Episode 10: Can You Get Rid of Limiting Beliefs?

4word community, we are grateful to come to you each week with content that is helpful as you navigate the successes and challenges of life. As we continue to stay apprised of the impact of COVID-19, we want you to know that we are praying for you as you navigate each day! We are grateful during this time to be an army of intercessors praying for the physical and spiritual wellbeing of our friends, our families, and for our world. If you have specific prayer requests, please send those to Irrayna as she consolidates prayer requests for our Boards and staff to pray over each week. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9.

(This podcast was pre-recorded earlier this year.)

In this episode, we hone in a little more on the lies we believe and discuss limiting beliefs. These go slightly beyond the lies we believe and dive into deeper, potentially more detrimental thought patterns and behaviors. Kristen Stockton, a business performance consultant, executive coach, and the chair of 4word: Washington D.C., coaches us through how to release ourselves from limiting beliefs.
