Believe You Can & You Will Excel Yourself

Believe You Can & You Will Excel Yourself

hand-1635144_960_720Have you ever had that feeling of self doubt? You know that feeling I am talking about!?
You want to do something so bad, you feel it running through your blood but you just don't believe deep down inside that you can do it..

Many spend a lifetime wanting to do so many things with there lives but they put up these blocks, barriers that get in the way from you even allowing this dream or desire to take shape.  They just don't believe in themselves enough.

Why do we do this??
It boils down to fear, but its not all as it seems to be..
The mind is a powerful tool. We create the blocks as a security blanket to protect ourselves from failing.

Here is a question for you? If you never try anything new or anything risky, how can you ever know if anything works?
All of the products produce in the world started as a dream and it took those brave individuals to go through the motions of trial and error. This then resulted in a perfected finish product.

Its that leaping into the unknown that most find terrifying. For me I was the same, until I learnt to flip my thoughts and look at things from a different perspective. Why not look at it in a whole new light?
See the unknown as an exciting opportunity and an unwritten chapter of your life. You are the author and you have total control of what happens in this adventure called ‘YOUR LIFE', yes its ‘YOURS' and no-one elses.

I don't ever claim to be perfect and neither should you. Its a our flaws and quirky ways that make each one of us unique.

hand-1635146_960_720When I jumped in head first to the world of online business, I was terrified & I had so many people telling me that it won't work and its a waste of money. The people whom doubted the most were close friends and family. The words scam and pyramid scheme came up more times than you could imagine.

I soon learnt that they weren't the ones paying my bills and let everything they said go over my head. You know that caused a little family drama for a temp time but it made a point.

You need to learn how to stop allowing others actions and thoughts effect your life. This takes time and practice. All those doubters have whats call a closed mindset and you have whats called a growth mindset.

Here is the truth – The reason they are in so much doubt is because they themselves are scared and are projecting there fearful thoughts onto you.

Begin to surround yourself with like-minded people that will have a positive impact on your daily living.  Remove all that is not serving you well.

Although a self employed marketer is working in the comfort of there own home environment, it still has its hectic, high pressure way of getting you stressed from time to time.

Whereas with running your own home run business, means you have everything in the A-Z of business to deal with oneself… This can be highly stressful and this is where CBT and Mindset Success would come into place..

Check out this great training video.. How to manage your thinking to reduce stress, improve leadership, resilience, communication..

How To Challenge Your Thoughts

Learning a technique of challenging all of your negative thoughts can able you to control anxiety and/or low mood. When people are feeling low or anxious, their thoughts can often be extreme or unrealistic.
This doesn't mean that you are crazy though!!
It simply means that you sussed out the way to keep your thoughts at bay…

CBT has a name for this and call these types of thoughts Negative Automatic Thoughts or Nats.
We all know that thoughts can cause high influence over our emotions, behaviour and vice versa, it is important to learn how to challenge some of our Nats.
Although some people understand that their negative thoughts may not be true, it can be
very difficult for people with anxiety or low mood to differentiate between the two and they often take their negative thoughts as fact.

Here are Excellent Examples of Nats including-

  • “Nobody likes me”
  • “Everything always goes wrong for me”
  • “If I am late for work, I will lose my job”
  • “They think I’m stupid”

What is the difference between a thought and an emotion?
The above are examples of thoughts, usually a statement about something or someone.
A thought is usually a sentence or statement.
An emotion is a word which describes how we feel, and is usually one word.
Examples of emotions include angry, happy, anxious, depressed, etc.
When people are feeling anxious, there are a number of unhelpful thinking styles that they may be using.
An example is fortune telling, and usually involves predicting a negative event or outcome for a future event.

Thought Traps
When catching your Nats, you may also find that there is a theme to your
negative thinking. We call these thought distortions of thought traps. A
number of these are described below:

#1. ALL OR NOTHING THINKING
You see things in extreme or in black and white.
“It is either perfect, or it is a mess”, “My friend likes me or he doesn’t.”

#2. OVER-GENERALISATION
You see a single negative event as proof that other similar events will turn out the same way.
if one person behaved in a spiteful way to you, then all people behave in this way.

#3. MENTAL FILTER
You pick out a single negative detail and dwell on it, viewing the whole situation as negative.
Refusing to notice any positives or anything that went well/you did well.

#4. DISQUALIFYING THE POSITIVE
You reject positive experiences by insisting they ‘don’t count’ for some reason or another.
In this way you can maintain a negative belief that is contradicted by your everyday experiences.

#5. JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS
You make a negative interpretation even though there are no definite facts that support your conclusion.
Mind Reading – you conclude that someone is reacting negatively to you, but you do not check this out with them.
Fortune Telling – You anticipate that things will turn out badly, and you feel that your prediction is an already established fact.

#5. MAGNIFICATION (Catastrophic)
You exaggerate the importance of things, such as, something you may have thought was wrong.
You inappropriately shrink your achievements or desirable qualities.

#6. EMOTIONAL REASONING
You assume that your negative emotions necessarily reflect the way things really are “I feel like a failure, therefore, I am one”.

#7. SHOULD/MUST STATEMENTS
You set your self standards of what you perceive you ‘should’ or ‘must’ be doing. These standards are often too high and unrealistic.
The emotional consequence is guilt.
When you direct should statements towards others, you feel anger, frustration and resentment.

#8. LABELING AND MISLABELING
This is an extreme form of over generalizing. Instead of describing your error, you attach a negative label to yourself: ‘I’m a loser’.
When someone else’s behaviour bothers you, you attach a general label to them ‘he’s an idiot’.
Mislabeling involves describing an event with language that is highly colored and emotionally loaded.

#9. PERSONALIZING
You see yourself as the cause of some negative external event, when in fact you did not have primary or any responsibility.

Activities For You To Try:
Have a think about your own unhelpful ways of thinking?  Can you recognize a pattern?

Exercises like these are highly effective in retraining the brain. I have work books full of them and have used them myself from time to time over the years.  I like to incorporate them into my team training to keep a healthy mindset.
