Are You Fighting for Your Limitations or Your Possibilities?
On this episode of But, How? A podcast to help visionaries bring their ideas to life.... I discuss the difference between arguing for your limitations and arguing for your possibilities.
As humans, we spend a lot of our time fighting for things - equality, our value, love, freedom, family, respect, etc.
And.... There is one things which each of us fights for everyday that is a bit more elusive: our limitations. Whether or not you consciously recognize it, you are likely fighting for your limitations everyday.
I know, I know. I can hear you saying, "But Bri. Why would I argue for my limitations? I don't want to live there or stay there. I would never argue for my limitations."
This habit is super sneaky and it comes from years and years of conditioning. It stems from the ideas of:
- his is how it's been, so this is how it is. (for example: I've been overweight since I was a child, so I'll be overweight forever. Or, I was raised to believe money is hard to come by, so I will always be financially broke.)
- I am X, so "THIS" is the truth about me. (for example: So-and-so told me once 20 years ago tha I am a bad writer, so the truth is I can't be a blogger like my heart desires. Or, I am not creative, so I could never be an entrepreneur/artist/author/etc.)
- I can't see the proof I want, which means "insert limiting belief here". (for example: I don't have income in my business yet, which means I'm a failure. Or, I have been applying to jobs for months and haven't booked a single job interview, which means I'm not employable.)
These thoughts sneak in like thieves in the night - you don't see them, you don't hear them and most of the time you don't even notice they're there! And yet.... it's these little thoughts and little beliefs that have a huge impact on what we create for our lives.
This week on 'But, How?' the conversation revolves around what it looks like to argue for your possibility, instead of your limitations. Because while shifting your perspective to argue for your possibility seems small.... it's literally one of the biggest changes you can make.
When you've listened - be sure to comment below with your insights + lightbulb moments!
Love + Leaps,
PS. If you're ready to do something about this habit and begin arguing for your possibilities..... there's nothing quite like taking this development work to the next level with the support of someone who has been there + the encouragement of others who are on the same path. I know how difficult it is to try to do it yourself - you don't know what you don't know, and it's really hard to see a different perspective if you've been trapped in your current thought perspective for decades. If you want to have a conversation about the possibilities available to you, schedule a call with me HERE. We'll spend 30 minutes jamming over the biggest barrier holding you back (spoiler alert: it's totally your thoughts, beliefs and mindset), then talk about the changes available to you by beginning to believe in and argue for your possibilities.
