The only thing holding you back is YOU

November 10th, 2008

It’s true.

Really You can do what YOU want.

But chances are it’s you holding yourself back?

Your saying no it’s not Ben, it’s this and this.  A lot will say time.  A lot will say money.

Stop making excuses.  You can make time.  Start with 5 minutes a day.  Work up to 60 minutes.

Look at how you can reduce the time for other tasks, do you really need to do so and so.

Believe me you can find enough time to start doing what you really love.

Secondly money, it can be a barrier, but its not infallible.

For under $100 you can:

  • Write a book via self publishing
  • Drive your favourite super car
  • Learn how to fly a plane 
  • Start your own online tv show

The barriers to virtually everything are getting destroyed, the chances for excuses are getting less and less.

If there is something you really want to do it, bite the bullet and jump in the deep end, do not let yourself or others talk you out of it.

    Thanks 🙂 Well timed for me…

    I’m so with you – I think we must have some weird subconscious connection as this is right where I’m at!

    I believe that underneath all the excuses is fear – fear of failure, fear of what other people will say/think, fear of rejection and sometimes even fear of success.

    Fear is just emotion. It’s not real.

    Living in fear doesn’t achieve anything – other than being small – being less than you’re really capable of.

    So thank you Ben – thank you for making me think and do!

    The first step is the always hardest part.

    If you can get past the fear, you can do amazing things.

    @Matt your right, once you make that leap, doors open, everyday.

    @Rachel I like your thinking. Fear is a silly excuse to hold yourself back.

    Think about the people you admire? chances are they’ve done something or always doing (keyword action / doing) that you like. Sometimes they fail but you tend to forget that and remember the wins.

    Put yourself out there, you will find others in the same position, and things happen at the speed of light once your there.
