2.

3.

4.

5.

The biggest negative belief that I need to overcome, in order to be more effective is:


______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Three patterns that rob me of my belief:


____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


My action plan starting tomorrow to deal with that negative belief is:


Walk yourself through this exercise and you might find some things holding you back that you weren’t aware of. Good luck!
