Those are two REALLY big questions for a Sunday morning as I sit here with my coffee contemplating what’s ahead in the next few months.

Although I’m still on vacation for most of this week, I’m thinking about:

  • Upcoming August celebrations and events
  • Whether to launch an event in September
  • Our family trip to Colombia in November
  • Whether my daughter’s non-wedding wedding dress could be my mother’s wedding dress altered
  • What am I tolerating in my business
  • Where am I playing small in my business

All of these questions could have very different answers IF I let my thinking of the past dictate the answers to my future!

You see…. I’m nobody special. I’m not a guru. I’m just like you!

I could let my thinking that:

  • I’m not knowledgeable enough to launch an event in September.
  • I’ve never been to Colombia so it’s going to be stressful.
  • How could I possibly think my mother’s dress is something my daughter would even want.
  • I don’t deserve to be that successful in my business.

But all of those things…all of that thinking…is just mindset! And a limiting mindset at that!

Truth be told…I used to think exactly like that!

I used to think small.

I used to think I needed more education; I used to think I had to do what everyone else in my industry does; I used to think I didn’t deserve to be well-paid; I used to think I couldn’t charge high ticket…

Notice the words I wrote… “I used to think…”

Limiting beliefs and mindset are something that I’ve worked on for many years and continue to up level.

Mindset isn’t a one-and-done!  It’s a journey!

And up levelling our beliefs is something that all successful business owners do continuously.

That’s why I hope you enjoy this week’s episode #98 of the Work Less PROFIT More podcast with special guest Alfonso Cuadra (here)!  Although raised in poverty by a single mother, Alfonso is now a sought-after real estate investing guru and millionaire – he is proof that your past doesn’t determine your future!
