Self-Limiting Beliefs Holding You Back?
Most people have no idea that their thoughts are the reason for a lack of high performance or goal achievement. These little messages inside our own heads continue to plague our performance and our execution.
Self-limiting beliefs are at the core of the issue. You could call it programming for lack of success. And, the interesting thing is in most cases the belief started due to an innocent statement or a “helpful” comment from a friend or relative. Yes, helpful people – who were authority figures at the time – buried a thought deep in our subconscious mind. And, that thought has limited our performance ever since.
Some people have told me at this time that I must be “off my rocker” when making a statement like this. Well, I may be “off my rocker” on a number of things – but this is not one of them. The truth is found in how the brain works. Emotional information, phrases or statements get stored in our mind and sit there or actually influence our actions and responses to certain stimulus. In other words, our actions are influenced by our subconscious thoughts.
These thought are triggered at some of the worst possible moments – a salesperson calling on new prospect – thought trigger is “be wary of strangers!” and the sales person loses confidence and creates issues so the salesperson can get away from the prospect; an employee is about to work on a company critical project – a thought trigger is “you never complete anything!” and the employee struggles to finish the project on time.
Thoughts are also influence and are present in other areas of our life – health issues, weight issues, social skills, ability to write or speak, make a certain golf shot – they are impacting our results every day. So, what are you doing about these thoughts?
Ignoring them is not a correct answer, they are present in your subconscious mind and influencing everything you do. Some are helping and others are hurting you.
