What you do is an unconscious expression of the sacred beliefs you hold about yourself and the world.
For example, let’s take the average entrepreneur. What beliefs do they have about themselves that lead them to start a business?
Well, they probably have a capacity and appetite for hard work that many others lack. They have a belief in their vision of what they want to build and create with their lives. They’re willing to take risks because they believe in their ability to provide value to their clients.
Can you see that someone who doesn’t have the capacity for hard work, who don’t believe in their own vision, who is unsure of their own value, probably isn’t going to take the plunge of starting a business?
Those are examples of beliefs that we can use to build our lives. But we also hold beliefs that are preventing us from growing as much as we’d say we’d like to.
For example, many business owners have a belief in themselves…to the degree that they don’t ask for help from others or consider the validity of joint ventures to help grow their businesses. They simply put their heads down and work as hard as they can without exploring other options.
Our beliefs can be double-edged swords.
Where are you unknowingly holding yourself back?
