Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”
Science backs this up as research demonstrates you work to create what you believe is true – what you believe is possible even if you don’t realize you’re doing it.
The more formal term is “confirmation bias” which is defined as, “the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one’s existing beliefs or theories.”
You take in data to support your perspective and screen out what doesn’t. ((Isn’t that fascinating?!?))
This means you cause what you believe to happen thus reinforcing what you believe.
Unless you expand your viewpoint, the landscape will always look the same.
This is why every year I seek out new mentors, hire coaches, and expand my team as they help me to expand my own awareness.
While I’ve worked with some of the same people for over 10 years as they continue to evolve as I do still providing immense value to me on my journey, sometimes what I can’t solve is simply a way of thinking that I need to outgrow in order for my business (and me) to grow.
This up-leveling allows for solutions to become more conceivable and possible because unless you address what you believe, you get the same results.
When I started my business, I didn’t realize how my belief that we live in a dangerous world affected me and thus the clients that were attracted to my work.
While there are a number of reasons why this belief showed up in my life, I confirmed it over and over again.
When I shifted this and began to believe that the world is a safe place, and everything and everyone conspires for my greatest good, guess what happened?!?
Everything and everyone started to conspire for my greatest good!
Over the past 15 years of running Upside Thinking, Inc., I’ve been seeking ways to uncover my own fear-based consciousness and see the humanity, pain, and hurt in each person while also seeing their brilliance.
This has allowed for co-creation with coaching clients who have built real solutions to make the world a better place for all.
By showing up in a way that is mutually supportive, you create a world where everyone wins.
I get to experience this every day with clients.
The community of Upside Thinkers and Destiny Designers have an evolved viewpoint that has changed the landscape of their world.
This deeper shift starts with you.
Your courageous leadership.
It’s essential that you spend time with people who can help you expand your vision, to see beyond your current limits – and make tangible, practical and profitable changes.
That’s what I love about Design Your Destiny Live.
It’s a group of trailblazers that can light up the world gathering together in one room.
Are you one of them? Do you want to be?
If so, please come.
It would be great to see you there, adding your light and expanding your vision.
At the event I provide practical information and tools with transformational practices that my friend and world class leadership trainer Anita Sanchez would say is, “good medicine for your body, mind, and soul”.
The Upside Challenge of the week is to take initiative to grow your beliefs this week. Sign up for an event, experience, or opportunity that has the potential to expand your vision and perspective. Your body, mind, soul, and business will thank you for it!
The word needs you and your brilliance.
