What's Holding You Back?
What's Holding You Back?
Think for a moment about the things you want out of life. Perhaps there are certain things you had hoped to accomplish by now. Among those things might be a degree of financial success, social status, independence, a wholesome family life or the attainment of some educational goal. Think for a moment about how many of these goals you have already achieved. Maybe one, or more, but what about the ones you have not yet accomplished?
What will you do with the good intentions, putting off until later and the self doubt that often causes us to back away from some of what we really want out of life. Think about it?
What is your heart's desire and what are you doing to make it happen?
What is holding you back? Here is a list of a few things that typically prevent us from having the success we desire.
- Procrastination. Stop putting things off. If you want it, you have to begin the process of getting it (whatever 'it" is).
- Self Doubt. You must put aside your fear of failure and do whatever is necessary to build your self confidence. Read affirmations, subscribe to inspirational newsletters, talk to someone who believes in you. Confront whatever personal issues you have that may be a hindrance and begin to work toward their solution.
- Lack of Knowledge. I am not necessarily talking about your level of formal education, although if that is what you need to do to fulfill you dreams - do it. It's probably not to late. Where there is a will there is a way. If you lack knowledge about how to achieve a particular aim, then purpose in yourself to learn all you can about how to make it happen. Read, study and research all you can about it. Find out who the experts and see if you can learn from them. If possible, find a mentor to help and guide in along the way to reaching your goals.
The question still remains - What's holding you back? If your desire is work at home running an online business I suggest you subscribe to a newsletter a one source of information on your topic of interest.
