‘Achieve Your Dreams’
From J.T. DeBolt
” The most dangerous obstacles in life are the
ones you don’t see…and last week, on one of my
podcast episodes, I divulged what I call “The Silent Assassins
I shared only four of them, but they are enough
to get your head on a swivel and your feet in motion.
These are the obstacles that cut people off at the knees on
their way to success.
Here are the 4 Assassins…read and heed:
Assassin #1: Comparing yourself to others.
This is typical of people starting out on the journey to
their own success, but seasoned achievers are susceptible, too.
It’s a byproduct of insecurity and fear, and it always leads to
disaster when it come to getting results. The only person you
should ever compare yourself to is the good-looking specimen
staring you back in the mirror as you brush your teeth everyday.
They’ve been with you from the beginning, and will be with you
until your last breath.
They’re your only competition.
Assassin #2: Making excuses.
No question, this one holds every single person back from
hitting their next level of potential.
Period. Whatever you are striving to accomplish right now, whatever
level of performance you’re at right now, chances are, you’ve sold yourself
on a fantastic excuse as to why you are where you are in life.
And if you’re stuck, you’ve hypnotized yourself into staying stuck.
“Don’t have the money…” is classic. It typically means your dreams
have exceeded your financial comfort zone.
“Don’t have the time..” typically means you have yet to hit the point
where your dream is a big enough priority to commit to it fully.
There’s a host of others, but you get the idea.
Assassin #3: Indecision.
The mark of a true leader is the ability to make decisions and stick to them. When you waffle, you leave people hanging; you lose time, money, assets
and most importantly, the confidence of others in you.
The key is to get proficient at making decisions quickly, and changing
your mind slowly.
Just remember that in business and life, there are only two options:
YES and NO; Maybes are dream-killers.
Assassin #4: Bowing down to fear.
This one goes hand-in-hand with the first three. And it happens to
way too many good, smart, otherwise-qualified-for-success people.
Bowing to fear isn’t always disgusting and shameful.
Sometimes it looks like a hard-fought battle that has ended in
exhaustion and defeat. Sometimes it looks like apathy.
Only you can decide if, when and where you are bowing to defeat.
The only thing that truly matters is that you address it and move on.
And the best antidote to fear is ACTION. Massive. Purposeful.
Here’s the deal: you are likely dealing with
one of these. Or all four. Or more…but either way,
you need a plan to conquer them.
So, what’s your plan? And more importantly, how can you prevent
them from continuing their onslaught against your heard-earned success
in the future?
Most people set goals and hope for the best. But goal-setting sucks…
and hope is a terrible strategy. Instead, get a battle-tested strategy for
success in business and life.
