Don’t Let Others Hold You Back

Have you ever heard that it can’t be done or that will never work? I have and so have you. Whenever we hear that from someone, we have to stop and look at who’s telling us that. What great achievements has he or she accomplished that qualified them to set up limitations for you? Unfortunately, most of us have family or friends that not encouraging and affirming and want to offer advice in areas that they are not qualified to offer advice in. If you wanted to become financially independent, would you take advice from someone that hasn’t already attained it? Would you take advice on building a business from someone that hasn’t built one? What about fitness advice from someone that’s not physically fit?

You will find as you go through life that those who give advice most freely are precisely the individuals who are least qualified to do so. Busy, successful people don’t have an interest in telling you how to live your life. They are busy living their own. Failures or mediocre people have all the time in the world. They also delight in seeing you fail, and are quick to say “I told you so” when you experience a temporary setback. If someone tells you that what you are attempting to achieve is impossible or not worth the effort, take a close look at them and what they have accomplished with their lives. The chances are good that you will find they haven’t done much. Successful people are optimistic and positive people. They’ve built the habit of success because they learned long ago to listen to themselves and not to those who would like to see them fail.

Besides listening to yourself, find someone that is already successful  in the area you want to be successful in and follow their lead. Don’t let others hold you back.

Have an awesome day and be successful.
