This topic, dear reader, is a powerful concept and it touches every single aspect of your life, from your relationships, to your financial status to your health.
We all grow up believing in some sort of limits.
For some of us, those limits were more constricting than that of others, but they were still there. And most women tend to unconsciously carry the limits they grew up believing with them into adulthood, not understanding that most of that was simply taken on faith, without examining those beliefs or thinking through them critically.
Let’s take relationships with men, for example.
Many women come to truly believe any number of limiting concepts including that men only want them for sex, men will use them, men will try to control them, men will only give them gifts on holidays, etc.
Financially, unless you are one of the few born to wealthy parents, you come to believe such concepts as “money doesn’t grow on trees”; you come to believe that money is something difficult to come by, something that must be struggled for, something that is used as a tool of control over others.
The idea that none of this is even true, that they are simply self-imposed limits that serve to cause self-sabotage to success, happiness, and fulfillment is so foreign a concept that it most likely never crosses your mind.
To see the truth of this, begin with a young child you know. Tell her with conviction (this is important – if there’s no conviction in your voice it will not work) that she’s beautiful, intelligent, and that one day she’s going to be very successful. Watch how she changes her behavior in ways that fulfill your words (:
