

  2. Next, think of a time when you accomplished something your belief said you couldn't. If you can't come up with your own experience, research other people who may have had similar stories and see how they were able to overcome it.

  3. Learning from these experiences, think of any gaps holding you back from achieving your goals. What new skills do you need to develop? How can you improve yourself to become the person who accomplishes your goals with courage? Once you know what skills you need, get started learning! Confidence will come with competence and cause those limiting beliefs to flee.


By fostering a growth mindset and embracing the discomfort that comes with change and vulnerability, you will start to experience the positive change you are looking for. Seek out support from mentors, and surround yourself with a community that encourages you to take risks and learn from failure.


It's time to challenge those limiting beliefs and reframe your mindset. Instead of saying "I can't", start telling yourself "I can". Replace thoughts of self-doubt with affirmations of confidence and resilience. Take a moment to reflect on the moments when you have overcome challenges and achieved success, and let those experiences empower you to break free from the chains of self-limiting beliefs.


I know you can!
