In case you missed it, here are some harsh facts to go with you morning latte-
- Almost 200 species of living beings have gone extinct in the past 50 years alone — a rate of two per year.
- ‘Dead zones’, i.e. Ocean locations where nothing can live, have increased by 75 per cent
- Right now, an estimated 780 million people on the planet have no access to clean drinking water
- It is predicted that based of today’s rate of deforestation, we may only be left with 10% of our rainforests by the year 2030
- & probably, most importantly- global warming is causing unprecedented climate change that could result in the Earth’s 6th mass extinction event.
Why am I sharing this checklist of doom & gloom with you? As much as I may come across like the Grinch who stole Christmas, I generally tend to have a very positive outlook to life (I mean, as a Life Coach one would hope so!) however, these are the ugly facts that many of us choose to ignore and unless we pay attention and choose to do something, we risk losing… well, everything.
You see, I help small and medium sized businesses overcome any limitations that may be experiencing to help them grow and here’s the surprising fact- most of the time, those limitations lie in the minds of the Entrepreneur.
However, I’ve noticed is that these ‘Self-Limiting Beliefs’ as I like to call them, are most prevalent in the minds of another group of people; those who wish to start their own business, BUT DON’T.
These beliefs could be anything from ‘I have a brilliant idea but I don’t know how to run a business’ to ‘What if I fail and lose what I’ve worked hard for’ and everything in between. But once that limiting belief is converted into a positive mindset, I have seen mice turn into self-sufficient, employee-hiring, six-figure earning lions.
There are a number of exercises we go through to create this transformation, but one of the most important ones that I want to share with you today is this-
I teach my clients to get out of their own head and into the minds of the people they wish to serve. I help them understand that by NOT starting their business, they are depriving their potential client off a product or service that could add so much value into their lives.
So if you have a business idea that you believe could, dare I say, save this world, then it’s no longer important for you to bring that vision to life, it is imperative.
Thus, here’s my message to you-
Mother Earth and all her children are under threat and she’s going to need all the help she can get. If you can do something within the realms of your current job, then great. But if it requires you starting something of your own, and the only thing standing in the way is your limiting beliefs, then kick aside; you have more important things to do.
Limiting beliefs have been responsible for the destruction of countless dreams.
We can’t allow it to be responsible for the destruction of the world.
