Step 3: Identify Your FLBs
Before you can change anything, you must first identify what you want to change.
If you need to fix an area of your life, you need to identify the different FLBs that you have in that specific area.
But since you have many FLBs, you need to focus on those with the biggest impact. Once you can successfully address these limiting beliefs, you can easily solve the others.
My Recommended Method: Fill-in-the-blank method
This method is simple but very effective to recognize your FLBs.
To do this, describe a situation you are struggling with.
“It’s hard to start a business,” and add “because” after it and then finish the sentence.
“It’s hard to start a business because it requires an MBA degree and a big capital.”
“I cannot find love because I am not pretty.”
“It’s hard to lose weight because of my slow metabolism.”
“I am poor because my parents are poor.”
“I can’t travel because of my job.”
Don’t judge yourself when you complete these sentences but recognize that what you say after “because” is the FLB about a specific aspect of your life.
