“Get out of your own way. Often, we are our own worst enemy when working towards our goals.” – Robert T. Kiyosaki
For how long have you been waiting for that thing you always wanted? How much longer are you still going to wait? Well, your time is running out of time, there’s no more time to waste waiting for inspiration, begin and inspiration will find you on your way.
I once came across these words, “Someone once told me the definition of Hell: The last day you have on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.” – Anonymous. These words challenged me and injected more fire and hunger in me to take positive and deliberate action and I hope they do the same for you.
Getting out of your way means that your habits, behaviour, feelings, personal problems, etc. are stopping you from becoming the person you were meant to be. You need to change these things for your life to become better. If something is “in your way” it stops you from moving. Imagine a big, heavy rock in the middle of a street.
Most people wait for the right time, people and situations and are wondering why things are not happening for them. Well, the truth is, you are the one that you have long been waiting for. It’s not the time nor the lack of opportunities that are delaying you but mostly yourself. Your beliefs are affecting your thoughts. Your mindset is not in alignment with the results you want to produce hence you are not producing them.
It’s more like you are facing towards the North and are wondering as to why you’ve never seen the sunrise. Until you face towards the East, you will never see the sunrise because you are facing in the wrong direction. If you want to see the sunset, face towards the Western direction at the write time and voilà, you’ll see the sunset.
Your mindset determines the direction you are facing and is the decider of whether you’ll see the sunrise or sunset meaning whether you’ll get what you want or not. So, work on your mindset instead of just waiting and waiting!!
