Overcome These 4 Limiting Beliefs To Create A Business That Feels Good

When I started my journey of soul-preneurship I had a laundry list of limiting beliefs that were keeping me stagnate and fearful of “success”. The truth was that my personal version of success and what I believed success to actually be really was completely different from one another. But that was just the start.

The journey of having your own business might not always feel or be easy, but I can say with my own experience and the experience of also helping other creatives and soul-preneurs overcome their own limiting beliefs, that there are ALWAYS new opportunities to bring more ease to the forefront of your work. Things get to feel natural and good and expansive. You get to say goodbye to the old hustle and perfectionism mentality that otherwise would keep you working hard and out of alignment for no other reason than that you’ve once been told that that is the only way to be successful.

I want to unpack these most common limiting beliefs that may be also stopping you from feeling so incredibly good in your work or business.

Limiting Belief 1 – HARD WORK IS THE ONLY WAY TO FIND SUCCESS

I had learnt that in order to be successful I had to work really really hard. And although I wanted to design a business where I could honour the ebbs and flows of my energy and have room in my life for things other than work, there were old stories living deep in my subconscious that were telling me otherwise and invited my perfectionist and hard working nature to rear it’s annoying head. But the truth is you get to use your superpowers and you design a simple yet impactful business without all of the hustle. You get make up all of the rules when it comes to putting yourself out there and sharing how and when people get to work with you. You get take time off. You get to work more or less depending on the day, the week, or the season. You get to make time for rest, exploration, and living. You get to make up even more of your own rules when it comes to how you show up energetically and how often.

Limiting Belief 2 – I HAVE TO MARKET MYSELF ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO GET CLIENTS

Some people have the unwavering ability to put themselves out there, create content that engages, and be a constant stream of inspiration directly through social media. I remember the amount of time I was spending trying to put the most simple posts together on Instagram and realizing that this activity was only taking time and energy away from me showing up to connect with potential and current clients. For awhile I believed that I would have to get over this fear of showing up on Instagram stories or reels and until then I just wouldn’t be able to attract my soulmate clients and really get my business off the ground. False. There are so many ways we can connect to our soulmate clients and share our messaging of what we’re here to help with, like:

  • Sharing wisdom on podcasts, radio shows, blogs, or in communities
  • Attending or running online workshops, seminars, or events
  • Receiving referrals from our past or current clients
  • Setting up partnerships or collaborations with other solopreneurs or businesses

And guess what! Now I have a greater presence on social media BUT instead of figuring this all out on my own and spending countless hours scheduling and working on SEO I have hired a magical marketing wizard of a human that does this for me!!!! Just because you don’t want to show up on social media doesn’t mean that you have to be the one to do it all. The power in engaging people with superpowers that are different from your own allows you to be brought to even greater heights, and allows you to stay in your zone of creations while they send your wisdom out into the world, even to the corners of social media that you once resisted so greatly. I feel excited now to know that I can reach you here without having to figure out all of the logistics of that!

Limiting Belief 3 – I WILL FAIL IF I DON’T DO THINGS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE

There can be a lot of pressure in the business world to keep innovating, showing up, and doing all of the right things. How many people have you seen selling their blueprint to success, only to try it out and it feel totally off and not produce the same results that they experienced? Same. I had to realize that I get to instead engage with amazing communities, coaches, experts, and mentors to receive their guidance but ultimately have my own space to try things out. Really when it comes down to it, we often are waiting for permission from others to take action in certain ways we think we should, but realizing that we get to do things our own way and create and share from a place of authenticity, this is where we will experience success on our own terms.

Limiting Belief 4 – PEOPLE WILL ONLY SEE MY VALUE IF I GIVE THEM ALL OF THE THINGS

When I started doing Discovery and Connection Calls I was dishing out my wisdom like it was a bottomless brunch. I was exerting so much energy, sharing all of the insights I was processing as we spoke, and in just 30-45 minutes I was giving them an overload of information which I expect was very overwhelming. Imagine the irony in this as the purpose of my work at the time was to really help solopreneurs and creative business owners cut through the noise and focus on the things that will bring more ease and simplicity to their work. And guess what!!!… they weren’t signing up to work with me either. I had to realize that value is offered in how you do something differently than anybody else… it is quality over quantity and showing up uniquely as yourself with a new perspective to how your clients can also uniquely find flow in their work and lives.
