Your Obstacles

Thursday, July 27, 2017 11:31 AM
In our last posts we discussed “Your Why” and “Your How” so now we move on to “Your Obstacles.”

Do You Actually Have Obstacles?

Well yes and no, let me explain: Everything we want in life we have to work for, like it or not that’s the way it is. Because of this there are natural obstacles. When you were a little kid and wanted cookies, you had to ask for them or try and climb up to where the cookies were and get them. That may have been easy or it may have been tough depending on your situation. In other words you had an obstacle you had to overcome.

It wasn’t because you were born on the wrong side of town or anything like that, it’s just that you wanted them and needed to figure out how to get them. If you wanted the cookies you didn’t whine or march on Washington, you found a way around the obstacle.

There may be obstacles in life that are unfortunate or man-made like prejudice or other foolishness that exists. In order to be successful you must figure out ways around your obstacles but in order to do this the right way you have to know what your obstacles really are.

Real or Imaginary:

The first step to figuring this out is to get with yourself and/or those involved around you and have a real heart-to-heart regarding your obstacles. Ask each other or yourself what they are. Are they:

            *Wrong market?
            *Bad planning?
            *Wrong timing?
            *Great product but poor marketing?
            *Great product wrong message?
            *The list goes on and on?

Make sure you are being honest with yourself and those around you. If you aren’t sure about this and you have current customers, go see them and ask them, they will tell you. If you have past customers ask them as these are the best because they don’t care about hurting your feelings and will tell you the truth.

Now What?

Once you have this information go back and analyze it and see where you can improve upon the things they told you. How do you get better at these things, how do you overcome them?

As you do this you will start to see there is a whole market for what you are offering and you may end up with a much better plan than your original one.

The Moral:

The moral of the story is to not let obstacles stand in your way, use them to help launch you to a much better place. Before you know it you will have overcome “Your Obstacles” and be the success you always dreamed of becoming!

Until my next post, I wish you all success!
