Hitting A Ceiling… Again?
Have you ever tried to move to the next level in some area and keep hitting a ceiling? Feeling stuck can be frustrating and can lead to despair if we don’t understand what’s happening! In the area of speaking, you may be experiencing a desire to succeed beyond the scope of what you have up to this point but don’t know how. Maybe you find that every time you are about to break through you self-sabotage? What’s with that?
An ancient proverb says, “As a man believes in his heart, so he is.” In other words, what you believe about yourself in your heart will determine the boundaries of your success. Going beyond those boundaries requires that you examine the root of your beliefs and learn to expand them or change them. Whenever you try to go beyond the boundaries of what you believe to be true about yourself, your heart and mind will kick into survival mode and try to maintain what is normal. This is where we hit an internal ceiling or a wall! Don’t despair you can break through and go to the next level! It will require a commitment to pursue ongoing personal growth and development.
This week- observe any re-occurring patterns that indicate you may be hitting up against a boundary or limiting belief about what you can and can’t do. Journal about what thoughts and feelings surround that experience and see if you can identify the core belief that’s driving the behaviour. Embracing new levels of change and personal growth is foundational to becoming a transformational speaker.
