How limiting beliefs impact and interfere with success
Limiting beliefs are thoughts or attitudes that we may consciously or unconsciously hold onto that limit our partnership, our business and us. These beliefs often prevent our natural growth from moving more smoothly and progressively. We may not even be aware that such an idea is a belief, let alone a limiting belief. We just assimilate these ideas into our existence and it simply becomes the way we see the world and ourselves. These beliefs are usually intact by the time we are seven years old.
In order to be more aware of our subconscious thinking we have to know which beliefs are limiting our lives. Even if your life is good right now and your business is doing well, there is so much more that awaits you as you become more aware of your thinking.
This process can take hours or even weeks of reflection. Take your time and be curious to investigate your past. It provides information about attitudes and beliefs that you may or may not continue to hold today. Positive, as well as negative memories are equally as significant.
Here are some examples of limiting beliefs. Check the ones that resonate with you.

BLOG: A LOVE AFFAIR FOREVER...
I found this story recently and feel it’s fitting for February, a month that we celebrate LOVE and connections. Enjoy… It was pretty moving. Don’t be surprised if your eyes water a little!
Fond du Lac, WI:
True love conquers all, but sometimes it needs a little help.
A Fond du Lac man who spent nearly 56 years with his wife, didn’t want to let her memory go.
Bud Caldwell, 82, has a routine that he sticks to every single day.
He drives to Lakeside Park, rain or shine, and he visits the bench he bought and dedicated to his wife Betty after she passed away two years ago.
While he’s there, Bud tells Betty about what’s going on in his life and leaves a daisy and a penny.
The two mementos are left in tribute to two of their favorite songs together, “Pennies from Heaven” and “Daisy a Day”.
“It felt like the natural thing to do,” Caldwell said.
A few weeks ago it snowed in Fond du Lac and the path Bud takes to Betty was covered in snow.
Bud tried to make his way through the snow in a previous year and fell; this winter he didn’t want to risk it.
So, he sat in his car and spoke to Betty instead, that is until two Fond du Lac Parks employees noticed his routine.
Jerrod Ebert and Kevin Schultz got shovels and cleared the path for Bud.
The gesture brought them both to tears, but Ebert and Schultz couldn’t bear to see Bud not be able to leave his daisy and penny.
“We have to make sure he can get to his bench and talk to his wife,” Ebert said.
Bud said that Ebert and Schultz have vowed to keep the path clear all winter for him.
So, as long as he can, Bud will leave his daisy and penny for Betty.
