WHAT IS STOPPING YOU?
Here are 3 things that may be stopping you making the changes you want to make. Most people have heard or even might have said “if you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got”. And although we have to agree that it is true, many of us don’t make those changes we need to make to get the results we would like to get. So what is stopping us? Here are 3 things that could be getting in your way and excuses we make to ourselves.
You are so used to the way you do things, you are scared of what might happen if you change something. Perhaps your friends or family will get upset if you decide to spend some time doing what you want to do rather than always keeping other people happy. I can’t count how many times I have heard people say “better the devil you know……..” when they have decided to put up with the poor conditions at work rather than look for another better job.
Beliefs such as “ this is all I deserve, I am not worthy of anything better in my life’ are a big reason why people are stuck and don’t make the changes they would like to make. Understanding these beliefs that have usually been with us since childhood and recognising that they are not relevant or useful to us now, is the first step in moving forward. Life coaches use a variety of techniques and strategies to help you recognise and release your limiting beliefs.
“This is not the right time,” or " I don’t have enough time” are often fear based excuses. If you really want to do something you will make/find time to do it even if you do it at a slower pace.
This is just a very short, simplified explanation of a complicated process and all of these 3 factors are interrelated. For one to one help with schedule a 15 minute discovery call or take advantage of my Power Coaching Package. If you prefer to work alone you can access an online course, Five Steps to Conquering your Limiting Beliefs here. ( At the time of writing this, the course is free but there may be a charge in the future).
