OK, so now you’ve had a couple of weeks to practice on 3 limiting beliefs. How did you go?
I’ve already shared with you the other day about Delice Kennedy (INSERT LINK) http://theattitudequeen.wordpress.com/2012/06/26/718/ and how not having limits can create success.
So, now I’d like to share with you what else I noticed while I was on the Gold Coast last weekend.
The vibe at the seminar was about success and being positive, expanding the comfort zone. A LOT of people there were out of their comfort zone – more that I would have imagined so I felt better than I had been feeling before I went. I heard a lot of limiting beliefs and self defeating talk from many people. Also, we all had to face our fears of standing on stage in front of about 150 people.
Several times each day I had my own thoughts and beliefs come up which I had to get rid of and replace with more belief in myself. What I noticed is that other people will have more faith and belief in what you can do than you do yourself.
Here are some defeating self-talk and limiting beliefs I lifted from Seth Godin’s blog
“I have kids at home, I don’t have a manager, I need to pay off student debt, my boss never lets me, I’m really busy because of soccer season, my knee is acting up, there’s already five galas coming up, my RSI hurts when I type, I don’t have a degree, I have a degree and can’t waste it, I’m not good at that, I tried it before but it didn’t work, I’ve never tried it before, the weather is crazy, isn’t it, the election is right around the corner, it’s been too long at this job they won’t listen to me, I’m going to retire soon, I’m too young, I’ll never learn, it’s too risky…”
So I had an idea that would have been interesting to carry out at the seminar. The main purpose of the weekend was to develop a presentation for your own business, after clarifying the niche, but what I noticed was that some of us were more capable of coming up with ideas for someone else’s business. The thing is that other people don’t see inside of our heads and what we are thinking. My idea was that we could be placed into groups to develop a plan for another group member’s business.
I wonder what would happen if we extended this to our personal lives; if we pretended that we were someone else looking at us. What could we achieve?
The only thing stoping you is not allowing yourself to indulge your imagination.
