5 destructive beliefs

This morning I’m sharing 5 beliefs that are destructive for living and leading from a place of passion. I’d love to hear how these land for you!

1. Not good enough

My income, my health, my body, my spouse, my job…

Essentially, we’re affirming that “I’m not good enough.” Because to some degree you understand that YOU attracted all that you have to you. YOU attracted your spouse, your job, your income, your body. And so to say it’s not good enough is akin to saying “I’m not good enough.”

2. I’m not worth it

If you think about having a healthy body, a romantic relationship, a better job, or a higher income and you do everything in your power to work toward those things… why do you suppose they aren’t coming to you? Often we hold this destructive belief that “I’m not worth it.”

As in, I don’t deserve the goodies I want in life. This belief will repel what you want, and so it’s destructive to your continued success in life!

3. I can’t do it

I’m not strong enough, I don’t know enough, I can’t do it.

If this is the thought process/mantra of your mind, then it will become true for you. The “I can’t do it” belief will hold you back from every single thing you attempt to accomplish in life and you’ll not live up to your potential.

4. I am alone

I am alone is a harmful belief to have because we feel alienated in life. Truth is that we need community. Humans succeed when we have community, a hand to hold, people who are cheering us on.

I’ve ran my fair share of 5K and 10K runs, a 10 mile run, and a half marathon (with my dad!). Also, with my dad and one of my sisters, we’ve been bladders in Duluth’s NorthShore Inline Marathon and once my dad and I cross country skied the Kortelopet in northern Wisconsin.

What I learned from running, rollerblading and cross country skiing in races: yes, you reach the finish line on your own power, however you’re never alone! There are so many people running next to you, in front of you, behind you and people on the sidelines cheering you on.

If you run with your eyes closed, you may keep this belief prevalent in your life. And it may cause you to stop running.

5. It’s always been this way, it will always be this way

In the book Secrets of The Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker, he writes:

Programming ==> thinking
Thinking ==> decisions
Decisions ==> actions
Actions ==> outcomes/results

When our subconscious mind must chose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions almost always win.

The truth is that “it” WILL always be this way, if you don’t change your programming.
