“History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heart-breaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.” — B. C. Forbes
Who you want be? a Victim or a Victorious? a Complainer or a Change maker?
Every time you come across an obstacle you always have two choices. It’s up to you what you choose.
The choice one makes will differentiate the top 20% from the bottom 80%.
That’s the reason there are only handful of people who succeed and the rest blame the destiny, luck, god, spouse and the list goes on.
In this blog, I will reveal few common obstacles that may come your way as you embark journey towards your DREAM GOAL and simple solutions you may adapt to go past those obstacles and succeed.
Some tough truths coming on your face. Hope you are fine with it 😊
Because you need to succeed and live your DREAM!
1. I am always busy; I don’t have time!
How much time do you spend on social media, WhatsApp or Netflix?
This obstacle has a lot to do with the endless distractions which you may have on a day to day basis. Your cell phone notifications, too much time on social media, your unorganized life - physical space, digital space or emotional space etc.
You and Elon Musk or Narayana Murthy have same 24 hrs in a day. Why Elon Musk was able to build multiple business empires? Why Narayana Murthy was able to build India’s leading software company?
Because they were clear on their GOAL; they were less distracted; they went past every obstacles and committed themselves to reach the goal whatever it takes; they invested their time every day to upskill themselves to go closer towards that goal
What Should I Do? – You can only multiply your time and results by eliminating all the unnecessary things from your life. The tasks which do not contribute to reach your goal and the things which do not have highest value in your life.
Get strong. Make those tough calls. Learn to say NO to a 100 things and YES to the few things which are aligned with your goals. Deliver what matter to you most and delegate the rest.
2. Lack of Money
I have heard many people saying that if I had money I would have done this, that and all.
Sorry to say this but it is absolute bull***t.
Even the Dhirubhai Ambani did not have money when he started! And there are many such successful and rich people who started even when their bank balance was NIL.
Important thing here is what are you going to do in spite of not having it.
The root cause of money problems is your mindset. Your misunderstanding about money.
It’s the intent of the individual which determines the effect of money.
Your reason for not having enough money could also be due to not developing a valuable skill to monetize.
What Should I Do? – Stop complaining. Take accountability. Invest in your learning. Take calculated risks.
Raise your financial thermostat by listening to the “strangest secret in the world” daily twice. When you fix your mindset about money, it will flow into your life with more ease. Start giving in charity consistently. It will create unbelievable flow. Remember, We Reap What We Sow.
3. I Don’t Have Right Skills
Come on ... You are not going to launch satellite in to space 😊
I am not technical, I am too young /old, I am a male / female and all other tags you put on yourself is just an excuse so that you can escape.
Sorry for being little harsh!
But that’s the truth.
The deep rooted issue what I can see here is your unwillingness to learn.
If you put your mind to it, you can develop any skill. This is just an internal programming that needs to be fixed.
The Dream Business Blueprint has some stuffs which you might not have done in the past.
But if simply follow the steps what I teach, even 70+ years grandma can do it.
That’s why I have developed systematic Dream Setup Challenge.
What Should I Do? Get rid of those tags and stop calling yourself with those excuses. Say that you are an expert in technology or any other skill for that matter. And you will be surprised on how fast you will break through your own inhibitions.
Any skills can be developed if you are persistent and committed.
4. I am poor at Sales
If you are able to get married to someone, that’s the toughest sales pitch in the world 😉
If you are able to convince your parents to buy something for you, that’s nothing but sales. That’s it 😃
Rather, you worry about getting your product or service the world class.
Does Apple worry about Sales? People will be waiting overnight in long Q to get the IPHONES. Because of their world class product.
When you believe in your product then selling will be a form of service. Because the product will change the lives of the people.
Do you have fear of rejection or don’t believe in your product, then you fix them.
What Should I Do? Build a world class product. Believe that this product will impact millions of lives for better. And transfer those emotions to your audience while selling. Follow my webinar sales template. Sales will automatically happen. It will be your form of service to the world.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible for you so that you conquer those obstacles which are stopping you from reaching your GOAL.
Only thing for you to do is “Drive On The Road”.
It’s different when you are sitting in the dugout and watch the race.
But the real deal is when you are under the wheel.
As long as you are in the race, you will score.
Nothing worthwhile comes easy. Anything you get easily won’t be worthwhile!
Hence, I want to let you know that obstacles are part and parcel of life.
Successful people look at a problem and see opportunity. Either you will win or learn.
So stop complaining (if ever you have been doing so), and start taking action.
Let me know how do you plan to solve it – based on the above points.
I want to read your solutions in your own words.
I believe you can overcome any obstacle.
Wishing you all the best for hitting your goals.
More power to you,
