Do your Beliefs Support or Hinder your Success?

I was invited to join the Business Women Panel in Venus Magazine, where the spotlight is on how your beliefs can shape your business and career

I was honoured and excited to be asked to be on the Business Women Panel in the Venus Magazine – a magazine for New Zealand women in business.  The focus of this issue is beliefs and how they can impact your business and career.


I have worked with several business women who felt they were limiting or self sabotaging their success – helping them to uncover these beliefs and replacing them with ones that supported them to achieve their goals.  Here’s my interview about beliefs for the Business Women Panel:

Have you consciously examined your own beliefs as part of your development as a business woman?

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I recognise the benefits of aligning conscious thought and unconscious behaviours with my goals.  Beliefs are held at a subconscious level so hypnosis helps me identify and transform beliefs that can limit my success, and gives me the confidence in my ability to make a real difference in my clients’ lives.

Do you believe it is valuable for every businesswoman to become aware of her own beliefs and self-talk around her business?

Absolutely! We unconsciously act in accordance with what we believe, so our beliefs determine our behaviours and success.  If you’re not aware of your beliefs and self-talk, how do you know if they’re supporting, limiting, or self-sabotaging your progress?

In your role, what kind of beliefs have you noticed hold women back in business?

A fear of public speaking or presenting to groups is a common belief which often results in missed business opportunities.  Undervalued self-worth is also common, by changing these beliefs business women become comfortable charging fees that represent their true value and begin attracting clients willing to pay this.

In your role, what kind of beliefs have you noticed serve women well in business?

Self belief!  To quote Henry Ford “If you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.”  Imagine what you could achieve when you believe at your deepest levels that you are a capable, confident and successful businesswoman!
