. This may well not be the most popular post we ever wrote...and that's OK. If you have gotten to know us at all..sometimes the purpose of our writing is to awaken thought...do a reality check...encourage "pondering"..(Thank you Michael Jacobs ) which may lead to some revelations. Revelations are in and of themselves. sometimes cause for change if we allow our minds to be open to new ideas and a different way to approach things. Everyone has a reason for placing different values on things...and determining their comfort levels and priorities.
It may be...the people you choose as business associates...in Brokerages, Lending institutions and other companies whether they are a national company, a franchise or locally owned...there will always be people, rules etc. you like...and some you may not. That is the Human part of all of us...you won't love everything about anyplace all the time.
It is limiting beliefs that limit anyone's abilities to change or reach a goal.Goals can be physical, emotional,business, financial...social..and or a combination of these things. Is there more than one way to achieve them ...have you allowed yourself the "journey of objectivity" ? Did you examine the possibilities that there are different ways to approach something that will yield better/different results ? You can give yourself permission to examine your beliefs...and change them without the imagined repercussions that have restrained you in the past. People will only respect me if I....drive this car, this is the "best zip code"...people choose to do business because I am or am not...do or do not...Upon more careful examination, you may well find out your perceptions are only your own...not the people you seek to attract in business be they as associates or clients.
Recently I have had discussions with people in a variety of situations about their limiting beliefs ...some faced with new challenges in different aspects of their lives...some who are open to new opportunities. Being open to new opportunities and changes doesn't mean you have to dislike where you are or what you do or how, where you do it...It means you are going beyond your limiting beliefs. I had a great discussion with someone who said..."I want to learn more...I don't believe I understand all the aspects well enough to make a decision."
Knowledge is Power...and you can't gain any more when your beliefs are built on assumptions. It is freeing...be open to discovery....and enjoy the results. Amen and Women.
