Rewriting The Limiting Belief
Now let’s rewrite this limiting belief into an empowering belief.
- “I’m too old to accomplish anything new.”
- “My age gives me wisdom.”
- “I have more experience than those who are younger.”
- “I can avoid mistakes that younger people make.”
- “My experience will allow me to get going faster.”
- “I’m never too old to start something new.”
There are thousands of people who have achieved huge amounts of success later in life.
Joy Behar, former host of The View, didn’t start her career in show business until she was 40. Vera Wang didn’t start designing clothing until she was 40. Harland Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, was broke until he finally found success at age 65. Charles Darwin published his most famous book, The Origin of Species, at age 50.
If they can do it, surely you can too. In order to rewrite your limiting belief, you need to realize that being older gives you more wisdom. You have more to offer, a broader skill set, and more experience. This actually gives you a distinct advantage over those who are younger.
Younger people are prone to make more mistakes because they don’t have the experience that you have. This keeps them from achieving success as quickly as they might. Because you have so much experience and wisdom, you are able to achieve success more quickly because you can avoid mistakes.
Your new belief is: “I can start something new at any age. I have the experience and wisdom to achieve anything I want, regardless of my age.”
