Episode 24- The top 10 limiting beliefs and overcoming them - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of money, etc. passion and potential podcast by Arastasia listen on apple and spotify

In this episode I talk through some of the top 10 limiting beliefs that I – and so many others – have struggled with. I give advice on how to analyze which you struggle with, how to peel back the layers to understand WHY you do, and how to train your mind to overcome them over time.

As I’ve talked about in past episodes, I’ve done a ton of hard self work to reframe my mindset. It’s taken years of therapy, uncomfortable conversations with myself and setting difficult boundaries. By no means have I completely conquered the following limiting beliefs, but I’ve certainly made progress with them. 


1. Fear of success

2. Fear of failure

It wasn’t until this year that I decided to go all in on launching my podcast and painting my murals without letting the fear of failure debilitate me.

3. Fear we are not good enough to achieve what we want 

Why do we tell ourselves we’re not good enough before even giving ourselves the opportunity to try? 

4. Fear of not being loved/being unlovable

A lot of these can be conditioned from childhood, societal upbringing or unhealthy relationships. This fear causes us to put up walls, which ultimately prohibit anyone from loving us. 

5. Fear of rejection

Generally leading to avoiding relationships or to people please.

6. Having negative attributes assigned to being rich or having money

Growing up, I was almost conditioned to think that having money would make me “bad” or cause me to have the wrong values and priorities in life, but that’s not the case at all. I’m still the same passionate, hard-working, good-hearted human, and now I’m also making a living. 

7. Fear of greatness 

8. We don’t deserve/are not worthy of success 

9. We have to work very hard, long hours for our money 

This goes hand-in-hand with having negative attributes assigned to money. So many of us believe that if we’re not working really, really hard all the time, we don’t deserve money. This is just not true. 

10. Others hold me back 

We can’t let other people stop us from being the best version of ourselves. If you have unsupportive people in your life, at some point you need to put yourself first and  establish boundaries so they no longer have the power to hold you back. 


First and foremost, you need to analyze what the issue is. Then, you can dig deeper to figure out why you experience that limiting belief and how it’s preventing you from accomplishing a goal, chasing a dream or even just performing day-to-day actions. 

As a first step, I recommend a brain-dump listing out all of the limiting beliefs that resonate with you. Then, you can start to peel back the layers of “why” (Is it that success is going to take you out of your comfort zone and you know you’ll have to do things that don’t come as easily? Is it fear of disappointing or outgrowing other people? Did someone tell you you were unlovable?). 

After you analyze the beliefs and get to the root, you can start putting in the self work to reverse them. Everytime you tell yourself that you don’t deserve success, stop it in the moment and tell yourself that you are worthy. Try hanging self love notes around your house or finding an inspirational quote to set as your phone background as a constant reminder to put in the self work.

I promise you, you can overcome your limiting beliefs. 

If any of these limiting beliefs resonated, I’d love to hear from you! You can get in touch with me on Instagram or join our Passion and Potential Facebook Group where we share stories and tips to help one another overcome our fears and become our most passionate selves.
