10 Things Holding You Back From Success & Wealth

Have you ever started working on a dream or a project full of energy, only to drop or forget about it a few weeks later? I know I have.

You’ve worked hard your entire life. You’ve been the model employee, always putting in the extra effort to get ahead. But for some reason, you can’t seem to get ahead.

You can’t seem to break through to the next level, no matter how hard you try. You’re starting to feel like there’s something holding you back from success and wealth. But you can’t quite put your finger on it.

Is it your lack of education? Is it your work ethic? Is it something else entirely? It could be any number of things, but you’re determined to find out and then you’ll take action.

10 Things that are holding you back

  1. Alcohol
  2. Self-doubt / Fear
  3. No Schedule / Routine
  4. Social Media
  5. Video Games
  6. Not enough physical exercise
  7. Poor diet
  8. Toxic friends
  9. Procrastination
  10. No challenges

You already knew this

Did you have your “aha!” or “damn…” moment?

I bet you already knew all these things. Deep down you KNEW what you’re doing wrong, and now you’ve confirmed it for yourself.

  • Yes, I live too unhealthy
  • Yes, I have wrong habits and bad friends
  • Yes, I have no productive routine
  • Yes, I spend too much time pointlessly scrolling through Instagram
  • Yes, I get distracted too much by TV & video games

You KNOW this! You now want to find a way to overcome these things that are holding you back and you’ll finally reach the success and wealth you’ve been chasing your whole life. But what are you going to do about it?

Your solution

I wrote an article about possible solutions to these issues, you can read it here:

However… if you already know the problems, then it should be easy to do something about it, no?

Recognizing, REALIZING AND accepting that you have problems, is the first step to overcoming them.

  1. Alcohol –> drink more water
  2. Self-doubt / Fear –> use positive self
  3. No Schedule / Routine –> Get a planner
  4. Social Media –> Set times to turn it off
  5. Video Games –> Do something else instead
  6. Not enough physical exercise –> Go to Gym
  7. Poor diet –> Eat healthy
  8. Toxic friends –> cut ties
  9. Procrastination –> set yourself deadlines
  10. No challenges –> set yourself goals

I know it’s not easy do this. But change is never easy .

Make your choices.
