Barriers To Success- 10 Obstacles That Will Stop You In Your Tracks
Wanting success and actually achieving success are two totally different things.
We all dream of having millions in the bank, the ideal job, the luxury house, the dream car and the perfect partner, but for us to have any chance of achieving all this then we must first be aware of the common barriers to success that we’re likely to run into.
As the saying goes forewarned is forearmed.
Therefore being aware of these common and debilitating barriers to success beforehand will better prepare you to deal with any obstacles and challenges that get in your way.
1. Poor attitude.
Our attitude is without doubt the biggest determinant to what kind of results we get in life.
Our attitude determines what we think and do, which ultimately determines what we create.
How many of us fail to get off first base or simply follow through with our plans because we sabotage our ability and results with toxic thoughts and negative self-talk.
2. Lack of Goals
Many people go through life without setting themselves any goals.
Without goals you have no map of where you want to go and what you want to achieve
Goals are vital cog in achieving success…start setting them!!!!
3. Self doubt.
The demon of self-doubt is one of the major barriers in preventing people from achieving success and realizing their goals.
Negative thoughts about whether we’re good enough to succeed often leads to us talking ourselves out of starting anything.
4. Giving Up
We’ve all been guilty of quitting at one time or other.
I recently read a quote by Anthony Robbins ‘When it looks impossible and you are ready to quit, victory is near.”
This so true…just ask R.U Darby and his uncle.
5. Fear of Failure
There is nothing wrong with having a fear of failing. Everyone fears failure. Even the Richard Branson’s and the Bill Gates’ of the world have been struck by the fear of failure at some point.
However, what you must ensure is to never let it paralyze and stop you from taking action.
The purpose of fear is not to restrict or inhibit, but to heighten our senses, increase our focus, and instill us with drive and determination
6. Poor planning.
Poor planning and implementation drastically reduce your chances of success.
