Beliefs = Thoughts = Emotions = Actions = Outcome
Beliefs are core personal truths. Unfortunately, a lot of our beliefs are acquired and our sub-conscious mind cannot determine if it is true or not. The problem arises when what you believe in as true is not entirely true or opposite of who you are. Then it becomes a Limiting Belief. (TFMT, Stage 0)
Have you heard of this before?
I heard about this 10 years ago when I subscribed to Bro. Bo Sanchez’ Truly Rich Club (TRC). Heck, I can still hear his voice and stories about it. But.. it didn’t made sense then.
What I learned today made those teachings sink in.
That I have tons of Limiting Beliefs that, well, limits myself from achieving success.
One of them is this:
“I don’t take an action to any courses I attended because I will fail on following up anyway.”
I am drafting a few of my limiting beliefs here for accountability and re-wiring my brain to think otherwise:
“I will be in charge of taking an and I will welcome failure because it will set me up for success later on.”
I am a procrastinator. I will delay taking an action as long as I can and get away by not doing anything. Heck, I jump from one courses to another but never implemented any of the learnings I get from them.
Come on, I even subscribed to TRC ten (10) years ago but I’m still chasing pavements–err–success up to now (chanelling my inner Adelle).
I am terrified to take an action because I might fail. Then I’ll be frustrated and disappointed at myself for not doing anything. I felt horrible.
But here’s the back story:
When I was in college, I encountered a terror professor in Audit 101.
Everyone said that this professor is giving away 5.0 (Fail). Her words in class will always be peppered with harsh remarks like “bobo” (idiot), etc.
I don’t really remember hearing it from her but I remember hearing it from her past students and how they repeated the subject and never graduated on time because of her.
Then I remember feeling afraid of attending the class and getting mean comments from her. I remember having a hard time understanding Audit theories.
I ended up getting the dreaded 5.0 grade, getting summer classes and not graduating on time.
I ended up believing that I am up to no good because I failed her class.
I ended up taking board exam reviews but hated Audit and thought that I’ll fail because of this subject.
I tried the board exam once (after attending a couple of reviews) but I never finished the exam proper.
From then on, I don’t want to go back to school or take licensure exams of any sort.
However, I learned from Robert Kiyosaki that education is important.
So up to this day, I enrolled to several courses but never applied any of the lessons because I think I will fail.
F*cked up, right?
And that, my friend, is my limiting belief.
