Whats Holding You Back?

“Well, that didn’t go as planned.”

What's holding you back?

After reading this email you’ll think I’m the worst marketer on the planet, because I’m not selling anything.

Instead, I want to give you something money can’t buy.

Take a deep breath and get ready to be honest and vulnerable about yourself.

And yes, this is going to be hard for most of us to do because you probably have acting skills that rival any Hollywood actor.

Every day we go around pretending we have it together.

My life is one hot mess.

This is how I would describe my life.

I’m strapped into the front seat of a rocket powered roller coaster that's coming off the tracks, and I’ve got no clue how out of control it really is.

One of the favorite sayings in my house is this:

“Well, that didn’t go as planned.”

How’s that for being vulnerable?

Now what's the story you’re telling yourself about why things aren’t where they should be in business, life, health, relationships, your spiritual journey?

If you can be honest, you’ll admit to that quiet, small voice in your head that you're the one holding you back.

Your story is often a product of your environment.

We see people getting wealthy as kids and we create a belief that we don’t deserve wealth because we are not special like them.

This is the kind of thinking that will sabotaged everything.

Take 5 minutes today and really be honest with yourself. Write down your beliefs and work on figuring out what's holding you back.

You might be shocked to see what you really believe.

But you’ll never get over your limiting beliefs until you face them head on.

I hope you find immense value in this exercise just as I have, and maybe I’m not the world’s worst marketer after all.

Talk soon,
