Overcome Obstacles by Removing Self-Doubt

Overcome Obstacles by Removing Self-Doubt

People doubt themselves and their abilities. When it becomes a chronic situation, it can hold people back from getting what they want. Confidence will break through the barriers caused by obstacles.

You need to recognize when an obstacle is holding you back. Sometimes, people make excuses for their situations and pretend like they don’t exist. For instance, you could be faced with a family member who has a substance abuse problem. It’s difficult to approach the person and people ignore that a problem exists. They just keep pretending as if the person does not have a problem with the hope that the situation will resolve itself.

However, the person may be crying out for help and is looking for someone who has the courage to stand up to their addiction. If you are in that position, you may want to find ways to find that strength. The addict may resist you and may do so for some time. But, if they know you care and you keep at it to confront the situation, they do hear it deep down, especially if they really are looking to get help. You do have to be aware if they don’t want help, your efforts will not amount to much, unfortunately.

Self-doubt can also cripple you when others don’t have confidence in you. For instance, if your manager has reasons to doubt your abilities, he is constantly going to be harping on at you about your work. This may cause you to doubt yourself and the situation will continue in a nasty loop. In such cases, you need to find out why he feels this way and try to work with him to help figure out what you can do to alleviate the situation. Just having this meeting can show your manager you have confidence which could be the catalyst to turn around the situation.

Confidence is going to be your greatest ally when trying to overcome self-doubt. This isn’t easy for everyone to come to grips with and it does take courage. But, once you gain the confidence, you will find there is no stopping you. Dealing with most obstacles will become easier for you which will lead to you succeeding more often. Many people find that after they get past a certain situation, they wondered why it took them as long as it did. It doesn’t matter, though. As long as you eventually gain that confidence, you can make happen whatever you need to.

Self Help Part 4

Keep Going When The Going Gets Tough

“Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.”– William Feather

A short and sweet message for you today…Does it feel like you are just barely hanging on to the dream that you have been working towards? Do you sometimes feel like giving up is your only option?

REMEMBER that no matter how hard things get, you always have to power to choose to keep going. Yes it may get difficult or even downright frustrating,but just hold on one day at a time.Focus on something you can do today that helps you stay focused on your dream and gives you the power to hold on. Before you know it, things will take a major turn for the positive and you will wonder why you ever doubted yourself in the first place.

Produce Value To Increase Your Worth

“Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing useful service.” — Henry Ford

Whatever vocation you have chosen for yourself,one of the main goals we all have is to earn an income.To some people, income is more important than it is to others. The bottom line is that we all need an income to survive in the world today and our desire for material wealth is a healthy desire to have. However, we have to remember, at all times, that the amount of money we earn will always come in direct proportion to the quality and quantity of useful service we provide.Make sure that you can get your heart into your work. Make sure that you care about the peoplewho are on the receiving end of whatever it is you produce.

The higher the quality and usefulness, the more value you are creating. And with more value creation will naturally follow a greater income…either directly through your business or indirectly through the positive reputation and future projects you are assigned with.

Why Decision Making Is Key

“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.” — Tony Robbins

Decision making is one of the most important skills you will ever acquire in your lifetime. I’m talking about the kind of decisions that change your destiny.Some people make decisions only to change their mind a few minutes, hours or days later.The most successful people make decisions based on very specific goals and visions and COMMIT to those decisions 100%… no excuses. This kind of decision making can change lives in a split second.

On the flip side, if you remain undecided about an important event in your life, you are left in a state of ambivalence. You can become fearful and begin to question yourself. Any decision is better than no decision at all.Take one opportunity today, before you go to bed, to make a committed decision for your life. A decision that you have been putting off that YOU KNOW will make a world of difference. A decision that, when you look back in 3,6,9 or 12 months, you say WOW… glad I did that 🙂

You Get What You Expect

“Whatever we expect, with confidence, becomes our own self-fulfillinf prophecy.” — Brian Tracy

What kind of expectations do you have about life on a day to day basis?Do you expect to get stuck in traffic or doyou expect a smooth, relaxing drive to work?Do you expect to have an argument with your spouse or do you expect a positive, meaningful conversation based on love and respect?

