What are Limiting Beliefs?
As children people often develop values and beliefs based on the cultural tradition and family morals that they are bought up with. However, these beliefs can often that can fall short in the validity department due to changing contemporary values and culture.
The beliefs we established as children were often established according to a different set of circumstances and situations that we now find our selves in as we grow into adults. But, because we love our family, culture and, more often than not, enjoyed our childhood and upbringing, we think our beliefs to be imbued with an innate wisdom and truth that transcends our contemporary situation. We decide that the ways of our parents and ancestors served them well all their lives (or so it seems) and so we instinctively fall under the illusion that what worked for them should work for me. It is a subconscious decision but essentially we accept the truths and perceptions of our forbears as our own reality.
