Which Beliefs are Holding You Back?


Beliefs are just thoughts that we have repeated over time and which have become hard-wired into our subconscious minds. Some of these beliefs will be nurturing, while others will hinder those positive changes we wish to make in our lives. But figuring out which beliefs are causing problems can be difficult.

One good way to determine negative beliefs is to try affirming an opposite belief. Go through the list of positive concepts below, saying each of the sample affirmations for each one. As you do, pay close attention to how each affirmation makes you feel. If this is a belief that your subconscious mind accepts as true, you will feel comfortable saying the affirmation. But if it makes you feel anxious or uncomfortable, it is usually a good sign that a negative belief is present.

For each of the following belief concepts, I have included three typical affirmations which could be used to reprogram the subconscious mind. For an extensive list of affirmations, simply click on the belief title.
