09 May 10 things holding you back from outrageous success!
Here at The Happiness Institute we're becoming quite fond of the Dumb Little Man's tips for life. They're simple and wonderfully practical. They remind us of the little things we can all do to live happier and better lives. And so it is with great pleasure that we share with you once more one of their recent posts…
If I could show you how you can become an outrageous success, would you be interested?
You see, human beings are naturally happy when everything negative is removed. It’s like trying to hold a beach ball underwater. As soon as you let go, it pops back up to the surface.
So imagine yourself being a success and all that it brings with it. It feels good, doesn’t it? You can have that, and much more, if you would just let go of the things that hold you back.
1. Lack of Vision
The number one thing that holds most people back is lack of vision. You have to get a clear image in your mind's eye about what success means to you. I'm not talking about having tons of money, five cars, and a huge house somewhere expensive.
I'm talking about the life that you truly want to live. Think about how you would feel if you already had all that.
In the end all we want is to feel good now.
2. Negative Expectations
We've been conditioned to talk negatively to ourselves all day long. Some people don't believe in affirmations, but they go around telling themselves that they aren't good enough, that they can't accomplish anything, and that nothing is worth doing.
Try saying those things to yourself right now and see how you feel. Positive expectations will make good things happen.
There's no one to blame. You alone are responsible for not only the business success you have, but also how much you enjoy life right now. Even if someone did something wrong to you in the past, it doesn't mean that you have to be mad at them for the rest of your life.
The only one suffering from you blaming others is you.
4. Negative Beliefs
Everyone has their own set of negative beliefs. Figure out what yours are and start letting them go. There are a lot of ways out there that you can use to let go your negative beliefs.
Many of them work. I personally help people do just this with NLP and sometimes EFT and the results are powerful, but the change starts with you making the decision.
The problem is that most people like their negative beliefs, because they have benefits and feel familiar. They haven't realized that by letting go of these negative beliefs, you can feel even better and become even more successful.
Familiarity holds everyone back, because feeling like you're safe and comfortable is nice, but it ultimately keeps you stuck. And it's nowhere near as nice as when you take action, face your fears, and build a life that you truly desire.
Feeling uncomfortable when you do something new is a part of the game. It's just a sign that you're changing and making progress…
