I am a firm believer we have more control over our lives than we give ourselves credit for. And maybe we shove credit onto other people or other things because it’s easier for someone or something else to carry they weight of our challenges and problems and not be responsible for any poor outcomes. Heavy talk, I know. My point in all of that is, I think we’re 100% responsible for failures as much as we all for our success.
But occasionally, we do some self sabotaging. For reasons that are beyond me, we get in our own way and have these road blocks that prevent us from taking our selves, our business, our work our hustles to the next level.
So my goal this week and for the rest of August is to figure our what my road blocks, name them and block them! Road block the road blocks. I always think I have it figured out know what my obstacled and yet, im not at the level I wanted to be. I’m not where I used to be, but I could be so much farther.
That’s my goal this week. Figure out and conquer those road blocks. What’s blocking you?
In the words of motivational speaker, Les Brown, “success leaves clues”.
And I believe it. I believe successful people unknowningly left clues to how they became successful. Much of the time it’s persistence and consistent specific actions, but something in the manner of what they did got them to where they are.
And as someone who consistently side hustles, I want to break into the next level of ambitions, so I study the success and clues of others.
Predominantly, women. And one woman in particular, Marie Forleo.
Lately I’ve been listening to her podcast… at work. And I always feel like I end her podcast and little bit confident in what I’m doing even if it hasn’t entirely manifest. She always brings conversation back to creating a life we want to live. Being able to do the kind of work we want to enjoy doing while having as much control over as we desire. And that makes me feel good. Finding successful clues makes me feel good. And when I feel good, I’m able to do more. Like, maintain a level of consistency in efforts that will propel me where I want to be.
I look for successful people to show me to clues they’ve left to help me leap as well.
Whose clues have you found?
