You can go online and find load and loads of research on why you may be sabotaging yourself, why you need to stop, and how to stop. That won’t be this article. I’m going to get down to the studs and stop dancing around the numbers and the reasons why. I’m going to be real here and straight up ask you questions. If you can say yes to any one of these questions then you are holding yourself back. Okay…go!
Do you refuse to adapt? Example: You complain about the new system at work every time you use it. And you refuse to learn how to use it the right way.
Do you give up prematurely? Example: You told yourself you were going to stop eating meat for 30 days. After 10 days, you are back to your old ways.
Do you fear failure? Example: If you start that business you have dreaming of for 3 years now, other people might think it is a dumb idea. You might lose money on it. You don’t know how to start a business.
Are you waiting for the perfect moment? Example: You have an idea that will help your company save money. You are waiting for the perfect moment to tell your boss about it.
Are you a people pleaser? Example: You do not have time to take on 2 new projects. But you tell your coworker “yes of course” you will do it.
Are you going at it alone? Example: You don’t have a network of people encouraging you.
If you answered yes to any of these than it is important for you to know that you can use these obstacles as stepping stones to your success. You don’t have to be stuck. You can allow yourself to feel the rewards of your self-improvement. Now, go ahead and Google some articles on how to get un-stuck and start making things happen for yourself. You deserve it.
