In this blog post, l will be exploring Robert Dilts’ logical levels of change model. This model posits that there are six different levels at which change can occur: environment, behaviour, capabilities, beliefs, identity, and spirituality. I will be focusing specifically on the difference between beliefs and capabilities. So, what exactly is the difference between these two concepts? Let’s take a closer look.

Beliefs Versus Capabilities

A belief is something that we hold to be true, while a capability is something that we are able to do. For example, if I believe that I am not good enough, then I will not try to do anything that requires me to be good enough. On the other hand, if I have the capability as well as the positive belief to use technology, deliver a presentation, dress for success, speak with confidence or any other activity that builds my business, the chances of my success are dramatically increased. 

It’s important to note that our beliefs often shape our capabilities. If we believe that we are not capable of doing something, then we probably won’t even try to do it. However, it’s also important to remember that our capabilities often shape our beliefs. If we repeatedly try to do something and fail, then we will probably start to believe that we are not capable of doing it. 

The takeaway from all this is that our beliefs and capabilities are interconnected; they both influence and are influenced by each other. It’s important to be aware of this so that we can consciously choose which belief we want to hold about ourselves instead of being passive victims of our own self-limiting beliefs. 

5 signs it is NOT a limiting belief but a capability gap:

  1. You have spent years and a lot of time, energy and money on clearing or reprogramming, unblocking or dissolving your limiting beliefs, yet your business is still not where you would like it to be. 
  2. You struggle with FOMO (fear of missing out).
  3. You are so passionate about what you do yet you feel you have ‘tried everything yet people are still not buying as often as you would like’
  4. You are close to giving up and quitting your business 
  5. You feel frustrated, ignored and undervalued 

Stay positive, keep striving and look to increase your capabilities so you can achieve your goals.  ✨
