I spent the first half of my life holding the limiting belief that I'm not athletic, and this belief determined what I was capable of.
One day I challenged this belief and suddenly was able to traverse the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim-to-rim—hiking over fifty miles from one side of the canyon to the other, and then back again, during the span of a two-day period—and all it took was a change in my beliefs.
Well, it also took a commitment to a healthy lifestyle and regular psychical activity, but I was only able to make this commitment once I believed in myself.
Your beliefs have implications for every aspect of your life:
1. What beliefs might be holding you back?
2. What shift in thinking can push you forward?
Personally, I've been doing a lot of challenging of my own beliefs, about who I am, about my talents, about my mission, about how I view my role in the lives of others, and about my perspective of the state of the world. It's a healthy practice, and I encourage you to join me in this quest.
