There are really only two things that stop people from reaching their goals.
I know that sometimes things get overwhelming, and it can be difficult to keep moving forward when you feel like the whole world is trying to stop you from getting what you want.
But really, it all comes down to two factors that will stop people dead in their tracks almost every single time.
You don’t know.
Probably the biggest road block that people hit when they are trying to build up their income is that they just don’t know what to do. They aren’t sure where to get started, where to find information, or anything. And that can be scary. Fear will shut you down even before you start. Fear is something that turns potential into impossible.
Some people think that those who are rich have an “unfair advantage”…which is true. Why is that true? Because the rich choose to learn how to accomplish things while others do not. The poor will often sit there and complain that they have a disadvantage rather than taking steps to eliminate that disadvantage.
Of course it’s not fair. But we all start out in life without the knowledge of where to get started. The question is: are we going to learn what we need to learn in order to succeed?
Remember that saying “knowledge is power”? Don’t forget it.
You don’t care.
The second thing that will hold you back is actually far worse than the first.
I can’t tell you how many people I have met in my life that have become complacent to the point that they will never, ever get out of whatever situation they are in because they simply do not care enough to do the legwork and learn the steps necessary to become successful.
And frankly, that’s their own fault.
Personally, it sickens me to hear someone complain when they flat-out refuse to do anything about the situation.
Are you stressed out by people you know? Make new friends.
Do you have a crappy boss? Find a new job.
Are you overwhelmed by bills? Get a budget and stick to it.
This stuff is all pretty common sense. Yet there are still people out there that know what they need to do, but just don’t care enough to take action.
Sometimes they don’t know what they need to do, but they still don’t care enough to find out.
Those people have no right to complain.
So…which person are you?
What will you do?
Will you start learning?
Will you step back and look at the big picture and then take action?
…or will you just sit there and wish?