Do you expect your next project to be frustrating and difficult or do you expect a fun challenge with a rewarding conclusion?The answers to these questions will tell you a lot about yourself. They will also tell you about the kind of experiences you are attracting into your life.

Do your very best, this ENTIRE day, to ONLY expect the events and circumstances that you most desire. When something inevitably happens that was unexpected, just flip it around and expect the next step in your day to work out THAT MUCH better. Observe what happens to your attitude and your energy throughout the day. I guarantee you will be amazed with the results.

Keeping Your Enthusiasm

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” — Winston Churchill

They say that enthusiasm is contagious and I’m sure you would agree this is true. The more enthusiasm you bring to any and every thing you do will ultimately determine the quality of your day to day experience.The challenge is maintaining your enthusiasm when things don’t go as planned. And if you are anything like me, you try a lot of ideas out and many of them don’t go as you envision.When this happens, how do you stay motivated and enthused?

Use today to practice the following 2 steps as a way to keep your enthusiasm and energy levels high… even when things don’t go according to plan.Don’t take life so seriously. Remember to have fun. Remember no one is perfect, this includes you and remember that enjoying yourself is priority #1.Think about all of the good things in your life. Even though things may be going wrong, or you have what appears to be a “failure” on your hands, you still have plenty of wins in your life time. Focus on these and get excited that you have had so many successes!

 

 

 

 

Obstacles from Lack of Education

If you don’t have a certain skill and are looking to get into a certain field, it becomes an immediate obstacle to getting your foot into that industry. It’s something that holds a lot of people back from realizing their dreams. Today, there are more opportunities than ever, to get the needed training and you don’t necessarily need to go to college to get it.

By some measures, ten thousand baby boomers are retiring each day. What this means for those still in the workforce is companies are left with a gap in resources. These resources need to be filled. In the past, if you didn’t have the skills to fill that gap, you were stuck, because there were plenty of people that could step up with the right skills. But, with the mass exodus of one large group of people, companies are less stringent about strict college requirements. If they aren’t now, they soon will be.

It’s a matter of common sense and economics. If you have a shortage of skills, you are going to be more lenient in who you find. This means that you can train yourself and approach companies to present your new skills. You won’t need a degree nor will you need much experience.

You may have to start out at a lower salary while they are training you. But, when you get the needed training and some experience under your belt, you will be in a better position to negotiate. It is possible the company training you will require you to stay for a predetermined amount of time. You will need to decide if this is acceptable to you. Remember, it’s about getting your foot in the door.

As far as where to find the training, believe it or not, you can start with YouTube. They have many training videos that can give you some beginning advice and instruction. When you go through some training, then you can step up your efforts and look for more advanced instruction. At this point, it’s a good idea to get on some mailing lists related to the field you are trying to break into. Involve yourself in forums as this is a good way to get familiar with the influential people in your field. Consider starting a blog related to this new field so you can add credibility to your efforts. Maintaining a blog shows you are serious about committing to the field.

What is dropshipping?

In e-commerce, there’s been a lot of talk about dropshipping. Dropshipping is the process of selling a physical product to a customer without carrying inventory or shipping the product. However, unlike affiliate marketing, you get to set your own product prices.

This saves businesses money as they only purchase products after a customer has purchased them from their store. Also, it let’s new store owners test out products to determine which are the clear winners.Since you don’t carry the inventory you won’t need to pay for warehouse fees, shipping costs, and expensive employee salaries.

Dropshipping is considered a low-risk business model making it great for new entrepreneurs.Ready to start your first dropshipping business?

Is Your Age an Obstacle?

Kids spend a good part of their childhood wanting to be older. They are proud of reaching certain milestones like age 10 and then age 16, etc. Parents try to encourage them not to rush their lives as they know life goes much quicker and seemingly so the older you get.

And there is an obstacle for people who are under 25. It’s harder to get a loan without someone cosigning, and insurance on automobiles is quite expensive for this age group. Rental car companies usually don’t even rent to them until they reach 25 years of age.

