BLOG:  WHAT STOPS YOU?

In a recent article we spoke about limiting beliefs and how they can affect you being successful in your business. This week we’ll explore this powerful topic further. You can experience greater FREEDOM as you begin to explore your beliefs and experience true transformation.

 

Look at the following list and without over- thinking or over-analyzing the statements just notice which ones have the most charge as you read down the list. You may find that there are many that might apply depending on what you are doing, who you are with and your general mood at a particular time. Circle the ones you are most apt to believe or think about much of the time. Be honest with yourself…no one else has to see this but you…
