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: IN THE KITCHEN OF LIFE
Last week we spoke about having a complaint free day…How did you do? Remember that it takes practice to re-train your mind to think differently. There is a gravitational pull back to the familiar so be patient with your amazing self!
Today, I wanted to share a story that goes along with the theme. Enjoy!
A young woman was complaining to her mother about how difficult her life had become. Her mother said nothing but took her to the kitchen and set three pans of water to boil. To the first pan she added carrots, to the second eggs and to the third ground coffee. After the three had cooked she put the contents into separate bowls and asked her daughter to cut into the eggs,the carrots and smell the coffee. “What does this all mean?”,the daughter asked impatiently.
“Each food, the mother said, teaches us something about facing adversity as represented by the boiling water. The carrot went in hard but came out soft and weak. The eggs went in fragile and came out hardened. The coffee however, changed the water to something better.”
“Which would you like as you face life?”, she asked. “Will you give up, become hard or transform adversity into triumph? As the chef of your own life, what will you bring to the table?” (Taken from Bits and Pieces Magazine)
So, as you go through your week realize that you always have choices…
To Your Choices.
