“Hell to the No you’re going to post this! Are you crazy woman?”, are the words going through my mind while I’m writing this.
So while I’m creating this new relationship with Fear — ‘cause that’s what my hesitation to post this, is about…good old Fear — I’m making way for my vulnerability to speak the truth.
The silent killer
Do you know that your happiness comes down to the beliefs you have about yourself, your potential and about the world. A belief is a feeling of certainty about what something means to you.
And limiting beliefs are the silent killers — very skilled in their craft of killing your dreams. They hold you back from achieving your full potential.
Am I good enough?
This is my silent killer. My limiting belief pops-up in the form of a question. Unconsciously I’ve been asking myself this question for years. Am I good enough?
The thing is, I see myself as confident, bold, a risk taker. So how could I be walking around with such a limiting question? That feeling of doubt, because I couldn’t answer this question with a wholehearted “Yes, I am good enough”, was keeping me small in different areas of my life. And to be honest, sometimes it still is.
Sneaky son of a gun
Limiting beliefs are sneaky. You can go your whole life having excuses for why your life is the way it is. Not knowing that You’re the one who’s keeping YOU from getting what you want.
We all have beliefs that hold us back. That’s nothing to feel ashamed of.
- I’m too old or I’m too young
- I’m not smart enough
- No one will ever love me again
- There are No good men out there
- Love is too painful
- Money is the root of all evil
- The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
- … and the list goes on and on
If you want to live the life you deserve,
you must overcome your limiting beliefs.
1. First be honest with yourself by acknowledging you have limiting beliefs
Be consciously aware of the beliefs you’re creating and catch them in the act the moment they show up.
2. Change your limiting beliefs
Go deep and ask yourself questions to see if what you’ve been telling yourself is really the truth. And remember that hiding behind ignorance will not get you the happy life you want. Swap those beliefs with empowering one’s.
3. Take massive action toward the outcome you want
A pitiful outcome is the result of little action or no action. This feeds your limiting belief even more and causes you again to take little to no action at all. You see how that can make you feel stuck and mess up your whole mojo. So make sure to take Massive action.
If I’d listened to my limiting belief, I would’ve never put this post — my first blog post ever — out there, for the world to see.
Now it’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you.
Name one belief that’s holding you back from:
- reaching your full potential
- going for your dreams or
- making a decision you know you need to make
What is the empowering belief that will make it possible for you to break free?
And what massive action are you going to take that will move you closer to the life you love?

It means the world to me!
