5 Limiting Beliefs That Will Halt Your Success



5 Limiting Beliefs That Will Halt Your Success

It might come to you as a surprise if you are told that you are full of limiting beliefs. Don’t take it personally, because everyone, including me, has their fair share of limiting beliefs.

A limiting belief is what keeps us from reaching our goals. It fills us with pessimism, negative self talk, and doubt. In short, it keeps us from truly living the life of our dreams.

Every time you hope to achieve something, what gets in your way? Is it timing, resources, luck, or a busy schedule? More often than not, it’s just the belief that you need to go for it and go for it now! Even if you can’t dig up what you want just yet, there’s no reason not to find a shovel and get to work! Stop procrastinating!

Here are the 5 most popular limiting beliefs that keep us from pursuing our passions:

1. I know I will fail

You remember that time you failed on your exam? What happened next? I’m sure the world didn’t end there. Even if you were required to repeat a course or do it again, you eventually passed, didn’t you? That’s exactly how it works in real life. So, instead of thinking to yourself, “I know I will fail”, think again and wonder, “What’s the worst that could happen?”

“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.” – Dennis P. Kimbro

2. I will start tomorrow

Forget about that perfect moment for pursuing your passion. Life is short and time is limited. Hours, days, and years will go by and you may still feel that you have to wait for some magical moment or the right time. News flash: that moment will never come unless you make it! Instead of waiting, live with the belief that time is limited. You don’t have forever so it’s either now or never.


3. People won’t understand

First of all, someone who truly cares about you would be highly reluctant to keep you from pursuing your dream (unless, of course it could be deadly!). The right people would encourage you, because they understand you and your need to go for it. Or perhaps, they fear that you might leave them behind or will expose their fears. Whichever the case, remember that not everyone has to understand what you are doing because you are not doing it for them. You’re doing it for you, and that’s just how it should be. As Lao Tzu once said, “Care about what other people think, and you will always be their prisoner.”


4. I don’t know where to start

Even the most famous scientists and inventors had no clue where to start when they had a mission in mind. Often times, what they started with led them to something entirely different, and sometimes, something even more valuable. Letting this belief be the reason not to start is simply an excuse. Start somewhere, anytime, and anywhere. Even if you don’t get it right the first time, you’ll know what to do next, and then next, and so on. The chain will continue until you have finally reached the point you had in mind.

“Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.” – William James

5. I don’t have the resources

We often limit ourselves to reach our goals by using available resources as an excuse. You may feel that you don’t have the money, qualifications, or skills necessary for the job and these are “obstacles” you can’t overcome. But who says “resources” can’t be gained? In other words, who says skills, education, or money can’t be acquired? With internal resources such as willpower, focus, energy, and passion; external resources are just a step away.

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.
