What’s really holding you back from taking life by the horns and achieving the very best life you can.
There is always something in our head that stops us from achieving something in our lives, whether it be getting into shape, a project around the house, start eating well whatever it maybe we make some reason up that stops us.
Does this sound similar.
“ I can’t do that, it’s too hard/ difficult”?
“ I’ll never be able to look like that”?
“ I’ll get to it later”? But later never comes. Or whatever other self limiting beliefs you tell your self.
Fear of failure or failing. Do you hold your self back because you feel you might fail or not succeed and you don’t want to look silly or stupid so you again do nothing.
Or is it simply that you don’t really know where to start or what to do so the simple thing is to do nothing at all.
I’ll let you in on a secret. I had a limiting belief. That I couldn’t blogs to clients, because I didn’t know what to write, I didn’t think I was any good at it and what if no ones reads them or likes them. So I really didn’t do many and avoided it. The fact is that when I took the time to actually look at my life and what I had accomplished, the challenges I’ve faced that might resonate with even just one client well I actually had lots that I could write about.
The truth is that not everyone will like what I write about or even understand what I’m writing about and that’s ok. As long as I can reach one person, I’m happy. That might be the one thing that helps change that person’s perspective on life.
It’s the same with anything we do in life, we should do it for ourselves and no one else. Sure it might challenge us and take us outside our comfort zones, but it will also make us better people. Unless you try and give something a go you will never know what you can accomplish in life. Don’t hold yourself back any longer.
We are not all designed to be perfect at everything, somethings will be easy, others more challenging and the sooner you understand that it’s ok to fail or make mistakes, and it’s what we choose to do with that and tell ourselves is the key. A whole world awaits you so go out and conquer it. Push yourself to do something this week that challenges and pushes you outside your comfort zone.
This week I challenge all of you to look at one thing in your life that is holding you back from achieving greatness.
Ask yourself, “What is holding me back”!
Have a great week.
