5 Things You Do That Are Holding You Back

In the years we have spent coaching and teaching and helping others….we’ve have recognized patters in what we do that hold us back from our “Real” lives.  Here are the 5 most common things that are keeping us from our dreams and desires.

You compare yourself to others.

We have spoken about this a few times.  Stop looking at others lives and being sad or upset about your current situation.  It causes fear.  Your life is “Your” life….its you.  You can’t follow their plan or their life exactly.  You are unique so make sure that your path fits you.  You will be happier and won’t get in your own way on the path to success.

Shift your focus instead to where you are today compared to yesterday to get a more accurate picture of the progress you’re making.

You wait for others’ permission

No one is going to come and tell you its time to start, or where to be.  Don’t wait for them.  YOU know what’s best for you. Trust your gut and your heart, live by YOUR standards, and you’re much more likely to create a life that makes you happy.

Once you understand that you are responsible for everything that has come and gone in your life you’ll realize that everything from here onwards depends on you as well.

You are to worried about failing

If you really want to put a halt on your happiness.  Go ahead and worry about it not happening.  FEAR of anything is the biggest destroyer of your life.  It will control your actions and movement leaving you in a place and mental state that is very hard to get out of

You wait for the “right” time

You keep putting something off because it’s not the “right” time yet. You need to make a few more improvements, get more experience, learn a few more skills. You wait for the economy to improve, the weather to get better or for a sign that you should start. This is just your mind playing delay tactics and winning. The right time is now.

You expect results right now

Everything in life takes time.  Look how long it took you to be who you are today.  So why do we think that everything will change overnight?  Persistence and inspired action are the keys to getting your results.
