30 LIMITING BELIEFS THAT
PREVENT BUSINESS SUCCESS
How Much Are Success Blocks Holding You Back? Take the Quiz to Find Out.
As business guru Marie Forleo says, “80% of success is psychology and 20% is mechanics.”
What that means is that unless you master your mindset, you won't even come close to achieving what you're truly capable of in your business.
That means A LOT of money left on the table, A LOT of potential clients and customers missing out on the amazingness that you have to offer, and A LOT of your potential remaining untapped and unfulfilled.
I know that's not what you want, so I invite you to take this opportunity to master your mindset now. And the fastest, most effective way to do that is to remove your success blocks.
The most common type of success block is limiting beliefs. And not just limiting beliefs about business.
As you’ll see from the list below, all kinds of limiting beliefs keep people from achieving their business goals. Below are the ones I’ve seen the most often in my 14 years of coaching.
“Whether you think you can or think you can't,
you're right.” ~ Henry Ford
HOW TO BENEFIT FROM THIS EXERCISE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
To make sure that limiting beliefs aren’t squelching your earning power, take 2 minutes to read through these beliefs, and identify the ones that resonate with you. This simple exercise could literally change your life, so give yourself this time. You deserve it!
You may notice that even though you don’t agree with a particular belief, it resonates with you emotionally. If that happens, that’s an indication that the belief is your emotional truth, and as such, it can and will have a detrimental effect on your earning potential.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that with the right resources, any limiting belief can be overcome.
The best way to determine if you have the belief is to ask yourself the following question:
On a scale of 0 to 10, how true does this statement FEEL to me?
If the answer is anything other than 0, that means that you believe the statement to some extent, and if you believe it, it is holding you back on some level.
THE BELIEF STATEMENTS
Pick the number between 0 and 10 which represents how true each statement feels for you. If you don’t agree with the statement, but it feels true for you on some level, circle the number that best matches that feeling. 0 means it doesn’t feel true for you at all, and 10 means it feels 100% true.

Identifying which of the above limiting beliefs feel true for you (and to what extent), is a huge step toward breaking free from them so that they can no longer hinder your ability to achieve your business goals.
Now you just need to release the beliefs, as well as uncover, identify, and heal their origins.
