Speaker 1:

Hello everyone. This is Kavita with aligned and soulful Success, and today I want to talk in detail about how your beliefs impact your success. So you may have heard all the talk about being positive, that you need to tell yourself good things, positive things, maybe affirmations on a regular basis so that you can create the life that you want, right? And so I'm not here to dismiss that. I wanna take that a little further, okay? Because yes, it's important to be positive, and it's important to notice when you are not being positive. When you see something externally and it impacts you, and you start to maybe overthink about it, you can't stop thinking about it. You're trying to dismiss it. Um, you're trying to let it go by telling yourself positive affirmations and it's not working, okay? So that is when you are going to be clear, when it's clear to you that these are actually your beliefs, okay? There's something in your subconscious mind, there's something there that is impacting what you are seeing and why you are being kind of triggered by something out outside of you. And so, when I say how, when I ask the question, how do your beliefs impact your success? In this case, these beliefs, these subconscious beliefs are impacting your success more than you realize. Okay? So how do you know what your beliefs are? Well, if I asked you that question, you would probably start by saying that you know, the, the things that you've been told growing up, you'd maybe, uh, tell about your own experience running your business. Maybe there are people you follow and that you've learned from. Maybe you've had mentors or business coaches that you've worked with, and maybe you've been, uh, around other entrepreneurs, or maybe you haven't. So all the things that you believe would be based on all of those experiences, right? And so then our brain takes those experiences, it processes them, and it creates memories. Okay? Now what about the fact that our brain then takes what's happening around us and processes it based on the past memories, but our past memories we often don't even remember accurately. Okay? So, okay, so then if I ask you what your beliefs are, you may not actually be sure, right? If those beliefs were based on actual evidence, okay? Because if you do not remember accurately, and that's how your beliefs are created, then what does that say? What does that say? That says to me at least, and I hope that's what you are seeing, is that your beliefs come from past experiences and, and actually just things you may have heard, right? And so those beliefs are then processed through your brain and not remembered correctly. Okay? So, so then you have the ability to create new beliefs based on what you want to truly happen, what you really want to experience in your life, right? And so how do you do that? You start with the results that you're getting outside of you, what you're seeing, right? Whatever you're seeing is actually the clearest evidence of what your beliefs are. Okay? So if you are seeing high levels of success, if you are really happy and satisfied with your business, if, um, everything's going well, then, then, you know, then those are your beliefs that you believe that businesses you can be successful as and business. But maybe then there's some other beliefs that if I reach a certain income level, then I would have to give up something, okay? There might be something you need to give up, or there's something that you would have to do that you don't want to do. Okay? So I'll give you an example. Um, a personal example. So growing up, I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs, and, um, one of the things that happened is that my parents had to sacrifice a lot. They were gone a lot. We didn't get to, to do a lot of things as family together because they would work a lot long hours, and especially during busy times, right? And as we know as entrepreneurs, there's n there's usually not like a steady schedule, right? There is, there are ebbs and floor flows in your schedule. There are times of the year that tend to be a little fuller, your schedule, and there are times of the year that are not as full, okay? And then so that in that case, when it came to my experience, it was that when my parents were making a lot of money and were successful, they actually had to sacrifice their personal life. Okay? Now, for years, I didn't realize that this underlying belief impacted how I showed up, right? So I had felt subconsciously had decided that if I was successful, that was e equal to having to give up personal life, right? And personal experiences and experiences with my family. And so experiences with my, my family and my personal life, it's really important to me, right? And so, in fact, that is the, one of the reasons that I chose this path, this entrepreneurial path, was so that I could be present for my family, right? So then obviously this is something that creates an internal conflict for me, right? There's this internal conflict of I wanna be there for my family, but subconsciously my brain has, has connected this success to not having a personal life, okay? So, seems really obvious as I explain it right now, but if I believe like, oh, I can be successful and I'm telling myself, and I'm giving myself positive affirmations, and I'm taking all the action steps, and I'm doing all the things right to, um, move forward, but I'm not seeing the success matching my efforts, right? Then that's when I started to really look at those internal beliefs and, you know, did some work with coaches and, you know, really went into those beliefs and brought them out, right? Brought them out in front so that I could really look at them and then move through that, move through those beliefs so that they don't impact me, uh, anymore because they were impacting me without me realizing it, right? Because if you had asked me actually what my beliefs were, I wouldn't, I wouldn't have said that. I would not have said that. I believed that you had to give up your personal life to be successful. In fact, I had evidence around me of people that were successful and didn't have to give up the personal life, right? And so there were people around me like that, but I didn't realize that those childhood, that childhood experience that I had, had really been the foundation of the belief of what you had to give up to be successful. Now, that was just one layer, right? And the insight of those, of the belief is one step towards working through that, right? And then there is the actual most important part of that, which is the emotion, right? And even as I'm telling you this right now, I can still feel like some remnants of that, that emotion in my body, right? And if you're empathic, you, you might be really in tune with those sensations in your body. And as you're in tune with that, it can feel more intense. A lot of empaths and and sensitive people feel the emotions really intensely. And we, we will do things to avoid feeling those emotions, right? So how it felt not to have a personal life, not to be able to do those things with my family, that kind of loss that I felt, right? And that I, I can still feel that a little in my body as I'm telling you the story. And so I know that can still impact how I show up in the world, right? It can impact how I show up in bad business, right? It, it'll impact the results without me even realizing it. Okay? And so bringing it forward and kind of knowing that the feeling is the way, right? So the insight's just part of it. The thoughts that the affirmations, it's just part of it. You really, really, in order to move past this conditioning, you really, you need to work through the emotional aspect of it and know that you're gonna be okay no matter what you're feeling, right? It's a feeling. Okay? And so what is it for you? I ask you when you, when you're looking at your own path, right? If you're, uh, if you are an, uh, empathic person or an empathic and empathic entrepreneur, and you're looking at your business and you're, you're maybe not receiving the results that you would like, it's time to look inward. It's time to see what are your really, truly, what do you really believe? And the way to do that is to see when you're feeling that, uh, emotion arise, okay? And then emotion allows you to get the insight, and then you work through the emotion. And of course, this is, uh, you know, I say this a lot, but I do believe a lot of these, these things, it's hard for us to see ourselves and to work with someone to help you do that is ideal. Okay? So, um, so looking at your beliefs that are obvious as just a start, when you really want to impact your beliefs and your results, you need to look at all the beliefs, the beliefs that you have from your subconscious mind and work through those. And so, one of the areas that I notice a lot and that I keep hearing over and over again from, um, empathic entrepreneurs is figuring out who they wanna serve, right? You EMBAs are such amazing individuals and much needed in the world, right? And so figuring out who we want to help and narrowing that down to kind of like what they call a niche or a niche, right? Depending on how you wanna pronounce, pronounce that word can be so hard because we want to help everybody. Okay? So I am going to, I am offering a free masterclass on Friday, March 10th.

I'll have a link for you to be able to register available in, um, the description of the bio here, and, um, would love for you to attend and to figure out how you can start to, to narrow that, that niche down so you can attract your dream clients, right?
