“It can’t be done” is never the truth. What people really are saying when they utter these words is: “I don’t how how to do it.”  Or, “it can’t be done the way we’ve always tried in the past.”  Or, “it can’t be done according to the only way I can think of doing it.” Here’s why “it can’t be done” is never an accurate statement, no matter what you are referring to... But doing something that has never been done before, that most people think is impossible isn’t that easy.  It takes guts.  It requires us to ignore the naysayers and not fear failure.  Unfortunately most of us are all too willing to accept “it can’t be done” both from others and from ourselves. Steve Jobs didn’t accept it.  Ever.

Most people assume that they are living their lives consciously, dreaming about their intentions and goals and living life accordingly. However, research now suggests that 95 to 99% of our cognitive activity comes from the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind allows us to walk, speak, and perform other automatic tasks without having to think about it. The subconscious mind has accumulated years of habitual programming that we are not even aware of.

If you follow these tips, you will be able to find at least some of the beliefs that cause specific problems... If you eliminate all the beliefs that usually cause a lack of confidence, for example, you also will be eliminating all the beliefs that cause several other problems, such as procrastination, social anxiety, fear of rejection, seeking approval, perfectionism, high levels of stress, and the critical “little voice” in our heads.

"What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know. It's what we know for sure that just ain't so." Mark Twain. Morty Lefkoe addresses the nature of self-limiting beliefs and how to overcome them in his programs of The Lefkoe Insitute. In this article, he explains, "There are things you don’t know that you don’t know.  And that fact, perhaps more than any other single thing, is keeping you from having the best life you could possibly have.

"You are a product of all of the thoughts you have thought, feelings you have felt, and actions you have taken up until now." Jack Canfield  //  Sometimes you've got to let everything go...purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything...whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.  Tina Turner

Why do so many people believe that they have to put in a lot of time and effort—and then need a lot of reinforcement—in order to produce a lasting change in their life? People hold this belief because they have tried unsuccessfully to change a variety of things in their lives, such as eating junk food, not sticking to an exercise program, getting into relationships they know are bad for them, having negative feelings like anger and anxiety, and procrastination.  When I ask clients what they have done to produce change in the past, I get a litany of answers: therapy, books, workshops, hypnosis, EFT, NLP, willpower, support systems, etc.

When I told psychologist Lawrence LeShan about 20 years ago that I had created a process that permanently eliminated beliefs, he replied: “Anyone who claims to do that is a fraud.” Despite the fact that LeShan, most other psychotherapists, and the average person think that getting rid of beliefs permanently is very difficult, if not impossible, I have thousands of clients whose experience proves otherwise.

You have a companion. One that never, ever leaves you. It sticks with you, staying even closer than your shadow. It is like a leech sucking your blood, and you cannot shake it loose. This constant companion is your mental chatter... an unending stream of noise. But you will also discover that much of it is putting you down, either directly or, more subtly, by having you compare yourself unfavorably to others. And it is exhausting you by telling you all the things you have to do that you probably will not be able to.

By James LeGrand.  Procrastination, perfectionism, and denial are the enemies of action. When we know there is something major we must do, many of us all of a sudden find 10 other things that we think we need to do right now. We’d rather not act and wait until we have everything perfectly laid out than to begin making strides towards resolution. Geniuses act. They act now, they act swiftly, and they act with confidence.

By Maya Bailey, Ph.D. -- Why do most business owners fail to achieve their dreams and reach their financial goals? Is it a lack of motivation, a lack of drive or a lack of business know how? In my 12 years of coaching business owners to double and triple their incomes, I have found that none of the above is the reason they fail. Instead, it is the presence of self-limiting beliefs, many of which are hidden, that stop business owners in their tracks.
