Recognize Your Limiting beliefs

The chances are at some point in your life you will have heard of the expression “Limiting Beliefs”. You may be new to the term, but realize the importance of recognizing limiting beliefs. What are limiting beliefs? These are the beliefs that hold you back in your life, and the irony about these beliefs is the fact that they are rarely your own beliefs, although you often think they are. The truth is, before the age of seven you are like a sponge and you absorb everything. Including things you hear but cannot evaluate.

How did these limiting beliefs Get into my Subconscious?

Imagine the following scenario. You are four years of age, and you are sitting in the same room as your parents who are having a discussion. Supposedly, you are not listening to this conversation, in fact you are playing with your action man/Barbie doll or similar. You hear the phrase ” Johnny has gone bankrupt and yet another business”. Your mind is a sponge, but it doesn’t retain the exact words at this conversation. It does remember what you judge it to be. You perceive that the underlying message from this conversation is the fact that businesses fail. This is true, but not all businesses fail.

Why Do I Always Fail?

I Always Fail at Everything

Sometimes it can be very frustrating to rack up a long string of failures as you sit by and watch others succeed. Some people are capable of experiencing failure and moving past it with ease.

Unfortunately, many people wear their failures like a ball and chain around their ankles. They allow it to hold them back for an eternity. You have the power to change your mindset. Failure shines a light on the reality of failure. All it is is proof you tried.

Not everyone can say that.

Some people are too afraid to try or have never taken the time to learn what they need to know to attempt anything in this business. If you are someone who has experienced failure, it’s a sign that you have taken action.

Whether or not the end result was exactly what you wanted is irrelevant. If you truly want to see success as an online entrepreneur, you will take that failure, break it down to analyze it, and turn it into a success story. There’s danger in using absolute words like always. Putting it this way, it guarantees that each time you try something in the future, you have sealed your fate before you even start. Belief is everything in life.

Don’t Label Yourself

You have labeled yourself a complete and utter failure regardless of how much you have learned in the process. No matter how hard you tried, or any other determining factors. You have to change your language so that you give yourself a chance. For example, if you are trying to succeed at a specific goal, instead of saying you always fail at it, you might say, “I haven’t figured out how to do it yet.” Giving yourself the benefit of the doubt, as a result, you free yourself from that limiting belief that sabotages your efforts.

Recognize your limiting beliefs for what they are, they hold you back

Besides that, there are often many different reasons why someone experiences a failure. Sometimes, it’s no fault of their own. You may have invested in a course that was recommended to you, but which fails to give good instructions. Or, something else may have affected the outcome. The important thing is for you to take time to analyze what went wrong, see if there is a way you can fix it, and try again until you can move it over to the success column.

Even if you can’t figure it out on your own if you will simply allow yourself the dignity of requesting help from others. Generally, people love to help. I am part of an amazing online community, someone will always help. You can very often change the narrative from being a constant failure to being an eventual success.

Recognize that Some Entrepreneurs Are only In it for the Money!

But that’s not necessarily the case. There are many infamous online entrepreneurs who have earned their wealth based on the backs of those who are desperate to have what they are showcasing online.

They want the mansion, the exotic vacations, and the sports cars that cost as much as a home. If you want to avoid getting scammed by other marketers, you have to do your homework about each and every vendor and not get drawn into the hype on the sales page.

The worst thing you can do for your own success is to constantly point the finger at others. Whether or not someone was capable of convincing you to buy their product, it is ultimately up to you to take responsibility for the purchase.

You can usually find out who is ethical by networking with others in the industry. This way, you will get a wide variety of opinions from seasoned marketers who know the history of other vendors in can advise and warn you if you are about to make an unsafe purchase.
