The first step to beating these limiting beliefs? It's pretty easy. And you've probably already taken it:
Because you can't fix a problem you don't know exists.
After you've gained awareness of your limiting beliefs, you can start defying them.
So acknowledge these beliefs you hold with you. And when they crop up, beat them down. Prove them wrong. Flip them around.
Because as Henry Ford has said, ?whether you think you can, or you think you can?t?you?re right.?
