Have you ever stopped yourself from accomplishing a goal you set for yourself? It can be one of the most frustrating things to be the only one standing in your own way. In this blog, I'm going to share with you the top three reasons that I believe keep most people from accomplishing their dreams.
1. They don't believe in themselves.
Not believing in ourselves is a behavior that we learned as a child growing up. Think about it... When was the last time you saw a nine month old baby who is learning how to walk fall down a couple of times and then ultimately, cross his arms, sit in a corner, and give up? Never. Because it is not until the baby gets older that he begins to take on the opinions of other people. Go back to your childlike ways of thinking when it pertains to following your dreams. No, you won't know how you are going to make everything happen. However, when you begin to take action and move in faith, things will begin to materialize in your life! I read a quote recently that said, "Who were you before the world told you who you are?" Write the answer to that question down in your journal.
2. They don't have the right information.
Most dreams die inside of people simply because they don't have the right information. In order to accomplish things you've never done before, you have to get new information. The life you live now is based off of the information you currently have. You have to invest your time, money, and energy into the things you want to accomplish. Life is similar to school. In school, in order to get to the next grade, there are new things you have to learn. In life, there is different information that you need to learn in order to advance you to the next level.
3. They fear the unknown.
Where you are right now in your life was once unfamiliar ground. You haven't always been where you are now, but you got used to it and it became normal and common ground for you. The same will happen with the next level of living for you as well. More often than not, people wait for the fear to leave their body not realizing that most great things that have been accomplished have been done by people who chose to do what they did despite the fear they were feeling. So put your fear in your purse (make sure it's a cute one), and get on to accomplishing your dreams!
Many are called but only a few will go. Will you be the one to go?
