16 Limiting Beliefs that Might be Holding You Back

What are your limiting beliefs?

We all have the potential to achieve the extraordinary—but often, the results we get in life don’t reflect that.

Why?

“Because,” says performance coach Tony Robbins, “our unconscious beliefs cripple our results.”

“Our nature is to only invest energy into that which we believe will produce the outcome we seek,” he explains. “Therefore, when we believe something is not going to work out—even unconsciously—we sabotage our potential by taking halfhearted action.” 

“Little action equals lousy results. Lousy results equal uncertainty and disheartened beliefs. It is a vicious cycle that only ends when you decide to change what you’re putting into it.”

Tony calls these limiting beliefs—and they are often the reason we don’t achieve what we are truly capable of.

The only thing that’s keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself. –Tony Robbins
