Until you do the work of transformation, the self limiting belief stays hidden. While you are not aware of its existence it is there, directing your life, running your show. It tells you what you can achieve and sets limits on your efforts to improve your life. The self limiting belief is, so to speak, unconscious.
If you do not do the work to make the self limiting belief conscious it will continue to direct your life. You will not be aware of the power that it has over you. You will not see your life as choice. You will see life as happening to you. You will call what is happening fate, just the way things happen, destiny.
