Do you know that you are your own biggest obstacle? You are your own biggest barrier. Yes, there are people out there who would love to see you fail; truly, there are people close to you who do not want you to succeed as well as they have. But you see, your success does not depend on what they say or think of you. Your success depends on you, and if you believe the negative things they say to deter you. Do they say your dreams are too big? Do they want you to apologize for your talents? Do they list all the impossibilities and obstacles before you?
Here’s the news flash: None of it matters if you don’t believe them! Your biggest obstacle does not lie in the deeds, thoughts or actions of others. It lies in your ability to sieve out their negativity, and silence the voice in your mind that constantly says you can’t do it. Your biggest obstacle lies in the voice in your head that tells you what you are doing does not make sense, or will not be of value to anyone. Your biggest obstacle is you; hence you must conquer yourself! Don’t say stuck in a rut! Positively confess yourself out of it! Conquer yourself by doing the things that scare you the most, by taking the steps that seem uncertain, and by engaging more in what you enjoy.
