What stops you from succeeding
This months newsletter is all about what prevents you from succeeding, specifically but not exclusively in business. Have you ever felt embarrassed or even humiliated by the pace at which your business is progressing? If your feeling stuck, then more than likely you have an inner conflict which is manifesting in your outer circumstances. I recently had a realisation that dramatically shifted the way I perceived my present career, which may speak to you personally....
Even though I consciously wanted to succeed in life by helping others and working for myself, subconsciously I believed that starting my own business would mean working a lot and being mentored and given a business model by the health and nutrition company Herbalife would limit my freedom and ability to decide how I operated on a day to day basis. In other words a conscious vs subconscious conflict was occurring as I believed that more success would equal less freedom. Because the subconscious mind is extremely powerful I was unable to move forward yet I lacked an understanding of ‘why’. I was feeling stuck and resistant, in fact it felt as if I was pushing a boulder uphill. However if you can find a way to align your subconscious mind with your conscious mind that mountain will become a mole hill.
The key for me was being easy with myself about my resistance, beginning to explore what it was trying to teach me and listening in for the wisdom that was to be revealed. For example I have a non negotiable desire for freedom, working from a set model is not controlled but structured, and you can still be creative within an already created brand. I also attended a two day training event in Barcelona which flooded my subconscious mind with examples of how people lives are immensely improved as a result of being in business. I thanked my subconscious mind for trying to protect me and made a promise that I wouldn't commit to anything that would take me away from what I want.
To find out what is holding you back:
Get curious with how you are feeling and when you feel resistance sit and mediate. Ask yourself what your subconscious mind, spirit or soul is trying to protect or teach you.
Make the commitment to honour what you have discovered is really important to you in life.
Let your subconscious mind know that it is possible to connect and marry your heart and mind. Look for examples of where people have what you want so you know it is possible.
Then make a promise to yourself that you will move through your barriers to success.
So if you have fear, whether it be fear of success or something entirely different, discover the lesson. I now understand and truly believe that success will increase my freedom in life. Experiment with getting your subconscious mind onboard with your conscious goals.
