Where do limiting beliefs come from?
I believe I know the answer to that question. Before I share with you the answer, let me tell you a story.
When I was young
As a kid, whenever someone pays me a compliment, my mom would never accept it.
In fact, sometimes she would even go as far as saying the exact opposite of the compliment.
But I’ve never given it much thought.
I became a dad
Later when I have my own kids, I noticed she would say and do the same.
Now, this got me upset and so I questioned her.
Her response left me speechless.
Son, we cannot accept praises from others. We must be humble.
From our families
The very people who love us can sometimes hurt us the most.
Not because they want to.
But because of good intentions.
For me, it’s about being able to recognize where these limiting beliefs come from.
And then work towards getting them out of our subconscious mind.
