You know all those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them, or as NIKE says “Just do it”! But what if it seems like there is some unseen or unknown force just simply stopping you? You know it’s there but you can’t see it or put your finger on it. It’s a perceived barrier or a wall that you believe is unbreakable.
These barriers all have to do with our thoughts and emotions. Have you ever heard the quote:
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right” – Henry Ford.
This relates to positive thinking. Pay attention to negative thoughts or what you vocalize such as:
- I can’t
- I won’t
- It’s too hard
- It’ll never happen, etc, etc…
Are these based on reality? How do you know? Try this – take a deep breath by inhaling and exhaling slowly and deeply a few times, ground yourself, dig deep, and consider what thoughts are causing the lack of forward movement in your life. Contemplate these thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts:
- I can
- I will
- I’ll perservere
- This WILL happen…
Let’s face it, you really need to break through that wall or step over that barrier. Consider how badly you want to achieve your goals.
As Tony Robbins says “take massive action toward your goals”.
Perhaps you might consider some minor short term pain for long term gain? Take the first step and then repeat. Repeat again. Soon enough you’ll realize that it’s amazing what you will find on the other side.
Remember that a life coach or a trusted family member or friend can help you start, keep on track, and achieve your goals. So let’s get you on your way to:
