Blueprints To Success

Create a success blueprint is you need to be sure that you’ve cleared your self limiting beliefs. Here’s the process that I recommend to do that. Get out a piece of paper and create a T diagram. Draw a horizontal line across the page and draw a vertical line down the page so you have two columns. The left hand column is called your Self Limiting Beliefs. The right hand column is called your Empowered Beliefs. This next part requires that you become like a loving detective and search inside yourself as to what self limiting beliefs you would need to reprogram in order to reach your goal, in order to really manifest that vision statement.

Some examples of self limiting beliefs that stop people, (and the biggest one right now) is “I can’t reach my financial goals because of the economy.” So that statement is a self limiting belief that belongs in your left hand column. Another one that’s very common that people have is “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t have what it takes to succeed.” Over the years of coaching clients, real estate agents in particular, I’ve heard many self limiting beliefs that create an anti success blueprint.

Realize that self-limiting beliefs are not facts, they’re just beliefs. You’re not stuck with them. Do not judge yourself for having them, because at one point in your life these beliefs were survival strategies. Get as many down in the left hand column as you can. Take some guesses.

Once you’ve done that, go to the right hand column and for every self limiting belief you’ve written, write down your empowered belief. So if your self limiting belief says, “I can’t be visible” then write down “It’s now safe to be visible.” If your self limiting belief is “I’m not supposed to succeed” then write down “I am highly worthy of success and I’m supposed to succeed.” “I’m supposed to live my dreams.”

What you do after that is you want to totally release the left hand column, and one of the best methods to do that is called the “burn technique.” Simply cut the paper in half, burn the left hand column. Let it go in a ritual, and as it’s burning just say good-bye to all of the self limiting beliefs that you no longer need.

In the right hand column, I would recommend taking each of those empowering beliefs and putting each of them on an index card and then saying those empowered beliefs every day out loud with feeling to reprogram your self conscious mind. If the negative beliefs start to creep up again, simply use the power of your mind to interrupt those beliefs. Just say, “Stop.” Take a deep breath and put in an empowered belief. In this way you are maximizing your possibility of a Success Blueprint for the year 2013.

Just to summarize, be sure to create your vision statement with feeling and be sure after that that you dig down and bring to the surface any possible self limiting beliefs that could be getting in your way. Be sure you burn those, and then implant or install your new positive Empowered Beliefs and enjoy creating your Success Blueprint.
