You’ve set those goals, made a vision board, say positive affirmations all the time and started to take action, yet you are not getting anywhere, even though you feel you are doing the right things.
You’ve talked to your advisors and everyone else, and they reassure you that you are on the right path, you are doing things the correct way. What gives?
Limiting beliefs are your unconscious mind at work – and lead you away from your desired goals. Here is how I dealt with one of mine.
I had started trading financial instruments – forex mainly, but also options and commodities. I attended several great courses & seminars and was pretty knowledgeable about the markets but was still not getting great results. Then one day, I was asked what a successful trader looked like. Wouldn’t you know it – I pictured some male in a suit! Ahhhh! So, reframing time.
I held the thought of a successful trader in my mind, and headed to a mirror and looked very carefully at myself to see if I could see the 2 images (in my mind and that in the mirror) as the same thing – a successful trader. It took a few tries, but I did it! When you mention a successful trader, I now see myself as one, and my trading has improved dramatically.
Whatever you want to be or do, you have to see yourself in that space, or it really won’t happen, and nobody else will see you as one either. Your subconscious is communicating your lack of belief in yourself all over the place!
Athletes use reframing a lot, and when you talk to really successful people, they have a huge belief in their abilities to get to where they are again even if they were to start over. They have done away with the limiting beliefs related to success.
Time to be aware and take steps to get rid of your limiting beliefs and SOAR!
