Are there dreams that you want to make into a reality in your life? Do you feel unfulfilled and like there has to be more to life?
Odds are, if you feel this way, you think that something is holding you back from living the life of your dreams. Maybe it seems impossibly far away. But the reality is, the thing probably holding you back the most is fear or limiting beliefs.
Many of us have limiting beliefs about ourselves, and think that we aren't worthy to live the life that we dream of. So, we let opportunities pass us by without taking hold of them. We tell ourselves that we can't do it.
This makes us feel even worse. We have let a chance go to do something that we really wanted. It cuts into our self-esteem.
So, in order to live the life of your dreams today, the first step is to start working on your fear and your limiting beliefs. You need to believe that you really are good enough. That you are worthy of the life of your dreams.
You can do this in several ways. First, is to become very aware of your thoughts. When you start to tell yourself something negative, then catch yourself. Ask if it is really true. Find evidence to the contrary.
For example, if you are thinking you aren't smart enough to get that promotion, then you would look for examples where you have shown your smarts. Use this information to realize that yes, you are smart enough for the promotion.
Then, you would say some affirmations to the contrary. Like, "I am a smart and confident person." You can say this affirmation every time that a negative thought comes to you about not being smart enough.
You can also find out where the belief is coming from. Think back to your childhood, and look for examples where someone told you this. Then, you can mentally work through that situation and realize that what you were told back then no longer applies to your current life situation.
After you work through your limiting beliefs this way, it should make you less afraid to pursue your dreams in the future. You can start setting goals for yourself and pursuing them. This will lead you into the life of your dreams.
