June 6, 2016 - Are the odds against you? Have you convinced yourself that you are operating from a disadvantage due to past experiences or because of what you perceive others to have that you do not? Are you doubting your own ability to overcome challenges because they seem insurmountable, or like a constant flow of obstacles that keep getting in your way? If you truly desire to realize success in a particular venture or initiative, the first obstacle you must overcome is your own thinking that could be getting in the way of you moving forward.
Take an MM&I Moment to re-examine what you are trying to accomplish from a more proactive and insightful mindset. List your perceived disadvantages, and then beside them list all that you have already overcome and learned as a result of your past experiences. Then let go of the past, and focus on the present and your future. If you see numerous obstacles ahead that are intimidating you, write why they are intimidating, and what you need to know, or what resources you need to have to begin to overcome them. Then with each item listed, note who you can contact or what steps you can take right now to transform that obstacle into a stepping stone.
