Overcoming Obstacles to Your Success

In order to be successful, you have to overcome a great many things. Some of those obstacles are created internally. You can overcome these self-created obstacles with a little hard work and determination. 

No matter what task you're taking on, you can set yourself up for success!
 
Here are some ways to deal with obstacles that may thwart your endeavors:
 
1.    Understand your goals. Know exactly what it is you're trying to do. You can't just run in without a plan of some kind. Take the time to plan out your goals and the steps you intend to take to reach them.
  • Even with an exceptional plan, the reality is that things rarely go exactly as you'd expect. You'll have to stop and make changes at times, and that's okay! Be prepared for the unexpected with ideas on how to handle a situation if it arises.

  • Identify the parts of your plan that may become problematic and lay out alternatives.
2.    Trust yourself. You're in charge of your journey to success. You set your goals and you're the one making it happen, so you must trust yourself. If you truly have a great passion for what you're going to do, then you'll be the best judge of what you want.
  • Follow your instincts. That little voice in the back of your head may very well end up telling you exactly what you need to succeed in your goals.
3.    Get help. If there's something in your way and it's too big of an obstacle for you to remove on your own, get help! You can't do everything by yourself. As humans, we're social beings and we need help from those around us.
  • Get your friends, family or co-workers involved and welcome their input on how to get around an obstacle in your path.This will bring in new ideas and fresh perspectives on the problem in ways you may have never considered.
4.    Gain a fresh perspective. There are times when, no matter how hard you try, things just don't go your way. This is where you need to stop, take a step back, and look at things from a different perspective.
  • You become used to your routine, so the fine details can easily slip past you. Take a break and walk away for a little bit. Change your focus for a time; then come back to the problem and you may see something you missed.
5.    Never ever give up. Nothing has ever been solved or accomplished by giving up. Vince Lombardi said it best: "Winners never quit and quitters never win!" This is as true as it gets.

  • Being too rigid on something can be counterproductive. In order to succeed, we sometimes have to change our approach completely. Keep at the problem until you find a solution. It's there; you just have to find it.
6.    Start again. Sometimes, despite all your efforts, you need to rebuild from the ground up. Maybe one of your fundamental ideas was wrong and had an effect on everything else. This happens, and while it's a setback, it's not the end of your dream.
  • With a little more effort and hard work, you can do it!
Being successful isn't easy and it involves a lot of hard work, dedication and sometimes sacrifices. With these tips, a good plan, and positive people around you to help, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Wealth Insight 2009-08-14 Just because it doesn’t glitter doesn’t mean it isn’t gold! Just the other day I heard of a woman who helped her boss start a new business. She was with him for twenty years, starting from Day 1. She opened up in the morning, she closed up at night. She knew the business better than he did. So he could and did leave most of it in her capable hands while he travelled, enjoyed holidays, etc. There was almost nothing about that business that she did not... Read more...

I have realized that "I" am the key to my destiny.  No one else.   I can do whatever I want to, whenever I want to and with whom ever I want to. There should be nothing that stops me from it or disables me from doing, giving, having and Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-07-24 Confokulation is one of the most popular ways to part people from their money. It depends 100% on ignorance. So to succeed it must first mislead and confuse you. Then it must paralyze you and get you to give up trying to work it out. Then it must persuade you to hand the decision over to someone else who is going to make a lot of money as a result. Confokulation mostly uses fear to get you to hand over your hard earned money.   Fear of missing out.  Fear of... Read more...

My established thoughts have been challenged to look at other possibilities in a way that at times provoked conflict but at the same time it was thoroughly enlightening. Each day’s lesson was eagerly read and thought over with the application of small goals which in itself was a change of the usual habit following routine. Although not a religious course, a challenge to my thinking of religious matters came about many times and I think a whole lot of understanding and simplification... Read more...

I do not know how to start this letter other than: WOW! WOW! WOW! This challenge has taught me things about myself that I never knew existed. I am still a bit star struck and in total awe of what this means to me. My journey started more than a year ago when I Read more...
