One step past where you stop is your success.

A talented  trainer from Minus Zero Trainings and good friend of mine named Thinh was sharing with me what he noticed about himself and I thought, “That is me too!” He said, “Notice where you stop. That is where you have placed your own limitations.”

So, where do you stop?

How many times do you ask for what you want before you tell yourself to stop by saying, “I don’t want to bother them (be rude, pushy, needy, etc.).”

Where do you stop?

How many times to you try to accomplish your goals and dreams before you quit with an excuse like, “This is just not for me”, “I just can’t do it”, “I can’t look that foolish“, “The economy is too bad for this”, or “I just don’t know the right people”, “If I was like that other guy I could, but…”

Where do you stop?

Notice those around you that seem to succeed more then you. Notice how they make requests and repeatedly attempt their goals again and again. Pay special attention to the things they say and do that make you cringe. What do they do that you would “never” do, because it is too risky or un-calculated? What do they say that you would “never” say, because it is too rude or pushy?

If this resonates with you, try being a bit more rude, pushy and risky. Notice where stop and try going a bit further. It just might work out for you.
