What’s Blocking Your Success

March 7, 2011

Have you ever wanted to do something well and work really hard at it only for it to turn out so-so? Have you looked at what might have been in the way? What was stopping it from really taking off and being a 100% knock-out success? Much of the time, it’s our own selves, or a part of us that’s in our own way.

Have you ever had two things you wanted to do that couldn’t happen in the same time-space? This is a prime example of what I mentioned in the previous paragraph. They can cancel each other out so to speak.

Picture a hot air balloon tethered to the ground with a rope. The balloon is one desire and the rope is the other desire. Until the rope is untied or severed, the hot air balloon can’t take off.

Or a game of Tug o’War – you have two teams, each one symbolizing each of your desires. But neither side is stronger than the other so the game goes on and on until one team lets go of the rope. That’s you letting go of one of those things to go for the one that matters the most – the one that will have the biggest impact.

The question then becomes, “If I can’t have both, then which one is it?” Eeny Meeny Miney Moe… That just doesn’t seem appropriate in some cases, but in others like where to go to dinner tonight or what location is it for the summer vacation this year that kind of picking might be okay. But for something major, perhaps you need to look deeper than which tiger you caught by the toe.

The answer for the deeper desires comes from within. When you look at the time/money/energy you’ve already invested in one or the other and how it makes you feel when you think about it. When you then look at and feel what comes up for you when you ask yourself, “What is it that I really want?” “What is the outcome of having this going to do/provide?” “Are there negative repercussions along with positive benefits of having this? What are could they be and are they worth having it anyway?” <— That’s a way to look at pros and cons on a deeper level.

Make a list and answer these questions for yourself. You’re the only one who can really say what’s true for you.
