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: INCREASING YOUR SENSE OF DESERVING
In order to manifest our dreams, we need to align our self-image with the life we would love living.
If your sense of deserving isn’t wide and deep enough to hold your dream, you will fall short.
How do you know if you deserve your dream? If you are breathing, you deserve to have your heart’s desire. Simply by virtue of you being alive you are worthy and deserving of your dream.
You wouldn’t feel the longing if you didn’t have the capacity to manifest your dream.
Here are three keys to increasing your sense of deserving:
1. Focus on the good.
Circumstances are bad only if you perceive them as such. Instead of panicking when life appears to throw you a curve, wait and invite God to reveal the good. Then give yourself the same benefit of the doubt. You are naturally good because God created you.
2. Let go of past mistakes.
It’s hard to move confidently into the life you have imagined if you are lugging deadweight. When you persist in carrying the baggage of your childhood, your shame or your belief that you are unlovable, you have no room for greater possibility. Let go of encumbrances by identifying and releasing your own Harry.
3. Practice gratitude to increase your sense of deserving.
An “attitude of gratitude” enables you to construct your dream on a solid foundation of deserving. Begin by spending a day giving thanks to those you’ve criticized. From there, build a pattern of daily gratitude. When we begin to appreciate those we once condemned or took for granted, the field around the object of our appreciation broadens, attracting to itself even greater good.
When you practice these three principles, you will feel your sense of deserving expand and you’ll begin to see unexpected good things flow into your life.
You Are Worthy!
