Transform Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs are the unconscious opinions we hold which prevent us from manifesting our intentions.

They are often based on past experiences instead of facts, and are cemented by confirmation bias (the tendency to only see evidence that confirms what we already believe, and overlook evidence to the contrary).

This exercise is used to identify and transform these beliefs.

Go through your list of intentions and the goals you have set for each one. Write down any reasons that come to mind as to why you have not achieved them already, or feel that you cannot achieve them.

For each of these reasons, highlight those which refer to "facts" about yourself, other people or the world.

For example:

"I can't ..."

"People don't like ..."

"I need to be/have ... in order to achieve ..."

Now write down the opposite of the highlighted statements. Imagine that the opposite is true, visualize what your life would be like if it was true.

Research this new opposing belief, try to find evidence that it is true, or possible. Speak to other people, read books or search online.

Any evidence you find should now become a positive affirmation.

Repeat daily - read it aloud every day for at least two weeks.
