Let’s assume you already know your God-given purpose and you’re living in line with your core values. Awesome.
To joyfully pursue your most purposeful path, you also need to know which roadblocks could keep you from success!
You must be keenly aware of those potential barriers so you can pro-actively prevent them from blocking your progress.
So what are they — these roadblocks that could cause you and your business to come to a screeching halt?
I’ll share with you three barriers that have tried their darnedest to block my progress over the years.
Low Energy Could Keep You From Success
Tell me if this sounds familiar.
You have tons of creative ideas but lack the stamina you need to implement them. You toss and turn at night then have trouble performing at optimum levels the next day.
- You don’t eat well.
- You don’t exercise regularly.
- You’re tired!!
When it finally dawned on me that I was no longer performing at my best, I hired a Vitality Mentor who guided me to renewed vibrancy and wellness by encouraging me to change my diet and drink more water throughout the day.
I also joined our local Y and made a commitment to attend at least three cardio or strength classes a week.
Just a few changes and that barrier is down!
We’ve got to be pro-active.
Low Self-Esteem Could Keep You From Success
OK. You know what it’s like to be successful.
Perhaps as a mom, a corporate exec, a lawyer. But as a work-from-home entrepreneur? Not so much.
You start to doubt your ability to make a difference AND a profit.
It’s all about mindset and mentoring in my opinion.
You need to transform your limiting beliefs into positive affirmations (and you need a coach or a mentor you admire to help stay the course).
“... Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…” (Romans 12:2)
Only then will you be able to discern and carry out God’s will for your life.
Only then will you be able to achieve success.
Lack of Passion Could Keep You From Success
As entrepreneurs, we’ve got to be excited about our work.
We’re certain to have business-related duties and responsibilities that don’t thrill us. We either need to “outsource” those duties or we need to perform them ourselves with a positive attitude.
The majority of our work, however, must make excellent use of our natural talents and abilities.
The work we do most of the time must be something we enjoy.
Do you enjoy speaking? Speak!
Do you enjoy writing? Write!
Be sure to weave speaking and writing into each week if not each day.
And be sure you speak and write on topics that genuinely interest you.
Makes sense, right?
Don’t let life “just happen” to you. Don’t let your business “just happen” either.
- Surround yourself with like-minded entrepreneurs who want to see you succeed.
- Join a group like Peak Performance!
- Hire a mentor or a coach.
- Work with a business owner who’s “been there.”
It’s incredibly hard to bust through your roadblocks by yourself–whatever they may be.
Your first step is to identify which roadblocks could keep you from success.
Your second step is to tear down each barrier one at a time.
How about you?
- Which roadblocks are keeping you from success?
- What are you doing to tear down those roadblocks once and for all?
