What are foundational beliefs?
They are BELIEFS that make up who we are as human-beings, because what you have to realize is that BELIEFS are what drive us forward or hold us back. We can draw so many conclusions from our belief systems – simply, we can leave a voice mail for a client and they do not return the call – our belief around the situation might be that the client is not interested or does not want to talk with us!
Yet, until you clarify and verify the belief, it is just a belief! That you consider to be right! In fact, you may even defend the belief not even knowing the truth… we sure are complicated beings!
Many people are busy and often forget to call back, maybe somebody takes the message and does not give it to them or possibly technology fails (yes, it does sometimes) and they just don’t get the message – how do you know the truth? When you finally connect and ask, which is verifying and clarifying your belief.
Are your beliefs holding you back in your business? Hopefully, that will get you thinking about all areas of your business and how your beliefs could be impacting your profitability and growth.
Now lets bring in the next level of understanding of beliefs. You cannot think success and feel failure! You have to have the feelings in your body in line with your thoughts. This is why some people never get what they want, because they are thinking positive and wanting huge success, yet deep down their foundational beliefs never believe it will happen or that once they obtain success they will become an ugly person or arrogant or even lose everything.
You have to have your feelings in line with your thoughts to maximize results!
This is in every area of your life… not just in business.
You cannot feel broke and think rich… sadly, you will always be broke!
Bottom line is… you have to change your programming to change your feelings to change your thoughts to achieve massive abundance in all areas of your LIFE!
