“You can have anything you want if you will give up the belief that you can’t have it.” Dr. Robert Anthony
Good morning! Let’s start today off with a basic question. Do you truly believe you can have the things that you desire most in your life? If you don’t truly believe you can have what you desire– you will not achieve those desires. The law of attraction is always at work. We attract what we think about. If we think we cannot have something, we write our own ending and make it so. Likewise, when we give up limiting beliefs, we turn the page and write a new story.
Giving up limiting beliefs isn’t always easy. At some point our limiting beliefs probably served a purpose. Perhaps they kept us safe from an adult that could hurt us with words or might, or perhaps they kept us safe from other children in school. But as we carry these beliefs into adulthood, there comes a time when we have to “lay them to rest” if we truly want to reach our full potential.
To lay a limiting belief to rest, we must first be very conscious of the belief. We have to be able to articulate the current negative belief and then the new belief we want to lay in its place. Every time that negative belief or pattern emerges, we must halt our thinking and “program” ourselves to think in a positive way. It is best to do this aloud, in the mirror, or by writing down our belief, rather than just “thinking it.”
Your Turn: Identify at least 3 of self-limiting beliefs. Work with them until you can write them down and articulate them in a single sentence. Once you have identified them, replace them with a positive belief. Each time you catch yourself engaging in negative thought, turn to your affirmation pages and write your positive belief until the negative feeling disappears.
Today’s Affirmation: I shed limiting and negative beliefs and place positive and supportive thoughts in their place.
