I’ve been reading Gay Hendricks’ The Big Leap and in his opening chapter, he talks about something that strikes at the core of what we’re focusing on this month in Soul Confidence (Releasing Limiting Beliefs).
When asking whether or not the reader is willing to feel good and have their life go well all the time, he says: ”
…for many of us, the idea of all of this positive emotion seems far-fetched to begin with. It is easy for us to just assume that with the positive comes the negative.
He goes on to talk about limiting beliefs:
In my life I’ve discovered that if I cling to the notion that something’s not possible, I’m arguing in favor of limitation. And if I argue for my limitations, I get to keep them. Ultimately, we have to ask ourselves, “What’s the payoff for arguing forcefully for our limitations?”
And then closes out with some serious self-reflection material:
…having the willingness to feel good and have life go well all the time is a genuinely radical act…going into your inner depths, where your most deeply held beliefs about what’s possible reside, counts in my book as a radical act. If we think it’s even remotely possible to feel good all the time and have life go well all the time, we owe it to ourselves to find out how many of us can do it.
What are your beliefs about having it all?
What do you believe about being able to feel good and have your life go well?
Are you willing to allow your whole life to go well?
Your answers to these questions are so important, as they will determine exactly what you manifest in your life.
Our limiting beliefs are not always things like, “I’m fat,” “I’m poor,” or “I’m unworthy,” — they can be well-intentioned. They can cloak themselves as things like, “I already have so much in my life, I should be happy with what I have,” or, “Everyone has to compromise.”
You do not have to compromise on your life.
You can have it all.
You have the capacity to feel good and have your whole life go well at the same time.
Call yourself out.
Release the bullshit beliefs that keep you small and compromising on the life you’re meant for.
Good enough isn’t good enough.
Be brave enough to release your beliefs that limit you from becoming the highest version of yourself.
