Yesterday I spent time imagining YOUR success! The emphasis on Always Imagine More has also shaken some of my inner beliefs. I’ve been using a new exercise for a week now, and it’s helping me to shift some concepts about what I am doing with my business.
What if I could live anywhere and still make money doing what I love?
What if people paid to hear me speak, paid me to read my words, paid me to transform their businesses, their relationships, their lives?
What if I have been keeping myself locked in a box?
Today I’ve been engaged in a dialogue about limiting beliefs. Denis Waitley has been quoted as saying, “If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.”
Although Denis talks of belief as a catalyst towards action, belief is also the weight on your shoulders, the burden that keeps you stuck, and the little voice that tells you to play it safe and stay where you are. But, is it really safer where you are?
For example, I know someone who has stayed in a job beyond her tolerance. She believed that she made really good money and that the ONLY way she could make really good money was that job or something similar. In this instance, her belief centered on her need for financial security.
Her desire to stay safe was also keeping her stuck.
What if she could make money elsewhere? What if she could make even more money than she’s making today? What if she could make money AND be happy working each day?
Expand your thinking. Move beyond today’s horizons.
Ask yourself, “what if…..?“
