Through the course of our lives… we will all face many obstacles!
Some obstacles are easy to overstep, while others take a little more effort to overcome. But when it comes to the pursuit of our happiness, goals, and dreams, there are 3 obstacles that will serve as our greatest adversaries, and will hold us back every step of the way.
There is a reason why this is #1… so many great ideas, new inventions, and promising careers have been held back because of fear! Being afraid to step out into the unknown, being afraid to take a risk, or being afraid to let a voice be heard… has caused countless people to miss their purpose in life. Fear is the result of self-doubt, which causes most to sit on the sideline, but the only way to conquer fear… is to get up and get in the game.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in the game, or waiting to find that courage to get off the bench… if you haven’t mastered procrastination, you’re going nowhere! Procrastination isn’t an emotion, it’s a mindset… and a learned trait. The ‘I’ll do it tomorrow.’ philosophy has held more people back who are in the game, than people who are afraid to try. Society has taught us that it’s okay to ‘put things off’ for later, however, when we become comfortable with putting things off… later never happens.
Yes You! More often than not, the biggest obstacle that is holding you back… is YOURSELF! The easiest thing to do is talk! We talk about what we want to do, what we’re going to do, and how we’re going to do it. But when it’s time to put in work… we get in our own way! We come up with any and every excuse, we have no self-discipline, and we veer off into left field from every distraction that’s placed in front of us. By failing to sacrifice for what we want, we single-handedly hold ourselves back… then we blame everything and everyone else.
