So have you heard about this thing called MINDSET? Apparently, it’s the reason why you can’t lose weight, attract love, get a promotion or make enough money. Total bummer, right? WRONG! What I’m going to tell you may ruffle some feathers or create a bit of controversy but here it goes. YOU DON’T NEED TO FIX YOUR MINDSET!
Now let me back up a sec, limiting beliefs and mindset are totally real. But I want to give you a fresh new perspective on it and explain why your perceived limitations may be caused by something you probably NEVER EVEN CONSIDERED.
Let me give you some examples…
GROWING A BIZ
Let’s say you’re an entrepreneur looking to grow your business. You need marketing and sales help so you hire a business coach.
Your coach is super knowledgeable and they give you step-by-step instructions to help you get new clients and make more money. So now you know WHAT to do, however, you just aren’t doing it! Each time you have a coaching call, you sheepishly report that you haven’t moved forward with anything. So what gives???
It’s not that you don’t want your business to succeed (because the only thing worse than death for you right now would be to have to get a “real job”). So you start thinking, “What the heck’s my problem? Why can’t I get my act together? Could I maybe have internal blocks, limiting beliefs or a lousy mindset that’s holding me back?”
Then you go galloping off to find a book so you can “fix” yourself or fire up Google and type in “mindset coaches”. You figure that until you dig up the root of this issue, you’re going to just keep coming up against the same barriers over and over again. And you’re right. BUT….
What if you do all that mindset work and you STILL aren’t executing?
Now you start to feel like a total failure. Your mind starts telling you, “Maybe I’m just not cut out for this” or “I better go get a job.” Next thing you know, you’re ready to quit.
What a total and utter shame.
How sad that you began your business because you had a calling, a service to provide, inspiration to give, lives to change. Only to pull the plug because of something at play that WASN’T EVEN ON YOUR RADAR!
Want to guess what I’m talking about?
In this scenario, it’s highly likely that you were out of alignment with what your Inner Guidance was telling you. You were getting lots of OUTSIDE information from your coach, other mentors, your business girlfriends etc. but you didn’t think to run that by your INNER Guidance or connect inward to see what messages were there for you.
I’ve seen this over and over.
Lots of coaches deliver a system or a formula but remember THERE’S NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL!
If something doesn’t feel right, then it’s your responsibility to dig deeper and see why.
If the marketing and sales tactics you’re being taught don’t align with you at the deepest soul level, then no amount of coaching will help. You’ll continue to run in the other direction every time.
It’s the beginning of a new year and you’re ready to commit to getting fit, feeling vibrant, strong and eating well. You’re watching lots of online webinars, reading articles in health magazines, maybe even working out with a trainer.
Everywhere you turn you’re being told what to eat/not eat, what the best form of exercise is or isn’t etc. But again, there’s no one size fits all!
What does your body say? Did you ask it????
Your body is the most accurate divination tool there is so why aren’t you asking and listening?!
Like I said, this is a new perspective on why you don’t need to fix your mindset and while it may not make me popular, it had to be said.
You’re a smart cookie. Stop taking everything at face value (even if it seems legit) and check in with yourself.
See what your Inner Guidance has to say and finally, listen.
