Enemies WithinJanuary 30, 2013 2013-01-30 12:06
“If there is no enemy within, the enemy without can do you no harm” ~ African Proverb
Today, I basically want to share with you two enemies within that may be stopping you from achieving your dreams. Often times, what stops most people are not external but internal. Let’s look at these things.
1. Procrastination: You keep rescheduling what you know you need to do to someday, a better day: a day that may never come.
“He who observes the wind will never sow” There may never be an ideal time, you must discipline yourself to act. Do the things that are necessary for your growth and development.
Resolve to: “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.” ~ Mark Twain
2. Doubt and Unbelief: lack of self-believe, self-confidence is a major barrier, not believing in yourself and what you have to offer. You could be asking yourself “do someone really want to buy from me, learn from me..etc.” This could also be a result of fear; fear of the unknown, even fear of success can be very crippling. Doubts kill creativity!
Many creative individuals are afraid to put their materials out there because they are scared of criticism, rejection and others don’t even have enough courage to do so: unbelief and self-doubt kills their dreams. Do this: Rise up to the challenge and face your fears today!
