Hello from the Coaching Team
Dear Students,

Most of you have probably taken the opportunity to meet many ambitious and inspiring people at the EBS Symposium. However, ambition can often be held back by Limiting Beliefs, i.e. beliefs that constrain us in one way or another. In this month's newsletter we will take a look at how to identify limiting beliefs and deal with them.

In our Video of the Month, Brian Tracy shares a few of his strategies on overcoming the practice of limited thinking. In our Article of the Month, we will look at eight self-limiting behaviors to avoid, gathered by an experienced executive coach, Kathy Caprino.

We also have a new coach to present to you: Dr. Andrea Rösinger. As an experienced leader, having previously been Senior Vice President at SAP and currently being Managing Partner at CompAllianz, she would be happy to coach you.

Great education and a broad network are very important. However, coaching can easily multiply their effect when it comes to achieving your goals. Visit the coaching area on MyEBS to select a coach and book an appointment, or contact us. We’ll be happy to hear from you!

Warm regards,
Your Coaching Team

The 8 Self-Limiting Behaviors To Avoid
Picture could not be loaded
Throughout her work experience, Kathy Caprino had many opportunities to meet and learn from successful professionals and entrepreneurs. And by "success" she means "achieving what matters most to you, individually and authentically" rather than some outsider perspective that mostly only considers someone's wealth and social standing. Being able to observe these people in action, Kathy has taken careful notice of the way they think, react, solve problems, and lead. These observations have later made their way into Kathy's own life as well as the lives of those she coaches.

One of the things she's noted was that successful people who love what they do for a living, not only display "life-supporting" behaviors, but at the same time avoid "certain negative actions and mindsets" that in turn are rather typical for their less successful counterparts.

1. Engaging in “below the line” thinking

Below the line thinking is a "particular mindset that shapes how you view the world in a limiting way." In essence, it is a perpetual belief that you are not in control of what's happening to you, which forces you to be on the constant lookout for someone or something to blame - current politics, your coworkers, your significant other, the weather etc. Below the line thinking makes you feel like the current situation that you find yourself in is "not fair" and that you are not prepared to face unexpected challenges. Above the line thinking, on the contrary, means that you are aware of the obstacles ahead, and instead of being afraid of failure, you are ready to address them, learn something valuable throughout the process and come out a winner one way or another.

2. Mistaking wishful thinking for action

Successful people set goals that are possible, logical outcomes of their current activities. Unsuccessful people prefer to fantasize about not-so-realistic results as a way to temporarily free themselves from the pressure of their current situation. If you wish to become successful at something, it's important to support your goals with bold actions. It's perfectly fine to aim for the stars, but even the most successful people break their huge goals down into smaller steps that build up towards the end goal.

3. Remaining powerless and speechless

Successful individuals are not afraid to use and express their power. They are strong advocates for themselves and what they care about, who do not hesitate to emphasize their evident superiority to the competition. They know their worth and just how much unique contribution they bring to their industry. Furthermore they are honest and open about their problems, ready and eager to face any challenge as soon as it surfaces on their path, while retaining their calm and collected demeanor.
  4. Putting off investing in oneself

Kathy admits that she keeps seeing this behavior in those that perceive themselves as unsuccessful - stubborn reluctance to invest money, energy and time in themselves and their personal development. Successful people don't hesitate to invest in their personal growth because they are confident that, in the end, it will benefit not only themselves, but also those around them.

5. Resisting change

Successful people prefer to go with the flow rather than drowning in the changing tides. They don't resist the trends, they embrace them. It's important to stay flexible and improvise. Unsuccessful people, on the other hand, tend to cling to the past and their initial expectations, rejecting any kind of change and constantly complaining how "life is not what it should be."

6. Honoring other people’s priorities over their own

Successful people have very clearly defined priorities, values, mission and purpose. They aren't lost in a sea of possibilities, they know exactly where they're headed and take bold actions towards their dreams. They won't stray away from their course because of someone else's priorities and values and won't hesitate to say "no" to endeavors that could potentially push them off their track. This doesn't mean that you have to be selfish to become successful. It only means that you should know exactly how you want to use your talents and commit to your visions becoming reality.

7. Doubting oneself and one's instincts

It's hardly a surprise that people who doubt themselves often find themselves far from achieving their goals. Successful individuals have firm belief in themselves. While being absolutely capable of acknowledging their possible flaws, they are able to forgive themselves for their eventual mistakes or lack of certain knowledge, and simply accept themselves the way they are. They just hold on to their optimism and keep on going, thinking of every mistake as a valuable lesson.

8. Searching for handouts and easy answers

According to Kathy, from the very first contact she has with someone, she's often able to tell if they'll be likely to succeed in their new endeavor or not, just by analyzing the nature of their expectations and their plans on how to fulfill them. She provides an example of a complete stranger reaching out to her, expecting free help without considering what they may offer in return. This stranger might ask something like, “I’m launching my new business and wondered if you can give me some advice. I can’t pay you because I’m a startup, but I hope you can help me anyway.” Successful people are "respectful, resourceful, curious, competent, tenacious" and creative enough to find a way to get the assistance they require without resorting to asking for handouts.

A successful individual is aware of their success depending on the effort they put in. They understand and accept the fact that they aren't likely to find any easy answers on the way to their goal.
