Earlier this month we talked about looking at limiting beliefs and understanding how the resulting thoughts and attitudes affect our actions and behaviors. I promised that you didn’t have to be bound by your limiting beliefs and that you can turn them around to be life-giving and lead to thriving. Now we will explore how!
Let’s take the next step with our activity. We started with this flow:
· A limiting belief and unhelpful mindset is formed. Mine was “I’m not worthy”.
· Thoughts and attitudes grow from that belief. Mine were “I must prove my worth and earn my value”.
· Finally, actions and behaviors result from the thoughts. My actions were to strive for grades, achievements and accolades to prove myself and gain love which led to a lifetime of striving.
Now let’s move to another flow. We want to see what the positive/helpful mindset or belief would be.
