Last week after we published our Money podcast, we received a fair amount of feedback. With one exception, it was all positive. In the exception, the letter writer talked about limiting beliefs. So we’ve decided to do this week’s article on that very subject.
Here are the comments from the person talking about limiting beliefs:
“In today’s podcast it is said that creating wealth is as ‘simple’ as giving up limiting beliefs, but come on: this IS the crux of the problem!! No one DELIBERATELY holds on to limiting beliefs, yet relinquishing them, overcoming programming, is NEVER EVER a simple matter. Can Spirit say ANYTHING about this that is not glib, banal, facile, dismissive, but instead, truly helpful?” (Emphasis is the letter writer’s.)
And here’s another email, asking a simple question:
“And now, (can you give us) assistance in removing limiting beliefs?”
That’s the question the first letter writer was apparently asking, although not directly. She did, however, clarify her intent in a follow-up email. It’s a good question.
You may remember a poll I took a while ago. I asked all of you, our newsletter subscribers, if you preferred long or short newsletters. The overwhelming majority voted for short. You said you don’t have the time or desire to read long articles. So we keep them short.
We’ve applied the same policy to our podcasts, and also keep them short.
The result of this policy is we cannot fully explore any given issue in one newsletter or podcast. That upsets some people, but most understand and don’t complain or criticize.
However, we’re always willing to do follow-up articles or podcasts if enough of you ask us to.
You don’t need to analyze your so-called limiting beliefs. You don’t need to know all their origins. You’ll drive yourselves crazy trying to sort all that out. Besides, none of it matters.
What does matter is how you are feeling in this present moment. If you are feeling good, you are letting in those things you want. If you’re feeling bad, you’re not letting them in.
It really is that simple.
All your power is right here and now, in this present moment. No past limiting belief can rob you of your power.
You humans have this strange habit of making life complicated and hard because you believe that is the only way you can achieve anything worthwhile. You know — that saying you have, “No pain, no gain.”
That, friends, is the ultimate limiting belief.
Feeling good, looking for things to appreciate, choosing good-feeling thoughts — these are the sure-fire keys to improving your lives and living your dreams.
Then you won’t be so concerned about ridding yourselves of limiting beliefs. You will have automatically rid yourselves of them by simply deciding nothing is more important than feeling good, feeling passion, loving your life in the present moment.
Look for things to appreciate in yourselves, in your lives, in other people, in the world around you.
That is the key to ridding yourselves of limiting beliefs. And it really is so simple!
