We are born with a clean slate, no beliefs in place, yet we all have thousands of beliefs. We learned them from our parents, media, peers among other avenues. We adopted them. We rarely question them, we just accept them. A limited belief is a belief that you just accept and don't question, yet it blocks your path and you may be completely unaware. I can give countless examples. Some believe that because of the economy we won't make a lot of money. Some believe they can't make money in a competitive market. Some believe the only way to make money is to work very hard. There are countless more. What if these beliefs just aren't true? I can only give you my own example. This forum has been very very educational and helpful to me. I have gained much here and still do. I didn't take all the advice though as I realize that much advice that we give is based on our own experience of success and failures and the truth is no two people are alike. In other words most all of us give advice based on our own belief system. Take the belief you have to build a list to ever get anywhere in internet or affiliate marketing. I really don't like those automated emails I get and I get a lot. To me it's just not very personal and every time I open one, I know someone is going to be attempting to sale me something. So I tossed that belief in the wind. It didn't serve me. I have found success without that list and almost zero email marketing with a very few exceptions. Then I remember being told the goal is to have your own website and that was the only way to big money. Again, not true. I have heard you have to have a plan and a schedule. I have neither. I have heard that you should hold onto your money and save, but I have found that when my fists are clinched and not giving, that there is no way I have room for more money in my hands. The one that sticks in my mind the most though is how many times I heard you shouldn't use Squidoo as one of your main sources of income, it should just be a backlink to your site. Again, I choose not to believe this and again proved this not to be true. Limited beliefs carry over into all areas of our lives, not just work at home business. My moral here, there is so many many ways to skin this cat. It's not just one way or the other. When you wrap your mind around this and let go of your limited beliefs, your mind begins to entertain some pretty creative ventures and doors begin to open that you didn't even know were there before. Some may disagree and that's okay, but I challenge you to examine a few of your beliefs and ask yourself what if this just isn't true at all? Do any of you have examples of limited beliefs that you have discovered just weren't serving you?
