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: GRATITUDE IN ALL SITUATIONS
Another part of this practice, to be grateful no matter what is happening, seems daunting and certainly not as easy. Intellectually, of course, it makes perfect sense. As spiritual beings having a human experience, we can understand, intellectually the reasons for gratitude in the most difficult of situations. Especially if we believe, (many of us do) that everything that happens is ultimately for our growth and betterment.
This week challenge yourself to feel grateful in all situations and see how transforming this can be. Start small, perhaps when you are delayed or stuck in traffic. When you become grateful for small pleasures, your outlook changes and opportunities seem to open up everywhere in your life.
