Limiting beliefs... Review and challenge them regularly

Limiting beliefs can be helpful or helped us to be safe at some point in our lives, but they can also limit us in the here and now.

Examples of limiting beliefs are...

  • I am not good enough
  • I am significant only if I achieve
  • I am significant only if I look good
  • I can’t do this 
  • I am not good at this
  • I am useless
  • Nobody loves me
  • People will leave me in the end
  • You can’t trust people
  • Things have to be done perfectly or not at all
  • If you do something wrong, you must be punished 

As Family Doctors, we try and help people review these limiting beliefs regularly, and challenge, defuse or detach from them if it does not serve a good purpose for us anymore.
