I know you’ve heard the phrase, “You’re standing in your own way.” However, that isn’t exactly true. In my experience, I have found that misconceptions have been the ones that have gotten in my way over the years.
I like to tell people about what I discovered when I found the origin of the term “information.” The word comes from Middle English and originally meant “a forming of the mind.”
When you are operating with misconceptions, it is impossible to make the correct decisions or steps towards the life you want.
I’m going to share with you how some of mine slowed down my success.
Misconceptions can make you miss out on love and money
To start, misconceptions nearly cost me financial success. And more importantly, I almost missed out on an incredible marriage because of them.
First, let’s talk about how my limiting beliefs about money held me back. You may have some of the same ones as well.
I thought things like “money is the root of all evil.” Another one was that I thought money would change me, so I kept myself from getting too much of it!
My misconceptions kept me from working at my full potential.
I urge you to let any similar ideas go.
Furthermore, misconceptions can keep you from more than just material things. I had ideas about relationships and love that almost kept me from marrying Grant.
I thought that I couldn’t rely on a partner for anything. So when Grant tried to support me, I would get upset. And at the same time, I wanted all the romance and attention when we were newlyweds.
How contradictory is that?
In conclusion, you need to take an honest look at your beliefs about any area of your life you want to be successful. This is especially true if things are not going as quickly or smoothly as they should.
Look and see if you have any misconceptions in your way — then throw them in the trash.
