The American Dream is the belief that anyone, no matter what their origins or circumstances, can achieve great success and wealth. We all embrace the American Dream, but few of us achieve everything we desire in life.
From the time we enter the world we are developing and storing negative thoughts that hold us back. I call these negative thoughts limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are our conscious and unconscious thoughts that restrict our opportunities and our outcomes. Limiting beliefs keep us from dreaming big. They keep us from acting big. They keep us from achieving big.
Examples of limiting beliefs include:
- Love: My soul mate and I will never argue; we will always agree on everything.
- Career: It doesn’t matter what job I do as long as it has a paycheck.
- Wealth: You have to be lucky or have connections to get rich.
- Health: Everyone gets aches and pains as they get older.
Limiting beliefs stand in the way of attracting the circumstances and events that help us grow. In the “love” example above, thinking that you and your soul mate will never argue, keeps you from understanding that great relationships are created, they aren’t magical gifts from god.
We learn limiting beliefs in two ways. One way we learn these limiting beliefs is that our parents and caregivers teach them to us. For example, parents teach us that “we can’t have everything we want” and “we have to be good to get what we want” and “you need to work hard to get the good things in life.”
These and other beliefs teach us not to expect to be powerful creators of our own lives. They teach us that other people are in charge of our destiny. They teach us that it’s hard to get what we want out of life, and therefore, we should not expect to receive those things we desire.
The second way we learn limiting beliefs is through interaction with the environment. When children are disappointed or thwarted in any way, they often believe that it’s because there is something wrong with them and it’s their fault. They take on a lot of blame and self-doubt that ultimately guides how they react in similar situations. They learn that others control their destiny unless adults help them understand how much power they have in their own lives.
Over time, we acquire so many limiting beliefs that we keep ourselves from achieving great things in our lives. Each of us takes on limiting beliefs without even knowing we are doing it. Your current path in life is the result of all of your beliefs.
The really good news is that your path is not set in stone…you can change it, and only you can change it. By uncovering and eliminating the negative beliefs you hold you can achieve the things you want in life.
