If you’re having trouble getting your business off the ground, you might think it’s because you don’t have the proper resources. All of those things are crucial, no doubt about it. However, it doesn’t matter how many resources, tools, and funds you have. If you don’t have the appropriate mindset, you’ll never achieve your goals.

Let’s take a look at some of the most typical mental roadblocks to accomplishing your business objectives, shall we?

Obstacle 1: Pessimistic People

While it would be ideal if all of your loved ones rallied around you, this isn’t always the case. Many of your loved ones will turn out to be pessimistic, cynical jerks instead. It’s one thing for strangers to make fun of your fantasies and make light of your aspirations, but when someone you care about does it, it’s an entirely different story. It’s a big deal. As a result, you may find yourself second-guessing your business concepts and strategies. Yes, it has the potential to derail your business objectives completely, but only if you allow them. You’ll get closer to your ambitions if you can get over the people who are critical of you.

Consider the career of Walt Disney. Because he thought Disney’s concept for an animated feature was absurd, his banker refused to lend him any money. On the other hand, his wife believed that no one would be interested in hearing about it. When Disney showed his brother the design for what would become Mickey Mouse, his brother scoffed in his face.

Of course, you’ve already guessed the conclusion. Disney was able to ignore skepticism, uncertainty, and negativity. Aside from movies and TV series, the Disney corporation has grown into one of the world’s largest and most successful entertainment conglomerates.

So, take a moment to process it!

There would be no Mickey Mouse or Disney World if Walt Disney listened to the naysayers.

Trust me; you’ll hear a lot of naysayers along the way. You must learn to tune them out so that they do not detract you from your goals and ambitions for your business. You may have to cut these negative people off and avoid the toxic ones.

Following that, we have!

Obstacle 2: Failing to have confidence in oneself

It’s bad enough when people make fun of your ideas or express skepticism about your goals. However, there are situations when that critical voice is coming from within. Listen intently, and you may hear your inner critic saying something like this:

  • That’s not going to work in real life.
  • Who am I kidding?
  • You’re wasting time.
  • You’re not ready.

You’re probably already listening to that voice in an infinite loop. However, after hearing it, put it away. Put a stop to it. Respond to it in your own words. As an illustration:

  • The reason this will succeed is that I’ve done my homework and am tenacious. 
  • It’s a great idea, and I am familiar with it. 
  • It’s something that the world requires, and I am the one who must provide it.

Your inner critic will loosen its grip on you if you get into the habit of noticing and counteracting it, and then you’ll be in a better position to pursue your goals and aspirations.

Obstacle 3: Fear

It’s probably the biggest of them all. It could be fear of failure or fear of success, or a generalized dread of the unknown. Many people would instead stick with what they know, even if it means putting their hopes and goals on the backburner for the time being.

Fear, however, does not necessarily have icy fingers to hold you hostage. It’s not necessarily in an immediately recognizable form. Often, it sneaks up on you and wrecks havoc on your business.

Here are three different personas it can assume:

• Procrastination. When this occurs, it’s pretty evident. When the day is over, you realize you did nothing despite your best efforts. Instead, you spent time on Facebook or YouTube, mindlessly scrolling through posts and videos. You may have even gone offline and engaged in another activity. What’s important to remember is that you failed to make any headway toward your business objectives by putting things off.

• Perfectionism. This one is difficult to answer because society rewards hard workers. So, if someone is consistently putting off getting anything done because they want everything “perfect,” they can console themselves by saying that they’re doing a fantastic job instead of getting frustrated.

However, there’s no such thing as perfection because nothing is flawless. When you understand that, you’ll be able to release good (but not perfect) items, business concepts, and websites into the world, knowing you can always fix them along the way.

If you look at any software business, you’ll see that they make good software even if they know it’s far from flawless. Users will help them find and fix bugs once it’s out in the open.

In other words, striving for perfection isn’t motivated by a desire to be the best; it’s inspired by fear because you won’t have to be concerned about failing if you never make anything public.

• Busy-work. In this situation, you’re constantly busy from day to night, but nothing gets accomplished. As an illustration, let’s say you decided to conduct some market research. Having spent a week reading forum posts, you’ve convinced yourself that this is vital work. As a general rule, if you don’t work on the big stuff, you don’t have to worry about failure or success.

To summarize, become adept at spotting the signs of anxiety in situations when it manifests itself in different ways. Overcome fear by taking action. Feel the fear and do it anyway. Say to yourself each day when you wake up: No complaints, no excuses, no blames, just do it.

What Will You Choose?

Most people are unaware that they choose whether or not they will be successful. Continue doing what you’ve always done, and you’ll continue to get the results you’ve constantly obtained—every single day. The situation is the same: the same degree of success, the exact amount of money, the same way of life. Your excitement (or boredom) level is the same as it was before.

Alternatively, you can immediately choose success. When your entrepreneurial goals come true, you have the option of having more pleasure, more excitement, or more money.

To achieve success, all it takes is a bit of mental tweaking to be ready for everything life throws your way. Fear dissipates as soon as you let go of it. Criticism from others bounces right off you like Teflon. You look forward to working every day because you’re excited and motivated to work on your business.
