Limiting Beliefs: 5 Mindsets That Are Holding You Back
Sunday, 03 January 2021

Your limiting beliefs and mindsets are what hold you back from achieving your goals. It’s easy to self-sabotage your own success with a passive or active negative attitude. The "what-ifs" add up to a perspective fuelled by doubt and nothing else.

It’s easy to let these mindsets get the best of you. And due to these subconscious thoughts, you’re unable to commit to your work and progress with it. Most of these thoughts have become second nature for some, so it’s hard to pinpoint that they’re actually not right.
Today, we’ll be discussing such mindsets and the way you can overcome them. Let’s take a look.

1. I am not qualified enough for this job

Imposter syndrome can often make you feel unworthy or unqualified for some tasks. The reality is that it’s your self-doubting nature that is stopping you from soaring high. You’re just as qualified as any other candidate, and by understanding that you can conquer the world.
You don’t have to be perfect or the cookie-cutter fit for any job. You grow and learn from experience, and the only way to do that is to be up for the challenge. If you’re waiting to be “perfect for the job,” then the opportunity might slip. So, take it up while you can and finesse your skills while you’re at it.

2. It’s possible for everyone else, not for me

Low self-esteem is the culprit behind this mindset. It makes you believe that everyone around is more deserving of getting the job than you are. Your subconscious beliefs fuel this fallacy that you’re lacking something that everyone else has.
The fact of the matter is that you are just as capable of getting the task done as they are. You need to shift your mindset from “I can’t” to “Why can’t I?” because you will strive to achieve your goals and ambitions.

3. I don’t have the time to do it

This mindset inhibits you from trying out new things daily. Due to this ideology, you delude yourself into believing that you don’t have enough time to try new ventures and hold yourself back from growing and learning.
To overcome this, you need to first set your priorities straight about what you want to achieve at a specific time. Then channelize your energy to develop sharper focusing and concentration skills. You will then realize that there is plenty of time to accomplish the things you need.

4. I will be judged for doing this

The fear of being judged stems from human nature itself. It’s the fear of being scrutinized for your moves and your actions. But you need to realize that the people judging you are not the ones that will determine your success.
Beware of the fact that whatever people say does not diminish the quality of your work. People will criticize you all your life,and the only way to go about it is by understanding that you can’t please everyone. The best thing to do is work according to your own beliefs and remain firm on them.

5. What if I fail?

Self-doubt has held back so many people from following their dreams. Fear of failure is normal, but letting it get the best of you will prevent you from moving forward in your life.
You need to be firm with your ideas and know that it’s okay to learn and grow from them even if you fail. Failure is an inevitable part of life. Better to embrace it rather than fearing it endlessly.


By getting rid of pessimistic mindsets, you can actually flourish in your field. Try to rid yourself of self-doubt and embrace the future that is yet to come.