But, eventually, they reach the age where they don’t have restrictions anymore. That is until they start approaching their 50’s. It seems companies don’t want to hang onto these aging employees. This is because they can find someone younger for much cheaper. While companies are not supposed to discriminate based on age, it’s quite easy to find other reasons not to hire these people.

This is narrow-minded on the part of companies. Many of these aging employees hold years of experience and knowledge. While generally, their younger counterparts are cheaper, it will take them years to gain the experience and knowledge of the older employees. Managers who only look at the bottom line and don’t take these other factors into account are short sighted.

Another problem is people are living longer and many are not willing to retire at age 65, or whatever limit is set by governments. They have a lot to offer and they like the challenge of working. It is supposedly healthier for their minds to keep active as well.

Some companies will offer early retirement packages to people of a certain age. While these packages are not as lucrative as they used to be, it is still generally a wise idea to take them when offered. If you don’t it is likely you will be cut eventually anyway, with no package to rely on. In many instances, this early retirement policy causes gaps in the business and they end up hiring the same employees back as consultants. This may seem like a waste but it’s important to remember that consultants don’t add to the headcount and can be let go at a moment’s notice.

One solution is to keep on a group of aging employees as trainers. They have much to offer in the way of knowledge transfer and they can be a great benefit to the company when new hires are added to the payroll.

Self Help Part.3

Expressing Your True Self

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”– Dr. Seuss

Do you ever feel like you have to mask or disguise the “true you”? I’m talking about feeling completely comfortable in your own skin and accepting yourself for all of your strengths AND weaknesses.It can be very difficult to express our true selves.There is so much pressure to conform to the expectations of others, to not appear foolish, to do things that will impress other people.

This quote from Dr. Seuss is one of my all time favorites because it reminds us of one of the most important aspects of life… BE YOURSELF. This means showing your true colors in all situations. It meansacting wild and crazy even when others look at you funny. It means calling someone out when they need to be called out and being prepared for the ramifications.There is no truer sense of freedom then when you can 100% express yourself, your opinions and your true feelings. Make today all about sticking to who you are and letting the world see it!

Acting In Spite Of Fear

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do” — Eleanor Roosevelt

People generally fall into one of two categories when it comes to fear. They either acknowledge and face their fears or they deny and hide from their fears.The people in the first category are people who truly understand growth and how to get the most out of life.They see each fear as an opportunity to transform their life and reach new levels of success and consciousness.The people in the second category often resort to living a huge chunk of their life doing things that they hate. A crappy career, bad relationships, poor health and so on. They are unwilling to address key fears that are holding them back.

You are a category one person. I know this because you are reading this message right now. My goal today is to remind you of this discussion. Perhaps you have been hiding from some of your fears.Maybe you are currently being held back from a personal breakthrough because you are scared.Make today all about committing to the breakthrough DESPITE any level of fear. Focus on the gain and the positive outcome. You can do this.

Working On Your Passions

“If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it.” — Wanda Sykes

Wishing and dreaming versus action and implementation. That is one of the key distinctions behind this program you are going through now.Many people who do personal growth programs simply stop at the dreaming phase. They think about their passions, their ideas to change the world, to improve their lives and then they read another book about motivation.

You are different. You understand that dreamers and doers are different people. You can strengthen your habit of being a “doer” each and every day by the actions you take. My challenge to you is simple. Before you go to bed tonight, take 1 bold action in the direction of your major passions. Whether it is working on a new business plan, a new charity, an event you want to run, a trip you want to take.. do it!

Then, starting tomorrow, you do it again and you commit to doing it for the rest of your life. Why? Because it is your passion and this is what you were born to do. When will there be a better time?

Overcoming Obstacles

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” — Booker T. Washington

Every successful person that you can find has overcome enormous odds and obstacles. In fact, there would absolutely no inspiration in the stories of successful people without it. You are no doubt facing a mountain of obstacles in your life right now. New challenges show their faces almost daily. The obstacles tend to grow in proportion to the size of your goals.

