Are Old Beliefs Sabotaging Your Personal Growth?

Are old beliefs sabotaging your personal growth? Unfortunately, I believe many of us self-sabotage daily. We’ve become confused in an over-communicated world that tells us how to behave, what to wear, and how to think… Oh, and let’s not forget all of our childhood and relationship experiences and how they, too, have dramatically influenced us. It’s overwhelming. Please understand these unwanted beliefs can separate us from our Divinely appointed personality type.

Some of us identify with two, three, or four different personality types. The reason why is we are stuck in old beliefs. Lies are typically unconscious drivers of our behaviors. What’s especially confusing is typology is grounded in career objectives, the business side of life.

I’m introducing personality typing with a spiritual understanding grounded in our human (reasoned side) and our beingness (soulful, heart -center side), directing us to our organic whole, our TrueSelf.

This Is a New Paradigm in Personality Typing

I’m super excited to start teaching what I’ve learned. I’ve studied and researched many experts on the topic of personality typing for years. Plus, I’ve used what I’ve developed for myself over the past decade; the 3 stages of personality typing, fear-based, Divinely Inspired, and onto your TrueSelf stage. Please know this isn’t a common blog on personality typing. Based on my research interpretations and personal experiences, I’ve taken the liberty to introduce the ‘soul’ role’ into personality typing. This approach allows us to tap into our personal Divinity. It helps us make decisions and take action from a place of our own truth. This is the missing piece of personality typing for those who desire to live a big, fat juicy life; your dream, your way, and completely fulfilled.

As an ENTP, I’m a curious soul. Discovering or recreating something new is in my nature. So read on if I’ve piqued your interests. Or, if you don’t have time, here are the cliff notes.

A Gallup poll uncovered that out of the world’s one billion full-time workers, only 15% of people are engaged at work. That means that an astronomical 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs. Dec 3, 2019

A Global Gallup Poll

Why are so many people unhappy in their jobs? This poll is eye-opening into the world of typology as a tool for career match-making. Here are my thoughts. First, career typing is soulless, literally. What I now know, and believe to be true, is personality typing is so much more than a career objective. I’ve been using personality typing as a tool to discover my TrueSelf, my truth, working from the outside in, for more than ten years.

Note, this takes time, effort, and commitment. But it’s invaluable to develop an unshakeable, Divinely built foundation. This is especially critical in these chaotic times. If you’re unsure, or you’ve adopted another’s way of living, you’ve removed yourself from your own power, which can lead to struggle, ongoing challenges, and feelings of hopelessness. I know I’ve been down this road during a relentless 7-year tsunami. I don’t want this for you. I want you to live from your TrueSelf, your power, passion, and purpose.

Let’s start at the beginning.

The Magic of Personality Typing

I don’t know about you, but I believed everything my parents told me. Did you? Ideas on self-worth, money, boundaries, self-respect, and the list goes on. I believed these revelations to be true. I never questioned my family’s philosophies until I started to experience repetitive self-sabotaging behaviors and relentless life challenges that begged me to question myself. To Stop. Reevaluate. And reflect on my beliefs.

Here’s how the magic of personality typing comes into play. When you start to develop an awareness of your personality type, understanding the metaphysical law of Devine Design, you realize your personality type is a tool for self-growth and self-understanding. As the relationship with your personality type grows, you gain a sense of clarity, essential to living a joyful life. You’ll be more confident, not easily swayed by the masses. And you tend to remain calm in the face of adversity and collective calamities. 

Once I realized my personality’s full potential, I witnessed the majority of my childhood, societal, and relationship beliefs shift and change slowly. Beliefs I had accepted as my own truths were, in fact, someone else’s. These untruths were unconscious drivers of my actions.

Many of us have been or will be experiencing inconsistent or contradictory thoughts related to beliefs and attitudes. This confusion creates uneasy feelings, especially if the disparity between your beliefs and behaviors is foundational to your sense of self.

Developing an intimate relationship with your personality type allows you to reevaluate your current beliefs and values, acting as a benchmark to evaluate beliefs. Yes, this can be challenging, with many highs and lows. But once you begin the journey, you’ll recognize and release old patterns of behavior that sabotage your personal growth.

Personality Typing and a Soulful Heart Comes Together

Career personality type assessments are huge. Live Science reports 1.5 million people take a personality test annually. A Gallop poll results support my new-founded theory, the soul’s role in personality, stating only 15% of the population is happy with their career choice. It seems clear that if we only focus on one aspect of ourselves, our careers, then career personality tests would appear to be less relevant. Don’t take my word, as 85% of the population, according to Gallop stated, are unhappy at work. Why? We are three-dimensional; human (reasoned mind), beings (soulful hearts), and body (the individual expression – how the personality expresses itself in the world). Rarely does an employer address the soul aspects of an employee?

In fact, I believe we choose our personality type to align with our soul’s evolution. Our SoulSelf holds the keys to love, joy, happiness, kindness, compassion, peace… While our personality types help us with reasoning, decisions, attitudes, and how we deal with the world. Working together, this dynamic partnership helps us find our center, our TrueSelf, the purest essence of who we really are.

Are Old Beliefs Sabotaging Your Personal Growth?

If one of your life goals is to commit to a self-awareness path, may I suggest you start in early childhood? So many of us rush to a course in spirituality or self-growth, only to find ourselves more confused or even guilty and ashamed? This is a perfect example of not understanding your personality type. Each type has a specific approach to life, including a highly personalized spiritual practice. To get to your truth is usually unraveled in inherited childhood beliefs. It’s why I say it’s best to work from the outside, in.

Plus, your SoulSelf, the loving aspect of you, isn’t able to guide you when your fearful personality type is in the driver’s seat. You see, love doesn’t communicate with fear. It’s an energy thing. Not to worry. I share tips, insights, and practical takeaways on the blog, and I go much deeper in a book I’m penning, titled The Soul’s Role in Personality Typing.©️ This book is being written to teach you how to create a joyful life to leave behind a fear-based personality and step into a Divinely Inspired personality type, which ultimately leads to living from your TrueSelf, your truth.

Recap: Are Old Beliefs Sabotaging Your Personal Growth?

If you think old beliefs are sabotaging your personal growth, here’s a few starters to start unraveling them:

  • First, you must correctly identify your personality type,
  • Confusion around quiz results may arise from inherited beliefs that are at odds with your Divinely appointed personality type,
  • Personality type as we know it today is one-sided, focused on career objectives, it’s soulless. With over 85% of us unhappy with our career choices, I see a huge gap in the effectiveness of career typology,
  • I believe we are three-dimensional, a mind, body, and soul, which aligns to create our TrueSelf. My new personality type applies a spiritual understanding to personality typing, teaching you how to create a joyful life designed by a Divinely appointed personality type that aligns with your SoulSelf to help you discover your TrueSelf,
  • If one of your life goals is to live an enlightened life, I suggest you start early in childhood, where many inherited beliefs and unfounded truths lead to unconscious actions, behaviors, and self-sabotage.
