Everyone can probably remember moments in their lives when they felt confident, capable, and on top of the world – and where things just seemed to “flow” and go right, in a very rewarding and engaging way.
Unfortunately, though, it’s uncommon – at least for most of us – for this kind of situation to be constant, and the sense of confidence and boundless capability are often seriously undermined by day-to-day insecurities, and perceived limitations.
In life, various unfortunate things can occur that can undermine our sense of well-being and poise, including issues serious enough to require us to consult with a personal injury law firm.
The more you let your perceived limitations hold you back, however, the less likely you are to routinely experience those moments of thriving and growth that can make life so thrilling.
Here are some tips for not letting your perceived limitations hold you back.
Practice activities like meditation that help to give you a bit of distance from your thoughts
One of the major issues that can occur whenever you are trying to consistently move forward and prevent yourself from being trapped by your own perceived limitations, is the simple issue of proximity. In other words, you are likely to find that you are “too close” to your own beliefs and issues to really get a more nuanced perspective on them.
Fortunately, there are a number of different practices you can undertake which can help to give you a bit more distance from your thoughts, and to begin challenging your self limiting beliefs, as opposed to automatically taking them for granted on a subconscious level.
Various meditation practices, in particular, are well-known for their ability to help in this regard – but even things like having a chat with someone close to you for a few minutes, or spending time on some creative endeavour, may help.
Continually take action, try new things, and pursue different projects
One of the more insidious things that happens when we allow ourselves to get dominated by our self limiting beliefs, is the fact that this can prevent us from taking action, trying new things, and accumulating new experiences which can serve as the basis for updated belief structures.
If you allow yourself to fall into the trap of ceasing to take action, your perceived limitations will tend to grow more entrenched, as a result.
On the other hand, if you push yourself to continually take action, to try new things, and to pursue different projects and experiences, it becomes much easier to consistently question and reevaluate your assumptions, and your sense of just what you’re capable of.
Adopt daily practices that help to bust stress and aid wellbeing
Generally speaking, if you are highly stressed out, you’re likely to be more pessimistic and paranoid, and less likely to be outgoing and adventurous.
Coming up with daily practices that can help to bust stress and aid well-being – whether that’s relaxing with some essential oils, or listening to some uplifting music – can therefore be very helpful.
