Limiting beliefs and blocks are those things that constrain you or hold you back in some way.
Just by believing in our limiting beliefs, we hinder and block possible positive outcomes of situations and even things that we are manifesting on purpose into our lives. In doing so, you can get stuck in situations you do not want to be in... you can become plateaued.
What are limiting beliefs?
Limiting beliefs are commonly given to us by the outside world and we take them on as truths even when there is no truth to it. Limiting beliefs are often about ourselves and our self-identity. The beliefs may also be about other people and the world in general, but if they are created within ourselves or in an outside source they are still our limiting beliefs and blocks.
How do you know if you have a limiting belief? Limiting beliefs are hidden in your subconscious mind. The signs will be evident when you continuously come across obstacles and challenges on your journey that could move you forward towards your vision and goals. You will not be able to get past certain issues because you keep doubting yourself and or your worth. You are allowing the limiting beliefs and blocks to hold you back. These limiting beliefs are "blocking" your progress because your mind subconsciously has a limiting belief or block.
You may recognize you have a limiting belief in one of the following ways:
When you make excuses.
You may be afraid of failure.
When you try to be perfect.
When you complain about things often.
When you have frequent negative thoughts.
When you have habits that are self-sabotaging.
