We have all had mental blocks at some point and time and have said, “I just can’t do it.” Limiting beliefs can stop us from taking action or reaching an important goal.
Most people have limiting beliefs that are tied to their identity, which constrain them from living their best life. If you think, “Well, I’m not good at math” you probably aren’t going to put in the effort to study like someone who thinks they can score a good mark on a test.
“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” — Tony Robbins
There have been several instances of people doing amazing things they would have never thought possible. Nineteen year old Charlotte Heffelmire’s father was trapped under a burning car, she used all of her strength to lift the car so her father could escape. She then drove a burning car out of her family’s garage. Most people would never believe that they have the power to lift a car and wouldn’t even try.
We are all more capable than we believe, next time someone tells you that they just can’t do something, here are a few things you can say to let the person know they are more powerful than they think.
