Have you ever felt like you’re not good enough, smart enough or talented enough? Have you ever talked yourself out of pursuing a dream because you believed it was impossible for you to achieve? These are common experiences that we all face, and they are often the result of limiting beliefs and self-doubt. In this blog, we will explore how to overcome limiting beliefs and self-doubt.
What are limiting beliefs?
Limiting beliefs are negative thoughts and assumptions about ourselves and the world around us. They are beliefs that we hold about our abilities, potential, and limitations that prevent us from achieving our goals and living up to our full potential. Some common limiting beliefs include:
- I’m not good enough
- I don’t have what it takes to succeed
- I don’t deserve success
- I’m too old/young to pursue my dreams
- It’s too late to start something new
What is self-doubt?
Self-doubt is the feeling of uncertainty or lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities. It can be caused by past failures, criticism, or comparison to others. Self-doubt can lead to anxiety, procrastination, and avoidance of challenging situations.
