There seems to be point in everyones life when a blockade comes out of no where and is erected from either the mind or outside influences, not to mention it comes at the worst possible time. Most of us will use the old tried and trusteed method of choosing to stay out of the way while it corrects its self, as if the problem will disappear on its own. The down side is this, we never end up dealing with the problem in its entirety.
By this I mean sorting out the root of the problem and working on the outside influences that created it in the first place. I mean lets face it we have all been in the position where we have had the time to sort issues out in our head, plan them, but failed to follow through. There are a number of factors that play into this.
I always had the problem when it came to following through, it was always my biggest obstacle. Conquering this I found to be more on the mental side of the house. When someone practices on an instrument or dance move they progress through the amount of repetitions they have completed. Yes practice makes perfect, but practicing involves repetitively doing something until you have a complete understanding of the basics.
This all starts in the mind by envisioning what it is you want to accomplish. Napoleon Hill says this best in his statement: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve”. Armed with this he is saying your achievements can be brought to life and accomplished before you even say a word. Mind power is the greatest tool we have. Without it where would we be?
Earlier when I brought up “repetition” and how it relates to practice, I left out its sibling named “habit”. Many of us have habits, are they productive or counter productive to our everyday goals? That is for you to decide. What I can say is habits are only formed through the repetition, repetition is achieved from the drive we have.
Drive is created when there is a need, this need in turn makes us respond a physically or emotional way until that need is fulfilled. Wanting something so bad that you will do anything for it make you “driven”. Students in school are driven to make the honor roll or deans list due to the satisfaction they receive, it can be anything from a increase of allowance to being looked at as a potential employee for a prominent company. What ever it is your looking to accomplish, make sure you have an emotional or physical response and the rest will take care of its self.
After you find your drive, “motivation” should be the next thing that builds within you. In order for you or me to get better at something, we have to be motivated to do accomplish it. This comes very close to “drive” as mentioned earlier but this specific involves desire. You have to want to do this. Motivation is when you do something to because on the inside and outside is telling you that you can. You have faith in your self and know anything coming your way you will conquer.
What inspires you to do what it is you love? Is it the weather, conversation with a friend, or maybe you find inspiration when your by your self and alone in your thoughts. There is always room for the underdog, they can never be counted out. Inspiration can be delivered to us in many forms. I was inspired to write about what has helped me overcome barriers by thinking about all that I have been through and this road in life for which I travel.
Looking at a situation in a black or white manner is a part of the past. Everyone is resilient, everyone has the ability to think outside of their current situation. Going into something and getting one result and brushing it off, because you know it has no choice but to be better the second time around is remaining optimistic.
What is encouragement and whee can you find it? Our friends, family and strangers can be the best supports systems for when we need to get through something. A lot of people are strong and independent, I bet even more wished they would have someone there to confide in when they were going through touch times, emotional or financial.
There are many factors that plug into the world when it comes to breaking through barrier’s and overcoming obstacles. I hope me sharing what I’ve used the most of in my life, helps get your through life snd your pursuit of happiness. Go forth and do great things and remember to keep is simple. Until next time.
