There are No Limits

There are no limits on reaching success only those in your own mind. This is sometimes referred to as the Glass Ceiling. But what creates that glass ceiling in our minds, preventing success, limiting us?

What is the glass ceiling?

From Wikipedia

  • A glass ceiling is a metaphor used to represent an invisible barrier that keeps a given demographic (typically applied to minorities) from rising beyond a certain level in a hierarchy.
  • The metaphor was first coined by feminists in reference to barriers in the careers of high-achieving women. In the US, the concept is sometimes extended to refer to obstacles hindering the advancement of minority women, as well as minority men. Minority women often find the most difficulty in “breaking the glass ceiling” because they lie at the intersection of two historically marginalized groups: women and people of color. East Asian and East Asian American news outlets have coined the term “bamboo ceiling” to refer to the obstacles that all East Asian Americans face in advancing their careers

Now the term is also used to refer to the limits we have in our own minds, referred to as limiting beliefs.

Where do they come from?

We listen and overhear comments and statements from a young age and many of these take root.

Ask yourself how much you CAN earn in a week, a month, a year.Box of cash There are No Limits

Do you find yourself holding back, not wanting to be greedy? Do you say, that’s too much?

First ask yourself, Why is it too much?

If you work hard it is not wrong to expect to be paid what you are worth. We do have a tendency though to set a limit, even if we are unaware of it until we ask ourselves the question.

What is too much? £1,000 a month, £2,000, £5,000, £10,000?

Which number did you balk at, if none go higher and keep going until you feel uncomfortable. Once you do, then you know the limit you have subconsciously placed upon yourself.

Okay, now try this. Take the number you became uncomfortable at, say £5,000 a month. Now double it and keep repeating it to yourself. Tell yourself ‘I can earn £10,000 a month’. The more you repeat it the less uncomfortable you will feel.

Does it feel okay now? Yes? Now double it again! Repeat the same procedure until you feel comfortable, until it no longer seems to be an outrageous amount. Now you have broken through that glass ceiling you didn’t know was there.

If you still feel uncomfortable or are keeping the sum low, then the chances are that you have a Limiting belief in that area.

What is a Limiting Belief?

There are No Limits 1

It is surprising how much we can hold ourselves back without even realising it. So much that we pick up from others becomes stuck in our subconscious and dictates our lives.

We are limited by much that we see and rules we are given every day but we know about those. It’s those that are hidden in our subconscious, created in the past, by parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers and more. Those who were part of our everyday lives who would perhaps say things in jest that we took seriously. Parents and other adults would make comments unaware a child is listening and could be affected.

Even now, as an adult we can take things on board that unknowingly bolster a previous limiting belief or form a new one.

Read about limiting beliefs in this post HERE!

And about Limiting Beliefs Here!

How can you tell?

Every time something comes up that you feel uncomfortable with, the chances are it’s a limiting belief. We have so many that we never ever know about. For so many people it stops them becoming successful as they subconsciously sabotage themselves unknowingly.

Have you tried to run a business in the past, perhaps got to a certain point and gave up just before you could have become successful? Signed up for training, got really excited knowing this could be it, that this time you could actually succeed, then for one reason or another, stopped, dropped out, gave up right before the end.

I bet the reasons seemed valid at the time. Took too much time up, didn’t get enough time with your family or friends. It was too hard. You weren’t clever enough, not good enough to make it, you don’t have what it takes.

Sound familiar?

Sometimes those we are closest too can put obstacles in the way because of their subconscious fears. Fears that we might change, outgrow them, leave them behind in some way. Often they don’t even understand they are doing it themselves. It comes down to their limiting beliefs.

 

The Good News.

good news is coming

The good news is that we can overcome this conditioning that set so many limits without us realising it. You can search the internet/google ‘Limiting Beliefs’ and come up with a wealth of information.

Everyone, it seems, has a solution. You just have to wade through it and find what works for you. Some say you can do this with affirmations but it seems unlikely if these are long held beliefs and probably there are many you have no idea are tucked away in there.

What you need is not to know necessarily what they are, though it helps, but to have something that will help get rid of them without it taking months or years. Some people go the therapy route which can take years,  others affirmations/reading books/watching every video they find, this can take many months and stretch into years too.

How do I know? I have been a seeker of knowledge for many years. I must admit though, it is much easier now with search engines at our fingertips making the knowledge more easily accessible.

  • “Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” — Tony Robbins *

What are the solutions?

questions and answers

There are many if you google how to remove limiting beliefs, you will discover a great variety of ways to do so.

I am a firm believer in using methods that feel right to me. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution because we are all very different.

I have personally used Ho’oponopono an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. It has been modernised, without losing the essence, to be more useful in the modern world.

You can read about it on my other website HERE.

However, you should do your own research and check what is available before deciding.

For those that haven’t ever quite managed to be successful and reading this post have realised this may be their problem, it’s an area worth exploring.

I know this is somewhat different than the usual affiliate marketing/ business start up/working from home type of post but I feel it is a subject that should be considered.

Perhaps you know of someone who tried and got close to success many times and inexplicably gave up or who sabotaged themselves many times. When you consider this happening to others and perhaps yourself it becomes a sensible step to explore the subject.

Just remember, There are No Limits, only those we impose on ourselves.

Just Over Broke

Gloomy future

The Future is YOURS.

Interesting idea, right? Is that possible?

Does yours  look Murky or Bright?

