When you let go of who you are…. What? How do you know who you are?
First, the best way of knowing yourself is to routinely use self-introspection examinations. Record your answers to the questions over time and then use this record to track your answers and understand yourself.
Second, ask trusted friends and family to give you an honest assessment of yourself and your abilities. They know you best and their insight will be quite helpful. You may be surprised at how willing they are to do this. Keep in mind the saying, “Cherish the friend who tells you the harsh truth, although they would rather tell you a loving lie”.
In order to grow, you have to be willing to let go of who you are. Get out of your comfort zone and become comfortable with the unknown. Your self-destructive behavior governed by limiting beliefs needs to be identified and changed.
Through the self-introspection process, you can identify limiting beliefs. It takes time to change them. It is a slow and gradual process using the technique of “positive re-interpretation of negative thoughts”. This is the process of re-thinking and wording negative thoughts by using positive words. When you change your negative thinking to positive thinking, over time, you will gradually change your belief system.
What do you need to grow?
First, in order to grow, you must be open minded. Be willing to explore new horizons and not filter the information through your personal belief system. Your way is not always the best way.
Second, study what you are passionate about. When you follow your passion, you are willing to research and dig deeper for the facts and truths.
Third, develop and use a networking system. ASK!!! Ask those you know and trust. Some of the best sources for information include professional organizations such as Small Business Administration, Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club. Also, you can join a Mastermind Group or hire Coaches and Mentors. Bottom line, “Don’t re-invent the wheel”, just learn how to make it work for you.
Fourth, make a plan, set goals and deadlines. Just make sure they are obtainable and celebrate when you reach each one. Growth is a gradual step by step process.
Fifth, use the technique of visualization. See yourself growing and reaching what you desire. When you use Vision Boards, concentrate on images of what you want. By doing so, you align your thoughts and thinking towards achieving your goal. Gradually, by making decisions with your goal in mind you will achieve the growth you are looking for.
It’s really a simple process; don’t let situations get you down; learn the process of managing yourself and thus situations. There is a self-improvement system created by Dr. Joe Vitale, called the Secret Mirror, which teaches you how to become successful and grow.
