Who’s Holding You Back?

Did you ever start something you really wanted to do and just stopped doing it?  Maybe it was a diet, working out regularly or spending time for yourself. Hello, yes, all of us! We’ve all given up on something. We usually like to blame ourselves by saying “I can’t do it.” Sometimes we even try to blame other people for our lack of commitment.But what’s actually holding you back from achieving your goals & your dreams?

YOU. YOU ARE.

You read that twice hoping the answer was going to change. It isn’t, I promise.

You are the only person holding you back. We all are. Whether our excuses  reasons were that we didn’t have time or we wanted to do something else, we actually just freaking gave up!

We gave up.

We chose not to make time. We decided other things were more important. We didn’t think we could do it. All of these things stem from one thing, fear.

More specifically:

The Fear of Being Successful

Yes, this is a real thing. If you are actually successful at whatever your heart desires, your life will change. It will be different than it is now. You will have different responsibilities. You won’t have time for other things. People will start to think of you differently. Things will change.

A lot of times we just see the good things, especially with social media. People don’t post their struggles. They don’t post what they’re going through. We have to accept that it is never easy for anyone. Everyone struggles.

It all just takes hard work. Being healthy and fit takes a lot of time at the gym and educating yourself about what you’re eating. Being an artist takes accepting a lot of failure and celebrating your small successes.

It’s not going to happen overnight. Nothing happens overnight, except for slumber parties. There will be a lot of not-so-good times; maybe even some down right hard times. But that is all temporary. As you get closer and closer to achieving whatever it is you desire, you will find your happiness.

It will make you genuinely happy to be successful at a goal you set for yourself. A goal only you can hold yourself accountable for. A goal that you wanted so badly, that at one point you made it a GOAL! That self success is where you will find happiness; doing things for you in ways that are good for your body and your mind. Take care of your vessel, it’s the only one you got!

Oh also, YOU CAN DO IT!

Wishing you Health, Wealth & Happiness,
