The one who's acting like a little monster… you
know this person very well, but sometimes you
don't realize they're holding you back.
Are you ready for me to reveal who the culprit
Well, believe it or not… it's you!
Let me explain why I say this… and how I came
to learn this. When I say that "you're sabotaging
yourself"… I mean that thoughts you may not
even be aware of are sabotaging your success.
These thoughts are called "limiting beliefs," and
we form them at a very young age, and everyone,
yes everyone, has them, so you're not alone.
Most of us are completely unaware that we have
A life coach walked me through an exercise asking me
a series of questions about money and asked when
I first started to form a limiting belief around money,
and it was at age 5.
That's when I started going to school and noticing
that I didn't have the cool shoes, or cool clothes and didn't own
much - like the other kids did.
It was then that I realized I had "less than."
And it was then that my limiting belief around money
was born…. and little to my knowledge I would carry
that burden for years to come., cuppled with other
comments like "we can't afford that" and "we're not made of money"
in "sponge mode" which is a theta brain wave state.
In this stage we observe everything and learn how
to act and respond to the things around us.
At that age we're very impressionable and those
are the years when we form opinions about things
like money, health, self-confidence, and love amongst
other things that influence us for the rest of our lives.
Those are also the years limiting beliefs are formed.
Beliefs that we'll carry for years to come. Beliefs that
have the ability to hold us down.
So what now?
Now that you've identified how the little monster inside
can hold you back from success, how do you use this
information to move forward? We can't change the past,
and there's no point in trying.
Instead we can spend time focusing on
how we can change our thoughts and consciously
choose the thoughts and characteristics we want
So I encourage you to look at the areas of your
life you're looking to improve, and replace your
negative thoughts/statements with positive ones.
So instead of saying "I can't pay my bills," say
"I pay my bills in full every month." Repeat this
everyday… and then one day, it'll be your reality.
You'll be programming yourself for success through
I look forward to hearing about the progress you make,
and how you'll turn your little monster into your
To your abundantly fulfilling life
P.S. I hope you've gained something positive from
my personal experience story :)
