Are You Unconsciously Sabotaging Your Success?

Are you are getting up every morning and doing the same things day after day and wondering why you aren’t getting anywhere?

What I have to say may surprise you.

What is it you admire most about truly successful people?

They have a presence that is so vibrant; you can spot them from a mile away. They are well groomed, well dressed and comfortable in any situation. They have an energy that fills the room and the power to get things done. When they speak, people listen. You only need to be in their presence a short time to know why they are respected and admired.

Just the kind of person you would love to be someday, right?

 The only difference between you and them is that they did not wait for someday.

So many people tell me they would like to take better care of themselves, but now is not a very good time. They always have some outside thing that has to happen first before they could even think about taking care of their personal needs.

Sound familiar?

You know you are pushing yourself beyond your limits, but you’ve been told that’s the price you have to pay if you want to make it to the top. You tell yourself the only reason successful people can exercise, eat well and always be at their best is because they have money, power and lots of help. You promise yourself when you make it to the top, you will do all those things too.

In the mean time, you need to skip meals or grab some greasy spoon, work until you can’t think, and survive on little to no sleep. The result is not a pretty picture.

 You have permanent dark circles under your eyes. You’re tired, cranky and short tempered so you often don’t handle situations the way you wish you could. The junk food is doing a number on your waistline and your clothes are not fitting very well. You don’t want to buy anything new until you lose a few pounds so you just keep stuffing yourself into the same old clothes. You’re covering up your roots until you can make it to your hairdresser. When you look in the mirror, you don’t like what you see.

 It is not the picture of success.

 I will tell you a secret all highly successful people already know.

 You are the most valuable asset you have.

You need to protect that asset in every way you can. Read the stories of the people you admire most and you will learn that they made themselves a priority long before they had the money, the power and the help. That is why they reached the top. They set themselves apart from the pack. You just had to look at them to know they were a force to be reckoned with.

Interestingly enough, It’s not as hard as you think. We get frightened of change because we believe it means we need to radically alter everything in our life all at once. I can tell you from experience that never works.

 Taking small steps that you know you can do and building on those successes will create the change you long for.
