Where there's a will, there's a way.
Yes, it's cliche. But it's also true.
If you want something, you want to achieve your goals and dreams, nothing should stand in your way.
However, this isn't always how it works.
We let things stop us. We let obstacles slow us down, or worse, stop us in our tracks. We let problems and other people stop us. And worse, we let our doubts and fears stop us.
If there's anything I've learned over the past couple years, it's that we are our own worst enemies. We use every excuse in the book to slow down or stop our progress. It's almost as if we don't believe we can be successful.
I know I didn't. For a long time.
I let my own self-doubt take over my thoughts and progress. It wasn't the obstacles that stopped me. Or the problems. Or even other people. It was my thoughts and feelings about all of those things.
I didn't believe I was worthy of success. I didn't believe that I could do or be anything I wanted.
And yes, I know how silly it sounds to feel that way about myself, but it's true. I was the only thing standing in my way.
It look a lot of work and a lot of positive thinking and positive talk, and I still have work to do, but I know now that I am worthy of success. I can 100% do or be anything I want. All I have to do is work for it. Set aside my self-doubts and fears. And really, truly work for it!
I won't let obstacles stop me (and believe me, they will try!). I won't let problems stop me (I've had my share of those over the past couple years). And I certainly won't let other people stop me (everyone has an opinion about what you're doing).
The only thing that can stop me is me. And I won't let that happen! Not anymore.
So what self-doubts and fears are stopping you? What excuses are you telling yourself about why you can't achieve your goals? Sometimes speaking them out loud to someone else helps. It gets them off your mind, but also helps you realize what exactly is stopping you from moving forward. And that realization and acknowledgment can make all the different in the world.
I hope you all had a beautiful Easter. Nick was off work (for a change) and we were able to spend time with our family and enjoy a nice Easter surprise.
Have an amazing week! And comment with your self-doubts. I'm willing to bet we all have similar ones!
With love and wellness,
