Sooner or later every business person hears they need to put systems in place. These systems automate the business and allow it to grow. Systems bring consistency into your day and eliminate overwhelm.
Now you can set up all kinds of systems in your business but if you neglect this one, you’ll end up limiting your business success. Your business success is really a reflection on how you see yourself successful.
Often a person will select facts to support the belief no matter how false.
The most important system for your business is your belief system. The higher the confidence you place in yourself, the higher your achievements. Your belief system directly affects your self confidence.
What Are Beliefs?
Technically, they are the conscious and unconscious information that you accept as true. Your beliefs govern your thoughts, words, and actions.
Once a person “believes” something is true (whether it is or not) they will “act” as if it were. Often a person will select facts to support the belief no matter how false.
How Do We Form Our Belief Systems?
Beliefs form in response to some basic need.
Your first beliefs generated out of the need for love and approval by your parents
The second group of beliefs generated from your need to feel you belong and accepted by your peers
The third group comes from the need for emotional and physical well being. This group includes the need for self esteem, need to protect yourself from painful emotional, the need for pleasure and excitement. The need for meaning and purpose in your life belongs in the group along with the need to fee physically safe.
Your belief system creates your self-image. Your self image is how you see yourself… see your worth as a human being. If you perceive yourself with a low self image, you will doubt yourself, your decisions and undercharge for your services.
Your self esteem is how you feel about yourself. Low self-esteem may cause you to feel you don’t deserve success or your desires.
Challenge & Change Your Beliefs
Your beliefs dictate the action you take. Your actions will support your belief system. You make your own world
It’s important to periodically challenge your beliefs to see if you may be operating from the wrong point of view. Especially challenge anything that is not working in your life.
Ask yourself “Are my beliefs rational?” “Could I be mistaken?” Question everything and draw your own conclusions.
Just Believe in yourself!
Changing your belief system begins with changing your thinking. Change your thoughts and you change your world. Program your subconscious to see yourself successful.
