The Barrier

With business comes the belief barrier.

What does this mean?

We’ve always done what we’ve always done. Our whole lives. The norm becomes the norm. That barrier can be a great habit that motivates and drives you. It can also be the bad habit that ultimately holds you back from accomplishing the success you so covet.

We either make a habit or break a habit. It’s up to you.

The Barrier

Maybe this is the way you grew up. You saw your parents grind. Paycheck to paycheck. Saw them go to work at 8 and come home at 5. Never getting ahead. Not knowing you could change it. This is just the life you knew, so this is the life you know. This is the life your kids will know. Who breaks the cycle? Not saying they, or you, for the most part, aren’t happy. You have to ask yourself right now, as you are reading this: are you as happy as you could be?

What’s the barrier standing in your way and how do you break that cycle?

There is a belief. The belief that you can do more. No matter where you are right now. You can do more, be better, and accomplish those things you want to accomplish. You may want to start a business but don’t know how. Ask for help. You may want a new job that pays you more. Lay out the plan to get there. You may want to make more money. What do you need to do to make that happen?

Break Down the Wall

If you don’t know how to do it, find someone that does. Ask them. Find someone that can help you. Don’t be afraid; don’t be ashamed. It doesn’t have to be a friend. It can be someone you find online. A coach, a third party, a mentor. Someone that you can talk to that will help you break down those belief barriers.

This can be anything; it doesn’t just have to be a business or a job. It can be loving someone, being more patient, having a goal, or challenging yourself. Whatever it is, you can make it happen when you just start putting one foot in front of the other.

The only thing holding you back is you.

The best part about that is you also have the opportunity to change it.

We all have this opportunity. We all have this ability; if we put our minds to it, if we work hard for it, and we put our all into it, good things will happen. That’s what one day at a time means. It’s not going to happen overnight. You won’t get there by hoping, wishing, and wanting. You are only going to get there by doing. So you have to start doing.

That’s when the barrier falls.

If you need help, don’t hesitate to call or email.
