limiting beliefs

Are you open minded enough to see where you’re still close minded?

    Open minded and close minded peeps can act very differently towards life in ways that can be very restricting for those who are close minded. Open minded peeps don’t get rocked by change, ideas and unfamiliar territories. They’re more likely to do what it takes to achieve their goals, respond well to constructive criticism and question their own beliefs, growing as a result.

You don’t have to do it all, just because you can

    Do you set high standards and expectations for yourself?   Do you have a never ending to-do list that seems to get longer, not shorter?   Are you a high achiever?   I definitely fall into this category and have exhausted myself being like that over the years.   My driving limiting belief was “you have to work really really really hard for everything you have and even then you can lose it all again”.   Over the…

  A lot of people I know run a small biz these days – sometimes as their only source of income, but often as a hobby biz on the side.   I started my biz in 2006, and it grew very organically along the way initially without the amazing social media we have at our hands today.   Over the years, I’ve coached friends and clients to help them overcome the blocks stopping them from starting, or growing, their small…

  Have you ever said or done something in the heat of the moment when you were emotionally charged, that you wish you could have taken back?   The old saying of “sleep on it, because it will look different in the morning” comes into play here.   When we’re scared, angry or upset, a part of our brain kicks in that’s way more primal than the logical, rational side of our brain.   Our amygdala is where our emotional…
