You can limit yourself by the story you have created about you. Here are some simple examples of how the story we have created about ourselves can limit us:
I am no good at math. I have never been able to dance. I am not a very good writer. I am very stubborn. I don't sleep well. I am very moody. I struggle with my weight. My English is not good. I am always late. I am not a very good driver. I can't see without my glasses. It is hard for me to make friends. Money seems to slip through my fingers.
The moment you become aware of what you are saying, you can delete these things and rewrite your story!

Another one I hear very often: "I'm not good with names." People also like to embrace their disease: "My diabetes. My herniated disc. My high blood pressure." Embrace it and it's yours to keep.
