Why is it we keep being stopped by invisible barriers?

More often than not we create our own invisible barrier, we can’t do it because of this, or that, I need this, that… *sigh.

There’s the goal, you see it, you know you want to get there, your’e a bit unsure so you ask others how, what’s needed to get there and if you ask ten people you will ten different opinions, views…

Nine out of ten of them will be irrelevant, maybe all of them until we actually go forth and do we will never know, we can only really learn by our own experience, yet… worse by asking others you put ten potential barriers in front of you which needn’t happen, they didn’t exist.

How silly of us!
How real though…

It happens every day with…

Blog posts, forum posts and what advice they share, tweets, even the news.
A lot of smoke and mirrors to fog the view.

The only real barrier we should be dealing with in any given situation is the one we create ourselves, that natural questioning part of us throws it up for good reason really.

Doesn’t mean it’s real…

Doesn’t mean it should stop us.

The one constant is we will learn from what we actually do, regardless of what others say will work or not, that may be true for them but for yourself it’s just do it, learn from it and move forward.

The barriers we create are invisible, so there is nothing to stop us.

I realise I have been doing it myself lately, but that will change…

I am going to keep fishing for results to build on.

The only way to get results is to work at it, focus, have the right mindset.

Are you, unknowingly, creating invisible barriers too?

    rob how true , my life is changing so much at the moment and by nature i leap into things but others urge me to take stand back and make a decision after talking to my friends and family may still make the same decision but will have given it thought from others that are wanting to see the best for me , although sometimes i think if we give too much thought we stop ourselves , i doubt myself daily and make real cock ups but learn everyday and grow from my mistakes jm xx

    I too used to create these invisible barriers, I think everyone does, but when a big part of my life was taken from me three years ago, I know I changed. I have an entirely different outlook on life now, I don't plan if I can help it,that way avoid disappointments. I look life in the face and tackle it head on now and no such words, as my teachers used to say, as can't and won't – they are NOT in the English dictionary. i often say to people, stop having NEGATIVE thoughts, think POSITIVE.

    Life is one big change. :o)

    It's always good to get friends views, mainly because they genuinely care.


    Those words, can't, won't… we should all eliminate. :o)
