“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.”
~ Albert Einstein
Limiting beliefs are beliefs that we hold either consciously or subconsciously that serve as obstacles to achieving and attracting what we want.
For example, each year many schoolchildren are told by teachers that they “aren’t smart” or “won’t amount to much.” As a result, these children often carry, throughout their lives, this extremely negative and limiting belief. They incorrectly believe, at either conscious and/or subconscious levels, that they can’t achieve success, and as a result they don’t.
This holds very true in business, and, as such, it is imperative that you both identify and overcome your limiting beliefs.
For example, do you hold any of the following limiting beliefs?
- I don’t have enough time to become a successful entrepreneur
- I can’t start or grow my business since I don’t have enough money
- Failure is shameful, and if my venture fails I will be shamed
- I can’t be a successful entrepreneur because I’m lacking certain educational degrees
- I can’t change or improve; I do things my way and that’s who I am
These false beliefs and “excuses” prevent many entrepreneurs from achieving greatness. So identify these beliefs and force yourself to get rid of them.
