By the time I had left school, I had learned that there were many things I really wasn’t very good at.
Progress was always painfully slow whatever I tried to do - and I was perplexed about what was holding me back.
I had, unknowingly, established a series of limiting beliefs about my capabilities that affected many areas of my life. My unconscious strategy was little more than an attempt to avoid pain. If you’ve ever heard anyone say, “Don’t expect too much or you’ll be disappointed,” you'll know what I’m referring to.
This way of thinking became deeply rooted and started to affect many other areas – perhaps every other area - of my life.
So what was missing? Surely I had more resources available to me at these moments of challenge? So why couldn’t I step up as I needed to?
This was the point at which I started my search for a way to access the resources that I truly believed lay dormant within me. Somehow I needed to bring this arsenal of abilities into play when I needed them most – to bring up the right card at the right time.
What I’ve come to realise is that there really is a highly capable team inside each one of us that is able to bring its abilities to the fore whenever the situation demands it.
