In a recent workshop I presented exploring the Upper Limit Problems that can sabotage our success, the question was asked, “Isn’t looking for the negative counterintuitive to the Law of Attraction’s focus on the positive for manifesting what we want?”
What a great question! Larry, when I heard that, it reminded me of
something I said to my doctor about tests and procedures designed to
catch issues early. I said, “Why go looking for trouble?” Of course, my
cynical attitude toward the allopathic practices was rearing its head in
the conversation, but it’s not a bad comparison to the search for Upper
Limit Problems that might hold us back from our potential for success.
The Upper Limit Problems are behaviors that we create after we
experience a higher level of success than we have given ourselves
permission for. Doesn’t that sound crazy? But it’s true: we have an
internal thermostat for how much success we allow ourselves to
experience. Much of this Limiting Thinking is formed in our early
childhood, amazingly. It could be one simple thing that we heard someone
say. It could be someone’s behavior or example that influenced us.
Is it negative to look for this limiting thinking?
Let’s look at it from another angle: if we don’t know what thinking is
controlling us, how are we going to change our behavior? Without
awareness, what hope do we have of creating a new way of thinking – a
Larry, awareness is the first step to positive change. And sometimes we
need help to become aware. Give me a call when you are ready to go to a
level of success that you’ve been dreaming of.
