A mistaken personal belief about oneself created during a time of trauma resulting in self-limiting behavior.

About Beloof.com

Welcome to my blog, beloof.comand my new podcast, “I Know What Rob Would Say.”

I hope you will join us as a new community to explore the concept of the beloof, but more importantly, to examine your own personal beloofs and have discussions to help you understand the birth of your beloof. Through the discussion, we can share suggestions for reframing your beloofs. I am inviting individuals who have done work on their beloofs, and colleagues and professionals to add their two-cents worth in helping to examine and reframe the beloofs that are presented.

But first, let me share how the concept of the “beloof” came about, and the definition of beloof. This is how I described it in the introduction of my new book, Of Endings and Beginnings, A Memoir of Discovery and Transformation:

Example: When I was three, and my brothers made me go on a scary ferris wheel ride, I formed a beloof that I couldn’t trust those closest to me.

I published the word and definition in The Urban Dictionary. Click HERE to see the listing…
