In the next couple of weeks I will be launching a new blog. This one is going to be focusing on entrepreneurs. As I have been stepping into working on this new blog I have found my old fears surfacing. Last week I went into the ditch and started to question what I am doing and doubt myself. The thoughts went something like this “what if it doesn’t work?” or “what am I thinking…I can’t do this”. So here I am wanting to help entrepreneurs overcome the blocks that are holding them back from the success that they desire and what happens…all of my blocks come up. Funny how the universe works. Luckily this time I have a toolbox with all of the tools that I use to help me when my old belief systems start to rear their head. Because that is all that they are is old belief systems. Just because I have thoughts and beliefs doesn’t mean that they are true. My job is to challenge my thoughts and if I determine that they are old thoughts and that they no longer serve me then I have the choice to create new thoughts. I set about to focus on the new thoughts and beliefs that I wanted to create and chose to focus on those instead of putting my energy into the old thoughts. Eventually they subsided and I was able to continue to take action on my business.
If you are experiencing blocks to success try out the following techniques:
- Identify what the thoughts are
- Sit down and create a list of all of the negative or limiting thoughts and next to this list write positive thoughts. Keep them in the present and positive. i.e. I release all old beliefs and welcome prosperity and abundance.
- Keep saying these affirmations every time you are feeling the old thoughts come up. Be sure not to focus on the old thoughts. What we resist persists or what we focus on gets bigger.
A dear friend of mine once told me that even if you aren’t sure of something it is in the committing and stepping in and taking action that the clarity will come. I kept thinking of this as I questioned what I was doing. Often times we get caught up in making a decision by thinking about it. Instead the gold is usually in the taking action and committing. That is when the clarity comes.
I believe that we all have gifts that we can offer to the world and if we let our fears and doubts take over then we are holding ourselves back from sharing these gifts
I wanted to share this with you in the hopes that you will continue to step into creating your dreams so that you can share them with the world.
