Episode 42 Highlights:
What are some examples of limiting beliefs – “Is that you have to work hard for money. That’s a really big limiting belief that a lot of first gen women experience, ” Wendy shared. Our parents came from other places, experienced hard work, and we grew up believing that’s the only way to earn money. The belief is that you have to get “a job” that is going to require you to work long hours in order to bring in money, and you don’t really have to live that way.
Why is it so important to change your mindset? Why is it so important that you believe – “It starts with our conditioning. It’s because we’ve been conditioned for so long to do things in a certain way. There are brain neuron connection patterns that strengthen around our beliefs.” Wendy shared.
Why is so hard to change your mindset- The years of conditioning that we’ve been raised with have a lot to do with your mindset. Strengthening of those brain neuron connections through years of thinking, a certain thought of believing a certain belief that we’ve just been taught to believe and not only taught, socialized, everyone around us is believing that thought. Your awareness of what are the thoughts that I’m spending the majority of my time thinking? What are the beliefs that are really ingrained in me that are limiting me from moving forward? These are examples of the questions Wendy proposed during this interview.
Thank you, Wendy, for coaching our brain to believe more in the possibilities and let go of the conditioning to always work hard for money.
