Break free from limiting beliefs.
Most of us will at some time in our lives experience a thought or feeling that holds us back or maybe even stops us from doing something.
Now a little bit of caution or thinking ahead is a good thing don't get me wrong, for instance if you've decided to make a bungy jump then you'll recognise that your caution has a purpose it's part of the decision making process. You'll chose a reliable company with a proven track record for throwing people into a ravine in a safe way.
But when we find ourselves unable to ever take a risk, however small, usually hidden away in the background is a limiting belief.
FIVE STEPS TO KICK START CHANGE
STEP 1 – TAKE TIME TO NOTICE
What happens immediately before your thought or reaction. Write it down and see if a pattern forms. Is it stress? Just a habit? Identify the trigger and then tap to reduce the feeling.
STEP 2 – GET FOCUSED
When I work with clients we focus on four elements that make up their story.
The symptoms or side effects of your situation now.
The emotions that come up for you.
The events – the things people have said to you, experiences.
Beliefs turned into facts – What you have made your experiences mean.
STEP 3 – THE GOOD, THE BAD AND......?
Good things - Write down 5 good things about this behaviour
Bad things - Now write down 5 bad things about this behaviour.
STEP 4 -MINDMAP
Have you ever created a mindmap? Don't worry a list will do but the important thing is to map your flow of ideas around your thinking as you focus on the steps above. You're creating your Tapping Map. The whys and whens supporting your current way of thinking or reacting. Then using EFT, focus on each aspect, event and belief and keep tapping until you no longer feel or think that way.
Yes it will take time and effort but if you are committed to stop, starting by understanding your behaviour is the first habit changing step.
