Ever wonder why your life is not where you want it to be? Are you frustrated because you have worked so hard and yet, there is nothing to show for it? Well, it all begins with you.
In my opinion, having passion and knowing what you want for your life play crucial roles in helping you to get there. But perhaps there are some things that you are currently lacking that may be preventing you from reaching your fullest potential and living your best life. I am speaking from my very own personal experience. I have had to learn some very hard lessons along the way.
Below are just some of my thoughts on why you still are not where you want to be in your life:
1. Lack of Planning
You can see your happy and successful future so clearly, but what is missing is a plan on how you will get there. What are you waiting for? Start planning! No one will do that for you. Let’s get to work and implement those plans!
2. Lack of Self Confidence
How can anyone believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself? Your lack of self confidence will prevent you from reaching your goals because fear takes over and you are entertaining it. Don’t allow fear to get in the way.
3. Lack of Focus
Focusing on the wrong things can be unproductive and a time waster. Do you know the top 3 priorities in your life? Write those down and keep them somewhere that you see regularly to keep you on track. If anything or anyone get in the way of those priorities, drop them.
4. Lack of Discipline
We are not born disciplined. To me this is a learned behavior. When we lack discipline, we lack initiative and we lack inner strength. Being a disciplined person takes effort, but it also requires you to train your mind and tell yourself that you are a disciplined person.
5. Lack of guidance and support
You are who you surround yourself with. Who are the people closest to you? Who are the top 5 people you spend most of your time with? Are they on the same life path and purpose as you? I have many friends after 20 years, still struggling in the same life’s challenges. It’s because they surround themselves with people who do not share their path of success and happiness. You are a product of your environment and surroundings. Surround yourself with people who will guide and support your path to reaching your fullest potential and who challenges you to live your best life!
6. Lack of Accountability
When you take responsibility for your life, it puts you at choice. Choose to be in the driver seat instead of just going with the flow or follow along. If you don’t hold yourself accountable, then who will? Drive your life and get to the destination of your dreams! ” It is not what we only do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.” ~John Baptiste Moliere
7. Lack of Faith
How can your dreams come true if you don’t believe that they will? Faith helps you to overcome obstacles that get in the way of success. When we have faith, everything and anything are possible.
8. Lack of Action
This to me is the most important above all else. Without action, there is no result and your dreams cannot come into reality. Talk is cheap without action to follow. Now is the time to start. Stop talking about what you will do and start doing it.
