Some years ago a dear friend and life coach asked me: “Why do you choose to feel that way?". After my initial thoughts of how dare you, I do not choose to feel this way, the situation is out of my control. I took a moment to reflect and thought maybe there is another way.
This was the start of a fascinating, challenging and rewarding journey of self-discovery, undertaking training in motivational interviewing, coaching and culminating in a master practitioner’s qualification in neuro linguistics techniques to help others learn and develop to be the best version of themselves.
So how often do you hear yourself say, I’m not very good at that, I’m not fit enough, slim enough, smart enough, clever enough? My favourite limiting belief is I don’t understand social media, as I struggle with this new technology, social media and the World Wide Web. Hey, there wasn’t even the internet when I did my degree!
We are often limited by our inner beliefs and yet why do we feel and think this way; is there really any evidence that we cannot achieve our dreams or potential. Surely, if we think differently, seek out the resources and training anything is possible – we are only limited by what we allow ourselves to believe.

And what if we never achieve the dream, surely we’ve been more fulfilled making a positive journey in the right direction rather than listening to negative self-doubts.
