Having successfully overcome this negative belief, I am now living a much more fulfilled life.

Self-limiting beliefs often develop because of impactful events that might have taken place in our lives. Environment, upbringing and the society we are exposed to often play a huge part.

Understanding why we have these beliefs and the root cause of it can help us to reverse those beliefs much more easily.
3. Acknowledge That These Self-Limiting Beliefs are Not True
Almost all of the time, self-limiting beliefs are merely mental projections based on past experiences that are simply not true in real life.
Understand that the brain develops these beliefs as a sort of defense mechanism to help us cope with stressful events or bad experiences. These negative experiences have absolutely no effect on any of our future endeavors and should not be used as a gauge of our future potential success.
All negative limiting beliefs hold no real foundation other than the previous poor experience, and can just as easily be reversed with positive experiences in the future.
4. Empower Yourself With Positive Beliefs
To eliminate self-limiting beliefs once and for all, we need to replace them with strong positive beliefs. Consistent repetition of positive affirmations are a powerful tool for reprogramming the brain and form new, positive beliefs.
When repeating affirmations, it is important to think, feel and believe that we are the new person that we wish to become. Replacing old beliefs take time, so be persistent and don’t give up even when it feels difficult.
