I’ve been writing this same book for for over a year now. To be honest, I’ve written about 5 pages.

Like many people, I struggle with the same phobia that holds a lot of us back. I start something I’m truly passionate about and then in the midst of working I start doubting myself.

"Will people like this? 
"Will anyone support my vision,? 
"I’m not educated enough to make this happen."

I have a bachelors degree, but since it wasn’t an Ivy League I tend to use that against myself.

I know I have a story that can impact lives, but my mind defeats me every time I start. I would rather settle for mediocrity and complain because I can’t get past my negative thoughts.

If you’ve ever felt like this, I want you to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel and you can reach your goals.

Here are the four things I had to understand to break through my mindset barrier and finally complete my book.

understand The beauty is in the journey.

Every flower that blossoms once started from a seed. Imagine your idea as a seed and the end result, once accomplished, is your beautiful flower. Every day that you get up and take an action towards your goal is like watering your little seed.

Your flower cannot blossom without water. And you have to do the work if you want to get to the end result in your dreams.

It won't be quick and easy but it will be worth it.

visualize Your success

When you hit a challenge in your goal-getting journey, it might be difficult to see yourself as ever reaching that goals. Creating a vision board can help bring the gap between where you are and where you’re going in your mind.

A vision board is a great way to visualize yourself at every step of your upcoming journey and give you a tangible image of what it feels like to accomplish you goal.

Realize When You’re Making Excuses, Not Progress

Sometimes we get so focused on making progress that we become distracted from our initial goal. I do this all the time.

At one point I found myself registering to every FREE event I can get my hands on. I woke up one morning and asked myself

"Why am I going to these events?”
”Do they add value to my life?”
”Can this specific event help me achieve my goal?"

After answering no to everything I realized I was distracted from my end goal.
