It’s not uncommon for smart, ambitious people to become stuck in patterns of behavior that can prevent them from reaching their potential in relationships, business, and personal goals.
According to Psychotherapist turned Transformational Teacher, Healer, and Mentor Teresa Kaplan, most people have negative stories they have accrued since childhood and beyond that can impact all areas of life.
On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Kaplan discussed how she is helping her clients to unlock their full potential by releasing limiting beliefs.
During the interview, Kaplan explained how patterns and beliefs can significantly impact people’s lives, saying, “Most of the time, we have so much more going on than we realize, and that’s a part of why we end up getting frustrated or staying stuck. We can talk about patterns in terms of mental patterns where we ruminate on the same thoughts throughout the day without even realizing it. We have emotional patterns, which are really kind of typical triggers that each of us have that occur in our relationships and other places. And then, of course, we have behavioral and situational patterns where despite our best intentions, we may continuously find ourselves in the same situation or attracting the same kind of partner that doesn’t meet our needs. Pretty much our whole life is patterns when you think about it.”
Kaplan explained the concept of “Fear Pairs” and how subconscious anxieties can create resistance and negative patterns that lead to self-sabotage, saying,” We all have fear pairs stored in our subconscious that we’re unaware of. Most of the time, we’re only aware of what we want. Like, I really want success. But if we really want success, and it’s not happening, then almost always it means that there’s some other part of us inside that is feeling resistant to success, that has a fear of success. I’ve found that the more charge someone has around wanting something, almost always, the more resistant the other part of them is. There is a kind of confusion in our subconscious, in our psyche, around what it looks like to have a fear of success and other repercussions that we’re not even aware of at all. We just know that we just want to be successful, but subconsciously we have these beliefs and thoughts around, ‘if I’m successful, then I’m more susceptible to having people be jealous of me or being judged or criticized.’ The fear of success and failure is the most common ‘Fear Pair,’ but we have hundreds of them. So anytime you notice yourself wanting something, but it’s not coming easily, then it’s a good idea to stop and think, ‘Is there any part of me that’s uncomfortable with actually getting to attain this?’ And sometimes, it’s simply that it hasn’t been a part of our reality, so we don’t know how to receive it. We don’t know how to embody it because we don’t have the wiring for it.”
