I’m Not Smart Enough

Hope4Families September 2, 2021

In the last lesson, you learned how to let others help you reach your goals faster and easier. But even with the help of others, you could be severely limiting yourself if you think that you’re not smart enough.

This limiting belief has the potential to keep you from trying many new things. You feel like you’re not smart enough to achieve a particular task or goal. Like you don’t have the necessary intelligence to accomplish what you truly want to accomplish. Like you’re lacking the needed knowledge to get something done. 

Maybe this belief was instilled in you from a young age by an unkind adult. Maybe you struggled with particular tasks in school which made you assume that you just weren’t a smart person. Or maybe you heard your parents say this about themselves. 

Your limiting belief is that you aren’t smart enough to do what you really want to do. 

This belief can keep you from even trying to do new things. You can feel so intimidated at the thought of trying to learn something new that you won’t even start. You feel like your supposed lack of knowledge is a handicap and that if you were only smarter you could do what you wanted.
