Unleash your potential by getting rid of your false beliefs.

Why do we have limited potential?
Have you been to the circus lately?
Whenever a new elephant is brought to the circus, it is chained to a heavy iron ball. The elephant struggles in vain to escape. Everyday, the elephant repeatedly tries to escape until it finally loses hope of ever being free. The elephant has built up a false belief of the impossibility to escape. Even when the chains are removed, it will never try to escape again.
You've been Brainwashed
All of us have been in that elephant's situation at some point of our life. It's not our fault. We're being brainwashed everyday by our friends, colleagues and the media. Society is always creating certain 'barriers' that are supposedly impenetrable to any normal human being. They are simply out of reach, except if you're a genius or very lucky. Here is a list of some false beliefs that you may have acquired throughout your life:
How false beliefs change people's lives
If you're still taking the issue lightheartedly, let me tell you a story that will change your perspective of things. It revolves around two friends: Joe and Bob, who were used to hang out and play basketball together regularly.
Joe, in particular, was taught by his parents that no one gets everything in life.
After few months, Joe started to feel that something was missing in his life. He got used to the good mood that accompanies regular exorcising and his brain got used to getting more oxygen.
As a result, Joe started to feel depressed without knowing why. He even left his job, thinking that its the reason for his unhappiness.
When people live in a Virtual World
Stories such as these happen everyday because there are people who have similar false beliefs. Most people are unaware of their powers. Some people are held back only by these false beliefs, even though they have many abilities and opportunities for advancement. They convince themselves that they are fine and that this is the way life was meant to be. Those people describe life from their own unique perspective without paying any attention to the real reality.
Lots of people do not take enough actions to improve their lives
Some people do not try to learn anything new and they believe that it's so hard to get a decent job, regardless of how well you're skilled. They indulge in bad habits like smoking and drugs and think that they can never give it up. Some people quit sports and get fat, thinking that their marriage and career should consume their whole time. "Well, you can't get everything in life, can you?" they say.
Some people even go a step further and stay broken for years after breaking up just because of false beliefs, in my book How to get over anyone in few days i described how false beliefs like "He is the one" or "He is my soul mate" can prevent you from recovering fast. A key element in getting over breakups in a short period of time is identifying these false beliefs then dealing with them.
Challenge Your Beliefs
It gets really funny when people start spreading false beliefs without even TESTING them. I was once seeking a certain computer certification and whenever I asked someone about it I was told that it's very hard to pass the exam.
I admit that at the beginning i was about to believe them but then i decided to ask those people "What is so difficult about the exam?". You'll be astonished by the reply: "We don't know. We never tried to take it." These people believed that the exam was so hard just because other people told them so!
So most people say things and spread beliefs that they haven't even tested!!
First, you should test those opinions. If someone told you that you can't lift that box over there then don't just take his word for it, go and try it by yourself. Just because he couldn't lift it doesn't mean that you can't either. Similarly, if someone didn't have the qualities required to land a job, it doesn't mean that you don't have these qualities. People differ in their qualities, strengths and weaknesses. To sum it up:
