What’s Really Holding You Back?

Are you aware of the number one reason you are not succeeding?

It’s fear.

More often than not, fear is the underlying cause of lack of motivation, procrastination, and self-doubt. When this is ultimately exposed it can be dealt with properly.

Acknowledge your fear; try and find out where it came from. Maybe someone told you that you couldn’t do it when you were younger. Or you may have tried to do it in the past and didn’t succeed. Well, for whatever reason, you may not have succeeded the first time around but in life, if you want something bad enough, you have to fail many times in order to succeed. There are countless stories about this; Einstein, Jordan, Gates, etc, etc.

So isn’t it about time you deal with it?

Ask yourself what’s the worst thing that can happen if you did what you really wanted to do?

For most people, it may simply be embarrassment or loss of money. If it involves losing something more important, then think of contingency plans, backups to lessen the blow if possible.

Then ask yourself what’s the best thing that can happen if you did what you really wanted to do?

Could being successful at it possibly provide endless opportunities and open doors that you can’t even realize right now? Well, you know that being successful at what you desire would be good for you and those around you, so weigh the difference.

Ultimately, personal satisfaction is good for overall well-being and when others see you overcome your fears it gives them the drive and desire to do the same thing. There is so much value that comes from getting up and deciding to live your life to the best of your abilities.

Do you realize how much fear is costing you? It is robbing you of your future right now because you are making decisions based on fear and not allowing yourself to be stretched out of your comfort zone to reach your full potential.

Life is not about finding a cozy chair to curl up in and watch your favorite show all day long with your bon bons on an end table parked next to you on your days off work.


The best thing you could do for yourself is find something that you are passionate about and make a decision that no matter how many reasons you come up with for not doing it previously, that you are going to do it, let it stretch you and make you grow in spite of your fears. In spite of what you think people may think or what they may say, you have got to start exercising control of your life by attacking your fears and confronting them face to face.

it doesn’t matter whether  you are an internet marketer, a musician, or interior designer. Whatever you genuinely want to do you need to get up and give it a try.

Start as healthy dialogue with yourself by saying affirmations like:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” if you are Christian.

“I am what I say I am and I am a winner!”

“I have the Victory”

“I am a successful internet marketer and I help thousands of people make money online”

Just think of what it is that you want and create a sentence to repeat to yourself daily to energize yourself and get you doing the things that are in line with that sentence.  Place it on an index card on your bedroom or bathroom mirror at read it everyday!


You know deep down inside that you can do much more than you currently are?

You’re not allowing yourself to be challenged because you are caught up in thinking that it’s too much to do. Well, I’ve got news for you my friend it cost too much not to do!

So to recap:

  1. Acknowledge your fear
  2. Ask yourself “what’s the worst that can happen?” Then prepare
  3. Ask yourself, ”what’s the best that can happen?”
  4. Stir yourself up, speak positively to yourself about it. Write it down and keep it before you.

Of course, there are other steps that you can take and add to this, so do it. But this should at least give you a good start. If you are ready to take your life to the next level and share whatever it is you are passionate about to the masses and make money doing it go here;

Wishing you the best!
