Odds are this is what is holding you back.

Fear of failure.

Almost everyone is afraid of failure. Except successful people. That is why there are so few successful people. There are very few sure things in this world, so almost everything you do requires some degree of risk. Where we fall down is the areas we attach importance to. Then we freeze and nothing happens. And we can’t get what we want if nothing happens. Find a way to take steps even if we are afraid. Break what you are afraid of into tiny pieces and take it a piece at a time. Whatever you do, you must do something or you will never make progress.

Success is waiting just beyond you fear of failure.

What is the one thing standing between you and success?

Resistance.

Whenever we start to take a step towards our goals, resistance shows up. Resistance is unique in that it immediately engages the fight-or-flight mechanism, and you never know how you are going to react until you are confronted with it. The key to fighting resistance is to reconize it when it pops up as it takes many different forms. Then make yourself believe that what you want to accomplish is bigger, way bigger, than what stands in your way.

Resistance is waiting for you, do you know what to do?

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift.

Your success in any endeavor is forever linked directly to your heart, your will, and your steadfast commitment to goals.

You cannot ever let fatigue make you a coward, nor can you ever expect to win without struggling, without suffering, without sacrificing…as these are all essential elements of the DNA of winning. The relentless attitude is the winning attitude and the remarkable thing about life is that we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. You cannot change your past. You cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. You cannot change the inevitable. The only thing you can do is to play on the one string you have, and that is your attitude

So what is it: you can choose to be relentless, or you can choose to roll over and surrender to weakness.

Six ways to overcome resistance to getting something done.

Here is how to avoid getting stuck trying to get a goal accomplished.

1. Be aware you are resisting something. Acknowledge you have a problem.

2. Remove distractions. Quiet the phone, stop checking emails, and concentrate on the task at hand.

3. Schedule it. Put it on your calendar and make an “appointment” to do it.

4. Start even when you are not ready. Don’t wait for things to be perfect.

5. Don’t expect instant gratification. Things take time, accept it.

6. Get started and stay with it. You have to do the work.

Recognize something that has been holding you back?

Stop saying you just don’t have what it takes and start practicing.

Saying you just don’t have the right genes to do something may fool some people but you know the truth is that you are not putting in the effort.

Genetics play a part, but most of what holds us back is our lack of commitment to practicing until we gain mastery. Maybe you won’t be the best in your field, but I bet you can be a contender. Just committing to making more effort will improve your performance. And once you really put your heart into it, the results will amaze you.

Stop blaming your genes and give it a shot.

It will be better than you imagined.

Most people overestimate how bad things will be and underestimate how good things will be.

When you think about things move your estimated outcome up a notch. Odds are you are being too pessimistic about outcomes. You miss opportunities because you do not pursue things that appear too hard. Or you don’t realize how good something can be. Either way your natural pessimism holds you back.

Ready to find out how good something really is?

Four things to give up today.

Stop doing these things today and you will have a perfect life.

1. Doubting yourself. There are plenty of people to do that for you.

2. Procrastination. Once you start you will wonder why you ever hesitated.

3. Fear of success. This is hard to spot, but man is it powerful.

4. Perfectionism. Getting to perfect is just never worth it.

OK, which one are you giving up first?

You need to believe you can accomplish your goal if you want to accomplish your goal.

You can set anything you want for a goal, but if you don’t really believe in it, you will fail.

The R in SMART goals stands for realistic and this is key to actually achieving the goal. If you don’t really believe in your goal, at some level you will hold back and not accomplish it. Yes, you want to stretch you goals, but if you go too far out you will fail.

Do you believe in the goals you have set for yourself?

Getting out of your comfort zone is not the answer, it is the start.

I never said getting out of your comfort zone is the answer to your issues. What is does is create space for the answer.

Getting out of your comfort zone creates disruption. It is confrontation to your status quo. It is the end of silence that allows you to stay stuck. These are the new conditions that are needed for you to shake things up and find a new course to achieve the life you really want.

What can you get uncomfortable with right now?

Why you should never say, “I never expected this kind of success”.

Never expecting success goes a long way to guaranteeing that you will not be successful. That is why it is so rare to hear people saying “I never expected this kind of success.

Expectations are everything. Positive and negative. Expecting or not expecting something moves you towards or away for the event. Focus on what you want and expect it to happen to increase your chances it will happen.

What success can you begin to expect right now?
