We all prefer to live within our comfort zones, in every aspect of our lives. You will find that behind every comfort zone there are strong limiting beliefs that are restrictions about your abilities, which you are convinced are true.
These limiting beliefs tend to keep you ‘safe’ with what your unconscious feels is appropriate or not. They can be thoughts like, ‘I’m scared of spiders’, ‘I refuse to fly in an aeroplane’ or ‘I can’t get in a lift’. It could also be beliefs about ourselves such as, ‘I will never lose weight’ or ‘I can’t find a partner’.
Staying emotionally safe is the real reason we live within these comfort zones. To move on, expand your life and overcome these limiting beliefs, you must:
- Understand that you are not your belief, as we identify with our beliefs.
- Accept that you might be wrong!
- Push the boundaries of what you think you are capable of.
Nowadays, with amazing techniques, such as NLP, TFT, CBT and EFT, many of these fears, in the hands of a professional and reputable practitioner, can become a thing of the past in minutes. In my work as a seminar promoter, I have witnessed this frequently. Change that has affected the quality of life for many people and their families for years.
But the most amazing thing is not that people overcome their limiting beliefs, it is that, once they do, they ask themselves, ‘What else am I capable of doing? What else is holding me back? To find some help visit www.thebestyoudirectory.co
