Is not thinking you have a limiting belief, a limiting belief?
Andy Jenkins did another one of his WHOA POSTS about limiting beliefs.
Here is my comment, plus a little more about how I handle limiting beliefs.
You’re correct that if we just want money (freedom and time) we can just be a business man and bang out stuff based on emulating a successful model.
That is true!
But that’s very like a JOB where you just happen to own the company.
Obviously I am messed up here, and I cant; want money enough or something.
Because I know it is true that I could earn money just by banging out a business.
But in another part of your article you mention
“Today, I will do what I am passionate about doing”
This is where the LB comes in.
How do you do what you are passionate about, if it isn’t about banging out a known business model ?
When it feels like a JOB, it usually isn’t fun.
So I think this is where the road block for most is.
When you start out, you can’t afford or trust to employ staff or outsource everything that NEEDS to just be done, in order for F to happen.
So I feel we all distract ourselves with stuff that is fun – tinkering and learning.
I’m not sure of this is just a LB that we need to unique to have fun, I’m sure it is a LB that things need to be to a level we are unsure of, even though we see it work elsewhere. Emulating what we mock seems untrue to our selves.
The takeaway for me is two fold.
1) Lots of boring JOB stuff needs to be done. Just suck it up until you can afford to outsource it. (it’s hard to believe there are ANY unemployed isn’t it with so much need for outsourcing!)
2) Personally I’m just throwing out the bath water. I’m simplifying my business (with automation) to the extent that all I need to do is the FUN stuff.
By accepting 1 and doing 2, my LB are not applicable, because I don’t need to emulate a successful model I do not believe in.
I could go on, and I guess I will, but perhaps in another post.
I’d like to leave you with a question though…
Why do we think jobs are a bad idea?
Jobs are simply the things we need to do, in order for the fun stuff to happen.
It doesn’t seem to matter if you work for yourself, or someone else in this regards.
The other thing is why can’t jobs be fun? Or at least why can’t we find the fun in them, or make them fun.
Also if so many people want to “belong” and be a part of something, and make a difference and be noticed. And if a common goal in society is to be social, why would we choose to work alone, instead of in a work place?
Whether that workplace is one we own, or one where we happen to go to.
I have no answers currently,I’m just throwing these limiting belief ideas and questions out there.
Sometimes it just seems like the biggest limiting belief is belief itself.
And freedom, and time and money, to do what?
To hang out with people while you work on a project or two?
Sounds like a job in a workplace you just happen to own to me