We are taught by teachers and parents that we learn, get a job, struggle for years to become independent, have our own place, continue the struggle until eventually it’s not so much of a struggle.

Shouldn’t we be taught that the world is there to explore and horizons there to be expanded. We should be saying, I can, not I can’t, or, I will have a go, I will try. Think outside the box, life is more exciting that way.

It’s time to push back the narrow walls defining your life and open it up to new experiences, a new way of working and living.

What does J.O.B mean?

I have often heard people say it means Just Over Broke! 

Hamster wheel

Is that really the best way to live? Do we really want to spend our whole lives on a treadmill just about keeping about keeping our heads above water financially? Never  quite having enough to live the life we want without going in to debt.

Maybe you are in debt, the wage never  being quite enough for basic expenses. Then you have newspapers, TV and social media online constantly telling you that life is about meals out, holidays and long weekends away. If you fall into the trap of believing it, you end up in debt that makes the struggle even harder.

It’s like a never ending treadmill or rather, more like a hamster wheel.

SO, why are you here?

Because you are tired of the never ending hamster wheel I suspect.

Is there really a better way? YES there is! Can you really earn enough to give up the job you are tired of. The one where no matter what you do, you are never appreciated. The one where the more you do the less you are thought of. The one that never pays enough so you are trapped in the endless barely surviving mode.

The Just Over Broke mode.

Now you are searching. Maybe just started or maybe you have been looking for a while.

If you have been looking for a while you will have seen the endless ‘systems’ talked about on video’s showing either a big house and sports car, or a beach scene with someone on a laptop.

They look tempting those offers. Many say you will start earning within a few days. So you start thinking that yes it’s a big outlay but you could make that back within a couple of weeks. Maybe you did do that and lost your money, hopefully you didn’t.

So what can you do?

There are choices.

Figure leaning on a question mark.

Making something to sell such as crafts.

For this you need to either set up shop on a big site, have your own website to sell from or some people sell direct from Facebook and or other Social Media.

I have done this for years.

It takes time to set up a shop with all the photos, writing the listings etc but once that’s done, if you are selling the same things you can copy the listings and adjust accordingly so that gets easier. You need time to advertise on social media to keep the orders flowing in. And it can take a few years to get established and selling well.

Many also do craft markets in their local area to increase sales. Pricing is very important to ensure you earn enough for time and materials used.

What else is there?

Selling products you buy in bulk to sell on via a shop on a big  or website as above. Many people do this and earn a decent wage once established. You do need to have space to store the stock though.

If you don’t have storage space then Dropshipping is another option. Finding a wholesaler with products you are happy to sell via a website. It helps to write blog posts about the products and many experienced dropshippers suggest buying and testing products first to ensure the quality. That of course is personal choice, plus if you aim to sell a large array of products, it could get expensive.

There are sites where you can do freelance writing. I haven’t ever done this but apparently it doesn’t pay that well or you would need to be doing it a while to get better paid I imagine.

There are jobs online doing research, paid surveys,  tutoring, product testing and more. If you google online jobs there are sites you can sign up to and find out more.

Then there is affiliate marketing which I also do.

Are you ready to stop being J.O.B?

This is a good time to be going into business online. More people than ever are working from home, whether for a company or for themselves.

crowd of people.

The current world population is 7.7 billion people.It’s fascinating to see the numbers changing. See HERE for the Live Numbers!

There were 4.39 billion internet users  in January 2019 and they are increasing constantly.

This was a 9 percent increase of  366 million since January 2018. I suspect it may be a bigger increase by January 2020.

There were 3.48 billion social media users in January 2019. The worldwide total had grown by 288 million, 9 percent again, since January 2018. Again, the figures continue to increase.

As you can see the expansion rates are phenomenal. Internet users are constantly increasing which means more customers.

There was an estimated 1.92 billion global digital buyers in 2019. I expect that figure has grown now we are in November 2019.  That’s a massive amount of potential customers that just keeps right on growing.

Which do I recommend?

At this point it depends what you want to do. Are you ready to build a business?

Whichever direction you decide to take for a business I would recommend  Wealthy Affiliate without hesitation.

Just for the training alone it’s worth it, especially the Premium membership. Without Premium, free version, you get training and learn to build a website and much more, 10 modules in all. Plus 2 websites hosted on the WA site.

With Premium you get 50 websites, 25 can be domain names, all hosting is in the price too. Site Support is 24/7. Community members come from all over the world so there are always many people to answer questions and chat to. The level of community support is phenomenal. The training is excellent and longer term members create new training for anyone who want’s to learn more about any given subject. There are so many advantages to going Premium.

I always advise that anyone considering this should sign up to the free version first. No credit oe debit card needed. Go in, have a look around and build that first website.

That is a definite thrill. I had never ventured into WordPress territory because it looked so complicated yet I managed it and was amazed how quickly I had a basic website up and running, ready to be improved the way I wanted it.

Ready to try it?

Free starter Mebership to Wealthy Affiliate.

If so go and sign up for the free version. If you love it or want to know more, there is usually the first month at half the monthly price.

Don’t jump into the full price monthly or yearly though as on Black Friday, 29th November 2019, Wealthy Affiliate is having it’s yearly offer of $299.00.

Once bought at this price you get to stay at that amount for as long as you are a member. Plus there are added bonuses gained with buying at that time. If you want to know more check it out HERE!

 

What do you think are you ready to give it a go, to take charge of your life and future? If so, I will see you in there.

Be quick if you want to take the leap as changes are afoot.
