Removing Obstacles to Become Successful
If you were to ask most people if they wanted to be successful, they'd heartily agree. However, if you were to ask the same people how they'd go about becoming successful, most of them would be at a loss of words. The fact is that for most people, the concept of success is like a carrot hanging in front of a trotting horse. You can see it, and at times, it's so close to you that you can almost taste it. However, it's far enough out of reach that you to keep chasing it to no avail.
Using this example, if the horse could figure out that the carrot was simply hanging on a string in front of it, and could figure out how to bite through the string, the horse could have its carrot. If humans could learn to identify that success isn't hard to achieve, many more people would realize that being successful isn't a strange, mysterious or far-away concept. In many cases, success if right in your face. You simply need to identify what the obstacle in your way is that is keeping you from being successful.
What are some of the most common obstacles that get in the way of being successful? The first obstacle is not having a clear view of what success means to you. When most people speak of the concept, they think of having lots of disposable income, or having the career of their dreams. While there are some people who have worked very hard to have lots of disposable income or a dream career, there are also many other people who were born into lots of money, or into a social level that allows them to have lots of fascinating career opportunities. However, many of these people aren't the least bit successful although they have access to lots of money and career opportunities.
Success means lots of different things to different people at different phases of their lives. For some people, being successful could mean surviving a very challenging period of their life, such as military boot camp, health scares or other traumatic events. For some people, being successful means raising healthy and well-adjusted kids in a healthy marriage. Some others would say that they are a success if they raise healthy kids as a single parent. The point is that you have to identify what goals you need to accomplish to be successful. Not only this, but your accomplishments don't have to be on a grand scale.
The second obstacle to becoming successful often is the lack of execution. In other words, you have to make plans to accomplish your goals. Otherwise, you're simply making wishes. You need to determine every step you will need to take to accomplish your goals. Of course, when you accomplish goals, you'll feel accomplished, and confident. You need to begin working on your goals in order to succeed at your goals.
One more obstacle that can get in the way of becoming successful is paying attention to those who tell you something can't be done. The greatest inventions in the world were ideas at one point until someone gave them a try. The greatest athletes in the world were failures until they figured out how to overcome their obstacles to succeed. You could be one more step away from success but you won't know if you give up, or listen to doubters.
