7 OBSTACLES TO YOUR SUCCESS AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO OVERCOME THEM

👉
1. LACK OF CLARITY
When we have unclear goals we tend to be indecisive and lack direction.
HOW TO OVERCOME: Get clear on your goals. If you can’t stop thinking about that dream, then it’s a good sign that you should go for it!

Write down the steps you think you need to achieve each goal. These steps might change as you progress and learn new skills. You just need to begin by writing the first version of your plan and get clear.

"Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible." - Tony Robbins

👉
2. FEAR OF FAILURE
We stop taking risks or trying new things when we are afraid to make a mistake or fail.

HOW TO OVERCOME: Learn to look at failure as a stepping stone to success and view it as a valuable learning experience.
“With enough adjustments you can make any decision into the right decision.” - Natalie O’Rourke

Start by taking small risks, analyze the outcomes of your actions, and persist. Remember that 80% of success is just showing up.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over again in my life.” And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

👉 3. PROCRASTINATION
There are many reasons for us to delay important tasks. Check out this post. It might help you clarify your “why”

HOW
TO OVERCOME: Break tasks into the smallest, manageable steps and set specific deadlines. Track your progress and time spent on each task. Try “Toggl” app. It has a free version. It’s great!

"The secret to getting ahead is getting started." - Mark Twain

👉
4. NEGATIVE SELF-TALK
We are wired to think negatively by default. Self-criticism and doubting our abilities naturally happen when we don’t take charge of our thinking.

HOW TO OVERCOME: Replace self-doubt with positive affirmations. Record yourself saying them on your phone and listen to or watch this recording daily. Surround yourself with positive people. Read inspiring posts, and watch videos to get a boost of motivation.

"The only limits you have are the limits you believe." - Wayne Dyer.

👉
5. LACK OF DISCIPLINE
We lose focus and stop following through on our goals.

HOW TO OVERCOME: Cultivate self-discipline through daily success habits and routines. Try the free Success Habit tracker, print it out, and track your success habits daily. Stay focused and committed.

"Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments." - Jim Rohn

👉
6. LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY
We are most likely to achieve our goals when we feel accountable. It’s a proven fact.
HOW TO OVERCOME: Surround yourself with like-minded friends, join online communities, and find a mentor who can provide encouragement and guidance if needed.

"Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams, support your ideas, and bring out the best in you." - Roy T. Bennett

👉
7. OVERWHELM AND LACK OF TIME MANAGEMENT
This usually happens when we try to do too much and don’t have effective time management skills.

HOW TO OVERCOME: Get clear on what’s important. Have a clear plan to follow up each day (up to 6 items). Set a priority for each task. Focus on the most important thing first, and eliminate distractions. Complete it before moving to the next items.

"You will never find time for anything. You must make it." - Charles Buxton

Success is always within our reach. Learn from the common reasons above and you can overcome any obstacles!

“Take charge of your situation. Don’t wait for someone to come and fix it for you. That person might never arrive. You are the leading character of your success story. Write it with power, edit often, and have as much fun as you can along the way!” - Natalie O’Rourke

Affirm: “I WRITE MY OWN SUCCESS STORY! I AM THE CEO OF MY LIFE!”
