Here is the main reason you are not succeeding.

Your self-image does not match who you want to become.

If your self-image does not match the person you want to become, no amount of goal setting will help you. Do some serious thinking about who you think you are. If you do not like yourself very much, you need to work on changing your self-image. Things like affirmations, positive self-talk, associating with positive people, etc. will all move your self-image up a notch.

It is time to acknowledge you are way better than you think you are.

Here is how to keep other people from pulling you down.

The sad truth is that most of the people around you want you to fail.

They may not even know it but most people will throw roadblocks in front of your efforts to succeed. You can’t control them but you can control how you respond. You have to keep your self confidence up through the use of affirmations and taking positive action. You deserve to be happy and successful. Keep a list of your past accomplishments, even if they are small. Remember them when the Nay Sayers come around and keep on keeping on.

Stay strong!

The one thing that will remove your feeling of worthlessness.

You change your life until you change your current beliefs and this includes removing your feeling of worthlessness.

We all have at least one area of our life in which we feel worthless. Chances are someone else gave you that feeling and you have run from anything in that area since then. You need to take back that area one step at a time. When you think about being worthless in some area ask yourself what baby step can you take to feel the fear and do it anyway. Then take that step. Give yourself credit for what you did and realize that you are taking your life back.

What baby step can you take right now?

Don’t let anyone “fix” you.

The world is full of people that want you to change in some way. Run from them!

Everyone has a plan for you, just change this one little thing, and you will be perfect. Of course they don’t agree with each other, but they know what’s best for you. Well I am pretty sure you know what is best for you and even if you don’t, friends and family are the worst places to find out.
Mentors, therapists, subject matter experts, maybe, but leave the friends and family plan to the phone company.

You are fine, go out and act that way.

Asking for feedback can speed your success.

Feedback raises our self-awareness and helps up spot blind spots in our thinking.

If you ask other people for their opinions on how you are handing things, their feedback can help you spot patterns and habits that may be counter productive. And if you take steps to correct the things holding you back, you speed up your progress. Just be careful to seek feedback from someone you trust.

Feedback is the breakfast of champions, have a bowl today.

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?

Why people not as smart as you do better than you.

It happens because those people focus on their wins instead of their loses.

Successful people are happier than non-successful people but it is because they don’t wait to win in order to be happy. They focus on the good in every outcome. Research shows, that those who are happiest are the most successful. When you are happy, success comes easier. You are more creative and more resilient. You think bigger, are more hopeful and optimistic. These are the keys to success.

What just happened that you could find the good in?

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?

Pay attention to your thoughts.

By paying attention, you can catch negative or self-destructive thoughts before they take root.

Negative thoughts have a way of sneaking into our mind and can undercut you self-esteem. If you actually listen to your thoughts you can catch these ideas and stop your mind from accepting them. Once you catch a negative thought, make an effort to replace it with a positive thought aimed at improving your self-esteem.

Pay attention to the next thought you have.

“Power Posing” can help you gain success.

“Power Posing” is the act of assuming a position that gives you strength and self-confidence. Copying a “Wonder Woman” stance is an example of this that works for men or women.

Without going into all the reasons behind it, I can tell you “Power Posing” really works to give you a quick shot of self-confidence. It is a great technique to use when you a feeling down or lacking the courage to move forward on something. When you pretend to feel powerful, you are more apt to actually feel powerful.

Give the “Wonder Woman” stance a try right now and watch how you feel.
