Overcoming Obstacles – Biting Off More Than You Can Chew
Our minds are incredible machines. We are able to process all sorts of stuff. We are good problem solvers.Â Why is it than so many people seem to never reach their goals in life? This is something that I have been thinking about lately.
Overweight people promise themselves every year that they are going to loose weight, but every year that comes by they fail to achieve that victory. Thousands of people come online determined to be successful as online marketers, yet so many people end up walking away disgusted.
So the question that begs asking is how do we change that?
The Importance of Overcoming Obstacles
If you spend your life letting problems hold you back you will never get to the top of the mountain. Even worse is spending your life making excuses why you didn’t achieve what you started out to achieve this will causeÂ you to never realize your dreams.Â Overcoming Obstacles is the only way you will ever truly grow as a person and in your business.Â You should look forward to all the different road blocks that may be in your path each one is a chance for you to become a better you.
Ever notice that if you are alone you only do 80% of what you are capable of doing.Â A good example is a guy in the gym.Â Left to his own devices he will only do what he feels is needed.Â If a beautiful woman walks in all of sudden he is Samson and he is benching 45lbs more than he ever done before.Â I am sure you heard of the stories about mothers who lift cars up to save their pinned babies.Â Why is it we can muster so much courage, strength and genius when feel we absolutely need to , but left on our own we hardly lift a finger? It is this inner substance that is needed for overcoming obstacles.
A Simple Solution To Over Coming Obstacles
While we know when we exercise that we shouldn’t over train , people every year end up injuring themselves from over training, even people that should know better.Â I know that when a person decides to loose weight they start out with good intentions but end up falling short.
The reason is because we only see the end result, we never actually see what is in front of us. Because of this we never actually take the time to take it inch by inch, step by step, one day at a time.Â Tomorrow doesn’t matter, only today does. Don’t make overcoming obstacles harder than it has to be. Many times we make mountains out of molehills.
We have no control over tomorrow, but we do have control of right now!Â If you where forced to hold your child over a cliffÂ and if you let go your child would fall to their death, would that be enough incentive to hold on with every single fiber of your existence?
When one of martial arts students ask me how I find the courage to fight in the face of danger my answer is very simple. I imagine that my little girls life is on the line and the person standing in front of me is going to kill her violently if I don’t stop him.Â That pretty much takes away my fear of the situation.
I have been toldÂ “Larry this online marketing stuff comes easy for you, YOU don’t understand how hard this is for me” That is absolute nonsense every day I am finding out just how little bit I know , but every day I continue to learn and move forward.Â What makes me so special is the fact that I am not so special. I am a average dude just taking it day by day.
You Can Start Overcoming Obstacles Today!
Spend just 5 more minutes every day doing something to further your business along. That is an extra 35 min’s a week.Â That is a whopping 245 minutes a month more than you where doing before.Â At minimum that is a few blog post, an article or two submitted. You could learn how to do seo, the possibilities of what you could do with that extra time are limitless.
My last bit of advice is to create a daily goal journal and each day you accomplish what you have written in your journal mark it off. After a year go back and see how far you have journeyed.
Do you have a hard time overcoming obstacles? What do you do to get past them? In a million years I never thought I would be teaching martial arts and writing in this blog. English and writing where my worst subjects in school.Â Anything is possible if you are willing to believe :).Â Finally overcoming obstacles isn’t a matter of trying, as a wise man once said do or do not.
