Understanding What's Holding You Back

Understanding What's Holding You Back

Whether it's trying to make more sales, earn more clients or find a better job sometimes we just get stuck no matter what we do. We stop making progress on our goals without knowing why.

At times, it may seem as if the world is trying to hold us back. But that's hardly the case. The only thing holding you back from reaching your goals and making your dreams come true is yourself. And for some that's a hard pill to swallow.

All of those external barriers are just illusions. And yet we tend to blame our lack of success on these stumbling blocks. We tend to forget that we can break through any barrier to achieve our goals.

Sometimes you just have to be willing to look at the bigger picture and see what's really holding you back. Those so-called barriers and obstacles that seem to be in your way - the lack of clients, the bad economy, whatever it is that's blocking you - are just excuses to not push harder. If you're trying to secure more clients or make more sales don't blame the economy or say people just aren't buying right now - find another way instead. Remember to stay creative in your endeavors.

If there is a will, there is a way. If you want something bad enough you'll figure out a way to get it. Just realize that nothing can hold you back except yourself. Many people have defied the odds over the years to achieve their dreams. When people told them it couldn't be done or that they would never amount to anything those people throughout history set out to prove them wrong.

So don't get into the mindset that your goal is unachievable or that you don't deserve to be successful. We are all worthy of having our dreams coming true. The problem is that our society has brainwashed the majority of us into believing that only a precious few are worthy of having the best while the rest of us have to struggle throughout our lives.

That is simply not true. You have the power to choose what you want for your life and you have the power within you to achieve whatever you want. The only way to succeed is to realize that the only way to fail is by not trying at all.

Not taking action and not believing in yourself are the biggest obstacles you have to face when it comes to achieving your goals. The main barriers you have to face are within you. Once you successfully take on the barriers within, those internal roadblocks, the rest of the way gets much easier. Anything else that gets in your way will be just another hurdle to jump.

Just know in your heart that you can do it. And remember that your greatest barrier lies within you. You only have to make the choice to get past it - then and only then will you be on your way to success.
