The funny thing about limiting beliefs is that we often don’t know we even have them.
Today I’m sharing a personal journey with you of my own experience overcoming my limiting beliefs— and what that did to change my life for the better.
The way I personally know I have limiting beliefs is when I don’t have the results in my life that I really want— there’s usually a quiet little voice in my mind or my heart telling me that something better is possible. Sometimes it can be easier not to listen to this voice because we may feel we’re not capable of accomplishing what we dream to do, but I’m hoping that what I share with you today will inspire you to live YOUR unique purpose!
My Story with LearnDoBecome:
About 15 years ago I was dreaming of what we’re doing here and now at LearnDoBecome. I wanted to be part of a community of hundreds of thousands of people working to improve their lives, families, and connection to their Higher Power. A community filled with people striving to live their purpose AND to feel excited about life. I looked around online trying to find that community, and I never really could.
After telling Eric how much I wanted this incredible group of people to surround myself with, he told me that I just needed to go and build that community that I was looking for myself. His trust and belief in me meant SO much, but from there I still had to put in a lot of work.
Overcoming My Own Limiting Beliefs:
I had spent a few months trying out different things, writing content, reaching out to people, working to get published, and trying to figure out what to do. After several months of this, I decided one day to write a letter to a mentor who I hoped would be able to offer me some good advice.
In that letter, I wrote the sentence, “I want to be a strength to thousands of people.” I remember as I wrote the word “thousands” there was a little voice in my head that said “Who do you really think you are that you could impact thousands of people? Thousands of people don’t really need you and they’re all doing just fine without you.”
That was the voice in my head, but I just kept writing. I thought, “well yeah, maybe that’s a long shot and maybe it will take a long time to help that many people, but even if I help just one person a day, over my lifetime I could help thousands of people.” So I just kept going!
What’s Has Happened Since Then:
Since I first started writing and pursuing my community, SO much has happened. Over the last decade, we’ve now helped millions of people. We have hundreds of thousands of people formally in our community and tens of thousands of people inside our programs. My inbox is filled every day with dozens of comments of people saying how much our work is helping them, asking questions, and sharing their excitement and progress.
The way that we’ve been able to impact millions of people over time wasn’t because we decided to stay small and listen to those limiting beliefs. It was because we went outside of our comfort zone, and we did the things that felt really hard. We were able to counteract the voice that was saying “No, you can’t do that”— by taking action!