If you have a massive life goal you are working towards then you are likely facing massive obstacles. The people around you very likely don’t have as big of a goal as you… so you may feel alone throughout this process.

Take some time today to research and learn about people who are like you. Successful people who have overcome major obstacles on their road to victory. Remind yourself that if they can do it, you can do it. This is the winning attitude that will take you to the heights you are dreaming of today.

Making Changes For Your Own Happiness

“No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.” — Barbara de Angelis

True happiness eludes many people in our world today. In fact, if you look around you, it ismuch easier to find people who are depressed, lonely, frustrated, scared or complacent. They have lost their zest for life.What’s worse is they have forgotten about the basic truth contained in today’s quote. THEY are the ones in control of their happiness (or lack of it)

Each and every one of us contains the amazing power to change our life at any time we decide todo so. We have to constantly take an inventory of what is working and what is not working. What areas of your life have you been neglecting? Can you identify some areas that require improvement? My guess is that you can if you are honest with yourself. Use today as a day to exercise your true power. Make a major change today that you know you have been putting off. Whether it is confronting someone who is making you unhappy, confronting a habit that is harming your health or maybe even changing the way you treat the important people in your life. Whatever it is, you have the power to make it better… so use that power.

 

 

Failure as an Obstacle

People hate to fail. It associates them with losing which makes them believe they are losers. Society doesn’t look favorably on losers. When failure does happen, people tend to give up too easily instead of using the experience as a way to learn and grow.

We are going to face many obstacles that will knock us down. Some of them will be small obstacles while others will be more severe. We set up blocks within our psyche that prevents us from overcoming these obstacles, no matter what they are.

Some obstacles may require professional help. For instance, if you have lost a limb, you may need physical therapy to get used to life without that limb. If you are using an artificial limb, you will need therapy to become familiar with living with that new limb.

If it is a traumatic experience, it could affect your mental capacity. In such cases, you may need to seek a counselor or psychiatrist to help you deal with the situation you face. Many feel it’s better to get help as soon as the traumatic experience occurs as it will be easier to come to grips with it. Although, it is possible to get help at any point in time.

When your failure isn’t severe (where you’ll need some extra help), you need to reach within yourself and recognize failure for what it is, a learning experience. Read profiles of most influential people, and you will find they have all failed multiple times. The difference is they kept going and did not let those failures deter them.

You need to believe in yourself and what you are doing. When that happens, you will become unstoppable. For example, suppose you have been thinking about creating a business based on something you are good at. You know that you can make it work and also know that others will be receptive to the idea when you do. As long as you keep your focus on that belief, you will do what it takes to make it work. It won’t matter how many failures happen. Your belief system is in place, and you will analyze your failures to see how you can make changes.

People who have a strong belief will get others on board as well. Suppose, for instance, your spouse is hesitant about your new venture. If you show how strong your belief in the concept is, your spouse will likely come around to supporting you over time.

Self Help Part.2

Why Taking Risk Is A MUST

“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.”– John F. Kennedy

Some people view life as a set of choices with varying degrees of risk. They then make choicesbased on risk mitigation rather than potential gains.The truth of the matter is, if you want to make the most of your life and really experience everything you truly desire, you have no choice but to RISK.

This means taking risks despite fear. Taking risks despite being uncomfortable. If the end goal isimportant enough, the uncomfortable risk can be handled and managed.BUT you must find the end goal that is worthy of this sort of undertaking.

Use today to focus on those powerful goals and the powerful (and likely “risky”) actions that you can be taking to advance towards those goals.Focus on the win and accept the risk as the price you pay for the dream. Will it be worth it? You better believe it.

The Law Of Vibration — You Get What You Put Out

“Since you get more joy out of giving to others,you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

Most people are aware of the physical laws of our universe including vibration. You get what you put out!I want to challenge you today. Make your entire focus about exuding the energy that you want to attract into your life.

If you want laughter and happiness, CREATE IT through your actions. If you want compassion, go out and be compassionate to the people around you. If you want to be understood, be understanding of other people. Look at their lives and put yourself in their shoes.

Give away what you want today and pay very close attention as to how this attitude acts like a mirror.You will be amazed at the results you begin to produce.

