Lots of men and women that are seriously interested in self improvement and making positive changes have difficulty making the progress and getting the results they need.
There may be several reasons for this, but one common issue is that some individuals have become so conditioned in their thinking that, though they need success, their deeply held beliefs and conditioning may actually sabotage their best efforts.
The environment we grow up in, and the influences we’re exposed to as children have a enormous effect on the thinking, even when we are not conscious of it. The opinions of our parents, family and friends affect our beliefs and expectations, as do countless other sources like education, religion, television, movies, newspapers, radio and much more.
If we develop in an environment where money is always scarce and making ends meet is a continuous struggle, we can easily come to believe that this is the way of the world. We might seriously desire much greater achievement, but in a subconscious level, we could actually hold ourselves back by inflict self limiting beliefs and expectations on ourselves.
The press only compounds these beliefs. How many movies are there featuring stereotypes like’poor but honest and hard working people’ who’ve been used and abused in some way from the’wealthy and corrupt millionaire”? Everyone loves an underdog and these stories can be quite entertaining, but they also reinforce the belief that monetary success and sound moral values are mutually exclusive.
There are lots of resources available from Self Improvement Experts to help overcome any self limiting beliefs that could hold us back. Facing up to and beating our conditioned beliefs may be among the main actions we take for our success and happiness.
