Forewarned is forearmed, and by knowing in advance what can stop you from realizing your goals, you’ll be able to do what’s necessary to overcome these obstacles and move straight through to victory.
The first obstacle is engaging in limiting beliefs. Need I say more? Well, maybe…
If we get what we think about, and we think we don’t have what it takes to accomplish something, what happens? We don’t accomplish it. If we believe that we don’t deserve success, do we get it? Not likely. And if we’re always being negative, thinking negative, speaking negative, what happens? Nothing good.
We achieve what we believe. Period. Not what we hope for, desire, wish for, etc. There used to be a computer expression – garbage in, garbage out. And it’s the same way with your beliefs – bad thoughts in, bad results out.
Whatever it takes, whatever you’ve got to do, find a way to lose the limiting beliefs and replace them with positive, boundless limitless thoughts of success.
The second obstacle to success? It’s giving up too soon. There is a quote I like…
While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior. -Henry C. Link
You’ve no doubt heard the story of the man who mined for gold and gave up just inches shy of hitting the mother lode. It’s the same way in anything – every time you give up, you lose. Wayne Gretsky said: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
You’ve got to keep shooting, keep moving towards your goal, because it is only through quitting that you can fail.
If you do not quit, you cannot fail because you are not done yet.
As Winston Churchill said, “Never, never, never, never give up.”
Follow this timeless wisdom in your business and you will overcome obstacles every day.
