Awareness of our mindset and how we need to improve it is one of the most underutilized areas of how you can succeed (or not) in business and in life. A strong mindset sets you up for success, while a mindset harboring hidden limiting beliefs could be holding you back.
Through my work, I notice that regardless of how successful my clients are, frequently there is a ceiling they hit in their own mindset around what is possible for their next level of success.
This realization led me to investigate how our brains work, and what might be happening with us when our limiting beliefs show up. Through my studies, I realized that this a very common human issue, and not one isolated to my clients. This exploration led me to study neuro linguistic programming (NLP), and ultimately to become a Certified Master Level NLP practitioner. NLP is the study of how the brain works, communication, and personal development. The founders believe there is a connection between how we think, language, and learned behavior and that these patterns can be altered to achieve our goals and live more successful lives. Through my education, I learned processes and tools to support clients with eliminating limiting beliefs quickly and painlessly.
I use NLP to help my clients become more successful and release limiting beliefs that previously held them back from performing at a higher level. I take them through a process in which we clarify what the limiting belief is, and ultimately shift that limiting belief to an empowering belief. The right mindset can make all the difference.
This process around shifting mindset does not require a lot of time. In fact I often help my clients make a huge impact on transforming their limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs in just one session.
Examples of how limiting beliefs could hold you back include:
- While you might want to be receiving referrals and introductions, you might feel resistant to or uncomfortable with the process for asking for them
- While you might want to work with more affluent clients, you find yourself attracting prospects that are less affluent
- While you might think that you have clarity about how you’d like to expand your business, you find yourself producing fewer results than you desire
An example of a limiting belief around onboarding a new client or sales might be: “I don’t want to be seen as a pushy salesman.” A limiting belief around abundance might be: “I’m not worth it, or I’m not going to be able to deliver in a way that’s required.” Another example of a limiting belief I often hear when clients are considering narrowing their niche, is that they fear that they will miss out on opportunity by focusing on a smaller but more defined group.
Often it comes down to limiting beliefs that impact self worth, ability to produce, ability to feel good about onboarding new clients, and the experience around the sales process. Releasing limiting beliefs and replacing them with empowering beliefs gives my clients renewed access to their power on their path to achieving their goals and beyond.
If you are thinking to yourself, “I don’t have any limiting beliefs. I feel strongly in my ability to excel,” let me tell you: we all have limiting beliefs or areas of our mindset that hold us back from experiencing life on a different level. From what I’ve seen, it’s part of the human experience.
Now, I ask you: Where in your mindset do you feel stuck or like you’re holding yourself back from the experience you are truly wanting in your business?
