What’s Stopping You?

 What’s stopping you? 

That was the question asked. It’s fitting for those who are stuck. Those who have dreams, goals, and aspirations yet like a Nested   Sludge, do nothing to progress towards achieving them.

Why do we hesitate? Why don’t we step out and do what needs to be done? What holds us back?

Here I share some of the responses from individuals to the question posed.

  • Fear …period
  • Confidence
  • Not believing in myself
  • Laziness
  • Fear of Failure
  • Fear of the What if’s
  • Judgment of others
  • Not knowing where to start and not having the means
  • Lack of money
  • Fear of failure and having possible regrets
  • Selecting career
  • People
  • Being disappointed
  • Possible rejection
  • Procrastination
  • Platform
  • Capital
  • Double faced people
  • Lack of confidence and confused
  • Discipline
  • Pain and fear
  • Losing people who I love
  • Interacting with people
  • Daily conflicts with people but they are not stopping me just standing in my way
  • Myself
  • Self doubt
  • Lacking purpose
  • Over-thinking, over panning and procrastination
  • Afraid of others opinion
  • My past
  • Sadness
  • Uncommitted to my decisions
  • Fear of future
  • Fear of Success
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Fear of Change
  • Rejection
  • Afraid of standing out
  • Fear of being ridiculed
  • I need to believe in myself
  • Purpose

It seems fear, and pleasing others top the list of what’s stopping most people from doing what they want to do.

How about you? Does any of the above resonate with you? Do share.

Cheers!
