Recently, Rachel, a member of my closed Facebook Group asked the question, “Once you have identified mindset issues and recognize your beliefs that aren’t serving you, how do you go about changing these beliefs to new, healthier beliefs?”
Beliefs are key to moving to the next level of your business. They are key because they are what create your emotions and actions. For example, if you feel like you are a fraud and have self-doubt then you will procrastinate to take action. You will also shy away from making yourself more visible – inhibiting your business growth.
There are many fantastic people out there with exercises that make you hunker down and focus on your beliefs. These questions make you look at your beliefs and can help you realize what is holding you back.
There are a couple of ways to approach your blocks. Firstly, start to educate yourself on healthier beliefs. What is the counter belief to your negative belief? If you don’t know research until you find one. For example, for negative money beliefs you can look at Suze Orman for more positive, healthier beliefs.
Unfortunately, you can’t always do it this way. Sometimes books, seminars, etc. still don’t help you to switch your beliefs. Regardless of how intelligent you are you may still struggle with switching your negative beliefs. This is because there is parts of you that are deep down that do not want you to change it. These deep down beliefs believe that the way you are operating still works; there is a part of yourself within your subconscious that does not connect you to the present. This part does not match what you know to be true.
A Core Belief Engineering Practitioner, such as myself, works with you one-on-one to help you look at these deep-down subconscious beliefs that were probably formed in your childhood. For example, if as a child you overheard your parents talking about how money doesn’t grow on trees and that they worked hard to get what little money they had, as an adult your mind still runs that belief. Even though your modern, adult mind knows that is not true for you, your subconscious belief is still running and only through specialized work can you get to this subconscious belief and turn it into a positive belief.
To get started with what your blocks are create a journal and talk about your beliefs so you become more conscious and aware. If you feel you need professional assistance, let’s start a conversation.
