Please Pass the Cereal

Do you ever feel overwhelmed? You know, the kind of overwhelmed that makes you want to eat 11 bowls of Cheerios™ at 10 p.m. just to chill out? The problem with feeling overwhelmed is that it keeps you from problem solving your way to a solution.

I am currently coaching a woman who wants to do what I do. She wants to empower and inspire women (and men) to get what they really want and enjoy their life. But, she feels so far from where she needs to be to make her big goal happen.

Hearing her describe all of her concerns, obstacles, and self beliefs about how impossible it is to leave her office job, I feel nothing but respect for her. I mean, really. Everything she told me is real to her. But, even with her obstacles, she still wants to change careers and I know she can do it.

What gets in the way of getting what you want in life are your beliefs and your values. It's your beliefs and your values that controls your entire life. And everyday, you decide which emotional states (your values) you want to either feel or avoid based off of beliefs.

When we look at beliefs, we know that all human behavior is belief driven.  So, if one of your beliefs is that you can't be successful, you're probably not going to be successful. If you believe you can succeed, you'll most likely succeed. Those are just different beliefs.

And, if your values are in conflict with one another, you're in conflict. By that I mean, let's say that one of your values is being adventurous. But you also need security (another value), now you're in conflict. You'll be torn as to which direction you want your life to go.

The bottom line is it's your beliefs and your values that control your entire life. If you desire a change in your life, begin by uncovering your beliefs and values. And if they're negative, resolve it by creating positive self beliefs that align with your personal values.
