Many people are guilty of saying that they want to do something, but when the opportunity for it happens, they let other things get in the way of doing it. In this Expert Insight Interview, Fabienne Frederickson discusses powerful mind shifts that produce immediate results. Fabienne is a founder and owner of Boldheart, business growth coach, speaker, and author.
The interview discusses:
- Having clarity of what you want
- Aligning intention with beliefs
- Changing the mindset
Some things can help you to succeed in doing what you originally planned. The crucial thing to do is to have clarity on what you want to do. No matter what you want, you have to be clear about it because not being sure where you want to go usually brings you nowhere. Everything starts with clear intention and then focusing on it. The more ambitious you are, the more ideas you get, and the easier it is for you to get distracted. It is not about having the most activities but about finishing what you have started.
Moreover, surround yourself with people who will support you and hold you accountable. Being part of the accountability-based community helps you to achieve far more than you would if you were alone. That is because we tend to cuddle ourselves too much and often not to hold ourselves accountable.
The Alignment of Intention and Beliefs
Your self-image, thoughts, and beliefs have to be in total alignment with your intention. The discipline to do something you started does not come from willing, but from believing. Your habits and behaviors are the product of how you perceive the world and yourself. Many factors influence self-image and how we perceive the world. One of those factors is the authority that we listen to our whole lives. For instance, if your parents tell you from your early childhood that money doesn’t buy happiness, that is how you will perceive money your entire life.
Change the Mindset
To change your mindset, start with examining your beliefs. Examine what you think about money, relationships, success, and then identify what stands on your way to achieving that. You will figure out which beliefs you need to reframe, beat the fear, and embrace the mindset of focusing on positive things. Only then, your actions and behaviors will change too.
Reconstructing your beliefs means taking control of your own life. It also means being in control of the external factors you are letting into your life. Thus, let in only those that will fill you with positive energy. There is nothing more satisfying than being brave enough to create the life that you enjoy living.
