What’s the #1 Thing Holding You Back?

Here’s the scenario….

An opportunity comes up for you and your immediate reaction is to DO IT…

AND THEN…

REALITY BITES!

You gut reaction is to do it but your logical mind takes over and starts coming up with every ‘reason’ under the sun as to why you can’t do it…

What ‘reasons’ do you have for not moving forward?

What ‘reasons’ do you have for not taking a leap of faith?

What ‘reasons’ do you have for not following the dream that’s burning deep within your heart…

You know…the one you dream about while you continue to work in a job you really don’t like or live a standard of life that’s just under what you’d truly like?

What ‘reasons’ do you have for saying you can’t do it right now?

What ‘reasons’ do you give for not backing yourself?

What ‘reasons’ do you have for staying in your comfort zone?

YOUR GUT REACTION…THE ONE THAT SAID DO IT…IS YOUR GUIDING LIGHT SHOWING YOU THE WAY TO THE PATH OF YOUR DREAMS

So why didn’t you take it?

Oh…that’s right…all of those REASONS…

You know those REASONS are actually EXCUSES DISGUISED AS REASONS…

Oh, yeah…but…

NOPE!!

No ifs…no buts…

IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH YOU THINK IT’S A REASON IT’S ALWAYS AN EXCUSE

An excuse to keep playing small…

An excuse to stay in your comfort zone…

An excuse that is ultimately holding you back from achieving amazing things…

WHAT’S THE REASON BEHIND THESE EXCUSES?

It’s FEAR…

I had another breakthrough moment late this week. I went to an event to learn more about becoming an international speaker because ultimately…that’s where I’m going to be…

Speaking on the world stage and sharing my message with thousands of people…

The event was amazing and the opportunity it provided was phenomenal…

And it costs THOUSANDS of dollars to take the next step…

Which made me think about the mindset coaching I want to invest in that also costs THOUSANDS of dollars to do…

It triggered me BIG TIME…

It triggered me because it made me realise all of the ‘reasons’ I’ve been holding back…

Those ‘reasons’ that are drummed into you as a child and continue to whisper in your ear…

‘Money doesn’t grow on trees’….blah, blah, blah…

You know the drill…

But here’s the thing…

Whether you do a course or invest in coaching in any way (athletics…fitness…mindset…anything) you’re ultimately investing in yourself…

And when you invest in yourself, the doors open wide for further opportunities to come to you…

And the only reason most people don’t take that HUGE step is because REALITY IS BITING THEM IN THE BUM…

YOU WILL NEVER WASTE MONEY THAT’S SPENT INVESTING IN YOURSELF

I spent the next day huddled in a corner, rocking backwards and forwards doing the ugly cry as I pushed through and finally broke through this self limiting belief…

That it’s time for me to step up and take that leap of faith and start making the choice to invest in myself…BIG TIME…

It’s time to stop playing small…

It’s time to start taking what appear to be ‘risks’…

BECAUSE ULTIMATELY….IT’S SIMPLY A CHOICE…

Today the opportunity came up for me to attend an event in Sydney that focuses on performance, presentation and overcoming fears.

This event has been to Australia several times over the past year or two but each time I held back…

Telling myself I didn’t need to attend while the underlying ‘reason’ was that ‘I couldn’t afford it’…

But today, the announcement came up to say tickets were being released and my immediate gut reaction was that I HAVE TO GO…

So instead of thinking about it, I jumped online to book….but instead of buying the usual cheap arse seat like I usually do, I’ve INVESTED IN MYSELF and I’ll be sitting front row and centre with entry into the VIP area for lunch and the private after party…

There’s also a photo opportunity with the star of the show included as well…

And the whole time I was booking it…

IT FELT GOOOD!

Have you ever noticed that when you do follow your gut feeling you always have the money to do whatever it is that you want to do?

Even if you don’t have it right there, on hand, you somehow magically find it?

STOP LETTING FEAR HOLD YOU BACK

Fears are unrealistic. Yes, they’re there to protect you but when they’re holding you back from achieving the dream that’s burning deep down inside your heart, they’re causing destruction of your soul…

Maybe you have a fear of failure…

Maybe you have a fear of success…

Maybe you’re afraid the money will run out…

Here’s a tip when it comes to money…

You can always make more money…

Successful people have failed more times than you can imagine with many successful people going into hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt before they ultimately cracked the surface of their dream…

BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED PASSIONATELY IN THEIR DREAM AND THEY BELIEVED IN THEMSELVES…THEY NEVER GAVE UP…

Just imagine what your life would be like if you were to wake up every morning and do that thing that you love EVERY. SINGLE. DAY…

Oh…hang on…that’s right…society says you can’t have a career doing what you love…

You must trade your time to earn pitiful amounts of money doing something you don’t like under someone else’s rules and only DREAM about what you’d love to do…

Seriously…what a crock!

STOP OVERTHINKING EVERYTHING!

You can have a career doing what you love…

You can invest in yourself and expand your mind and your soul…

You just need to listen to that gut feeling of yours…

And take a punt on yourself…

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOURSELF AND MAKE IT WORK…

Follow your guiding light…

MAKE THE CHOICE TO DO WHAT SCARES YOU….AT LEAST THEN YOU’LL KNOW YOU’RE ALIVE!!

Every single ‘reason’ you have for not following your heart is an EXCUSE.

END. OF. STORY.

Follow your heart, follow your dreams and don’t let anyone stop you.
