Whatever stage you are at on the entrepreneurial journey there are going to be times when your belief system is tested. When you ask yourself: “Can I really do this?” “Do I deserve to be successful?” “Can I make money out of my business idea?” This can then develop into negative behavioural patterns like procrastination, self-doubt, comparisonitis, fear, feeling disconnected from your purpose.

Not being sure what your next steps are and staying stuck can damage your belief system. Not “owning” your expertise and feeling like your self-confidence as the founder of your business is not where it should be.

Saying no to opportunities that you know deep down would be great for you.

My Story

I went through most of my adult life with a set of limiting beliefs. They could easily have stopped me in my tracks and prevented me from taking the leap from corporate career to PR consultant. Then again retraining as an NLP Practitioner and Coach.

When I reflect now, I realise that those periods of procrastination and not stepping out of my comfort zone were not down to what I consciously thought about myself.  But a set of deeply rooted subconscious beliefs that were holding me back without me realising it.

Did you know that 95% of everything we do comes from the subconscious mind? That means every decision, action, thought and emotion. It drives our behaviour.

95% of everything we do comes from the subconscious mind.

As an NLP practitioner, supporting my clients to overcome their limiting beliefs is a core part of my work. Unless we consciously reset our belief system as an adult we are holding onto old and outdated beliefs formed in childhood that simply do not serve us. We are not aware of them on a conscious level. However, subconsciously they direct our behaviour, thoughts and actions. We find the same stories playing out in our heads on repeat about what is and is not possible for us. You can be sure those deep-rooted historic beliefs are at play.

Our belief system acts as our inner satellite navigation so if it is not set to success mode then we are going to find ourselves hitting the same blocks time and time again.

To overcome your limiting belief system, you need to uncover what they are, where they came from, accept that it is not your fault that you have those beliefs and then start the process of resetting your belief system.

3 ways to reset your belief system

These are 3 things you can do that work at a core level.

Stories and Language – How are you speaking to yourself?

How to Reset Your Belief System for Success and Overcome Self Doubt?

What are the stories you are telling yourself? What language are you using? Often the stories we tell ourselves about what is possible for us are recurring stories. However, they are made up of outdated beliefs that coming from childhood.

The language we use when we speak to ourselves can be empowering and motivating. Or it can stop us in our tracks. How we communicate with ourselves and our self-talk is crucial.
Making a conscious decision to reframe negative thoughts as they happen will gradually reduce the “charge” behind a limiting belief. It takes practise! However, it is an important step to take when it comes to resetting your belief system.

Visualise your Future - What do you want to create more of?

One of the most powerful things you can do to support your mindset and belief system is to adopt a daily meditation practice. 15 minutes in the morning is my recommendation. 

I use meditation to ground me. It also connects me to what I am looking to create more of in my life and business. I use it to visualise my next level.

Some of the questions you can ask yourself when you are reflecting:

  • How does the next version of me show up?
  • How am I behaving?
  • What habits do I have?
  • What does it feel like to be this person?
    How am I interacting with people and who am I surrounding myself with?

Match your Inner Desires to your Outside Reality – Create a New Routine

It is going to be much easier to create more of what you want if you are adopting new habits and behaviours that serve you.

What do you need to shed in your life. It could be old routines. People who are not supporting and inspiring you or lifestyle habits.

Think about what you need and your non-negotiables. What do you need to do each day to stay on track?

For me my morning grounding and visualisation session are non-negotiable. It shifts my mood and helps me to start the day on the right note. It helps me to be more productive and creative and is the ultimate gift to myself each day.

6 Steps to Owning Your Niche

Think of a bag. When you own it, you feel secure knowing that it’s yours and that you can utilise it in a way that feels best for you. You have the confidence to know it’s not borrowed, stolen or rented. You must still be careful with it, but it’s not a worry.
It’s the same when it comes to your business niche. Ownership prevents us from fearing a saturated market.
