New release - PASSION STRUCK


How You Overcome Your Self-Limiting Beliefs

Imagine what you could accomplish if you believed that nothing was out of reach. That your future is built around limitless opportunity rather than by a fixed mindset. But how do you overcome your self-limiting beliefs?

Our careers and lives are often derailed by self-limiting beliefs that we are stuck where we are in life in a fixed state. Self-limiting beliefs are negative self-perceptions that we create around our past experiences, trauma we may have experienced, or just comments from others that live in our subconscious and consciousness.

In this Momentum Friday episode of the Passion Struck podcast, John R. Miles discusses how our limits result from the mindset that we choose to live and act by. Often we develop self-limiting beliefs that are not real and only exist in our minds. John provides the examples of Michael Jordan and John Bassinger to illustrate those who pushed past their limits and explores this through the lens of Dr. Carol Dweck’s work on mindset.

And in case you didn’t already know it, John R. Miles (@john_r_miles) takes your requests for topics on Momentum Friday right here every week!

When people focus on a growth mindset, they change from a judge and be judged framework to a learn and help learn framework.
