I was working with attendees at an event this weekend and it struck me. No, not an attendee… although I have been known to push hard to help others achieve their potential success. It is what a great coach or mentor does when it’s needed.
What struck me was the people I keep seeing at my events and working with fit into 3 distinct types… yet each have many of the same challenges to achieve the success they each truly want.
These 3 types are:
1. Those of you who don’t know what to do to change your results in your life. You know you want something different and either just don’t know what it is or how to get there.
This is you when you realize you are unhappy or unfulfilled with your life after leading it according to what most people have learned from their parents, friends, teachers, etc.
The plan you follow may sound something like go to school, study hard, get a good job, work hard and you will become rich. Sound familiar?
And you have realized this plan is not working out like you were promised. Each year you seem to get further away from the dream.
Don’t worry. I’m here to change this for you.
2. Those of you who have all the knowledge to achieve a new phase in your life, yet still have taken little to no action on the knowledge. This is the analysis paralysis group as I like to call them.
This type keeps gathering information and training so that when you do move, all actions will be done correctly. If you are here, you learned exactly what our school system teaches, make sure you get the correct information and study hard to make sure you don’t fail. No one wants to fail “the test” in their life – whether this is a new business idea being put into action, an investment, or any decision to do something new and different.
I know you will keep reading since I know you want all the information to make the right decision. I’m here to ensure you get where you want successfully too.
3. Those of you who know what to do, have done it, and still feel like there is more to life than what they have now. This is the group many others view as successful even while they feel there is so much more they want.
If this is you, your business may be doing well. You own your own business, are making money, have what appears to be a great life… all the while thinking, I thought there would be more satisfaction to this or is this as good as it gets?
I have great news for you in this group too. You may be closer to your ultimate dream than you think.
Which one of these 3 best describes you and where you are now in your pursuit of happiness in your life?
What I have found is the challenges each of the 3 types of people face in many cases boil down to one foundational piece – mindset!
Now I know you may be thinking, what do you mean my mindset is my challenge, Paul? How does mindset have anything to do with me and where I am at right now in my life? I have other challenges which are much more important to knock out first.
Here is what I will let you in on which I have learned by working with thousands of students over the past 10 years to release us. Each and every one of us has limiting beliefs which hold us where we are now in our lives. Many times, you have no idea what these are or how to smash them to release yourself to explosive growth and happiness.
Let me give you an example. When you learned how to ride a bicycle, did you just go out and hop on it and start riding like you do now? Of course not.
Your parents would run behind the bike holding on to the seat until you got the hang of balancing, pedaling, steering and focusing on what you were doing. At some point, they would let go of the bike to let you do it yourself.
Well, if you’re parents were like mine, they told you the first couple times they let go of the bike. As soon as they told me they were letting go, I started to lose my balance and stopped out of fear of falling since I had already experienced that result... not fun. Are you with me so far?
After a few times of telling me and my falling, my father finally just let my bicycle go without telling me he was going to do it. I kept right on pedaling down the street another 25 feet before realizing he wasn’t holding me up.
What changed for me in learning to ride a bike? One thing only – the limiting belief where I needed my father to hold me up to ride my bike. I did it just fine when I thought he was there. When I knew he was gone, the limiting belief kicked in and I lost my balance.
My father proved how this belief was limiting by not telling me he was going to let me go... allowing me to succeed. Nothing else had changed. Just my belief he was there or not providing me the confidence to ride my bike.
Once I rode without him behind me, I realized I was able to ride a bike without assistance. This changed my world. Now I was able to ride all over my area without anyone else’s assistance. It opened up a much wider world for me.
This is exactly how your limiting beliefs hold you back from the life you want to lead. Throughout this short email series, I am going to show you what this looks like for each of the types above and how to conquer these mindset challenges.
