This reality isn't a fixed thing, it is an image we have in our minds. An image that we can change for the better, achieving success and happiness in life.
You may not even be aware of such self-limiting beliefs, but certainly they are there inside. Here are an example of a few fixed false beliefs many people have -
- Money: Sayings like "you have to work extremely hard to achieve financial success" or even worse "Money is not for me.".
- Time: "Its too late to start" You never to old to start with something new. Age is just a number.
- Mind: "I am not intelligent or smart enough."
- Social: "I am not good with people. Or "I don't have enough time."
