“Obstacles are only temporary road blocks in the mind”~Dave Kovach
Think about this… You have this incredible opportunity to take first place in a 5k marathon, but the only obstacle that’s preventing this from happening is the thought of “can I really be in first place”?
As you’re half-way to the finish line, for some unknown reason, you start feeling tired, and begin thinking to yourself, well I guess second or third place will be OK. But, what you don’t realize, over the bluff of the hill, there’s only 2 other people ahead of you, approximately 15 to 20 yards.
So, what’s the problem?
The only obstacle that’s preventing them from beating you is?
It’s easy to let obstacles play tricks on your mind, especially during times of doubt.
Remember this… Your mind is very powerful, and if you’re determined to succeed, I don’t care if it’s a 5k marathon, or eating healthier to lose weight. The fact is, if you want it bad enough and never ever let doubt stop what you really want, you’ll always succeed.
Follow these 3 steps for overcoming any obstacles which are hindering you to succeed.
- Be Determined– Truly believe in yourself that you can do it.
- Never Underestimate Yourself– But be truthful and not a phony.
- Never Ever Quit– You don’t always have to come in first place, but give it your best shot, and keep on plugging away until you reach the place where you want to be.
