active CEO Podcast #117 PERSONALITY Unlock Your Limiting Beliefs

active CEO Podcast Craig Johns NRG2Perform High Performance Leadership PERSONALITY Unlock Your Limiting Beliefs

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?
