Do you know what is currently hiding in your blind spots?
We all have them.
Blind spots of things that are there, but we can’t see them.
Just like the blind spots when you are driving in a car… You can be driving along, not even aware that there is a car right next to you, even though you look in your side mirrors.
The danger is that if you are not aware of what is in your blind spot, then it is likely that if you change lanes while driving you will crash into the car that is hiding in your blind spot.
This can also be true in business and life. There can be all sorts of things hiding in our blind spots that we are not seeing. Some are actually good things that we don’t see, like seeing how much progress we have made in our business. While some are bad things that we don’t see, like the big arse limiting beliefs that are holding us back from achieving what we want to achieve!
Both the good and bad things hiding in our blind spots can hold us back and make our lives way more difficult than they need to be. For example, if you don’t acknowledge all the good progress that you have made in your business, then you can feel defeated and helpless. You lose hope that you will ever succeed.
This is a really common blind spot with business owners, way more common than you would ever believe. The truth of course is usually very different to their perception of what is going on because they have blind spots where they can’t see the ‘truth’ of their situation. Often they have made massive progress, and they are really close to getting all the pieces to fall into place. But without seeing that blind spot they will usually continue to struggle along for years and eventually give up and shut down the business.
Can you see how a simple blind spot can have a profound effect on the results you get in your business and your life?
The same is true for the bad things that are hiding in your blind spots. Things like limiting beliefs, unsupportive habits, self sabotage, disempowering patterns and mis-aligned values. All of these can hide in your blind spots and cause havoc on your life and business.
Then when we “change lanes” in our life or business without being aware of what is hiding in our blind spots, we can have a nasty crash.
As a common example, a lot of people have a limiting belief around needing to work ridiculous hours in order for them to be successful. This blind spot will have them working way harder than they need to. This then has an impact on other areas of their life. Their health may decline, or the relationships around them suffer because they are rarely present. Plus the belief that they need to work hard to be valuable will mean that, unconsciously, they are creating more work and dramas in their life that will take up their time. It can be a nasty cycle that so many people experience.
This is why it is so important to look at what is in your own blind spots. By doing so, it is going to make the your journey so much smoother and easier. It is going to mean that results come faster than ever before.
It doesn’t meant that you won’t have challenges arise. But you will be better equipped to deal with them and get through them with more ease.
How do we find what is in our blind spots?
Great question! Obviously, when we can’t just turn around and check like we do in a car it is a bit more complicated. Of course you can now get sensors on your car’s side mirrors that tell you if there is a car in your blind spot so you don’t even need to turn around and look!
But that doesn’t help us in other aspects of our life and business.
Having an experienced coach to help you see what is in your blind spots is one of the best and quickest ways to find out. An experienced coach can see these easily, because they have the knowledge and experience to find them quickly for the people they work with. They have that external distance and perspective for them to show you what is going on that you can’t easily see.
That is exactly what I help people do, to see what is hiding in their blind spots and even more importantly, what to do about that stuff once you discover what is in there! Once you do that, you can get phenomenal results happening in your business and life.
This is an area that I am so passionate about because I hate seeing small business owners who are stressed to the max and not getting the results that they deserve.
