Are your current business goals big, more challenging than ever? Do they feel unrealistic, impractical, unattainable?
What if the goal is not the issue, but you are…you and your limiting beliefs? I call them LIES – the Labels, Illusions, Excuses and Stories…self-talk that stops you from thinking creatively and keeps you stuck in fear-based, unproductive patterns.
To begin releasing the grip LIES have on you, privately, explore and own your feelings. Admit that in the face of the goal, you feel uncertain and afraid. Then, ask yourself, “What would I do if I weren’t afraid?” Use your responses to devise a strategy and an action plan. Then, put your plan to work. Learn as you implement it and modify, as needed.
Deeper self-awareness, a component of emotional intelligence, can help you challenge the LIES in your life. For more, read LIES That Limit.
