Could it be true that there is a group of people keeping you from success? I can assure you that it’s true. Now, you may be thinking that I’m referring to your competition, your spouse, or maybe even your parents. Hang on to your seat because the only person I’m actually referring to is YOU.

Seriously, put some thought into this, you hold yourself back in all areas of your life and business. You do this in multiple ways which is why it’s like there’s a small army against you.

Here’s who is holding you back:

YOU: When you focus on the problem instead of the solution.

YOU: When you put a limit on what you think you’re capable of without attempting to put it to the test.

YOU: When you create excuses instead of creating change.

YOU: When you wait for things to be perfect before acting on an idea.

YOU: When you focus on the reasons why something won’t work instead of the reasons why it might.

YOU: When you surround yourself with negative people instead of achievers.

YOU: When you mistake a temporary setback as permanent failure.

YOU: When you focus more on fear instead of gratitude.

YOU: When you worry about what other people think failing to realize they aren’t thinking about you at all.

YOU: When you think the path to success involves more planning than action.

YOU: When you think you don’t have the power to change.

YOU: When you think that circumstances and other people are responsible for your success.

Sound at all familiar?

The bad news is that you’re holding yourself back. The good news is that it’s entirely in your control to change. I’ve always found relief when I’m the problem because it’s easier to fix myself than something out of my control.

The solution to your self-sabotage is to spend more time working on yourself. In fact, every high achiever I’ve ever known spent more time working on themselves than their business or goals.

The more YOU improve, the more your life improves.
