Have you ever said or done something that stopped and discouraged you from taking action toward your goals?
Reasons and undesirable self-talk are common problems and are what usually stops most of us from achieving our dreams. But they aren’t deceptive until we become aware of them. And it’s not until you become responsive of them that you can start to begin changing them to help you move forward.
Here are 12 of the most common explanations people use that stop them from reaching their dreams:
- I’m too old to start.
As long as you’re still living and breathing, you still have all the resources to turn your life around. All it takes is determination and desire.
- I’m not talented enough.
Talent alone isn’t enough to be truly prosperous. It might help you progress faster, but ultimately, all it requires is hard work and dedication to improving.
- I’m not smart enough.
Don’t despair if you feel you lack the knowledge to pursue your goals. There is a good reason why you lack the knowledge—you’re just starting! The key to learning is to start from somewhere and make progress.
- I don’t have the support.
While having the support is beneficial, it will not be the reason for your success and is simply ideal for getting you through hard times. The biggest things that matter in your journey toward success and achievement is your drive and motivation.
- I don’t have enough time to discover what I like.
If you sit down and make a list of all the things you do in a typical day, you’ll begin to realize that you actually have enough time. Figure out what is wasting your time, and replace it with the things that will get you to your goals.
- I don’t know if I will succeed.
The greatest mystery about life is in not knowing what’s going to happen. Sometimes, your journey will take you on roads you never thought existed.
- I’m just not lucky enough.
All of us are lucky all of the time. The difference is, you just don’t see the opportunities presented to you due to lack of preparation. Focus on preparing yourself for them, so when an opportunity comes, you naturally will become luckier.
- I’m not destined to succeed.
Everything that ultimately happens in your life is all due, in part, to the decisions you make. If that’s your current belief about yourself then, chances are, you’re right.
- I’m not motivated enough.
If you lack the drive to do whatever it is you hope to do, there’s a chance you don’t want it badly enough or see it as something you really want.
- I’m not educated enough.
Education isn’t necessarily something you have to learn at school. You can never have enough education to get started. If you’re unsure, just take action anyway and learn along the way. Experience always will be the best educator.
- I can’t handle failure.
If that’s your belief, then it’s a lie. We are rejected every day of our lives, but we fail to see the rejections because we don’t choose to acknowledge them. Learn to detach yourself from outcomes and to see the process as journey of self-discovery.
- I will start tomorrow.
There is no such as a future, only the present. If you genuinely have the time to do something now, then use the opportunity and go and do it. You will feel a lot more energized and motivated, knowing you’ve pushed yourself and made progress.
