What Stops You From Being Your Best?

Is there anything better than stepping out into the world, feeling on top of the world? We just seem to be a little more sociable, a little sharper, a little more confident. If we could only bottle that feeling and carry it around with us at all times, our lives would be amazing. Alas, there is that old ball and chain -- real life -- that we have to deal with. And try as we might, sometimes we’re not at our best. Indeed, there are times when it feels like we’re very far from our best. Below, we take a look at some of the common reasons that hold us back. Take care of them, and you’ll be on your way to becoming a better version of yourself.

Non-Stop Action
We all have responsibilities in life. The issue is that although we seem to acquire more and more, it’s rare that we let some go. Over time, this results in a life that’s far too fast-paced for us to be at our best. We’re just on the treadmill of life, and we’re cutting out too many things that would improve our lives. There are two recommended actions for this. One is to meditate; it’ll put a gap between you and stress. The second is to cut back on responsibilities wherever possible -- could you, for instance, say no to a social invite?

Common Weak Spots
It’s always important to remember that you’re not alone in this world. No matter what you’re going through that’s holding you back, there will be plenty of other people experiencing the same thing -- and there will also be people that can help you to put the issue behind you. If substance abuse is holding you back from fulfilling your potential, then take a look at an intensive outpatient program IOP. If you’re struggling with debt, then work with organizations that help people with their financial difficulties. No matter how bad things may seem, there are always ways to move forward. And when you do, you might just find that you’re capable of much more than you realized.

The People Around You
Sometimes, the issue isn’t with us; it’s with the people around us. That might sound harsh, but no-one reaches their full potential without having supportive people around them. If you’re hanging out with people that are constantly putting you down and mocking your dreams, then you should look at making new friends. Our loved ones are supposed to take us higher, not keep us in a box.

Setting Your Limitations
But of course, the biggest issue will be with yourself. Everyone tells themselves a narrative, and many times it’s negative. You could be telling yourself that you’re not talented enough to build your dream or whatever. It’s not true! Learn how to talk to yourself in a better, more friendly way. You’ll find that it does wonders for your self-confidence. And once you’re full of confidence, who knows what you could go on to achieve in the future?
