What’s holding you back from achieving your heart’s desire? Sure, there might be logical reasons, but most of the time, it’s nothing more than a few limiting beliefs.
What are limiting beliefs?
Before May 6th, 1954, science said running a mile in under four minutes was impossible. The entire world believed it. It sounds very logical. Unfortunately, it was not true. Read that again. It was not true!
Roger Bannister was determined to break the barrier, and he did on May 6th. That day he finished at 3: 59. With one race, Bannister broke a limiting belief held by the entire world. Think about it. This belief was held by humanity for six thousand years of recorded history, and one man broke it with one amazing foot race.
So let me ask you a question. Think about all of the reasons you can’t achieve success. Write them down. Then I want you to study them carefully. Are they limits, or are they limiting beliefs?
If you think Roger Bannister was just some superhuman, let me tell you another tidbit of information. His record only lasted 46 days! Somebody else broke it six weeks later. Now more than 1400 men have broken the barrier.
So was it really a limit, or was it a mindset? It was a limiting belief.
How many times have you told yourself? You can’t succeed because you went to the wrong school or didn’t have enough money. If you study the most successful people in the world, you will find that most of them didn’t go to the right school, have the right name, or have enough money.
You’ll find people with dyslexia that failed school. When you start studying successful people, you’ll find high school dropouts, college dropouts, poverty-stricken people, and people of all sizes, shapes, and colors. It doesn’t matter what your limiting belief is. It can be overcome.
I think about one example that hit me hard. When I first heard it. I was writing true crime stories back then and listened to an interview given by Sammy the bull. For those who don’t know, he was John Gotti’s underboss. In this interview, he blamed everything on the fact that he had dyslexia and didn’t do good in school. No one was there to guide him, so he just went off the rails. Now, this sounds legitimate. But then listen to this. Richard Branson has dyslexia too. He didn’t do well in school either. At the time of this writing, he is worth 3 billion dollars!
If that doesn’t surprise you enough, guess who else is on the list of famous dyslexics on Google.? Albert Einstein! Yes, you read that right. The man known for his IQ and genius had dyslexia.
So let me ask you again. Why can’t you achieve what you’re going after? Are those excuses valid? Maybe you need to learn a new skill or find a mentor, but you can overcome your perceived limits most of the time.
