Day 1: 5 Days to your Best Year Ever 2018
How to Overcome your Limiting Beliefs
Completed Day 1, and was it ever an eye-opener. I’ve been carrying around these beilefs inside my head? How I now “Believe the Possibility” first module has changed my mindset.
The first module, or Day 1, of the 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever 2018, was about 23 minutes of content. Following the video or audio content, we are presented with an exercise. Consuming content, has never been that hard for me. I’m a podcast and audiobook junkie, not to mention my addiciton to youtube “How To” has changed my life.
What is challenging for me, is applying what I learn. That was my #1 Limiting Belief. My addition to learning, needed to change. I reframed that though and belief to go a different direction. Within the private Pat Flynn mastermind group on Facebook, I shared the following:
Executive Career Coach
I teach self-eduction to leaders that feel stuck professionally and desire a meaningful career transition. Serving you through a collaborative process to find and communicate a clear ‘WHY.’
My biggest limiting belief is doing nothing but learning won’t get me where I want to go. Now I’m believing some new things and this blog post is evidence. I hadn’t been posting on a regular basis. Executing one of my values and goals is this post. I’m leaning on what I also have learned from the likes of Pat Flynn and Seth Godin, that consistency is key. My Beliefs on this are now:
I am addicted to doing.
Activating my learning will serve my audience.
The word of the day: AGENCY
My biggest takeaway from Day 1: the word agency. When Michael Hyatt uses this word in the training, I feel liberated! Much of what was happening to me, was influencing my behavior. In reality, those things that prevent us from doing what we know we need to do, come from our lack of knowing we control our responses.
Interestingly enough, when I looked up the meaning of agency, I got different usages. One stuck out:
from medieval Latin agentia, or agent meaning ‘doing’
Agency is doing? Wow, that hit what the beliefs were that were holding me back. Here’s another definition:
the capacity, condition, or state of acting or exerting power
How did I identify my limiting beliefs and liberating truths?
The other interesting thing that happened to me, much by accident, was the journal I’m using for this training. The journal was actually my Mindset Training journal from 2008 when I was in real estate and in a coaching program with Mike Ferry.
The first thing we deal with in this training was language of limiting beliefs. I found it very helpful in finding my current limiting beliefs to look at statements or things that include words similar to:
- Tried before
What do you think or feel is limiting your beliefs?
Pat Flynn’s Mastermind
The Best Year Ever bonus group on Facebook has been super supportive and impressively engaged. Pat is doing live streams daily and sharing his process. It’s a relief to know that someone as successful as Pat, is still really humble – and challenged – to take things to another level. He is human after all.
So the Day 1 live broadcast was well attended (about 40-50) and it felt really intimate and casual. Pat is incredibly transparent and continually communicates his gratitude. To learn more about Pat visit:
