Do you find yourself constantly repeating the same emotions, thoughts, and behaviors? They might be a result of the beliefs you don't even realize you have! Today, I'm going to tell you how taking a "belief inventory" can help you take stock of these beliefs.
Even more importantly, I'll share with you an exercise to start changing a belief.
Here's why it matters: We all have deep beliefs and values that create our choices. In turn, these beliefs and values unconsciously support or sabotage our lives…and these automatic programs run 24/7 without us knowing it!
In this post, I'm going to help you upgrade your own personal software by questioning your long-held beliefs.
Together, we will not only discover your values that positively and negatively impact your life, but we will work to create new beliefs where needed. Then, we can eliminate those old patterns that repeat themselves that have left you getting the same results over and over again.
By the end of this post, we'll start to:
As members of my Soulful Leadership program will tell you, a big part of identifying the beliefs that hold you back is determining what your beliefs are in the first place.
To do this, I have members go through an extensive Belief Revealing Exercise, composed of over 100 questions.
Here are just a few examples:
Often, it isn't until these questions are actively asked and answered that we realize what holds us back.
Let's say one of the beliefs you've come to realize you hold is that money does not come easily and you will never have enough. At the same time, you've realized this belief is holding you back in life.
Now, you're ready to change this belief.
Anytime you are faced with a financial choice, return to this belief practice to ask yourself if you are making decisions based on your old belief system, or the new belief system that serves you better.
It's time to give yourself some credit: you've just taken the first big steps toward rewiring the automatic, unconscious programming that runs your life. You've identified a belief that's holding you back, questioned if this belief is true, located the source of this belief, and worked on creating and practicing your new belief system.
But if you're like most of us, it's not just a single belief that's holding you back. You could have beliefs about money, love, health, your potential, and so much more. And every single one of these beliefs could be holding you back in some way until you question them.
In my Soulful Leadership course, we devote an entire week to beliefs, and I share my ENTIRE extensive belief inventory with members. This can be one of the most life-changing weeks not only in the course, but in your life! And I want that for you too.
