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: THE POWER OF GRATITUDE
Gratitude is an active, powerful, spiritual practice. It allows us to see and experience things differently when we are open to this. It can shift our perspective much like the practice of forgiveness. Gratitude is at the center of most successful people’s daily practice.
All of us have things to be grateful for. Most days I make it a point to begin the day and end the day with the things I am grateful for (this is easier on some days than others). The point is to become aware and conscious of all the daily (small and large) wonders.
Of course it is easier to practice when things are going well. Perhaps some of us do this at the dinner table or before we eat any meal. Many say prayers of gratitude at Thanksgiving, other meaningful holidays or special family get-togethers. In my childhood family, this was the norm at the holidays. My father always said grace.
Although, giving thanks for what we have in the good times and during holidays is still a wonderful practice, it is not particularly life changing or enlightening to do this. Let’s face it, when things are going well we are generally happy and can feel grateful.
