Limiting beliefs can be catastrophic to our daily lives, but I can help.
“I don’t want to get married. I’m afraid of commitment. I’m going to pull back and self-sabotage.” Does that sound familiar? Those were the words of my coaching client, Derek, when he approached me four months ago. The issue at hand was his crumbling relationship with his girlfriend. While she desired a long-term marriage, Derek wasn’t on the same page. However, deep down, he sensed there was something special about their bond and didn’t want to let it slip away.
In his search for guidance, Derek reached out to me for assistance. We explored the root of his limiting belief surrounding marriage. During our sessions, one exercise involved visualization, where Derek engaged in a conversation between his present self and his five-year-old self. Through this process, Derek discovered that his negative perception of marriage was a projection from his father.
“Derek had the courage to seek help and put in the effort to address his challenges.”
For years, Derek had carried this borrowed and inauthentic limiting belief about marriage. Together, Derek and I embarked on a journey of transformation, starting with a blank canvas. Derek had the opportunity to redefine his reality, beliefs, and possibilities related to marriage.
Today, Derek and his fiancée are scheduled to tie the knot next month. All this became possible because Derek had the courage to seek help and put in the effort to address his challenges. Now, I pose a question to you: What limiting belief is obstructing your path to achieving maximum success, significance, and fulfillment? If we remain unaware of our limiting beliefs, they can impede us from pursuing what matters most to us throughout our entire lives.
Let’s draw inspiration from Derek’s story. Reflect on the limiting beliefs in your own life that may be hindering your journey toward success, significance, and impact. If you have any questions or want help discovering your limiting beliefs, call or email me anytime. I would be happy to hear from you.
