Your Life (and Business) Is A Narrative Driven By Your Dominant Thoughts

The timeless saying ‘If you think you can you will, if you think you can’t you won’t” is the perfect example of becoming your thoughts.

Often our biggest battles in life are those that take place inside our own mind, and the self-limiting beliefs we impose on ourselves.

As someone who works with vulnerable people, I often work with clients who do not know their value or their worth, and therefore believe the many lies others have put over them. Today, I worked with a client who received some pretty big accolades on their work performance of which they had never heard about themselves. They are not used to hearing others tell them how important and valuable they are, especially from someone in a position of authority over their work life. The client found the positive feedback so overwhelming they broke down and cried, and when they received even more positive feedback they were so uncomfortable it lead to a full fledged panic attack.

It is so important, no matter where you are in your life or business, to keep your mind focused on what you want to achieve and gain in life, and to surround yourself with like minded positive people who share your values.

Conflicted relationships in both business and personal can really drag you down. You have to question continued involvement when values clash and constantly facing crises moments. Putting boundaries up and exiting those relationships may be best.

This is the lesson my client learned today. That there are people and circumstances they need to claim back their power from, put up boundaries with some, while completely terminating relationships with others. Their low self-esteem is rooted in toxic relationships with specific people who constantly discredit their abilities, resulting in them putting up emotional barriers of self-doubt to a point where they held themselves back from achieving greater success in life because they felt they were incapable of doing the work. When they heard from their superiors the confidence and abilities they see in them, it was an overwhelming experience because they are not used to people complimenting them.
