1 Thing That Holds You Back From Success & 6 Things to do about it

The truth is everyone has what it takes to succeed; you have the ability to create and complete your goals which will, in turn, give you happiness and success over and above anything else. However, it is impossible to reach a goal when you don’t have one!

Why don’t we set goals and conquer them? What holds us back?

To believe in yourself to conquer the desired goal is the starting point of success, this occurs when you know exactly what you want in all areas of your life.

Here’s the big question, ‘If so many people have a desire for winning and everyone can achieve this success in their life why do only a small portion of the masses succeed?’

The Answer is you must believe in yourself.

Only a few people truly believe in their potential and ever set goals believing they will achieve it.

Here’s the deal – belief is a state of mind it comes from within,  it’s when you know you can do something or something will happen it’s NOT wishing or hoping it’s actually knowing that by faith the thing you want will happen.

We all go through difficult times, but the wisdom here is that difficult times are experiences that define and shape who we are and teach us important lessons in life. The voice that you hear telling you “you’re not good enough to succeed” is fear, therefore you must believe in yourself to overcome fear in order to get where you want to go.

According to experts, babies are born with 2 fears – fear of falling and fear of loud noises. So ALL of our fears have been developed along the way and shaped by our experiences.

As the mind shapes your fear, it also shapes your thoughts and actions.

Whatever you believe in your mind you will attract those circumstances. So if you believe you have difficult relationships you will attract to yourself individuals that cause difficult relationships. Whether or not you believe this, it’s true.

6 Steps to Overcome fear and believe in yourself
