Get out of your own way!
Updated: Jun 11, 2018
How many times have you heard someone tell you to get out of your own way? I used to hear it all of the time. It finally dawned on me that I was my biggest stumbling block. I couldn't move forward because I wouldn't allow myself to. Every time a took a few steps forward, I found myself taking more steps backwards; only to find out that I was sabotaging my own efforts out of fear. If you can't seem to move forward, take a look at what is really holding you back. I realized that it was the fear of completing the task that caused me to subconsciously destroy every effort I put forward.
If someone else was describing to you your own actions, what positive advice would you give them? Now take that same advice and give it to yourself. I started this process a few years ago and have seen major improvements in my progress. I’m not saying that it will be easy, but if you work at it you will be able to overcome a lot of the negative actions and thoughts that are keeping you from reaching your goals. This blog is a prime example of overcoming one of my fears.
I have been working on this idea for quite some time and have been putting it off because I told myself that no one wanted to hear what I had to say. That may be true, but what if I’m wrong? What if I say something or share something that can change a life, bring a smile or give someone hope, then it is worth it. What if I get out of my own way and put forth the effort and just see where it goes? I’m not losing anything by trying, so I decided to take my own advice and start the blog. I hope that you get something from it, even if it’s just a smile, then I will have accomplished my goal. So, I say to you, get out of your own way and see what can happens.
