When it comes to growing your business, what’s really holding you back from achieving your goals? How many times have you said that you can’t do something and that’s why your business isn’t growing? What excuses are you using?

Which Goals Aren’t you Achieving?

Remember at the start of the year and we talked about setting your goals like a ninja? Well, now is the time to take a good look at those goals and ask yourself what has been holding you back in achieving them.

I talk to business owners every day. All different types of businesses and all different types of people. I can always spot the ones that will stop at nothing to achieve their goals and they pretty much always do. And then there are the ones that have a pre-prepared endless list of excuses as to why they can’t do things or don’t understand things or why Twitter is the devil. Even their excuses have excuses. When really the only thing that is holding them back is themselves. We all have the power and the ability to achieve whatever we want to achieve. The trick is not only actually getting stuck in and doing what’s required but not letting your own self-doubt get the better of you.

Take Action

The internet has brought us untold opportunities and the power to achieve so much. Yet often we forget that it can also tell us everything that we need to know about pretty much everything. So when you next find yourself saying that you can’t do something or don’t understand something, Google it. It’s really is that simple. You have the power at your fingertips to find out about anything and everything. So if you have skills or a knowledge gap then I’m pretty sure you can find all the information you need online to help you with it. We live in an age where there is an abundance of knowledge all around us so use it!

Let me know in the comments below what excuses you have been making about what is holding you back and then how you are going to tackle it head on so you can achieve your goals before the end of the year.
