Are you limiting your life?

Have you ever heard yourself say to yourself, “I’m just too old” or “I’m not made out of money! I can’t afford that” or “I’m not good enough…

There was a story I heard once where the conversation was about how powerful a positive mindset can be. Talking about the limiting belief that as we get older, life slows down, we were told about a minister who at 78 still led an active community with his wife, who at 68, became an ordained minister. Neither this couple nor the famous athlete Jackie Joyner Kersee let age stop them from living a life full out.

Age is just one limiting belief. Many of us were raised with many limiting beliefs around money with sayings like “money doesn’t grow on trees”.  Or maybe you were told you’d never amount to anything or something worse.

Whatever the limited thinking, that same old thought could possibly stop you from living a life well deserved.  We are given one precious life and it’s your choice to make the most of it.

If we think we are old, we are.  If we think we are sick, we can make that so too. Feeling unlovable only causes you to love yourself less.  A poor mindset never gets rich. Often it’s our thinking that keeps us from the very things we desire most.  The good news is we have the power to change it all!

What if we blew those thoughts out of the water and focused on things like unlimited possibilities, happiness, prosperity, good health?  Like a wise sage once said, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.

Today, consider what limiting belief is running you.  Why not change your thought and change your life?
