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 "I AM"
Two of the most powerful words in the English language are I am and the meaning of the words that follow. If we believe for instance, that financial success is difficult, this will come out in our subconscious beliefs as these sorts of statements; “I am broke, I am low on money, I am not good with money, or I am limited.”
Contrast with these statements, “I am prosperous in many ways, I am open to new ideas around my finances, I am resourceful with money, I am abundant.” Not only will you raise your energy/vibration around money, but your subconscious mind will go to work looking for ways to support your beliefs.
Since everything is created twice, first in thought and then in the material form, we must be ever so vigilant in what we say. Our thought seeds are just like vegetable or flower seeds. Once we plant them and give them proper time and attention they will grow. If we focus on I am statements to empower us, we grow in awareness of these principles.
Just pay attention this week to your predominate thoughts when you make “I am” statements.
You are powerful beyond measure!
