How To Uncover Your Limiting Beliefs
I recently got the opportunity to hop on a coaching call with one of the founders of Health Coach Institute. This is where I have received all of my training, and I really believe it’s the best coaching school. My experience has been transformational so you can imagine my excitement when I got a call asking if I wanted to be coached by her. This was a live demo for 200 other people and it felt quite vulnerable, but I knew that I was with other supportive people who were eager to learn.
One of the patterns that I notice in myself is that I overschedule myself. I know I’m not alone in this, and you might be in this same place. You think you have to struggle in order to meet your goals. You believe that if you haven’t worked hard enough, you somehow don’t deserve to get where you want to go. You have a subconscious belief that guilt, shame and frustration are a prerequisite to a life of freedom and confidence.
I used to feel this way about my health, which is pretty counterproductive, right? Overwork yourself to be healthier. The patterns that were keeping me stuck back then were restricting, counting calories, measuring my food, and obsessing about what I was eating. I felt like I didn’t deserve to feel good and love my body until I looked a certain way. This was exhausting and it was a pattern that coaching helped me break. I’m sure this is similar to some of the things you may be struggling with and this is a big reason why I’m a coach. I really healed this pattern when it came to food, my health, and my body.
Now as I grow my business, the pattern has started creeping in again because as you’ve heard me say before- how you do one thing is how you do everything. This does not mean it wasn’t healed before, but as I have reached a new level in my own growth, more blocks have come to the surface. New level; new devil.
My time on this coaching call really helped me discover how these things are connected. We unraveled where I may have learned this pattern and why it is now showing up in my business. Growing up, I put so much pressure on myself to do well in school. Deep down there was this belief that if I don’t hustle, suffer, and work really hard, I somehow don’t deserve to be successful.
She really helped me see for myself that when I feel good, I produce my best work. When I feel good, I am a better coach. This means that when I feel good, everyone wins. That old belief is already untangling itself and my mind is already solidifying a new belief that serves me, and everyone around me, much better.
As a coach, I’m committed to personal development and growth and I can only take my clients as far as I’m willing to go. I can honestly say that I am willing to go very far to grow and become the best coach I can be, and I’m thrilled that I get to help others do the same.
If you’ve ever felt like you have to work really hard to feel healthy, that you have to restrict your food, eat things you don’t like, count and measure your food and beat your body up at the gym to reach your goals, you are not alone. You’ve learned this through the diet culture we live in as well as experiences in your childhood.
