 What is LIMITING you?

I am a HUGE BELIEVER in taking action to create the life you want! The biggest blockade to us TAKING ACTION is our own UNCOMFORTABLENESS! 
At some point to TRULY GROW you have to be well, uncomfortable. Let's look at three ways we can FACE uncomfortableness to help create success in our lives.

1. The NUMBER ONE thing that LIMITS US is our own~ Fear

Why is fear the biggest thing that holds us back? Because Fear of the outcome, fear of the unknown, fear of not being good enough, and fear of failing—we go through them all. You can pile fear on top of fear until eventually you find it easier to just forget the whole idea and do something that makes you comfortable. Which is why so many of us stay in our "COMFORT ZONES"!
Where does our FEAR come from? Fear stems from our beliefs about ourselves, which come from our experiences and feedback from family and friends. If you have had a negative experience with something, then you may fear experiencing that negative feeling again. If you have been told that you can’t do something, then you might be fearful that you really can’t do it. To often our fear limits us from trying something new or meeting someone new!
How do you SOLVE this problem? You need to remove these limiting beliefs and push past the fear. You can do this by using positive affirmations about yourself and consistently using positive self-talk to boost up your confidence level. It also helps to surround yourself with people who believe in you and your abilities and push you forward to face your fears.

 2. The second biggest thing that LIMITS US is~ Rejection

Why does rejection limit our success? Rejection can lead you to feel like you’re not good enough, since it often leads to criticism, from yourself or someone else. Use this criticism to learn how you can improve in order to succeed. Once you know what you have to develop, you can work on those areas and try again. If you keep learning and growing, you will succeed.
For instance, I used to be a model and going on auditions was always exciting because it was like "competing" for a job. But with every rejection, I felt less competent as a model and as myself. It led me to change how I felt about going to auditions. Instead of being excited, I learned to separate the "audition" from "my life" so I wouldn't stop going and completely give up!
Or you can take the criticism, learn from it, and come back with something far stronger. There’s literally nowhere to go but up. Learn all you can about whatever it is you do and with some practice and persistence, you will eventually gain success.
A little rejection is inevitable, but if you’re willing to keep trying, you will see both progress and results.

3. The third biggest thing that LIMITS US is~ Inability

Sometimes we know that we can’t do something, and sometimes we have tried to do something before and failed. For instance, if you have never tried dancing before, then taking on the challenge of a dance competition may seem unrealistic. On the other hand, if you have tried to dance before and failed, then you may hold the belief that you just can’t do it.
Fortunately for us, inability is something that everyone can push past. With enough effort, you can learn almost anything you set your mind to. You just have to find the information/help and start learning and practicing.
Start small and KEEP GOING! Don’t let your comfort zone hold you back from taking risks, reaching your potential, and experiencing success. The more you push through your comfort zone, the larger it will become. Soon it will come much more naturally and easily to do things that move you toward your dreams!

Well, there you go! Three GREAT places to start on creating the life you want! If you start to feel uncomfortable just tell yourself- "I must be doing something RIGHT!"
