Breaking through limiting beliefs

Results are directly connected to intention
When our intention changes so do our results

Breaking through limiting beliefs is possible as soon as we realise those beliefs are holding us back.
This realisation can take some time as often those beliefs are picked up when we are young, as children from our parents, teachers and other significant people in our lives.

We tend to think we are not enough or are undeserving of certain achievements.
If such beliefs no longer serve us, then it is time to stop using them and replace them with more resourceful ones.
I’m encouraged by A A Milne’s thoughts in Winnie The Pooh where he says-

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and loved more than you’ll ever know”.

Listening? Are we engaged?

respectful listening
Listen fully

Listening is an art that requires attention over talent

spirit over ego, others over self ~ Dean Jackson

Why does this matter?

Good or effective communications are important to us, everyday.

There’s a reason we have two ears and one mouth, you guessed it, we need to listen more before we speak.

Often we are busy thinking about what we are going to say instead of listening to what is being said and missing the meaning.

Tonality of what is being said is 38% of a communication, whilst body language is a whopping 55%, followed by the words at 7%.

I found that amazing and valuable information and now I’m aware of how it affects my conversations.

How can we be better listeners in our conversations?

It involves being curious and building a connection, sometimes referred to as rapport with them.

If we reflect back what is being said, withhold judgement  and only offer advice if asked, goes a long way to establishing that connection.

Building mutual trust and finding a common ground is important.

I use this approach with my customers because it’s not about me.

Try it and see how your conversations can be more .
