I find it fun and somewhat funny to read what was (obviously now) limiting thinking in the past.
After chuckling about them, limiting beliefs from the past can help us realize that they are not funny when we are being limited by them. Here are a few examples:
“Louis Pasteur’s theory of germs is ridiculous fiction.” ~ Pierre Pachet, Professor of Physiology at Toulouse, 1872
“This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” ~ a Western Union internal memo, 1876
“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” ~ Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM, 1943
“There is no reason why anyone would want a home computer.” ~ Ken Olson, President, Chairman, and Founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977
“It will be years — not in my time — before a woman will become Prime Minister.” ~ Margaret Thatcher, 1974
As we all know, germs are real, telephones and computers are everywhere, and Margaret Thatcher was able to release her limiting thinking and become Prime Minister.
Let’s uncover and release our own limiting beliefs, such as “I’m not enough,” and see what we become.
