3 Things Stopping You From Achieving Success

When it comes to achieving success there could be many things holding you back. It also comes down to how you measure success but it’s usually based on whether you are achieving our goals or not.

A lot of people have amazing ideas, hopes and dreams but for some reason people don’t commit to fulfilling those goals. They postpone or make excuses as to why “now’s just not the right time”.

Sound familiar?

If so, here are three major road blocks that could be stopping you from achieving success, and how to overcome them.


The fear of being judged by others will stop you from achieving success.

The fear of the unknown can paralyse us from taking action and yet the only thing to cure that fear is to take action!

Every time you don’t go live on Facebook, every time you don’t record the podcast or film the YouTube video, you are postponing the realisation of your dreams.

So even when you’re scared, go live on Facebook, record the podcast, whatever it is that you afraid to do, just do it!

What’s the worst that could happen?

Not Taking Action

If you’re happy and fulfilled in your life, great!

But if you are continuously complaining about not having the things you want, not being inspired or “lucky”, and yet you’re not taking action, then there is a problem.

A lack of productivity or drive towards taking action on your goals is what leads to unrealised ambitions. You need to push yourself outside your comfort zone and take bold, daring action towards the life you aspire to live.

From the moment you have an idea the procrastination and excuses will start. It’s only natural to want to stay in our comfort zone and you’ll tell yourself “it’s not the right time” or “I’ll have to wait until (insert excuse) happens”.

It’s like we’re waiting for an epiphany, a time where all of a sudden the path is clear and you know what you have to do.

The truth is that a lightning bolt of inspiration is not going to hit you and tell you the time is right, because there is no better time to take action than right now.

You need to adopt the habit of taking action. Do your research to validate your idea because the sooner you take action the sooner you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labour.

The time is now!
