The power of thinking big and overcoming limiting beliefs
In today’s society, and especially as women, we are often led to believe in a lot of myths; that we can’t do certain things, that it’s a man’s world, that we should strive for one step up the ladder and see how we go, that we can’t expect to be CEO as very few women are - but I would like to talk about how limiting our beliefs like this can set us back from achieving our true potential. We are often guilty of giving ourselves excuses for not going for something; I’m too old, I’m too young, I have no experience, I don’t have the education - when in reality speaking to yourself in this manner and adopting this ‘limiting mindset’ only sets you up for dissatisfaction and disappointment. I would like to discuss how rather than focusing on the next step up in your career, (one step up syndrome), we should be focusing on thinking bigger than that, as the number of people who do is so small that the competition up there is actually much smaller than you might imagine.
