How to Break Out of your Limiting Beliefs

What limiting beliefs are holding you back?

You are the ultimate creator of your life. Stop giving your power away to external forces. You are responsible for the life you have created for yourself.

You have a conscious choice every moment to choose a different path.

This realization took me years of struggle and burn out to wrap my brain around.

Eight years ago I was teaching pilates full time in San Francisco. At the time I felt VERY stuck. I was teaching my passions and living out my dream in the big city, but I knew deep down that I was meant for SO much more.

My soul was calling me higher. Calling me to expand into the next level of my evolution.

I just didn’t know what that looked like, and I was scared to make a move outside of the comfort zone I had worked so hard to construct.

I felt trapped in a business modal and lifestyle that wasn’t sustainable. Working 80 hour weeks was regular for me, and rarely took a day off.

I felt like a slave to my own business. At the time I didn’t realize that I was really only trapped by my limiting beliefs. I was literally fighting for my limitations.

I would complain about feeling stuck and would come up with all types of reasons why nothing else would ever work. Sound familiar?

I didn’t know it then, but I was playing victim to my circumstances and fighting for my limitations. I was literally telling myself and everyone around me that it would be better if I stayed small.

This is an EXTREMELY common behavior that plays out in our society because we have been programmed to believe we are not enough.

What Are Your Limiting Beliefs?

Have you ever thought...

“That lifestyle, relationship, money, etc. isn’t meant for me."

“Who am I to deserve x,y,z...?”

“I could never do what he/she is doing.”

“Some people are just not meant to live out their dreams...”

These thoughts are complete bullshit.

They come from a place of fear. Fear that was programmed into you so that you wouldn’t realize your inherent power as a creator.

You have forgotten who you are. It’s time to remember and release these old programs that are not serving you. Reclaim your power, mind, and life.

How to Break Out!

Mindset is key, but nothing will change without ACTION. Now that we are aware that those old belief systems are keeping us trapped, let's take direct action.

Many of you were asking me how I made the big leap, changed my workaholic nature, restructured my business, and transcended my old belief systems.

The answer is... A LOT of action and facing my fear head-on. Through this process, I learned that fear is just an illusion and that everything I want/need to learn is on the other side of my fear.

I could write a book about the many failures and successes I encountered along my journey, but I’d rather share an exercise that will help you make clear decisions about your own life and help you implement some action steps.

So grab your journal & let’s get to it!

1.) Write down the top 10 things, experiences, rituals, environments, or people that make you happy and bring you joy. Exclude drugs, alcohol, and porn. Add a few of these items into your daily schedule so that by the end of the week you have completed all 10.

2.) What matters to you most? Is it connection time with family? Freedom to travel? Serving something greater than yourself? Get clear about your big WHY. What drives you to do what you do? Are you prioritizing these things in your daily schedule? If you're not prioritizing these things, how can you?

3.) Is your career of choice in full alignment with your heart, ethics, values, talents, and dreams? If not, ask yourself what you can do to change that now. What can you add to your day? What can you take away? Ask yourself, what old identities or beliefs do you need to let go of?

4.) Who can help you gain perspective and clarity? Hiring a coach or learning from a friend who has been where you want to go is the fastest way to shift. Their perspective and wisdom will support you as you transcend your former self and embrace the next level of your evolution.

5.) What does your ideal lifestyle feel like? You should get very detailed here. What can you do daily to help you feel this way now?

6.) What fears will you need to face to get to your next level?

 

Comment below and let me know how this goes for you! I look forward to hearing all about it.

 

Love & Light!
