Your mindset is at the core of how you see your reality and yourself in it. Beliefs are one of the defining parts of your mindset.

In this video you are going to find 2 very effective ways—namely the “But-Exercise” and the “Because-Exercise”—to identify limiting beliefs you might have.

Then, we will go on and transform those limiting into really supporting and empowering beliefs for you. This is powerful stuff, so please do one or both exercises and you might be surprised what you will uncover!


This video was part of the 2013 version of Personal Breakthrough Academy (called “The System” back then). It’s from the second module called “The No-Limit Mindset”. Read more about the current and evolved version of Personal Breakthrough Academy here.

    Great message, I know from my experience that changing your mindset changes everything. Book that changed my life was ” The Power Of Consistency – Weldon Long”.
    I do know it takes work to change and only if you believe in yourself, which many was not really taught that growing up…. You know grow get a job and you will be fine, All that junk we were told and came to believe about ourselves that was simply not true. Seek and you shall find, Ask an it will be given to you…. It Is Possible!!

    Great video Myrko. I definitely agree with you about changing one’s language and thought processes in order to gradually change one’s beliefs.

    Also, I like your plant behind the computer in the beginning. :)

    What program are you using to edit the video?
