Today, I’m going to talk a bit about how you can overcome your self-made obstacles to think more positively about yourself and achieving your goals.
We live in a time where it’s very easy to get discouraged and think that only the wealthy can have opportunity and success. Many people even pay to hop on someone else’s path or join their community just to have hope that a positive future is possible and obtainable for them too. We even talk ourselves out of the very dream we thought up in the first place.
After a lifetime of difficult times you may not know just how to be positive. If not, then you have to learn how to think positively about yourself and your circumstances in order to gain success, and I want to help you achieve that.
If you think you’ll fail, but want to overcome that feeling, write down a list of all the reasons why you think you’ll fail then follow them up with a detailed explanation of how you can overcome them. For example, if you constantly doubt yourself of being capable of starting a business, try filling a jar with notes of positive reinforcement to read at will or surround your work area with reassuring quotes. It’s important to give yourself support in whatever way you feel you need. Both success and failure can come from within you. Which one are you going to let win?
Also, lack of education does not mean you don’t have the knowledge on how to start a business. If you’ve been working in a similar field you want your own business to be but never went to college, doesn’t mean you don’t know what it takes to run your very own. Take the time to write down all your knowledge and thoughts on the industry. You may surprise yourself and figure out you know more than you thought you did.
If you need help expanding your knowledge in certain areas of the industry, or even learning about a new industry entirely, there are plenty of free websites, blogs, articles that you can learn from. Online certificates are also a great route. They can give you the information you need without the college price tag and time commitment.
I believe that our biggest obstacle is ourselves. We need to break out of our own mental jail cell and rip the door off so we don’ t get trapped in there again.
