11 Stupid Beliefs That Can Stop You Dead In Your Tracks

Are you aware of your crippling beliefs?

Whether you’re aware of them or not, I can promise you they’re there and greatly influencing the direction of your life…

I’m not sure if you can ever completely drop these types of beliefs but I do know it’s possible to greatly reduce the amount of impact they have on your actions by simply following a simple rule. I’ll share that rule with you shortly but first I want to list a few common limiting beliefs;

Belief #1 I Can’t…

I was introduced to this limiting belief from an early age. Whenever I use to say it my dad would always say that the word never existed in his dictionary. Does it exist in yours? Whether you believe you can do something or not, you’re right.

Belief #2 It’s too complicated

This is a fairly common limiting belief that people come up with whenever they are starting something new. It’s very easy to overload yourself with so much information that you go into a state of paralysis and never actually get anything done.

After you’ve devoured every known piece of information on whatever it is you’re trying to accomplish, the task can seem so complicated that you stop believing you can actually achieve it. Instead, try keeping things as simple as possible, create a daily game plan and get it done.

Belief #3 I Never Make Money With Those Things

It’s true that most people will quit before ever making any money online or in their network marketing company. There are a lot of different reasons for this but rarely is it because of the company or online business model. We all have the same amount of hours in a day and in most cases have access to the same knowledge, so if someone else can make it work then you can too.

In the past I never actually made money with these things either but I’ve come to realise that it was my own limiting beliefs and lack of commitment getting in my way.

Belief #4 I Have To Spend A Lot Of Money To Make It

This is simply not true, well not in the business I’m in anyway. Considering most franchise businesses start at around 150k with ongoing fees, the price you pay to get into a good online business is minimal. Besides, I know multiple people earning over 20k per month and they are only just getting started…Most surgeons don’t even make that much!

Put it this way, If you wanted to be a Lawyer, Doctor or Accountant, could you just go into Google, teach yourself a few things and then open your own practice? No, of course not. You need to invest in yourself first, complete the training and then become qualified.

Wy should an online business be any different? Well I guess it is different in that you don’t pay anywhere near as much for your training, you have the potential to start working and making money right away, you’re not trading time for money and most importantly there really is no ceiling on how much income you can make.

Belief #5 All Online Business Opportunities Are Just Scams

This is the most ridiculous of them all and I almost didn’t want to add it in here but I thought I should as most people still actually believe this is true.

The fact is that it’s not easy to be successful in this industry, you have to work extremely hard to get it started and most just aren’t willing to do that. As far as I’m concerned this belief is for most of those people who realise that fact early in the game and quit before seeing results.


Unless you actually got scammed, in which case you should have done your due diligence before handing over your hard earned cash 😉

Belief #6 I’m To Old To Do This

Unless you’re over 90 years old then sorry, you can’t use this one either. If you can turn on a computer, send an email and communicate on places like Twitter and Facebook then you qualify.

Belief #7 I Don’t Need Positive Attitude Training

I held this belief for a long time and I’m really glad I’ve given it up. We can’t learn anything new if our cups already full right?

We can never know everything…keeping our mind sharp and attitude positive should be a daily practice until the day we die. Tapping into an online business that has this belief at it’s core and gives you access to the resources you need to accomplish this belief is a real asset to have in your life.

Belief #8 I Don’t Have The Time

Like I said before, everyone has the same number of hours in a day. Not everyone has the same commitments right? Wrong…I bet I can find someone in the exact or similar situation to you who has made it work. It might be a case of going to bed an hour later, getting up an hour earlier, skipping your favourite TV show or better yet turning off the TV for good!

I honestly can’t remember the last time I watched TV, played a game console or game on my phone. Yes, it’s ok to switch off sometimes but it’s important to take a look at your life and see how much time your wasting with these fruitless actions. Your time could be much better spent doing things that will bring you one step closer to achieving your reason WHY.

Belief #9 I’m Not Good With People

I’m an introvert and I know many successful people in this industry who are also introverted. The days of home meetings, three way calls and talking to family, friends and random people on the street are over. We live in a digital age and can create automated systems that build real connections, generate leads (people who contact you interested in your stuff), educate leads, introduce them to your business and close the deal…While you sleep!

If you join the right business with the right team and mentors then this is what will also happen for you whether you’re introverted or not.

Belief #10 I’m Not A Sales Person

Again, being a sales person is not a requirement to be successful in this industry anymore. Any good online business will have sales systems in place including videos, email follow ups and even call staff to help ensure you get paid what your worth.

Belief #11 I’m Not Tech Savvy

If an 85 year old grandma (I know of a couple) can do it then you can too. No excuses.

As I mention in the video above, having a strong reason why you’re looking at starting this kind of business is the thing that will help you push through any negative belief no matter how big or small.

It might be that you want to spend every day with you kids, want to quit your fly in fly out job or you might just want to make a few extra dollars to help get a new car. Whatever it is, it’s in your best interest to get very clear on it and remind yourself everyday.

The tip I promised…Every time a limiting belief burrows its way into your mind simply cut it off before it has a chance to settle and replace it with something positive. For instance…I can’t make a video this morning because I have nothing of value to share with anyone can be replaced with I have a ton of value to share and it would be a disservice to my community not to share it.

Starting this type of reprogramming will help you to slowly loosen the grip these beliefs have on you and bring such change that I guarantee you won’t recognize yourself within a few years.
