based on our own limiting beliefs? Are we becoming more disconnected as they are more “connected” to technology and isolated from us and each other? And even if we confront these issues at home, what do we need to do to help them function in a society that is perpetuating the same systemic problems?
It can take a lifetime to confront limiting beliefs but understanding and accepting your children, employees, and colleagues as they are and reinforcing that they ARE ENOUGH is a place to start. At the same time, as parents, leaders, and community members, we must also send the message YOU ARE ENOUGH in both words and actions. Our message should be YOU ARE WORTHY BEYOND MEASURE. Just imagine what potential can be freed up if we share this belief with our children, family, colleagues, and employees. My modest contribution to this has been the formation of the Hollister Institute – which helps our team and colleagues reach their full potential through effectiveness, communications, and leadership skills. For all of us, the time to start is NOW to acknowledge the “limiting beliefs” epidemic and reach deep into our personal ecosystems to make a difference.
Starting today, add this practice to your personal and professional toolkit. Next time you experience some fear or self-doubt, take a moment to observe the narrative going through your mind. Stop and ask yourself — is this based in fact or truth? Rather than being closed down by unfounded fears, rewrite the narrative from a new perspective, a place of commitment to your worthiness! Then, take action in a positive direction toward your goal.
