I know it's been a long time since my last post. Like I told the other ladies, I have no excuse. I'll try and pick up where I left off last time. I believe I was talking about beliefs and the power of the mind. The question being, what type of beliefs do you have? There are 2 types: empowering beliefs and limiting beliefs.

Empowering beliefs:
  • Allow us to tap into our full potential
  • Help us ask better questions to access resources that can help us reach our goal
  • Encourage us to look for solutions instead of quitting when we face challenges

Examples of empowering beliefs: If I did it before, I can do it again
I know it's possible
There has to be a way
I have all the tools I need, it will just take time,
perseverance and patience
Exercise is fun

Limiting beliefs:

  • Cause us to ignore opportunities by not focusing our minds on solutions
  • Create a sense of false limits about our abilities, talents and power
  • Limit our potential

Examples of limiting beliefs: I could never do that
I'm not ______enough (smart, pretty, wealthy)
I'll never be able to lose weight and keep it off
I don't have enough time

I there is something you would like to change about your life, what are your beliefs about that issue. Are your beliefs helping you or hurting you?

The good thing is that beliefs can be changed!!!
