Obstacles vs Outcomes

September 21, 2020 Eileen 0Comment

How often do we get stuck focused on the Obstacles in our path to a goal?

  • We know where we want to go.
  • We know what steps we need to take to get there.
  • Maybe we even create a plan!
  • We feel positive and motivated and energised.

Then …

all the Obstacles are activated.

They invade our thoughts.

They impair our actions.

They grow and multiply and cripple us.

They overwhelm us.

They fool us into believing that our goal is impossible.
It’s not worth the effort and the hassle.
We’ll be better off abandoning the idea and staying small.

What Happened?

Our focus shifted from the Outcome to the Obstacles.

Outcomes are the delicious results of our efforts to reach our goals

When the going gets tough, and the Obstacles jump up and down and scream for your attention, keep imagining your Outcomes.

The more you do this, the quieter the Obstacles become.

Doors begin to open where you only saw walls.

Pick your goal and try it out!.
