Over the past couple of weeks my focus has been drawn to beliefs, in particular ‘Limiting Beliefs’. I have chatted to people over Linkedin about it, and it has been raised during a course I am doing called ‘YES to Success’, run by Deborah Poneman.
While examining and clearing negative beliefs is big part of the work I do, it feels as though this area is definitely being highlighted as something to focus on at the moment, both for others, and for my own journey.
During periods of change, our beliefs become really important, because if they are negative they can really block us. Having positive beliefs doesn’t mean you don’t have problems or challenges, or make you superhuman, it just means you can manage stressful situations with more confidence and creativity.
I found this blog in my drafts section, and wish that I had published it sooner, especially when I read the following sentence…..
“It is said that a crisis is the best way to change habits, but why wait? What happens if it is too late?”
The sad truth is that for some businesses it may already be too late, and they won’t survive the current crisis, especially those in the hospitality industry. Many businesses have been forced to close, and the opportunity to re-open seems a long way off.
When I ask people if they have a good relationship with money, the answer is generally ‘yes’ or ‘no’, however, the answer is never quite a simple as this.Even when we think we have our money under control, the reality may actually be very different.
One of the key areas I work on with people is MONEY BLOCKS because everyone has them, the problem is they don’t always know it.
So, what are money blocks, and why are they so important?
More people are currently experiencing higher levels of stress and anxiety, which has a huge effect on our physical and mental health; most importantly, it lowers the immune system. Money is one of the biggest sources of stress for many people at the best of times and many are finding these stresses magnified at the moment.
I’m currently exploring ways to tackle money mindfully in order to help people manage their money stress.
