Awaken The Species

by princy william (2019-02-20)

For some, success comes naturally, but for many others it is not that easy and there can be a variety of reasons for this situation that this article can't go into because it entails digging around in our early developmental years which is a subject of a book. While it might be helpful to go on an archeological journey into our past to look at the sources of our difficulties, it is not necessary in order for us to deal with them. They are after all pretty basic and ordinary conditions like impatience, negative thinking, pessimism, doubt and unrealistic expectations. These are the thought processes that we use to get in our own way and sabotage our possibilities for success.The Invisible Obstacles:I call these invisible obstacles because they are invisible to us while they are in action during our efforts to achieve something. Impatience is one of the most destructive and least visible of them all. We grow up in a civilization obsessed with the instant gratification of our every whim and desire, which results in our leaving the concept of time out of any plans we might make for successfully achieving some objective, which is a critical mistake. How many dreams have been sacrificed on the alter of impatience, sometimes just moments before success was about to arrive? We set out and begin to work hard at our goal and when it begins to take too long to bear fruit our mind kicks in with negative thoughts and pessimistic expectations and doubt, and suddenly we are spiraling down to defeat.
