When doubt starts to come between you and your goal(s), try these three things.

  • Write Out Your Accomplishments. List all that you’ve experienced, learned, contributed and achieved since your last self-inventory. Put it down on paper and keep it handy. Add to it as your stable of successes expands.
  • Notice Clues and Cues.   Whenever others see you as more capable and talented than you believe yourself to be, trust their perception and feedback. Accept the potential and expanded capacity they acknowledge.  Then, behave as if they’re right.
  • Own the New You. Move beyond self-imposed, limiting beliefs about what’s possible for you.       Occupy the space you’ve earned through hard-won growth and development.

Deeper self-awareness is an important component of emotional intelligence. It can help you challenge the LIES — the Labels, Illusions, Excuses and Stories – that are weighing you down, imprisoning you.

One you push LIES out of your way you can more easily advance toward your goals with determination, confidence, and courage.
