Stop Listening to Your Limiting Beliefs and Start WinningNov 27, 2021
Seven Tips to Reclaim your Career Confidence
What if I told you that nothing is holding you back except yourself?
A lot of us go through life playing small by default. We take the easier road and convince ourselves it’s not our fault for not getting what we want out of life, and our career. You must create courage in your life, and shift it from the subconscious to the conscious. Stop listening to your limiting beliefs. Otherwise, you will never shift into the positivity and power it takes to succeed.
Tip #1: Find a way to surround yourself with people that normalize the experience you are avoiding.
That's a major reason I am here helping people like you in this industry. Your fear, insecurities, and imposter syndrome tell you that you can't do it. But, look at the facts. Take advice from the people that HAVE done it and trust the process. I am giving you permission to be courageous in a position you've never been in before. If you don't believe in yourself, you won't start your journey to seven figure wealth.
You don't have a nose for smoke because you've never even smelled fire before. You've been playing it small, and falling victim to these limitations. The most important thing is to absorb knowledge from the people that have mastered the fire. They know how to extinguish problems before they have even arrived. They know how to walk through the barriers that are holding you back because they've already done it.
You are not incapable of success; you're missing the tools you need to get there. Success is a process of reframing and unlearning. What have you told yourself about your career? How far has that gotten you?
Tip #2: Become an innovator and stop being a follower.
You have to create a new culture within yourself. If your idea of success is comparing yourself to other agents, or your top competitor. That's not good enough! You have to take chances and learn responsible risk. It might feel easier to stay on the sidelines and coast by. But you know you’re better than that. It's not fulfilling, right? Start walking in the footsteps of people that have mastered the results you want. Challenge yourself to reimagine success strategies, reimagine sales strategies and be an innovator.
You will never set yourself apart from people until you raise the bar. Start learning and start believing that it's possible because it is. Don't stay inside of something that is familiar, routine, or status quo. Scaling your business starts with challenging yourself. Changes aren't going to happen if you don't make them. I encourage you to transcend what's traditional.
Tip #3: It takes time to develop mastery, but you have resources to help you get there.
In the world of business, it's easy to work harder and still not get the results you want. Why? Because you don't know how to work smarter. You are not going to become a master overnight. It takes time to grow your expertise, and step into your confidence. So, you're not closing as many deals as you'd like, or your outreach isn't high enough to scale your business. Failure is important because it is a gateway to changing your belief systems.
To become a master at your craft, what do you have to do? Get off your high horse that you have already learned everything there is to know. Learn from the masters and start thinking like them. If you are thinking that you already have all the knowledge you need to grow, you're wrong. You don't have to spend 40 years mastering your craft to gain success. That's why you turn to the people, the information, the resources that have already done it.
Increasing your income in the financial services industry is not always a steady upward momentum. But you have to hop on the rollercoaster, go through the ups and downs, and make changes to get to your end goal. Start thinking like your mentors, and stop falling into the lies that it takes x, y, or z amount of time to reach success. You are only going to get there if you tap into your resources, and shift your mindset. This is how you take a job and build it into a career.
Tip #4: Get the lesson from failure, and move forward.
It's impossible to build your career without having moments of failure. I like to think of failure as moments where your end result didn't reach your expectations. This creates strong accountability, to set standards for ourselves and stop settling. Oh, it's not working, let me try something else, let me transition how I am thinking about my process. Failure creates resilience, and it separates the amateurs from the masters. So, how do you handle failure?
If you reached a dead end and thought it’s time to change course, that's most likely why you're here. Look back on when things haven't gone as planned. Did it send you spiraling? Or did you look for the positive lesson? If you get the lesson, you get to move on. You pass the class and move forward with momentum. If you don't get the lesson it's going to keep showing up wearing a different pair of pants. Whatever you resist, persists. So, think about your process and your failures for a moment.
Once we shift how we view failure, true success comes. This is because we don't keep doing the same things over and over expecting different results. You take control over the things you tell yourself are uncontrollable. Change comes with action, absorbing knowledge, and trying something new. Don't let discouragement or mistakes keep you from moving forward in your career.
Tip #5: Create value in what you do.
Are you showing up only to deliver mediocre results, or do you have the drive to build a career legacy? If you go to work and feel unmotivated, and undervalued it's time to reshape how you think. Start appreciating the responsibility and the consequences of what you do. If you strategically view your job on a detailed level, you are going to deliver the results you want. Start thinking big. Create substance that makes you want to work hard for yourself and your clients.
Does this mean you are going to enjoy every second of it? No, of course not. But you want to create intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Extrinsic goals may be making more money and growing your business. What are your internal goals for success? When you create these levels of motivation, it gives you purpose. Purpose to go to work, and push the boundaries of what you accomplished the day before. Think about upward momentum, and not just your end goal.
Tip #6: Visualize your success strategies daily.
When we lose touch with what we want, it's because we aren't putting it in the forefront of our minds. Building a sales career is about endurance. I'm sure you've thought about how it would feel to close those deals and scale your income to over seven figures? So, you think about it, and you move on and nothing changes.
You need to emotionally charge yourself up for your goals on a daily basis. Here's a simple technique, when you wake up in the morning before you even get out of bed. Visualize yourself striving for your goals. Struggling for your goals, and then attaining your goals. So, what do you do to maintain when the struggle happens?
These techniques create endurance. You’re lying to yourself if you think it's always going to be easy. But if you are serious about your career success, you need to visualize it daily. The same way you would train your body, this strategy trains your mind.
Tip #7: Stop making excuses for why you aren't where you want to be.
Excuses are comfortable. In life, you can have an excuse, or you can have an obstacle. An obstacle is an opportunity to learn and to grow. Stop settling for "Oh, it's a slow month" or "My leads are bad." I want you to observe the thoughts that you have. What is the difference between an excuse and an obstacle?
You will not reach “Seven Figure Wealth” if you keep holding yourself back. The world teaches us excuses are normal. It's easy to attach a label, and then it becomes your comfort food. Stop turning to the voice that says, I am the victim and I can't make more money, or I can't achieve seven figure wealth. I want you to take accountability and say, this is my obstacle. What can I do to get through this?
I have been in this industry for a long time, and I've seen the difference between those that make it and those that don't. I want you to stop limiting yourself, and start winning.
Start implementing these tips into your business strategies. Your mindset is the foundation to excelling in your field. I offer many resources to help you grow your career, and I encourage you to use them to your advantage.
Set yourself apart from the settlers, and take control of your career.
