10 Blocks To Success

So you’ve tried everything you know of to help you achieve your dream. You’ve watched ‘The Secret’, you’ve read all the self-help books, and done everything they’ve suggested, the visualisations, the affirmations, created a vision board and more, and still you feel no nearer to achieving your desired outcome. Maybe you’re even ready to give up. What more can you do?

It seems to me that there are common themes that recur when we fail to achieve our dreams. Blocks, if you like, that stop us from achieving our goals and which will always prevent our success if we have them. Most of these blocks are subconscious. We may not even know we have them. They just fester away in the back of our minds, undoing all the good work we may do from reading, visualising, affirming etc. Have a read through the list below and ask yourself if any one or more of them may apply to you.

1. Deservability – The number one block we put on ourselves is deservability. We simply don’t believe that we deserve to get whatever it is that we desire. We’re just ‘not good enough’. Self-esteem and confidence come into this category too. If you feel deep down inside, that you haven’t the confidence to pull off whatever you‘re dreaming of, it’ll never happen.

2. Doubt – We don’t believe it can really happen for us. We’re afraid to be disappointed when it all goes wrong (as it usually does.) We doubt not only ourselves, but the Universe too.

3. Expectation – We actually ‘expect’ things to go wrong. We believe that because things haven’t come right for us before, they won’t this time.

4. Belief – Could this really happen for you? Or do good things only happen to others?

5. Safety – Often we block ourselves because we won’t feel ‘safe’ if we achieve our dreams. Who would you be without all that extra weight? Who would you be if you won the lottery? What would be the ‘downside’ of achieving your dream? Fear of success and fear of failure come under this heading too. Think about what you fear most about achieving (or not achieving) your dream. What if you get it and it’s not enough, or it’s not right? What if you don’t get it? Are you holding on too tightly to your dream?

6. Scarcity Programming – This is the belief that there’s not enough to go round. Or that if you have, someone else will have to go without.

7. Family Programming – These are the negative beliefs passed on to you by your family. It’s usually your parents that tell you things like “Money doesn’t grow on trees, you know,” and other choice statements! “We’re not a rich family,” “Success doesn’t come easily to our family,” and other such things we learned as children can easily become the rules by which we subconsciously live our own lives. Of course, our parents couldn’t teach us anything they didn’t believe themselves, so there’s no blame on them, but isn’t it time to start living by your own set of ‘rules’?

8. Upsetting Others – Sometimes we may subconsciously sabotage our dreams for fear of upsetting someone else. Who would be upset if you achieved your dream? Are you trying not to outdo a younger or less able sibling or friend?

9. Asking For Too Much – If we’re asking for something that’s not believable to us, we’re not going to get it. Look at your dream and see if you feel it’s realistic to get there from where you are now. If not, bring your ideas in line with what you feel you can actually achieve.

10. Not really wanting it – This last one’s really important. Sometimes we pursue our dream because it’s what we ‘ought’ to want, or because it’s what we think we want. Check with your heart to see if what you’re asking for is really what you want.

Remember, the Law of Attraction works for us all (no exceptions) so have a good think about the list above and see if any or all of them apply to you. These blocks could be preventing you from achieving the very things you say you want.

So how do we remove these blocks? Sometimes blocks can be dismantled easily by simply acknowledging their presence. Sometimes we have to let them go and release them. You can do this by writing them down, then symbolically burn your paper (somewhere safe, of course!), or you can do this verbally out loud.

For me Emotional Freedom Techniques is the easiest and quickest way to dissolving blocks. It’s easy to do and you can do it by yourself in minutes. You can find out more by checking out EFT on the web. Or visit your local library or bookshop and look for books by the many self-help gurus out there. Whatever method you choose, at least you’ll have a head start if you know what your blocks are.

Whichever way you go, I wish you happy dreaming and may all of your dreams come true!

The Science Of Getting Rich: 7 Principles From Chapter Fifteen

“The Advancing Man”

Deep down, I believe that for most people, becoming all you want to be is one of our ultimate goals. We all want to know that we have made a mark on the world, and that we have truly lived life.

Wattles points out that often, in many professions, especially helping professions like teaching, medicine, and ministry, those involved go about it all wrong. Instead of helping others reach a new level, they simply create more of what they are trying to get rid of.

Teaching breeds more ignorance, medicine brings more disease, and ministry brings more sin. No matter what your profession, these seven principles will help you succeed:

1. Regardless of your profession, if you increase the life of others, you will become rich.

One of the examples Wattles uses is of doctors. The doctor who sets out to cure disease will certainly become rich. Doctors seldom cure the illness, just as often they tend to make it worse. By following the principles of the Science of Getting Rich, doctors cure their patients. This will make them attractive to those who truly want healing.

2. Nowhere else is the Science of Getting Rich needed more than in medicine.

The way medicine is practiced now, it tends to bring even more disease. Drugs don’t really cure anything. More often than not, they tend to mask the symptoms, or simply give the person taking them a little relief.

Doctors need to stop “practicing” and start curing. The focus needs to change from one of disease to one of healing and health. What you focus on brings more of the same.

3. Everyone who follows these instructions to the letter will get rich.

The key here is in focus. If you focus on disease, you invite in more disease. The focus instead should be health and healing.

4. Do your work every day and do it in a successful manner.

Again, it’s about focus. If you’re not focused on taking those steps that will help you become a success, and you’re not doing those things that will help you become a success, you won’t succeed.

If you are in business for yourself, ask yourself every day: “Is the task I am about to do going to contribute to the overall success of my business?” If the answer is no, then you’re wasting your time.

5. Fill your present place with the view of advancing yourself.

Growth is necessary to having what you want in life and becoming what you want to become. If you are currently employed, then it is imperative that you outgrow your job. You must become more than your current job and develop the skills necessary to become what you want to be.

6. The Universe cannot help helping you when you act in the Certain Way.

The universe is made up of certain rules. These rules operate whether we believe in them or not. They work the same way every time.

For example, the “Law of Cause and Effect” says that “for every action there is an equal and corresponding reaction.” This means that every time we take action in a specific way, the outcome will be a certain thing.

If you want to succeed, you need to know the rules. Apply those rules to get the results you want.

7. The first step toward greater opportunity is to be all you want to be when each opportunity presents itself.

We all get presented with new opportunities every day for growth and for achievement, to advance ourselves. It is imperative that you develop the right skills for what you want to do so that when these opportunities come along you may take advantage of them. Commit to growing and developing the skills you need to become what you want to become and do what you want to do. You will succeed.
