Overcoming Self-Limiting Beliefs – Henry’s Story


Let me share with you a story about Henry who consumed with self-limiting beliefs was not able to live a productive life.

Bob Proctor calls these “Paradigms”, a set of beliefs and habits that we all have consciously or subconsciously. 

These paradigms are internalized as fact. Here are Bob Proctor’s top 19 most common self-limiting beliefs that can block or limit your success.

  1. I’m too old or too young
  2. I’ll believe it when I see it
  3. I don’t have the money or resources
  4. I can’t
  5. I don’t have enough time
  6. I’ll never break through my income ceiling
  7. Change is too hard
  8. Not trying is better than failing
  9. I’ll never be successful
  10. I don’t deserve nice things
  11. There’s no point in dreaming big
  12. I’ll always be broke
  13. I don’t have the right education or experience
  14. I’m not important
  15. I’m not ready
  16. I’m not strong enough
  17. Everything is fine as it is
  18. I wasn’t born into the right kind of family
  19. I don’t deserve to be happy

Henry isolated himself on a property away from everyone. He was content living on his own with his dogs until a situation caused him to leave. That is when I met Henry and we began working together.

Henry had a lot of paradigms to work through such as “I’m too old, I don’t have enough money, It’s too hard” and many others. He was also taking prescribed anti-depressants and pain killers.

Even when Henry was given opportunities to talk and interact with people he would decline. As his Coach I believed in him and continued to give him strategies and tools to overcome his self-limiting beliefs.

Over time and with support and encouragement, Henry has ventured out into the world and embraced the new life opportunities.

He is now part of a community, open to meeting people and is no longer taking anti-depressants and pain killers. Most importantly, Henry is loving his life and making the most of his opportunities.

By becoming aware of his limiting beliefs, Henry approaches situations in a positive way today.

Self-limiting beliefs can hold you back from achieving the life you would absolutely love living.

Working with me, Henry became aware of his own self-limiting beliefs. He also embraced new strategies to improve his relationships, his health and lifestyle.

Are you suffering like Henry? Would you like to increase your own sense of awareness to live a life you would absolutely love?
