Things Keep Holding You Back
Share

You know you have far more potential than life so far demonstrates, but things keep holding you back. It’s not that you don’t work hard because you’re already putting so much time and effort into what you’re doing. You are also convinced that you are doing everything that you should be yet your results are simply not good enough, or at least they’re not producing the results you require.

“I wear the chain I forged in life….I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on of my own free will, and of my own free will I wore it.” Charles Dickens

Only you can break free from your chains. Life can be so much better but only you can bring the changes about. The more you work the more frustrations you experience because you never seem to make any headway. You’re hurting and know life is meant to be better than this. You desperately search to discover what things keep holding you back and the answer to what it’s going to take to achieve a breakthrough in your life.

So what’s things are holding you back?  How do you find out?

 Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.’ Nido Qubein

You know things aren’t quite right in your life, nothing seems to change, although you’re desperate for things to be better. So let’s look at important question. If we see things in our life that we want to change, then what is it that is holding us back from doing it?

Why can’t we just make the desired changes?

So if this resonates with you, ask yourself the question and refuse to give excuses as your answer. This is not the time to offer up yet more excuses you’ve been doing that long enough.

It’s been too easy for you to give yourself a long list of reasons that sound perfectly logical. But why do we feel the need to make excuses instead of working out what needs to change and making it happen?

Making changes certainly isn’t easy and will require a lot of effort. That’s frightening in your eyes because you already have too much to do, and more than enough to think about, the last thing you want is to have one more demand put on you. But this one will transform your life taking you from a world of disappointments to one of happiness.

There should be no question any longer about what you needs to do. It’s simple find what you’re holds you back and change it. You know that life could be better on so many levels, and that is what you truly want

Don’t hide away from the feeling that life should be better than it is or ignore the importance of finding what’s holding you back. Be determined from this point forward to becoming  the best you can possibly be in every area of life, and change those things that need changing.

My eye problem, and then the cyst on my brain finally ripped the blinkers off my eyes. It was as if I emerged from a dark hole into the light, and saw the vast possibilities of the world suddenly before me. I was to accelerate my life coaching business and my online platform, and since have rediscovered my ‘oomph.’

I was being held back by doing a job that I was very good at, but which I didn’t enjoy. Working in a business that should have been laid to rest and not pour more energy into trying to recover it. But as I refused to look at the reality of my situation, I couldn’t see it.

Change is hard, so unless the pain of not changing is worse than the pain of changing, it’s all too easy to stick with the status quo. My illness turned out to be precisely what I needed to finally break through to the life I really wanted. It made me look with clarity at my life and to wake up to what was holding me back.

Finding my way on this new path hasn’t happened overnight, but getting from a life of difficulties to breakthrough—from failure to success happened rapidly once I let go of what I had been doing.

You need to believe that you have greatness and brilliance inside of you and that it’s essential to follow your vision, intuition, and inspiration so you can achieve what you’re here to accomplish in life. The ability to act is not something you’re born with. Change is a skill you can learn– as long as you have the guts to actually do it.

Are you consistently doing what you need to do to improve, or hiding from reality and hoping for a miracle? Discover the things holding you back, and then make the changes. Start now!
