Now that you have come face to face with the limiting behaviors keeping you from succeeding in your goals its time to examine WHY these behaviors exist.
It all surrounds your beliefs and thoughts.
Here’s what you have to do…..
Life is a reflection of our thoughts and words. Our lives are consistent with what we say to ourselves and what we predict, likely by also speaking it consistently into the universe. Life is a self fulfilling prophecy!
Review what you listed in the BEHAVIORS action assignment.
To discover the beliefs you have about yourself that lead you away from reaching success ask your self the following question:
“What am I saying about myself to explain my limiting behaviors?”
This may be a difficult assignment because you will have to you to step outside your thoughts,observe them, and capture them for further consideration.
We are usually so caught up in all the “noise” going on in our heads that we don’t take time question what we are saying to ourselves and if it is true.
For each of the behaviors you listed, ask yourself “Why?” and write down the thoughts that occur to you in response. As much as possible, write down the exact words you say to yourself and out loud.
We will call these “confessions.” They reveal what you believe to be true about yourself.
Here are some examples…
I am just not good enough
I am not smart enough or educated enough to do better
I do not have enough time
I way out of my league – this is too big for me
My family and friends will not approve
No one is interested in hearing what I have to say
