Learning how to identify beliefs that will hold us back from more success requires a higher level of self-awareness.
How we view the world and the experiences we have, is often based on our beliefs. We create our reality to match our beliefs.
This means if we are not experiencing the reality we want, it’s an opportunity to install new beliefs.
If we pay closer attention to how we operate or the decisions we make, we’ll find evidence of our beliefs playing out. Knowing how to identify our beliefs will make a big difference in our lives.
Examples of Beliefs That Can Affect Your Success
We cannot see our beliefs because they’re not something tangible or physical. Beliefs are internal. They’re thoughts or ideas true to us, based on our model of the world.
While there are many beliefs, common ones include:
- I’m not worthy enough.
- I’m not good, talented or smart enough.
- I’m too old or too young.
- I’m don’t know enough.
- I’m afraid of failing.
- I’m not loveable.
- I won’t take risks, so I won’t be judged.
- I can only have what I want if I had more money.
No matter what level of success we’ve reached, we can always improve to achieve more success. To do that, we have to replace beliefs that don’t serve us with new, empowering beliefs.