Responding, Rather Than Reaction, To The Obstacles In Life

“Health, happiness and success depend upon the fighting spirit of each person. The big thing is not what happens to us in life – but what we do about what happens to us.” — George Allen

Life happens. Good things happen and bad things happen. They happen to everyone and seemingly in a totally random set of events and circumstances.We can argue about why these things happen and what causes certain events to take place but the fact remains…

We can choose to react to life. Or we can choose to respond to life.When you react you do so from a primitive mindset of self preservation and it usually translates to something negative. We think thoughts like “OF COURSE this HAD to happen to me.”

When you respond to life, you can be more proactive. You can look at even the most negative event and search for the hidden opportunity. You can remind yourself that most successful people found success out of problems and struggles. Maybe this moment is

YOUR BIG OPPORTUNITY?

When things don’t go to plan today, remember this and immediately hunt for that opportunity.

Exercise Your Persistence Muscles

“Persistence is to the character of a man as carbon is to steel.” — Napoleon Hill

Character.

How would you define your personal character? How would others definite your personal character? Persistence is really all about faith and belief.If you are working on big plans for your life, there is a very good chance that you are going to face obstacle after obstacle.

There isn’t really some magic event where suddenly all obstacles get removed and life gets easy. Life IS persistence and your ability to persist will ultimately define who you are.How strong is your own self belief and faith? Could it be stronger? Use today to think about your life in ways that will only strengthen your persistence muscles and drive you forward towards those big goals and dreams that you have been envisioning.

Make Today A Confidence Boosting Day

“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won before you have started.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero

Confidence is such an important component to personal success and happiness. It is also extremely volatile and unless we know how to summon our confidence, we can become shy, timid and inactive.Even the most confident people in the world like pro athletes can have their confidence shattered in a single moment. Their entire performance falls apart when this happens.

There is no magic pill that you can take to suddenly become confident but you can certainly make a habit of practicing your confidence.Use today as a “confidence boosting day”. Write down everything you are good at. Think about all of the wins you have experienced in your life. Big or small it doesn’t matter. Feed your mind with “confidence fuel”.

Convince yourself that you are DAMN good and experience the true feelings of confidence as it permeates through you. Now, imagine if you made this a daily practice. Your confidence would surpass anything you have experienced before. Make today your “confidence” day!

 

 

 

 

Dealing With Obstacles

Could You Imagine Life Without Obstacles?

Suppose you are given a choice to live a life without any obstacles? Would you take that if it were possible? You may be tempted to jump at the chance. However, it is likely it would not measure up to your expectations.

Several years ago, one television program focused on only good news. It looked for good news in the local community and even in other places. The show did not last because people seem to be more drawn to bad news.

Our minds are hardwired to solve problems. When problems don’t exist, our minds become idle and we become bored with our situations. Therefore, subconsciously, we welcome obstacles so that we can figure out how to overcome or solve them.

Just think about an obstacle course. Why do these even exist? If we weren’t so inclined to solve problems, these never would have become popular. But, we still participate in them because of the challenge involved.

When we get past some obstacle, we get a feeling of elation, which increases in proportion to how extreme the obstacle. Getting past the obstacle may be instant or involve some time. It could be mental or physical, or both. It doesn’t matter. Whatever the situation, we welcome the challenge.

Some people will withdraw when faced with certain obstacles. They feel as though the obstacles are beyond their ability to solve them. This is unfortunate because we all have the capability of solving most situations. Even when the obstacles are dire, people who approach it in a positive manner will have a much greater chance of overcoming them. What is certain is if you don’t try, you will fail and that obstacle will become part of you in a negative way. It could destroy your life if you let it.

Obstacles are a part of life and as you have seen from this article, are necessary for our survival. They may be difficult to come to terms with. However, when we get to the point of overcoming them, we have tools we can use to make our lives better. This can extend to helping others as well.

Think about all this the next time you are faced with a difficult situation. It can make the difference in getting past the problem and you will become stronger in the process. You will also show others that you can deal with adverse situations.
