Every time you repeat a story or belief about what’s possible for you, you are reinforcing containers to your potential.
This image is how I tried to explain it to a coaching client recently.
We fall in love with the safety, control and certainty that the cages or containers around us give us.
For example, if you say: “I could never do that” you feel safe that you won’t fail.
You also limit the possibility of being able to do it someday.
You’ve contained your potential.
It’s like a fixed mindset 2.0.
1.0 fixed mindset is ‘I am the way I am and I can’t get better’
2.0 fixed mindset is ‘I’ll stay the way I am so I don’t get better’
It’s a bullsh*t story.
Please stop letting beliefs contain you and your potential.
Becoming more of who you are and role-modelling this for others will change lives.
Re-authoring these beliefs and stories we tell about ourselves, other people and the world will change the world.
