Rewriting The Limiting Belief
Now let’s rewrite this limiting belief with a set of empowering beliefs.
- “I’m not smart enough.”
- “I’ve accomplished so much already in my life.”
- “If I wasn’t smart, I wouldn’t have gotten this far in life.”
- “I have an incredible ability to learn.”
- “I can do anything I set my mind to.”
This limiting belief is false on so many levels. First and foremost, you truly are much smarter than you realize.
Think of all you’ve already accomplished in your life. If you weren’t smart, you wouldn’t have been able to achieve all that you have. Your past successes prove that you’re smarter than you think you are.
Second, you have an incredible ability to learn. Consider all the things you’ve learned to do over the course of your life. Your brain is a sponge, and you’re able to learn almost anything you set your mind to. Even if you don’t have the knowledge to accomplish a particular task, that doesn’t mean you can’t learn it.
Your new belief is that you are incredibly smart and are able to learn anything you set your mind to.
This changes the way you approach new tasks. Instead of fearing having to learn things, you eagerly anticipate the challenge. Instead of doubting yourself, you’re confident in your ability to tackle any task. You know that you’re very smart and that no task is too complicated for you to learn.
