Expanding Your Belief Boundaries
We all have belief boundaries; you can either be defined by them or expand beyond them, continuing to push the boundaries of what you believe is possible.
It’s like I talked about last week- stretching yourself. You need to do the belief work and expansion necessary within yourself to accommodate big dreams and goals. And this happens in increments.
Like a person who sets a goal to earn a million dollars. They have to do the belief work to truly believe that it’s possible for them. They need to energetically stretch beyond where they currently are to hold more income, success, and if they want to hold onto the money, then release any guilt or resistance that would make it disappear. They need to feel into and match the frequency of that much money. Once they achieve their goal and can handle and own it, they set a higher goal, expanding into more allowing, more willingness, more belief work, and more releasing resistance, as well as increased receiving, so they can now imagine themselves as a multimillionaire.
An intern doesn’t become a CEO overnight. A pilot doesn’t go from training to being Captain of flying huge planes. It’s a process.
One of my favorite stories is of a girlfriend who started as a Production Assistant on commercials. She did her job to the best of her ability and learned everything she could. At a certain point she knew she was ready for more, so she learned all she could about the next level of her career and then claimed to herself, “I’m a Production Coordinator now.”
When companies would come to hire her as a P.A., she’d say, “I’m not a Production Assistant anymore, I’m a Production Coordinator.”
Was that scary for her to claim to people? Absolutely! Did she lose out on work? Totally. But she kept believing it, while saying it to herself and to everyone who tried to hire her. And lo and behold, somebody did. Because they knew how good she had been as a P.A., and they wanted her on the job.
She continued to do that, slowly but consistently over time, up leveling herself whenever she was ready to take those leaps, ultimately becoming an Executive Producer.
Was it easy at times? No! Did that stop her? No! She kept expanding the image of herself to hold more of how she saw herself in the world and the jobs she knew she could do, as well as keeping that end goal in mind of where she was headed. It wasn’t comfortable, it wasn’t easy to turn down work, but she kept doing it every time she was ready for an expansion. She would learn all she could about her next step, and she kept expanding her beliefs to believe it was possible for her.
If there’s any part of you that says, “well she could do it, but I can't,” that’s a lie. She wasn’t superhuman, she didn’t have an in in the industry; she did the internal work.
This holds true for any goals and dreams you have from career to finances to health to relationships.
Every action and expansion, no matter how small, leads towards your end dream. But you have to participate by believing it’s possible and you have to keep stretching your imagination beyond your comfort zone.
See yourself having the end dream and feel what that feels like. You got this; I believe in you!
