Self Defeating Beliefs

We all have thoughts that once we question them we understand the thoughts were irrational.

These are beliefs we have about ourselves; sometimes they can be self defeating beliefs. What is a belief? It is a perception of reality, or something you were told that you had no reason to doubt. How do you know that you have a self defeating belief? If you are feeling some way you don’t like feeling, you are probably believing something that’s not true.

Choose one limiting belief and ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I believe that?

  • Why do I believe that?

  • What seems true about that?

  • What might concern me if that belief were gone? (What might happen that I would not like?)

These questions give you a powerful starter kit for creating happiness beyond belief. Freedom from your beliefs is life changing.
