What is holding you back?

I have reflected on that statement several times and thought how fitting to send it to you and ask the next question so what is holding you back?

The truth is that for most of us, when we are told that we cannot do this or that or that something simply won't work, we tend to believe those words and give up. But for those creative, innovative and imaginative few who choose to continue on their journey because they believe that their life has limitless boundaries, they actually become successful. Too often we fall into the trap of doubt, worry and lack because we have been conditioned to believe that success is not for us. Either we are not talented enough or smart enough or we lack the funding to complete the project.

If we can however, change our attitude and perception and move out of our comfort zone, we will be amazed at the miraculous moments that will arrive for us.

Life most definitely has its challenges and undoubtedly we will experience various stumbling blocks yet if we maintain a positive outlook, keep the mantra going that says: I can and will get through this difficult moment because I am an achiever" you will do it! It most certainly takes courage to push through your difficulties. It most certainly takes discipline to work through and get to the other side and it most certainly takes creativity to achieve the goals that you aspire towards.

courage stoneThe only person who can hold you back is yourself! All those negative thoughts that haunt your mind and sabotage your work ethics are getting in the way of you fulfilling your dream. Today, I want you to begin to develop new habits and a new story for yourself that state I have the talent, the resources and the nerve to push through the old limiting beliefs and create the tomorrow that I have always wanted. One of the first steps for you to take is: Cultivate new positive thoughts that will support your goal. Repeat over and over again and say out loud your beliefs. Trust that you are not alone but supported by the Universal Order. Have faith and a strong sense of hope that what you are seeking is also seeking you. Without a shadow of a doubt, you must and I emphasize ���must' think positive, speak positive and live a positive lifestyle that reflects your beliefs.

Then you are in the right environment, mentally, physically and emotionally to receive all that heart and soul have been seeking.
