“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.”
The things you choose to believe about yourself have a huge impact on your success.
In fact, simply believing that you can do something massively boosts your potential to get it done.
One study even found that students who were taught that their intelligence is malleable consistently outperformed their peers. Notably in the study, the academic performance of girls, even in areas like mathematics where female students tend to under-perform, equaled that of boys.
In other words, because they knew they could improve, they did improve.
But unfortunately the opposite holds just as true. If you believe you can’t—then prepare to prove yourself right.
Not because you aren’t actually capable, but because you believe you aren’t.
It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy—an irrational belief about yourself that holds you back.
Needless to say, these kinds of beliefs can be hugely damaging to you and your business, especially as a fellow businesswoman.
So today I’m going to share an easy technique to help you weed out irrational beliefs before they take their toll.
