As a coach, it’s important that I have a clear understanding of my own belief systems and continue to work on my own limiting beliefs in order to support the changes that my clients desire. So we do have to be self-aware and catch our own limiting beliefs as they come up and work on them. We are all works in progress, and I still work on and challenge my own thinking as I set new and larger goals.
So, how and when will you catch your limiting beliefs that may be in your blind spot just take a little time to think about that.
One way you might find useful when you start out on this journey is to ask two or three very close people to point out to you or reflect back if they hear you knocking yourself or are saying negative things about yourself, listen when these people help you in this way and write down what they told you-you said, look at what you want instead and commit to catching yourself each time you repeat the old belief and then change it into the new one you want to believe instead.
Also, change your state, this will change your physiology, your body language, your thoughts and feelings this will help you to start to feel the new belief, feelings are really important when you want to change a belief thinking alone is not enough. Learn to connect your head and your heart, your goals need to make you feel good.
By practicing this regularly you will start to notice change not only will the above practice change a large number of your limiting beliefs, but you will notice that you will start to move more towards a reward focus in your goals which by the way isn’t better than move away from It’s just more consistent and gives you much more consistent results.
As Jack Canfield said ‘a belief is just a thought that you think of over and over again’ so, why not start thinking positive thoughts over and over again it takes exactly the same effort!
