Conquering the Roadblocks to Success
This posting identifies four types of roadblocks to success and shows how to conquer them.
This blocking force has been discussed many times in this blog. The main problem with this roadblock is that people aren’t aware of their limiting beliefs and so they don’t take steps to eliminate them.
An easy way to determine if you have limiting beliefs is to study your situation in life. If you aren’t happy with your present situation but aren’t making any effort to improve things, you probably are burdened with limiting beliefs. This is especially the case if you don’t believe that you are entitled to have a better life.
The way to solve this problem is to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. You need to look at the goals you want to accomplish and decide what abilities or attitudes you will need to achieve these goals.
The final step is to implant these empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. You can go to this chapter in my website to review three simple ways of gaining new beliefs.
Failure to face and solve problems
The main reason that people don’t face their problems is that they don’t know how to solve them. I have used two methods to solve my own problems.
One method is to research the Internet or other sources of information to see how other people have solved the same type of problem. If you have access to the Internet, it is the easiest way to search for solutions to the type of problem that you have. You can use the following search term: how do I [describe your goal or problem]? Examples:
- how do I start a small business?
- how do I fix a plumbing problem?
Another method is to train your subconscious mind to help you solve problems. This method was described in my Yes, I Can !! posting. Your subconscious mind has access to an immense storehouse of information. It should be able to help you solve many types of problems.
Failure to take action
Unless you start taking action to get what you want, you will never achieve your objective. You learn new abilities by trial and error. You should expect to make mistakes. As you find out what doesn’t work, you are getting closer to what does work. You can shorten the learning curve by using the same kind of research as used to conquer the above roadblock.
However, the key to overcoming this roadblock is simply to start taking action. Of course, you want to avoid dangerous situations. In addition, you want to start with goals that are easy to achieve. As you gain more experience, you can try to achieve larger goals. Each success at one level paves the way for success at a higher level.
Other common obstacles
There are other common obstacles, such as a habit of procrastination or lack of needed skills. These common obstacles and the methods that can be used to overcome them are discussed in the Overcoming Roadblocks to Action posting.
Now that you know how to eliminate these roadblocks to success, the next step is to decide what you want to accomplish with your life. Then you can start choosing and achieving meaningful goals. Your destiny awaits you, my friend. Good luck with your search for your heart’s desire.
