We all have them – those nagging thoughts that creep up when we want to pursue a new career or other personal goals. Preconceived notions hold you back from being the best you possible. They stop you from stepping out and taking needed risks. Your growth should not hinge on faulty views of yourself and your abilities. Instead, grasp the reality that you can attain any goal when you let go of your preconceived notions.
4 Preconceived Notions that Are Holding You Back
When you decide to grow personally or professionally, you may immediately stop as doubt moves in. This often comes because you have preconceived notions that you will not be successful. Once you realize that these ideas are holding you back, you have everything you need to start your success journey:
* Lack of Experience: How often have to let an opportunity pass you up because you didn’t feel like you had 100% of the requirements? How else will you gain experience if you don’t try? The willingness to learn is the best skill you can have to thwart any lack of experience. Go ahead and apply for the new position or take the leap into a new adventure.
* Lack of Education: It all starts with comparing ourselves to others. You may look at a co-worker who seems lightyears ahead of you in the intelligence arena, but in reality, they are not. You might let your background affect your confidence and tell yourself that you don’t have the right degree. Many times, digging in and trudging through the trenches gives you more education than a college degree.
* Wrong Time: You are looking for the perfect time to start your blog or take up skydiving. You calculate and plan, but you never execute. Remember, the best time to start anything is now because time will keep moving even if you are standing still. Do you want to look back a year from now and see that you have not made any progress?
* Too Much Knowledge: If you believe you have reached the pinnacle of what you can learn, consider revisiting that idea. Knowledge is power. It can also keep you from growing as a person. Instead, look for new adventures that take you out of your comfort zone. You may find you still have lots to learn.
Embrace the path of continued growth when you ditch your preconceived notions.
