Are You Limiting Your Career?

How many of us know that we were born without limitation? We all come into this world without fear, without knowing the words “I can’t.” So why is it that so many of us adults suffer from the self-talk of limitations and say the words “I can’t” more times than we will ever admit?

Now think about your daily life. Are you ignoring what you really want because fear is getting in the way? Are we settling for less than what you really want? Are we just passing the time at your place of work? Do we feel less than satisfied at the end of the workweek? Why are we settling for less than what we really want?

The answers might be right in front of us. Maybe WE are the reason we aren’t moving up the ladder. Or we might believe that we can only go so far. Perhaps we believe we are stuck on a path that is unfulfilling and we are powerless to change our situations.  We are all still those same fearless and limitless souls. For some reason, many of us have fallen into the trap of accepting the fears of others that are cast in our path and we let that lie stop us from even trying to go for what we were born to do. It doesn’t have to be this way. It’s never too late to break out of your comfort zone & try something new.

Not sure if you are the victim of that limiting self-talk? Then ask yourself these 5 questions.

  1. Is my job on track to my passion career?
  2. Why not?
  3. Am I excited to go to work each day?
  4. What is holding me back from doing what I really love as a job/career?
  5. What limiting beliefs do I need to overcome in order to go for what I really want?

Try this exercise and see what shows up. Now, just imagine a life living out your passion.  Living each day doing something that gets you up in the morning, puts a smile on your face and joy in your heart. What is your passion?  Leave a comment.
