Are You Living Your Dream? Why Not?

How do you clear the obstacles that are preventing you from moving forward in life? What is stopping you from achieving success?  

Identifying the roadblocks that are inhibiting your progress is key.  Some roadblocks may include lack of motivation and/or negative self-talk or beliefs that restrict you. These may include thoughts of fear, guilt or being unworthy of success.  Negative thoughts create self-doubt and confusion; you think one way and feel another. Tools such as; self help books, life coaches and mentors are excellent resources in guiding you to get a clear vision of what you really want in your life. They can help you uncover what’s holding you back from achieving your vision for yourself and to take action steps to achieve your vision by supporting you; as well as keeping you accountable and motivated.

Many people want to achieve success in life, but what is ‘success’?  Success by definition is ‘the accomplishment of an aim or purpose”. Research shows that it’s necessary to have a clear vision of your goals and aspirations in order to accomplish them. Once you have identified your goals; staying focused and motivated is key to your success.

Everyone struggles in his or her efforts to stay motivated; even the most successful people lose their motivation. Here are some suggestions to help you stay motivate:  

Re-adjust your focus

  • What are you currently focusing on that’s determining how you feel and affecting your motivation?
  • How can you readjust your focus this week? 

Grab a pen and notepad and write down the names of three people in whose presence you come alive—whose words inspire your faith and confidence?

  • What was the last thing each of these people said to you that meant so much, and how can those words motivate you today?

Identify environments and activities that unlock energy and creativity. 

Remember… Be positive. Always believe that you will achieve your goal. As soon as you stop believing, you have already failed.


"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal."

-         Henry Ford, 1863-1947, Founder of Ford Motor Company
