What is Stopping You From Fulfilling​ Your Dreams?

Have you ever found yourself envying people who have became successful before you could even step foot into success’ doorway? If so, I will tell you exactly why you are not where you could be and those individuals are right where they should be.

Its all about your mindset and your effort. If no one tells you, I will. Here is why you’re behind on success…


  • Procrastination : 

Be honest, you have set your dreams aside. Your dreams have been calling and you’ve been hitting ignore. Why? Is it because you’re not ready? Or you’re too busy? Don’t use those excuses. Why is it that we can make time for the least important things, but when it comes to important things, as in our dreams and goals, we are too busy? Get rid of the habit of procrastinating and you’ll be able to achieve the things you want to achieve.

  • Fear of Failure :

I came across a quote once that said: “Your largest fear carries your greatest growth.”  You think J.K Rowling quit after she was rejected by 12 publishers before Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone was accepted? Nope! You will fail one, two, or even twelve times. That does not mean that you should stop. It means that you use those failures as stepping stones and you continue to press forward until you get to where you’re going.

  • Lack of Motivation :

When you find yourself lacking motivation, just remember that there are people out there getting ahead of you. Find something that motivates you so much that you can’t wait to get up in the morning. Make sure to schedule your days and separate play-time from work-time. Read this post when you need to spark some motivation.

  • No Visualization :

Can you visualize yourself being successful, honestly? We all can talk about becoming a doctor or becoming an entrepreneur, but can you ACTUALLY see yourself being one of those? Visualization is the key component of being successful. If you can not see yourself in those positions then how do you expect anyone else to be able to picture you being in those positions?

  • No Plan :

Do you have a plan for your dreams? Making plans for your dreams is equivalent to making plans with your family and/or friends. Making plans is to help you become familiar with all the case scenarios of what could possibly happen and how you can work around them. You would never want to go into something blinded. You have to know what you’re getting into and be prepared for what may come.

Have you been chasing your dreams? If not, what is stopping you?
