Hi mam, in the inside of me I sense greatness, so many great thoughts fill my mind, but I don’t accomplish any. I start things but face difficulties in finishing them. Please I’m writing you with tears in my eyes. I really want to come out from where I am now and make my life better. Mam please I need your help.
Thank you, Casey, for your question. This is an important question. I am sure that many people can relate.
So, why can’t you achieve your goals? Why can’t you accomplish anything in life?
There are 4 possible reasons for this:
- You have other priorities in life
You have a lot of things to worry about in your life. You have lots of responsibilities. So, when it comes to your personal goals and desires, you simple don’t have enough energy and time for them.
If this resonates with you, then my advice to you is:
Create a wish list. You have to refocus your brain from your everyday problems and shift your awareness towards your goals. When you create your wish list, just by writing down your goals on a paper, you will gain some clarity. In your everyday life, when you worry too much about other people, when you are overwhelmed by your daily problems, you don’t even have time to think about your goals.
This exercise, developing a habit of writing down you goals on a piece of paper will help you to shift your priorities in life. Little by little, step by step, you will start focusing more on your own feelings and on your own desires.
To learn more about this method, watch my free webinar entitled “How to Make Your Dreams Come True”.
- The 2nd reason, why you can’t accomplish anything in life is because you might have created huge goals and your brain doesn’t know where to start
If your goal is to buy a Ferrari and at the moment you don’t even have a car, because you can’t afford one, then your brain will simply ignore this goal. You can’t jump from kindergarten to university. You have to finish a lot of school in between, meaning you have to take small steps to achieve big goals.
Again, watch my free webinar “How to make your dreams come true”. There are specific rules for how to create your goals. One those rules is to break down big goals into smaller pieces and to be specific.
- The 3rd reason why you can’t accomplish anything in life is hidden in your childhood.
Perhaps, when you were little, you parents never supported you. Perhaps they were not allowing you to try new things. Perhaps your parents criticized you a lot. You are used to living in an environment where nobody believes in you. Now you don’t believe in yourself. Now you have self-doubts. Now you are giving up easily at the first sign of difficulty.
If you want to achieve your goals, you have to overcome your fears. The bigger the goal, the grater the challenge. You will make mistakes. You will learn from your mistakes and do better next time. This is the path to success. You have to know that adversity is a normal thing in life. The bigger the goal, the more difficult it will be to achieve it.
I won’t lie to you. I want you to know the truth. If somebody tells you that it’s easy to become a millionaire, then you will expect it to be easy. Of course, you will be discouraged when you face a hard time.
I want you to know that feelings of fear, self-doubt, and other difficulties are normal in life.
When you were little, your parents prohibited you from having things that you wanted and from doing what you wanted. Now, you are prohibiting yourself. Now, you are not allowing yourself to be happy and successful in life.
You have to give yourself the Internal Permission for Success. You have to calm down your Inner Critic. You have to shift your focus from things that you cannot do to things that you CAN do.
In my online course “Program Yourself for Success”, I talk about how to give yourself permission to be successful in life. We work on this topic for 3 weeks because this is extremely important.
- The 4th reason why you can’t accomplish anything in life is ALSO hidden in your childhood.
If you never saw examples of people around you achieving their goals, then this might be another reason why you can’t accomplish anything in life.
If your father and mother never pursued their own dreams, if you parents always did what other people or society expected from them, if your parents never accomplished their goals, then probably, you copied their values and beliefs and now you can’t achieve your own goals in life.
You need to reprogram your brain for success. You need to work on your self-esteem and self-confidence. You have to learn how to overcome your limiting beliefs.
Again, thank you very much Casey for your question. I hope that in this article I helped to guide you in the right direction.
