**Overcoming Self-Sabotage: The Power of Tapping and Belief**
Have you ever felt like you’re holding yourself back from achieving your goals? Do you struggle with limiting beliefs and self-doubt? If so, you’re not alone. In this interview, coach and EFT practitioner Cyrus shared his insights on how to overcome self-sabotage and limiting beliefs to experience more joy and success in life.
Cyrus explained that many people are sabotaged by their own defense mechanisms, which are meant to keep them safe but end up getting in the way of their growth and success. He shared a personal experience from 1977 when his self-doubt and limiting beliefs held him back from trying his best in a vocal competition. He also discussed the common belief of “not good enough” and how it can hold people back in their personal and professional lives.
So, how can we overcome these self-sabotaging beliefs? Cyrus explained that his work involves dismantling limiting beliefs and helping people recognize when their beliefs are not serving them well. One of the tools he uses is tapping, which involves tapping on certain pressure points on the face and upper torso while thinking about a problem or issue that is causing emotional distress. This sends a calming message to the brain and can help dislodge negative emotions.
Cyrus emphasized that tapping is not a one-time fix and may require additional sessions. However, it is a powerful tool for overcoming emotional issues and improving confidence and self-esteem. He also encouraged his clients to give their fears a voice and then let them go, acknowledging that there are no bad emotions and our defense mechanisms are just trying to keep us safe.
Beyond tapping, Cyrus also discussed the power of belief and how it can either help or hinder us. He suggested that confidence is key and that we need to believe in ourselves to succeed. He also shared six tips for feeling confident when speaking in public, including the importance of bringing a gift and being of service to the audience.
Overall, Cyrus’s insights on self-sabotage and limiting beliefs are valuable for anyone looking to overcome their fears and achieve their goals. By recognizing our defense mechanisms and using tools like tapping and belief, we can break free from self-sabotaging patterns and experience more joy and success in life.
