MEASURING SUCCESS BY OLD STANDARDS

Stephanie Vozza, again at Fast Company.com, points out —

Another mindset you may have adopted during the pandemic is buying into limiting beliefs that may be holding you back, says Kindra Hall, author of Choose Your Story, Change Your Life: Silence Your Inner Critic and Rewrite Your Life from the Inside Out.

“It’s those statements like, ‘Oh, I just can’t do this, or ‘What’s the point?’” she says. “It’s stories that are reeling around in the background that keep us from taking action.”

Limiting beliefs may be due to past measures of success. “I was struggling with my own idea of success, and I was telling myself, ‘I can’t achieve it. I can’t succeed,’” says Hall. “When I started catching that belief running subtly in the background, I analyzed it and realized that in 2019, I measured my success in airline miles, hotel night stays, and time zone fatigue. Suddenly that was gone, and my inner voice was saying that I can’t be successful because it’s done the math and I wasn’t flying all over the place.”

Instead, Hall suggests redefining what success looks. For her, a better measure became doing virtual keynotes from her bedroom and then going out and building Legos with her kids. “I had to work to change that programming and replace the negative stories with ones that were relevant going forward,” she says.

— In that last book of the Bible, St. John heard this: “Behold, I’m making all things new.”

Doesn’t that include you?

Apply as needed, and let’s meet back here tomorrow.
