First off you need to understand what that a lot of you may not like this but once again honesty is always the very best policy. If your circumstances are what is really holding you back then you must identify what the biggest stressors are surrounding your current circumstances. Is it losing your home, losing a job, losing your car,etc. I am sure you get the picture here.
So very often in life, we find ourselves fighting so very hard to keep something from happening that really it can actually end up being a good thing to let it go. In addition way to often we stress and worry about our current circumstances that even a simple solution will evade us. It is like looking off into the distance when the answer is right at our feet, but we do not see it because we are not looking there we are looking off in the distance for the answer. Sometimes we all must just let go of the things we have been fighting so hard to keep, in order to have even greater things in our future.
What I am saying here is let go of this stress, it could be the best thing you will ever do for yourself and your success, and your happiness.
Ever heard the saying “There is light at the end of the tunnel?”
I can promise you from experience that this statement is very true.
What you MUST do for yourself is figure out exactly what that light is and stay focused on it with Intensity!!
What I have found is that the biggest problem with so many people is their lack of being able to have the inner strength to stay focused on the end results because they are so immersed in their current circumstances of the day they are currently stuck in. Now please do not get me wrong here, yes you do need to focus on today’s activities and getting them done, however, you must also remember that your daily activities should also include activities that are moving you closer to your ultimate goal which is “The Light At The End Of The Tunnel.”
Even little baby steps each and every day will move you closer to your big goal.
Many times people get overwhelmed even with their own goals because they focus on the BIG GOAL and forget the fact that getting to the big goal is a series of small baby steps. Think of Michael Jordan, or Tiger Woods, or Lebron James, none of these famous athletes got to be great in basketball or golf without taking small baby steps day after day. They practiced, they had defeats, they all had failures, circumstances occurred in their lives, but they kept on taking those small steps time after time to get to where they are today, and if you get that focus on the light there is no reason why you can not achieve your big goals as well.
You will find that even little steps each and every day will contribute to your big goal.
If you will stay focused on where you are going it will be so much easier for you to deal with your current circumstances.
Wow this is a big one and it is absolutely an essential part too getting you beyond your current circumstances. This will require some work and true soul searching on your part. You must take a close look at everything that you have going on in your life and ask yourself this one simple question…
“Is this moving me toward my goal or is it moving me away from my goal?”
I would write each thing down and then put your answers next to each one.
If it is moving you away from your goal, then you really need to consider getting rid of it.
I have found and I believe this with all my heart, is that some of your greatest breakthroughs come right after your biggest breakdowns.
Sometimes things we are so attached to are really the things that are holding us back.
This is why I said to write everything down along with your answers. You need to do a full-scale evaluation of your current circumstances. I can not stress how important this is. Go line by line through all aspect of your life and get rid of the things weighing you down.
If you take the time and do this and be honest with yourself you will realize that the weight is being lifted from your shoulders is huge.
You will realize that you feel lighter and freer which will allow you to move faster toward the goals you are seeking to achieve.
As I have always said, it may not be what you want to hear but you can count on me being honest with you. Success in business is not easy. It will challenge you, you will have days when you want to pull your hair out, you will have days when you want to quit, but one question you need to ask yourself in these challenging times…
Is it worth it? To answer that question is to look at the alternative answer.
If your end goal is much brighter than the alternative of doing nothing but staying on the path you are currently on, then the answer should be obvious to you.
If you take these 3 tips serious and put them into action then you will find that it is much easier to weather the storms of life and business as well as the circumstances that may have been holding you back from moving forward.
Think of this, when you have a clear picture of where you are going, and you have lightened the load, then getting there is a whole lot easier.
