Most of the time, when thoughts that come from our internal saboteur slap us upside the head, we ignore the idea and never think about it again. Now some of these thoughts are truly outrageous. But just think about those thoughts that you could have kept and at least spent some time evaluating them. I guarantee that in your pile of discarded forgotten ideas are nuggets that could have taken you much farther along in your journey than you find yourself today.
You see, the coaching process takes you inside where your limiting belief system resides and draws your belief system into the light of consciousness. Modifying those beliefs will change your thinking. Changing your thinking will change your behavior. Changing your behavior which will change your results. Your limiting beliefs cannot remain unchanged once they’re brought into the light of consciousness. As you become more aware, your limiting belief system becomes weaker.
Highly successful people are willing to be asked questions that require them to think at that deeper level. A coach can help you become more aware of the cause of your results instead of just simply watching them happen. You can begin to take full responsibility for your results and then become an active participant in changing them.
The journey from where you are today to where you want to be is like any other journey. You must establish the current reality in your life to change it. If you want to change the visible you must change the invisible. Improve the quality of your thinking and you will improve the quality of your results.
Your business and your life can only reflect the quality of thinking that you bring to it. So, you must understand what is influencing your current thinking. An introspective person is willing to challenge their deeply held beliefs when introduced to a great new idea, rather than listening to their internal saboteur. The process of coaching creates fresh eyes so that things that represented the greatest challenge to your success can now become the greatest contributor to it.
