Overcoming limiting beliefs is a challenge that we all face. Whilst working through my own beliefs list, I decided to create these limiting belief worksheets to help us overcome our limiting beliefs and take positive action to change our lives.
These limiting beliefs worksheets go through a simple 3 step reflection exercise that I used to help me clear some deep beliefs around my work and my life.
To make sure you get the most of these worksheets I’ve written a short description on each step.
1) In question one we reflect on the current 12 months of our life. Focus on where you have felt stuck or feel you are holding back in our lives and why.
The key to getting the most out of this question is to continually ask yourself why after you discover each belief. To give you the best idea of how these exercises work I will share my own personal examples. When I first answered the question, the area I was most stuck on was with my blog, podcast and personal development work. I wrote down the following:
- Feeling overwhelmed and full of self-doubt
- Feeling like I always get interrupted
When I asked myself why I was feeling this way I came up with the belief that:
- I don’t take myself seriously
Digging further by asking myself why again, I then realized that belief stemmed from the belief that:
- If I don’t earn enough money from something, then others didn’t take it seriously and therefore I didn’t take it seriously
I realized that because I didn’t take my work seriously I was often saying yes to everything and everyone before my work. I was not getting what I wanted to be done or reaching my goals because I felt others’ needs and wants came first.
2) After realizing how these beliefs were affecting my actions in life, I acknowledge it and took responsibility for it.
This step is important because it empowers us to see that despite what has happened in the past, we have the power to change it now. To affirm this, this section has a small box for you to write “I’m ready to create empowering change in my life”.
3) Now it’s time to think ahead! Where do we want to be in the future, who do we want to be? Once you’ve had a think about that write down a new beliefs list for yourself.
For example, the things I had on my beliefs list were:
- I value my ideas and passions
- Whether the money comes or not, this work is soulful and authentic to me
- I trust in myself and my voice to go in my own direction
After that, I made a shortlist of actions I needed to take to help me change my life. Some examples of the actions I’m taking are:
- Setting a better structure for my workdays such as setting office hours where I don’t do any household chores, I focus on my work!
- I make it clear to family and friends that despite working from home on Monday’s and Friday’s they are work days for me – I’m not available for catch-ups or visits during my work hours
These are simple things we can do to honor our beliefs and make the small changes we want in our lives.
