Do you lose sleep trying to figure out How To Break Through Your Success Barriers?
There are always barriers to your success.
You know… fears that keep you from trying, or self-esteem issues that make you doubt your abilities.
It’s imperative to break though these success barriers if you are going to build a profitable online business.
Let’s break it down into some simple things that can help get you over the hump.
Define Your Version Of Success
The first thing is to define exactly what success means to you.
To many people, success means earning a certain amount of money.
For some, it means financial freedom.
And for others, it means being able to do something that they love.
So before you see what you need to do to be successful, make sure you know exactly what success means to you.
Give your vision very clear definition.
What would you be doing with your life 6 months from now that you’re not doing now in order to consider yourself successful?
Identify The Barriers You Have Encountered So Far
Now that you know what it feels like to be successful, ask yourself what barriers you have encountered that have prevented you from becoming successful.
- Are there certain fears that you have when you try to reach your goals?
- Are there learning curves that you find difficult?
- Are there financial limitations that you think are holding you back?
- Do you feel that you don’t have enough money to invest in your success?
There are always barriers to reaching your goals.
What are the main barriers to success that you’ve encountered?
Name them and identify them.
List them so you can see them in front of you.
Knowing the obstacles you must overcome will help you to overcome them, and break through all the barriers to your success.
Why Haven’t You Broken Through The Barriers Yet?
Having identified the key barriers to your success, the question becomes… why haven’t you broken through them yet?
- If you know that you have to learn certain things, then why haven’t you learned them?
- If you know the strategies that you must use to reach success, why haven’t you employed them?
- If you know the steps you must take in order to reach your goals, then why have you not yet taken them?
Knowing what you must do is a good start.
Knowing why you are not doing them is critical to understanding how to break through the barriers to your success .
Acknowledge Your Emotions
If you’ve been experiencing failure for some time now, then you know that failure is accompanied by some deep underlying emotional experiences.
Knowing what goals you want to achieve without being able to achieve them drains your enthusiasm and confidence.
When you do this repeatedly, you become accustom to failure.
The barriers to your success become almost impossible to overcome, not so much because of the things you cannot do, but because of the emotions that block you at every turn.
You become fearful each time you start something new.
You are filled with doubt and trepidation.
You could be so accustomed to failing that…
it becomes nearly impossible for you to actually do the things you need to do to attain success.
Take a moment to write down some of the emotions that you feel when it comes time to taking on a new challenge.
I’m not asking you to identify what you need to do, but how you feel about knowing you need to do it.
Acknowledging those feelings make you aware of the fact that they will be there as you undertake your mission to attain success.
Recognizing those emotions will help you to reject and turn away from them.
Make Your Success Plan
So what will it take for you to be successful?
If you want to get 100 subscribers to your email list in the next 30 days… what actions must you undertake?
Make a plan.
It’s not good enough to say you want 100 subscribers.
You must also have a plan for getting them.
Write down your success plan.
I always find that when people write down their plans, they are far more likely to be able to stick to them.
Things that are a simply stored away in the back of your mind are easily dismissed when it comes to taking action on them.
Write them down.
Give them a time schedule and a deadline.
Making them real and visible in this way, gives concrete substance to your commitment to achieving your goals.
When it comes to actually implementing your plan… you just have to do it.
this is the point at which so many people fail.
- They know what they have to do.
- They plan on doing it.
- Their intentions are good.
when it comes time to doing it…
they get tied up in emotional knots that cut off their ability to move forward.
There’s no way around this.
to sit down roll up your sleeves and actually do what you have to do.
Implement everything on your success plan action list…
every single day.
When you implement the action steps that are required for your success, every single day… then you are telling yourself that you are serious about breaking through the barriers to your success.
Not only that, but you are actually taking the steps required to get you past those barriers.
Being successful is not about doing everything right or doing everything good.
First and foremost, it is just about doing them.
So don’t beat yourself up over the quality of what you do.
Just make sure that you stick to a predetermined quantity of getting things done on a daily basis.
That way you will get in the habit of implementing rather than habitually succumbing to those emotions that keep you from doing the things that will ultimately bring you success.
Take Action To Break Through Your Success Barriers
Failure often comes from not knowing what to do or not knowing how to do it.
It derives from not having enough education or training.
It can be the result of not having enough money to invest in the things you need to make things happen.
people fail because they simply do not take the actions that they need to in order to succeed.
If you find yourself in a cold sweat every time you need to sit down and get yourself focused and on task, then you are succumbing to your emotions.
These emotional blocks are the biggest barriers to your success.
Your breakthrough will come when you ignore those emotions, devalue and marginalize them.
Just keep taking the daily actions that steer you in the right direction.
There simply is no substitute for action.
Trying to find that mythical substitute is the greatest and most formidable barrier to your success.
Know your fears and shortcomings.
Then put them behind you, stick to your action plan, and you will be able to break through all the barriers to your success.
