How many times have you been told a positive attitude is the key to success? I personally believe this because I have seen how it can transform a bad situation. However, its not always easy to achieve things when that little voice in your head won’t shut up. This is the voice that tells you that your not good enough. You believe this voice and you allow it to stop your progress.

This negative inner voice is the foundation of all your limiting beliefs. A limiting belief is something that is untrue but you have convinced yourself that it is. A good example is going to a job interview. You know that the employer is interested (hence the interview) but you convince yourself that your not good enough to get the job.

These negative thoughts could be the opinions others have about you or insecurities you hold about yourself. Most commonly we seem to be developing a mild form of body dysmorphia because we are obsessed with changing a perfectly normal body, into a Hollywood lollipop. What ever negative thoughts you hold about yourself, it’s time to get rid of them. You deserve to live a happy and accomplished life. Don’t allow that negative voice to stop you from achieving your goals.

Insert your limiting belief here {              }

  • I’m not good enough
  • I always do that
  • That will never happen to me.

We have all said one of the above at some point. Repeating that same negative phrase over and over again will start to make you feel depressed. You begin to believe those things about yourself and miss valuable opportunities. Write down all your limiting beliefs and then ask yourself if they are really true. Think back to a challenging time in your life and about how you dealt with that. It’s time to start changing the way you think.

Replace the negative with a positive 

Create a new set of beliefs that you repeat quietly in your head . Write these on brightly coloured post it notes and stick them in places that you go everyday. Soon you will start to believe them and slowly things will begin to change. You will feel more confident in taking on new challenges. Your life will no longer be limited and you can allow yourself to achieve anything. This isn’t an easy process and you will always have negative thoughts from time to time. The important thing is not to allow them to take over your life.

I believe that there are many things that make a successful person. A positive attitude is one, but learning how to be dynamic and adapt to change without falling apart is another. Be kind to yourself and give yourself the space to grow into the person that you have always wanted to be.
