March 27, 2017 – Are you making it harder? Are you caught up in what has happened or is happening, which may be distracting you away from what could be happening? Are you viewing a setback or challenge as a game stopper instead of an opportunity to improve upon or effectively adjust your approach for the better? Are you so focused on weaknesses and threats that you are not effectively leveraging your strengths and opportunities? Are you feeling you must have all the answers in order to progress forward? Whether it is over-thinking situations or circumstances, focusing on what is wrong versus what is right, or not sharing the load in what you are trying to achieve, you may be your greatest nemesis in why it seems so hard to get where you want to go.
Take an MM&I Moment to understand what is really causing you to feel like what you are trying to achieve is harder than you thought it would be. It may be a matter of our own mindset and what you are allowing yourself to feel internally versus what is externally occurring. What could you be doing if you weren't allowing yourself to be distracted by others or situations that are not moving you forward? What are your successes and strengths, which have been instrumental in your accomplishments realized to-date? How can you leverage these talents and past achievements for what you are trying to accomplish now? What answers do you need, and who could help you get these answers, or even join forces with you so it is no longer entirely up to you? Every thought you think can either move you forward or hold you back.
