Are you a victim of self-sabotage? Think about this for a second.
Do you think you have to “yield” all the time and resist your negative emotions?
What is your answer?
Unfortunately, the chances are highly likely that you are a victim of self-sabotage. Maybe not on a daily basis, but we human beings are growing into this world filled with negative thoughts. No wonder, in school, we learned all about two things. Passing or failing. Not being good enough to finish school with good grades.
It is no surprise to me that there is so much self-sabotage around. As much as it is not a surprise, it disturbs me. It disturbs me when I realize that I am self-sabotaging myself, but in particular when I see the people around me suffering. Probably because they have a limiting belief. But do they know about it? Are they aware? Are they too scared to address it?
What is a limiting belief? “Limiting beliefs make you feel heavy and weighed you down” (Dane Maxwell).
In case you are, like me, a victim of regular self-sabotage or you think it is blocking you to reach your full potential, I believe it is time to address the mindset. I would love to see more happy people around who put less pressure on them!
I have been trying to master my mindset better since I joined a training program in November last year. The actual tangible objective of this program on the surface is to build a software product. But the intangible objective is to shift your mindsets. Step by step. And this is why I joined this program. The value I have been getting is amazing. But I have no intention of selling the program to you, or something like that.
My intention here is to share an amazing video where one of the co-founders Dane Maxwell really goes into the details of us self-sabotaging ourselves with limiting beliefs and he provides a great framework to turn those limiting beliefs into empowering stuff!
While the context might not be 100% relevant to you, feel free to leave it on the side, the most important take-away I want you to get from this video is the framework to addressing limiting beliefs by asking yourself a set of question once a limiting belief comes up.
Click here to take a look at this video “Limiting beliefs” now. (In case you are being asked to provide your email address on that page, just below on ‘skip this step’.)
After you have watched the video, go and try out the question framework he provided yourself. Start with a light one, whatever comes into your mind next time you feel pressure on you.
Here are the questions once again:
- Is this belief true?
- Is this belief beyond a shadow of a doubt true?
- How does this belief make you feel?
- What would the opposite thought be?
- How does that opposite belief make you feel?
Let us know in the comments below how this framework works for you! Make some positive chance happen in your life!
