Limiting BEARliefs can destroy great business ideas before they even get started.
I was talking to a friend of mine from New Zealand today a bit about Social Media and his business.
No, he’s not a hobbit. Everyone from New Zealand isn’t a hobbit.
He’s doing a great job building a business but was slightly confused about what to do on Social Media. This is pretty normal because let’s face it – social media isn’t easy. It is complicated, ever changing, and something that worked yesterday may be useless today.
I really enjoyed the chat and the main thing I wanted him to walk away with was the concept of not buying into his own limiting BEARliefs.
Guess what – if we believe that we won’t be successful – we probably won’t be successful.
If we believe that we can be successful – then at least we have a shot.
Don’t get me wrong. That doesn’t guarantee that we will be a success. Heck, we might even fail hard but guess what – it will be a failure that we can own. We will have at least tried. Where as if we buy into our limiting BEARliefs – we won’t even try. We’ll just sit on the coach until we can’t pay rent and have to sell the couch.
Being a business owner isn’t easy. It has its ups and downs. That’s life. Don’t add limiting BEARliefs to your list of troubles.
What are some of your limiting BEARliefs? Put them in the comments because I’m curious.
I think I’ll have to include this in one of the chapter’s of my book – Social Media Doesn’t Have to Suck!
