PERSONALITY Unlock Your Limiting Beliefs

Our brains produce as many as 50,000 thoughts per day According to the National Science Foundation. 95% of those thoughts are repeated daily!

You have full control over how you think and what is a yes or a no, can or can’t and will or won’t.

What are limiting beliefs? They are there beliefs we create in our mind that prevent us from achieving our dreams and goals.

Limiting Beliefs are usually formed when we are young. Quite often between the ages of 5 and 12. They develop as a result of an event in our lives. It might be something we did, something someone else did or said to us. It might be the behaviours we witnessed every day in our lives

As we grow limiting beliefs become embedded in our mindset, unless we create interventions.

How do we recognise a limiting belief?

  • Awareness – does our belief move us forward or limit our potential?
  • Honest – is the story in our head actually true?
  • Facts – is there any evidence behind what you believe?
  • Pause – it is ok to acknowledge that you don’t have enough experience or resources at present, but it’s not ok to say therefore I can’t or won’t

We all have limiting beliefs. The key is to be able to recognize and then reframe.

It starts with a growth mindset – the belief that intelligence can be developed –through hard work, asking questions, experimenting and applying effective strategies.

I’s time to implement a high performance mindset:

High Performance Mindset

  1. Awareness – create an awareness of your thoughts and beliefs?
  2. Attention – where is your focus and what is your intention of focus?
  3. Movement – Sam cawthorn “motion evokes emotion”
  4. Delegation – outsource what doesn’t require your attention
  5. Winner – mentality of winning
  6. Achievement – celebrate small wins
  7. Solution – not the problem
  8. Why – self discovery of what is your purpose, dream and passion
  9. Positive – mindset
  10. Plan – Without a road map and a destination, how will you know you are going in the right direction?

Active CEO Performance Tip

“With great power comes great responsibility” – As Spiderman once said, while sharing his wisdom. As a leader you not only have a responsibility for yourself, your family and your people, but also for the industry you work in and humankind. We are not leaders if we shy away from inappropriate behaviour and negative decisions. We have a responsibility to ensure that the industry we work in grows in a positive manner as the actions of the negative few can have a harmful effect on everyone. Ask yourself the question, is these actions and behaviour moving the industry forward or taking it backwards? What is the consequence to human beings as a result of these actions and behaviours? How responsible are you as a leader?

Active CEO Performance Tip

People Want To Be Led – There has been an increase in focus on collaborative leadership in recent times. When COVID-19 took hold of the world, the most successful and effective leaders went into an authoritative leadership style. Why is this? The majority of people in the world seek to be led rather than lead when overwhelm and uncertainty consumed us. Human beings natural default is comfort and went on high alert for someone to assure them. The successful leaders during COVID-19 responded quickly, made a decision (rightly or wrongly) and provided a clear direction, which gave people hope, a level of certainty and they knew someone cared. The reason the leaders could thrive in an Authoritative Leadership mode was because they had already build up a certain level of trust and loyalty with their people, which is likely to have included aspects of collaborative leadership.
