Step 1: Identify what is stopping you from taking actions
You need to identify certain things that are inhibiting you from achieving your full potential. One of the best approaches is to picture yourself inside a movie. Imagine that you are presented with an opportunity to innovate. Maybe you have been invited to join a team working on a new initiative, maybe you have discovered an unmet customer need, or maybe you have come up with a new way to improve a process in your organization. Whatever the scenario, in your movie, you feel a moment of excitement, but then choose not to pursue the possibility.

Step 2: Always be open to choosing your beliefs
It is important to always be open to choose your beliefs and be open to choosing some of the more outlandish ideas. Limiting beliefs are the things you believe about yourself that restrict your abilities. The first thing to establish is that our beliefs, whether they’re limiting or empowering, aren’t the truth. They’re just things we think. They feel real to us.
Step 3: Understanding the costs
Every time you have thought about taking innovative action, you must always ask yourself, “What is it I believe about myself that caused me to think that?” You should always notice what comes up, and write it down in your notebook. Every single time you feel bad, you must always ask yourself, “What do I believe about myself that has caused me to feel that?” By noticing the things that work and don’t work, you will be able to understand the costs.

When calculating “cost,” think about the monetary value of your time and energy, and put a real dollar value on it. Also, think about the emotional costs — to your relationships, sense of fulfilment, career, capacity to have an impact in the world.
Step 4: Always assessing the payoff
Often this payoff is something you may not be comfortable admitting to yourself. That’s a common feeling. If you are limited by control beliefs, you may be avoiding taking full responsibility. If you are limited by normative beliefs, your payoff may be that you avoid the jealousy of others who see you succeeding at something they didn’t try themselves.

Step 5: Choosing a newer belief
Great internal innovators don’t enter new situations wanting to keep doing things right; they have the intent to do things differently and better. Their innovations come from an ongoing drive to look for and pursue new opportunities. Without an intention to innovate, people tend to overlook opportunities and avoid taking actions to pursue them. If you can identify the belief holding you back, and then deconstruct and replace it, you will start seeing and acting on new possibilities.
In conclusion, these are the many steps to follow to make certain changes that are happening at your organization.
