How to Break through Barriers Holding You Back
by Peter Sacco
What is a barrier? According to any definition, a barrier is some kind of structure which blocks or impedes the progress of something or someone. If you want to take this working definition one step further, the “structure” need not be physical in nature, but can be mental, emotional or psychological as well.
Did you know that most structures that people put between themselves and their successes or what they most want out of life are mental/psychological?
I will bet you when you hear this next notion you will be even more surprised – the greatest barriers people face is a two word barrier starting with the word “I” and ending in the word “can’t” Do you have “I can’t” barriers keeping you from your goals?
Most barriers come from and/or are products of our pasts in some form.
You might have actually experienced some sort of failure once, twice or thrice and decided to set an “I can’t” in place to protect your ego and feelings from further disappointment. Perhaps your “I can’t” came from being told “You can’t” from parents, siblings, friends, teachers or others that you looked up to while growing up.
Rather than challenging what they told you, you couldn’t do, you accepted it by proxy which means just accepting it as a foregone conclusion. And the longer you live with an “I can’t” the more it solidifies in your thought process as becoming a reality and you start living accordingly.
As a matter of fact, most people’s fears are barriers which keep them from doing or trying something they have always wanted to. Just like the “I can’t” variable, they accept other people’s fears or worries as their own and never try to see for themselves!
In order for any and all barriers to be broken, overcome or demolished you have to develop an “I can” mentality. Simply put, you need to learn to say “I can“.
An “I can” mentality does not guarantee or assure you of success, but it does assure you of one thing…”I at least get to try!” That’s right, you can try! You will never climb over any mountain or hill for that matter unless you take the first steps required to make the ascent.
Well, what if you want to try but your “I can’t” thought process is too strong?
Hypnosis or self-hypnosis is a great place to start. A mentality based on “I can’t” often times becomes ingrained in the unconscious mind and can be retrained by putting in more powerful, positive suggestions.
A positive thought is way more stronger than a negative thought. The more positive thoughts you put in, the more the negative thoughts get cancelled out.
A good hypnotherapist can help create positive “I can” and possibility thinking scripts along with you in sessions and help them become ingrained in your unconscious mind. In a matter of weeks, you will begin to see tremendous results.
