What’s Holding You Back?

What is holding you back from obtaining some of your biggest dreams and goals? If you look real close at your actions, thoughts and written goals, it usually comes down to us. Most achievement happens when we decide we are unstoppable and move forward on our plan to achievement.

Each day we are all faced with many decisions and can work in many directions. Getting focused and centered is a big key to this success that we crave. Do you have a plan of attack? Have you done a personal assessment of your strengths and weaknesses. It is a good idea to really have a good talking with yourself.

Do not be hard on yourself, but really analyze what is working and what is not. What gets you excited, and what parts of your current business turn you off? If you are honest with yourself, this practice can pay huge dividends in the near future for you. Just because you have always done something one way does not mean you cannot change and accomplish this task differently.

Whether it is building better relationships, getting in fantastic shape, becoming an expert in various fields of endeavor – this is not magic, and others are not just lucky. It is up to us – you and me – to become captain of our own destiny. To blame others and circumstance just does not cut it.

Asking for help is not weakness. Asking for help is maturity. Having clear goals with a strong action plan is the beginning of your new beginning. People want to work with people that are turned on and plugged in. When you meet these type of sales people you can feel their energy immediately. We all want to tap into that warm secure feeling. I am here to tell you we all can tap into it. It is not for the chosen few. Yet few choose to take their business and consciousness to the next level.

I have always been of the mindset that there are no limits to what we can achieve. Sure, the food you eat, the thoughts you think and the your attitude are a big part of this breakthrough we are discussing. Each day we are given the opportunity to soar into achievement and success. It is up to us to decide what is success for you.

What are the lines that are holding you down? How do I cut them and get to the sunny side of life? Being strong willed and decide “You Are Unstoppable” will surly help! Getting quiet with yourself so you can hear the little voice we all have within!

Reading inspiring works, especially in the morning, helps to get us in the right mindset. Putting a gold bubble around yourself that keeps the negative out is a good idea. It is our responsibility to monitor the thoughts we choose to think the words we choose to speak. Little changes will make a big difference.

For example, giving everyone you meet eye contact and a sincere greeting. Asking questions is good – listening and giving others a chance to speak is better. Please include in your goals family time, savings, travel, date nights as well as work related goals, such as making calls and sending out marketing pieces.

In conclusion, we all have the power and greatness in us. We have to nurture and grow our dreams. It is up to each one of us to move to the light. I hope to see you at a conference or on a showing. Have a prosperous and successful 2011.
