What’s Stopping You From Being Successful?

What’s Stopping You From Being Successful?

What’s stopping you from being successful? Why are you procrastinating? Have you lost your passion, are you afraid that you might just succeed, or are you just plain afraid and don’t know where to start?

All of these questions and feelings I’ve heard in my head Confused man scratching head and have felt the same way several times whenever I began thinking about starting my own home business or just entertaining the thought of what I can do next in life. It seems to be the natural thing to happen when you are approaching something new and you’re not in control of the unknown.

Truth be told, we live in a world of self-generating beliefs which go untested. We have been influenced so long that we adopt those beliefs because they are based past conclusions and experiences.

What’s Stopping You?

You’re a baby boomer are you where you want to be with your health, wealth, or your relationships? Have you suddenly found yourself in your 50’s or 60’s and wondered where the time has gone and you feel like you’re in a rut?

Our abilities to achieve the results that we say we truly desire is eroded by our personal feelings that say:

  • Our beliefs are the gospel truth
  • The truth is obvious
  • Our beliefs are based on real data
  • The data we select are the real data

You have to develop a new mindset in order to be productive in your new business endeavor.

 Why I Wasn’t Successful

Not too long ago my life changed when I was stricken by my first asthma attack. It was at this point that I was taken out of the life that I had loved and had to take a huge step backwards to get back in the game. Truth be told, I never really got back in the game. At the age of 60, my health and family are the foremost things important to me now.

I had a pretty decent job, two cars, a home and I just wasn’t happy at that place in my life. While I was down recuperating, a friend gave me several books to read. Every book I read seemed to speak to me. My friend knew I would read anything written by a successful veteran so he gave me a book called Rich Dad Poor Dad. It was at this time that I had an inside out view of my life and the ugly rat race I had been in.

Turning around

The one thing that I’ve learned was I had accepted my situation and began to improvise and make do with my life. I wasn’t happy at all, I needed to get motivated, restore and rebuild my confidence, and I developed a hunger to be….

  •  Successful
  • The best me I could be
  • Unique and to understand that I am the best at being me

Thankfully, over the next few months and years, I have that fire I once had only it is hotter than ever. I have begun achieving success again and my faith in me is stronger. I’ve involved myself in creating a community of people like me who are from all walks of life that are reaching for success also. Go to the sign up form to the right and join me!
