Transcend Your Limiting Beliefs

When I began to take this research of social dynamics publicly and connecting with others on the web, TSBMag was one of the vert first sites I came across. It was a very fun little site to check out guys talk about all different kinds of things like being the man on campus, women, cool toys, being a man, self-help, life principles and other just fun things.

Now it is a very highly-regarded blog and I am happy to have been able to watch its growth. Bobby, Mike and Pete are all cool people and if you haven't seen the site yet, please check it out. They have amazing articles and they talk a lot about life principles and maximizing your potential, things that I love!

Bobby started a series called "the Success Principles," and it comes from a course ran by Jack Canfield. There are 64 principles and if you want to check them all out, I would suggest starting from the very start.

For now, I am going to post one of the many awesome ones. Principle 33: Transcend Your Limiting Beliefs. This is a lot about reframing your mind to get rid to the negatives that stop you from doing something and finally believing that you can by creating positive and affiming statements that reflect this belief.

This is something you can do now! So, check it out and please continue to follow my ode to my inspirations.

Also, I'd love to find out what are some of your inspirations. Shoot me an email and I'll post some of them here as well! I love learning all different kinds of things and have no problem posting them up here! Let me know!

Here's the article:

This next article is part of an ongoing series here at TSB Magazine called The Success Principles. The series is based on the 64 principles laid out by Jack Canfield in his course of the same name. If you’re new, I always suggest starting any series from the beginning.

Principle 33: Transcend Your Limiting Beliefs

The idea of eliminating or transcending negative beliefs seems to creep into many of the principles throughout this series. I think there is good reason for that. You are ultimately defined by your beliefs. If you have limiting beliefs… you are, in fact, limited.

Many of us carry a deep rooted belief that we are not capable of achieving our goal. Whether the goal is to make a million dollars, lose weight, find a girlfriend, or write a book, for whatever reason, we believe that there is something inherent in us that will prevent us from achieving the goal. Even after going through over 30 lessons in this series, many of you may still believe that you do not have the will power, education, connections, determination, or intelligence to achieve success.

Many of these beliefs have unconsciously been thrust upon us throughout our lives. Sometimes it was a parent, sometimes classmates or peers who put little seeds of inferiority and doubt into your mind. In order to fully succeed it is necessary that you banish these beliefs and replace them with new empowering beliefs.

You need to shift from thinking “I’m not capable” to the thoughts “I can do this” “If other people have accomplished this so can I” and “I am capable.”

This is the final piece of the puzzle. On the surface is seems so incredibly easy. But transcending these limiting beliefs may be the biggest struggle you will ever have to over come.

How to Overcome Any Limiting Belief

Canfield gives a good formula for overcoming these beliefs:

1. Identify a limiting belief that you want to change. Start by making a list of any beliefs you have that might be limiting to you.

2. Determine how the belief limits you.

3. Decide how you want to be, act, or feel.

4. Create a turnaround statement that affirms or gives you permission to be, act, or feel this new way.

Once you have created a new belief- your turnaround statement- you will need to implant it in your subconscious mind through constant repetition several times per day for a minimum of 30 days. Use the affirmation techniques we discussed in Principle 10, Release the Breaks.
