Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest impact in our lives. In this post I want to dissect some of the ‘little’ factors that may be holing you back and they may even come as a surprise to you. If you’ve got stuck on your journey to success, one of these factors might have been the problem.
#1 Doubting Yourself
This is huge and goes unrecognized; we have so many limiting beliefs about ourselves its unreal. When you doubt about achieving success it won’t happen because what you believe manifest into your reality. Doubting yourself puts a fake wall around yourself and until you knock it down you remain stuck. There is a little voice you hear saying you’ll never do it, it won’t work out for you, and you are not good enough, what gives YOU the right to do such and such…. And so on. What matters is how you respond to that voice and what you do next.
#2 Negative thinking
So here’s the deal – we have up to 50,000 thoughts a day, around 40,000 of these are sadly negative ones. Your thoughts need a filter which means you need to recognise what thoughts you are having throughout the day. You need to become a ‘watcher’ and begin changing the negative thoughts into positive ones.
Do this by wearing an elastic band around your wrist for 30 days and every time you begin to have self sabotaging, negative thoughts, pull the elastic…then let it go. (OUCH) Then create a more empowering thought. This will help you not only have more empowering positive thoughts throughout your day; you will get into the habit of recognising what you are thinking about.
#3 Fear of failure
First of all you are going to fail at some point, over and over if you’re doing things right. The fact that you are doing nothing is the problem. Fear is an IDEA you have decided to create to keep you from achieving what you want in life. In other words – it’s not real. This IDEA that you will fail at something is the very thing holding you back.
