What stops you in your tracks?
I’m not talking about those big, heavy hitting fears like public speaking, death, or taxes. I mean the daily grind.
The things left undone. Put off. Pushed aside.
We’ve all have them!
Those tasks we don’t do that would catapult us forward like lightening. We hang back.
It could be anything. Finishing that e-book. Learning that critical technical skill. Completing that sales page. Making an all-important phone call.
No matter where we line up in the success parade, there are things that stop us from achieving what we know we are capable of.
It’s a common thread.
Quite frankly, it’s a human dilemma. While I’m not sure about the why part, I do know that to get it done requires taking action and (here’s the kicker) I’m talking taking action when you don’t feel like it.
Reality Check . . .
I don’t know where your comfort zone stops, but you do. Any task that will push you toward your dream and is stopping you is outside that zone. You know it’s true. It’s out there in the scary-with-a-capital-S zone! I know. Even the most simple of tasks, if they hold you back, seem frightening.
What’s scary is that fear associated with it. Guess what? That fear can be divided into two categories: 1) Fear of Failure; or 2) Fear of Success.
The only two choices you get.
Only you know which one it is.
The challenge . . ..
Write down your worst case scenario if you fail and the best case outcome if you succeed.
Which one scares you?
Lest you think I’m going to give you some kind of magic key to unlock the secret of your own success in this blog post, I assure you I’m not. Only you know the answer to why you are holding yourself back.
Success or failure?
It’s all in your hands!
