Past Failure Means Future Failure

Hope4Families September 1, 2021

In previous lessons, you discovered how time and age don’t have to limit you at all! Another belief that limits many people is, “Once a failure, always a failure.” Let’s put that belief out of its misery right now.

If you’ve ever tried and failed at something in the past, it’s easy to assume that your past failure means that you’ll fail again in the future. That past outcomes guarantee future outcomes. That you’re always doomed to fail at whatever you attempt. 

You may be tempted to think, “I always fail at this so why should this time be any different? I’m just a failure overall.”

Your limiting belief is that your past failure means future failure. You assume that the past governs the future. That if something didn’t work in previous attempts, it won’t work in the future.
