I am not perfect but yes, I had been there. Now, I know what are the things that were holding me back.
A problem identified is half-solved. Right?
“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.” ~ Sheryl Sandberg
We all have dreams and we all use this phrase once in our lives “I wish I could“.
But there are many things that stop us from reaching our goals. They divert us from identifying and believing in our potential, which is enormous.
Pin and share-
Things that hold us back
Taking up the Job just for the sake of good money, Quitting the Job just to get a tag Entrepreneur, Choosing a career path just because it is a shortcut etc.
Our wrong choices put us into an oblivion.
Weigh the pros and cons before choosing. Foresee the long-term effects rather than looking at short-term benefits.
Complaining is the worst thing we can do to ourselves.
Rather than always grumbling about what we don’t have, start cherishing and valuing what we have.
Stop comparing your blessing with others. You will never have enough that way.
Lack of belief in our own dreams
First, start believing in our own dreams before expecting others to take you seriously.
Do not doubt your own ideas before you try and test them.
We stop learning
Read more. Listen more. Learn more.
This is what I have always heard from my Mother. Books, Blogs, Vlogs, Podcasts – Choose whatever source you wish to but never let your learning curve stagnate.
Learn something new each day which helps you move closer to your goals, which stacks up to your knowledge rather than diverting you.
We talk less about it
Talk about your dream, each day. Write about it. Share it with others.
Discussing our dreams with others reinforces our determination towards them.
Lack of planning
No goal can be met without proper planning.
Pen down your short-term and long-term goals. Make the strategy and time-bound your goals.
No priorities set
There are so many things on our plate and we cannot tick all of them in the single day.
Setting the priority is a must to avoid overburdening ourselves and shifting our focus in the right direction.
Taking up higher priority things earlier in the day is something we should try to follow.
Fear of Alone
We should not seek someone to help us take the plunge because it’s OUR dream.
No one other than us would be more passionate about it.
Whether it’s about going to the gym, joining a new course or launching something- you need to do it alone.
Take the advice or support, people can offer based on their experiences but do not depend on others for the success of your dream.
Surrounding yourself with uninspired people
Surround yourself with people who inspire you, who helps you look at your hidden potential.
It is only possible when they are themselves inspired and goal oriented.
Win over Distractions
In this Era when you always feel drowned in over-information and social media feeds, it’s easy to get distracted.
You turn on to the internet for something but you end up finding something else.
Controversial conversations, overwhelming pictures, and viral stuff distracts us and we end up wasting our limited time scrolling through these endlessly.
Last but not the least, Start today than never.
It is summarized in my favorite Quote “Day 1 or One day- you decide”
We tend to postpone the things for later. This becomes our habit unless we intentionally break this.
DO SHARE YOUR PERSONAL TIPS and inspire others.
