The Number One Way to Overcome Your Most Challenging Obstacles


Are you highly ambitious and full of amazing idea's but you always seem to get distracted by all of the noise around you? Do you constantly find yourself dreaming of the life you can have but you can't seem to implement your plan? Have you started pursuing your goals but now you find yourself struggling to stay motivated and to complete what you started? Well, I have good news for you! I've have struggled with all of the above at one point or another and the key to overcoming your challenge is simple. Take action!

This Principle of Taking Action

This is so simple yet it gets overlooked very often. It makes sense to us logically, but for some reason, there is something that stops us from doing it. We tell ourselves "it's not the right time, we don't have enough money, or life is just too busy?" and before we know it a year has gone by and we're still in the same position, struggling to crush our goals and feeling defeated. Am I right?

Here's the truth. 91% of people will not achieve their goals and it's because they refuse to take action. They allow their excuses to dictate their decision. They allow their current circumstances to determine what kind of future they will have. Ultimately, they allow what was meant to be a temporary situation to become their permanent destination because they refuse to take responsibility for their life and do something about it.

They refuse to stop complaining about what they don't have instead of getting creative to find a solution. They refuse to budget and manage the resources they have access to instead of choosing to minimize its potential benefits. They waste their time wishing for things they don't have instead of working with what they do have. Do you see the difference? What kind of person do you aspire to be? The complainer or the go-getter? The person who finds excuses or the person who creates solutions?

My friend, your situation may be tough and your concerns are valid but think about the long-term consequences of not starting right now with what you have! You'll be stuck in the dead-end job that you hate, you will continue to struggle living pay cheque to pay cheque, you will keep on feeling like a victim of your circumstances, and you will keep dreaming of one day making an impact, one day building your business, one day increasing your income while others in the same situation as you are able to get it done now.

What Is Your Excuse?

Do you feel like you don't know where to start when it comes to achieving your goals? Do you feel lost and confused about the entire process? Do you think it will require too much work? Are you too busy? Are you afraid of failure/success? What is your excuse for not getting started today?

I remember just a few years ago my excuses were just like yours. I was too tired. I thought my goals would require too much work and deep down I didn't think I was smart enough or capable of producing the results that I wanted. I thought I needed help, you know, more training, more books, more information, a mentor, some experience, every and anything I could get. I was stuck living in fear.

All of my excuses were rooted in negative what-if scenarios like "what if it doesn't work. I need a plan b." I didn't know it at the time but the voice of fear was stronger than my desire to take action. Before you can start seeing results with any of your goals you have to address the root of why you haven't gotten started yet.

Here's An Exercise That Can Help You Uncover Your Root:
Write down these statements on a piece of paper and finish the sentence.

I am procrastinating because...
Example: I am procrastinating because I don't think I'm smart enough to succeed.

Then write your reason for procrastination and break it down even further:
Example:  I don't think I'm smart enough to succeed because I've never done this before

Continue to break it down:
I've never done this before because I need someone to help me get started.

Continue to break it down:
I need someone to help me to get started because I'm afraid of failing.

Root:
Fear of failure

Your answers can be broken down into many branches. To get the most out of this exercise write down everything that comes to mind and don't try to filter yourself. Many things that will come up won't feel natural to you and you might wonder "where is this thought coming from?" but write it down anyway! It will help you to get to the root of why you haven't started taking action. It's deeper than just because you don't feel like it or life is too busy. There is a root issue that is hindering your progress that you can begin to address with this exercise.

How to Turn Your Goals Into Reality

It's simple. Stop dreaming and start doing. Listen, I know how easy it is to go from reading one book to the next without applying one single concept from the first book. I know how easy it is to get caught up in seminars and training sessions without processing any of the ideas or strategies that have the potential to massively change my life and/or business if I was only willing to apply it! Trust me, I was just like you!

Now a few short years later, I have a blog that has about 800 readers a month (stats below), I run a successful online coaching business that helps people to achieve their biggest goals, I sell online courses, and I'll be launching a podcast on June 17th which is my birthday! Wooooou!



How was I able to do any of this? By becoming a woman of action! In my online course How to Turn Your Goals Into Reality I walk you through the exact steps that I go through to crush every one of my goals even to this day! If you need help creating realistic goals I created a free workbook that you can download to start getting clear on exactly what you want and how you can achieve it.

When it comes to living your dreams I believe wholeheartedly that you should stop at nothing to make it happen. There is absolutely nothing in this world that can stop you from overcoming your obstacles and making the most of your time here on earth. Every challenge you are currently facing is meant to develop your character, help you to think creatively, and turn you into a resourceful goal crushing beast!

Before you can crush your goals this year you have to decide that you are a person of action and then begin to take action! Believing. praying, declaring, envisioning and everything else that you do will not produce your goals in a tangible way. You have to get out there and do things that you've never done before. Make strategic investments in things that will take you closer to your goals. Get help from people who have succeeded in what you want to do and start applying the knowledge you already have. Then and only then will you be able to see you life progree over the next few months.

Success doesn't happen overnight but if you consistently take steps toward it you will be closer than you are now. Until next time, your girl
