What’s In The Way Of Your Success?


It might not be what you think…

There are bunches of things that can interfere with our success and movement forward. If you’re like me, you understand and believe there is a big energy component. And, you know that you have to be taking action – throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what will stick and consistently trying things out, continuing with what works, and changing what doesn’t.

But, what happens when you feel you’ve got all those pieces in place?

You’re taking the actions, it’s imperfect, and you’re good with that…

You feel your energy is in the right place, you’re positive and focused in the right direction…

So, what’s up?

What if it’s something really simple… like not acknowledging the success you are having that’s stopping you from more?

Examine your business, your day-to-day stuff, and see where you could be celebrating what’s going well, appreciating yourself for taking action in the face of resistance and fear, and making space to really acknowledge all that you are doing.

You might just find taking a few minutes each day to write down and then relish and revel in your accomplishments, no matter how small, shifts things and takes you to the next level.

    Wow – your answer surprised me! I really do get to that place of doing and doing that I forget to look at DONE! And if just being happy with your success can actually help us move forward, then it is well worth taking the time to enjoy. That is so nice! :) Thanks, Payson!

    Payson this is a fabulous post! I so often forget to celebrate my achievements… I always acknowledge them and am grateful but I rarely spend enough time celebrating them. Thank you for this important reminder!

    I have a pretty lime green Gratitude Journal just for this. When I acknowledge my blessings everyday – forward movements in my biz or making time for a yummygelatto, I get excited to keep moving, and stop grousing.

    Love those ways of enjoying and appreciating Sara! And, it’s so true – definitely helps keep the momentum, makes the energy flow and keeps us focused on the right things! :-)
