Three Strategies for Overcoming Self-limiting Beliefs

Self-limiting beliefs are a real drag!  At times I know many people are frustrated because they feel they have so much doubt in themselves and in their belief in what they can achieve.
DON'T LET THIS BE YOU!
 
The worse beliefs you can have are self-limiting beliefs. These exist when you believe yourself to be limited in any way. We are where we are today because of all the beliefs we have had up until today. I'm not talking about the fleeting thoughts that come into our mind and then are gone the next day. I'm talking about the beliefs we dwell on, and compare ourselves to others with. 
 
But you can change those!
 
You may think that others are smarter, funnier or superior to you in some way. Or you may have fallen into selling yourself short or settling for less than you are truly capable of. These self-limiting beliefs act like brakes on your potential...they hold you back. 
 
They generate the two worst enemies of...

Why I Used to Suck at Promoting Myself and 3 Things I Did to Change

Do you ever hold back from telling people what you do and how you help others because it feels like you’re bragging? If you grew up like me you may have been taught:

Don’t be “braggart”

Don’t monopolize the conversation with what you know

Be considerate of what others have to say

And those are all good things to learn and to keep in mind. But as I looked back on building my business I had an epiphany. I realized I passed up many great opportunities to promote myself to the people I got to meet, teach, and work beside. I held back because somehow in my head I felt like I was “bragging”.  

Have you ever felt this same way? I have met so many who do! But with this epiphany I realized that we all have unique strengths and knowledge and gifts we need to share with those we come in contact with. We can lift others and impact their lives!

Looking back here are 3 actions I took to think differently about promoting myself:

Are You Focused on the Dream…or the Task?

Uncategorized

The power of belief is so strong that whatever you put into your mind can happen. So start channeling your belief into what you want. Don’t look at the future for what you see…look at it for what you want it to be.

Early in my career, I flew on commercial flights quite often to speak in different areas of the country. I love to travel, but many times I had the problem of getting sick on the take-off and landing.  Each time I flew I started projecting in my head how the take-off and landing would be, and how nauseated I would feel.

Then during a promotion my mentors held, I won a trip on one of their private planes.  I didn’t even know if I wanted to go because this plane was a small plane with only eight seats. All I could think about is how bumpy the ride might be and how sick I might get!

But under my mentor’s encouragement (pressure actually) I finally consented to go.  To my surprise, the flight was a lot different...

4 Ways to Easily Expand Your Comfort Zone and Gain Confidence

When my children were younger, I was like the mother eagle always nudging them out of their nest…or in other words, their comfort zone. 
I now do this same thing with my coaching clients.  I encouraged them, even pushing them at times to do things that feel like a risk or challenge to them.  I know that as they try things that are hard or uncomfortable, soon those things will become easy.

Hard things, done over and over again, become easy.  And as they become easy, then the confidence to do harder things grows.

So we all want to expand our comfort zones right?  We all want the ability to act and reach out to people and opportunities when they come our way.  But sometimes we just don’t have the confidence to do that. 

Know you have the power to do hard things.  You are capable of far more than you give yourself credit for.  The more you risk and step out of your comfort zone, the more you will see yourself capable...
