Overcome Limiting Beliefs

“I don’t have enough time”

“I don’t have the expertise”

“I’m not qualified”

“It’ll fail”

Sound familiar?

I too have many limiting beliefs that have been holding me back:

OLD BELIEF 1:

I don’t have time to exercise — I’m too busy… when I finish work, I’m mentally exhausted, and just want to get to my family.

New beliefs:

  • My workout is the most important business meeting.
  • My health is my most important asset.
  • Dedicating 60–90 mins in the morning adds energy (energy out = energy in)
  • Combining movement with new learning works wonders, saves time, powers the rest of my day, generates ideas, and helps me get closer to my goals. While walking or jogging, I can also listen to a podcast or audiobook, take an online course, watch a movie or stand-up comedy show, or even meditate and do breathing exercises.

OLD BELIEF 2:

I need to workout every day, no matter what.

New beliefs:

  • If I’m not improving each day, walking / jogging faster, longer, or further, then I should be resting.
  • I need to listen to my body.

OLD BELIEF 3:

Who am I to become an Entrepreneur?

New beliefs:

  • I already have a lot of transferable knowledge & skills.
  • “Who, not how”; I don’t need to do everything alone. I can team up with experienced entrepreneurs and subject matter experts. They can teach me what I need to know, but help me using their skillset and resources.

My mission is to help Entrepreneurs create a healthier, happier world. Often, this starts at home. You may have no prior medical education or training, but you’ll have lived through a personal experience, either with your health, or with caring for a loved one. This may be pushing you to want to apply your entrepreneurial energy to deliver solutions to the problems you’ve seen and felt.

I’m here to empower you to turn your passion into products and services that truly add value, while helping you avoid and overcome the challenges you’ll face, like gaining investment and adoption, or access to data, people, and resources.

My favourite episode so far was on Day 38, where I was coached live by a former Silicon Valley Entrepreneur & Googler, turned coach and future doctor. I wanted to see how I can turn my experience with burnout into my ambition to support Entrepreneurs:
