6 Steps to Breaking Limiting Beliefs

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

Limiting beliefs are negative or self-destructive thoughts, ideas, or assumptions that can hold you back from realising your FULL potential and achieving a life you once never thought was possible for you.

There are many reasons why we experience limiting beliefs. From past experiences, social conditioning and fear or failure, to comparison with others, lack of self-awareness and confidence.

They are just a STORY you tell yourself. But no matter where this story has stemmed from, you can use these 6 steps to break through them.

1. Identify It

They typically follow a framework of “I’m not…” or “I can’t”, or “I don’t” OR it’s a narrative you’ve created with the connotation that “this is how the world works”.

2. Is it true?

Are there any actual FACTS that support this thought? Am I looking at ALL of the facts or just the ones I’m choosing? If I asked someone else if this thought were trust, would they have a different opinion?

3. Explore the source of it

Where or who did it come from? (usually from childhood or past experiences created to protect you or serve in some way in your life thus far). What evidence do you have against it if you look at it OBJECTIVELY?

4. What would life be like without it?

Ask yourself how these things impact your life and happiness! Ask yourself “What if it’s not true…?”

5. Reframe it

Reframe the original belief in a way that counteracts it!

6. Find evidence to support it

Find evidence that the new belief is true! How will your actions moving forward support this new belief?

It's important to recognise and address limiting beliefs because they can hinder personal growth, limit opportunities, and lead to a less fulfilling life. Use our six tips above to break down your limiting beliefs, so you can achieve your full potential in every aspect of your life.
