Episode 50: Self-Imposed Limitations Part 2
In this episode we talk about part 2 of ‘self-imposed limitations’. This is a big topic and so we spread it out over 2 podcasts. In the first episode we talked about what self-limitation is, some of the popular self-limitings statement we hear, and reasons behind self-imposed limitations. In part 2 we talk about the what the research says on why we may self-limit and why other people can place limitations on what we can achieve based on their own perceptions and biases. Following on from our discussion on self-determination theory in part 1, we talk more about fear of failure, perfectionism and burnout. How visualisation can be helpful, but has also been turned into a product. How self-determination and self belief can lead to the 'Roger Bannister Effect'. Then finally some takeaways to help manage self-limiting beliefs, whether self imposed, or brought on by others.
