What Is Stopping You Being Successful?
Have you noticed how many people spend their lives with their noses pressed up against the window watching others succeed? Have you ever wondered why? Every day they read that anyone can succeed, how easy it is and yet something stands in their way.
So what is stopping you from jumping off the fence and finding success?
For many it is fear. They have been scammed in the past and are now afraid of losing their money again. This held me back for far too long. I told myself ‘if it is on the internet it is a scam’. I know now I was wrong. I am also very grateful I found out I was wrong before I spent my life with my nose pressed up against the window.
Success Starts In Your Head
Many people talk themselves out of success. They tell themselves, ‘I could never do that’ or ‘I’m just not smart enough’ or ‘I just know I will lose my money and fail’. These people are held back by their own head talk. This is actually your self-protection mechanism going to work. Below is a video to help you understand why you do this.
If you start thinking ‘ I’m smart, I can do that and I can succeed’ you have the right attitude to become successful. Success can be anybody’s. All they need is the desire to succeed, the belief that they can succeed and the right training, the ability to stay positive and the determination to keep going when things get tough and the support of those around them.
Successful people know the only time they will fail is when they give up. That is why they succeed. Richard Branson would never have doubted himself or his ability to succeed. Nor did Nelson Mandela and many others who have succeeded against all odds, so why do you?

Your negative thoughts will bind you to failure. It is a trap you set for yourself. It keeps you outside with your nose pressed against the window instead of opening the door and walking inside.
