Getting Out Your Own Way are situations, that confronts us all whether we know it or not.
When we can come to the realization to the truth of the matter, the sooner we will find our true selves.
Getting Out Your Own Way get you closer to the truth of your “Why,” your beliefs, your expectations, and your passions.
Some obstacles challenge us at every turn in life and deter us from seeing our path clearly.
Ever heard or used one of these phrases, “life ain’t easy, “it ain’t easy being me”knee deep in s**t” or ” can’t see the forest for the trees”?
At first read, they all seem easily defined. But with your interpretation, you can gauge where you are in your life journey, and how clearly we recognize the obstacles.
Getting Out Your Own Way is a part of life. Do you believe you are put on this earth with a purpose? Or do you believe it was a matter of chance?
Are you an atheist or do you believe in a supreme architect of all there is?
Your answer to any of the questions mentioned, will not detract from the fact that you are here live in the flesh.
How you choose to live life is up to you. You control your destiny, and to reach what you are destined for will be a fight with the biggest obstacle you will ever face.
The number one obstacle is yourself. The tools needed are within you, but just like the obstacles that you acknowledge as such, you must also recognize the tools within you to confront and win this fight.
Getting Out Your Own Way
We all have are beliefs about life issues, laws, and what to do to create change.
Without including genetics, our beliefs are usually decisions derived from the environment, associates, and influence through education.
It is the combination of all these parts that help determine a mental makeup.
Along with some soul searching, we begin the process of how we choose to live your life which in turn paints a mental picture of our “why,” passion and destiny.
My passion is to have success with a home business. My why is the same as my mission. To help as many as I can find success with a home business while leaving a legacy for my grandchildren. Showing them what hard work and believing in yourself produces.
And with this knowledge, we can with practice, a create mental or physical defense mechanism.
Every obstacle will not be obvious, they can come in disguise as one of the 7 deadly sins or as some might refer to as 7 temptations.
The seven deadly sins viewed by society and literature are:
- Lust – to have an intense desire or need: “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28).
- Gluttony – excess in eating and drinking: “for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags” (Proverbs 23:21).
- Greed – excessive or reprehensible acquisitiveness: “Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more” (Ephesians 4:19).
- Laziness – disinclined to activity or exertion: not energetic or vigorous: “The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway” (Proverbs 15:19).
- Wrath – strong vengeful anger or indignation: “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (Proverbs 15:1)
- Envy – painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage: “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it, you may grow up in your salvation” (1 Peter 2:1-2).
- Pride – quality or state of being proud – inordinate self-esteem: “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18).
I think even the atheist would have to agree on the validity of these seven sins and acknowledge they can lead to a life of problems and destruction.
I think most of are obstacles occur because we are daunted with temptations that are easily accepted as being okay, and when one adheres to what is right will face much more opposition.
In pursuit of our passions, the temptations are intensified because they are directed at an accomplishment or goal we are trying to achieve.
These type of temptations are easily recognizable but can be strong, and lure you into making hasty decisions and not with good judgment. It is a strong mental makeup that leads to success.
The successful person will tell you without a doubt, that they had to overcome fear and failure (obstacles) throughout their journey and that is what they are most proud of.
A Strong Mentality
“Anything worth having is worth working for.” I don’t know who to give credit for that quote, but I am glad it was said.
Again actions are controlled by the individual, or are they?
Can you honestly say that you are in control of your life disregarding the manipulation of media, the crowd, friends, or wanting so much to be apart of something?
The successful person.
