What did you want to be when you were a child? The President? An astronaut? A tennis player? A movie star? Quite literally the sky was the limit. What happened? When did “paying the bills” become more important than following your passion? Who told you you can’t have it all. Can you even remember the exact moment when you gave up on your dreams?
The good news is: it’s never too late.
Now that you know the ways of the world and the skills you’ve to offer and what’s important to you in your life.
Exercise: Please write it down what an incredible life would be for you?
- What are you doing?
- Where are you?
- Who are you with?
- Under the best possible circumstances what kind of life have you created for yourself?
Through doing these exercises we want you to become crystal clear on where you’re at and more importantly where you want to go. You’ll be taking actions to create the life you and your family love.
Limiting beliefs are usually at the root cause of what’s holding us back. They limit what we believe about ourselves and what we dare to attempt, therefore limiting our possibilities. It’s your beliefs that are probably keeping you from the life you deserve and love.
Limiting beliefs that you’ll soon learn to release.
If personal development was easy everyone would do it. At first, opening our minds to new beliefs can feel like a new day in the sun. All we see are the possibilities. However, our old limiting beliefs will attempt to block out the light. They don’t just go away. We’re pushed out of our comfort zone. We’re forced to change our behaviour. We face setbacks. Doubt creeps in and then sometimes we give up and revert to our old comfortable habit.
Exercise: Identifying your limiting beliefs
Something must have happened to you lately that derailed some sort of progress you were making.
- What was it that knocked you off track?
- What prevented you from getting what you wanted e.g. that promotion?
- What caused your relationship to breakdown? Or health to deteriorate? Really think about it and write it down.
Refection: Now let’s review your answer.
- What did you write?
- What was your excuse? Now be brutally honest with yourself.
- Were there any possible ways you could have succeeded despite the hardships or troubles you encountered?
- You may have had to sacrifice something, but there was a way, wasn’t there?
Be creative. Think about it and write it down.
Know what you know now what is the advice that you would give to yourself.
