Back in 2020 when I was looking for my love partner, I thought I was too old for the men in my age group.
I thought that they were looking for younger women, or that because I was successful, men would be intimidated.
I had to overcome these negative thoughts, which I realized were connected to a deeper belief... that I wasn't good enough.??
So I decided to work on my limiting beliefs around worthiness and release them for good.
That's when I was able to surrender into a beautiful and loving relationship.
I'm sharing this with you because you may be working towards a goal right now and experiencing similar internal blockages.
Whether it’s love, career, or money – your thoughts will determine if you succeed or fail.
And if your thoughts are not serving your highest good and aren't helping you get to where you want to be -
Then it’s more than likely that they are connected to a limiting belief.
Often these beliefs come in different shapes and forms and it’s difficult to be aware of them if you don’t know where to look.
This is why today, I want to show you 3 sneaky ways the unworthiness limiting belief is showing up in your life and how to overcome it.
1. Not asking for what you want.
Do you find it hard to ask for what you want? Asking for what you want in business or personal relationships can seem daunting or selfish for a lot of people.
But every time you put your needs aside to please others, you chip away at your self-confidence. You’re essentially saying to yourself “What I want doesn’t matter”.
And if this keeps happening, it translates to "I'm not worth it".
The truth is, asking for what you want isn’t about being selfish. Instead, it’s setting clear boundaries about what you deserve and desire in any situation.
And just like how setting boundaries is important to keep yourself safe, speaking up for what you want is healthy too.
2. Apologizing too much.
Have you ever paused to count how frequently the words "I'm sorry" escape your lips in a day, almost involuntarily?
Are you aware that uttering these words excessively can wield a detrimental influence on both you and your life?
Certainly, there's no harm in apologizing when you've genuinely made a mistake.
This practice can be remarkably humbling and essential.
However, when "I'm sorry" becomes a habit, its impact shifts. It might inadvertently project a perception of weakness or diminished self-assurance.
Next time, instead of apologizing, express how grateful you are for the other person; this will make them feel appreciated instead of making them feel that they have to reassure you.
Or, next time you need to vent or share your feelings, try saying “Thank you for listening to me,” instead of “Sorry for venting”.
Do you see the difference?
3. Holding on to toxic people or things.
Do you often struggle to say NO to things and people that don't serve you? As human beings, we are wired for love. We want to find love.
We want to love and be loved. And even though love is what we all long and thirst for, for some strange reason, many people end up in relationships that are anything but healthy, happy, fulfilling, and loving.
The thing is, without a clear vision of how you would want your life to look – and if you're disconnected from your own heart and love for yourself, you’ll likely settle for less than you're worth, or end up in a toxic relationship.
This is why, saying ‘NO’ to the things that don’t serve us helps to build confidence in ourselves.
Because it’s a way of saying: I am important. My goals are important. Making myself happy long-term is important.
