Hey friend, What is really holding you back? This is a question you must answer if you want to start moving forward. We all know that the best way to solving any problem is to first of all identify the problem, can you solve an issue you don’t know the cause? Of course no. You might think you’ve solved it but sooner or later, it will surface again because, you haven’t settled the main cause of the problem.
I wanted to make today’s post as short as possible because, i just returned to my state last night and have not really settled down which is also the reason why i published late today which you know is unusual so, today’s post will not be as long as the other ones :).
So tell me, what is holding you from achieving those beautiful heart desires of yours? Have you published that ebook you’ve been wanting to publish since last year? If not, why not? Oh, because English is not your first language or, you’re just not ready yet?

We have thousands of reason’s for not starting the good work we’re concern with and to be honest, i also have that thoughts from time to time.
When i was thinking of this post, i remembered some awesome quotes I’ve read before and I’m sure you will also find them interesting.
1. Ninety nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses (Anonymous)
2. I artribute my success to this: I never gave or took an excuse (Florence Nightingale)
3. I have never met a person who has given me as much trouble as myself (Dwight L. Moody)
4. It is not what you think you’re that is holding you back, its what you think you’re not (Anonymous)
There are many more but, i will stop here. One of the things that always stop people from achieving what they want is because they are always looking for perfection but, sometimes in an effort to want to be perfect, you forgot that there are people needing your service right now, right where you are.
But, do you know that Every master was once a disaster”. And it is better to test those idea out even if you “miss the mark” than to wait till you are fully ready to launch. That may not be for another decade.
So, why not start now and make corrections later? Why not publish that book now, why not start doing all those things now instead of waiting for a time that might never come?
Secondary, stop thinking of pleasing everyone, you will only be messing around because, no matter what you do and how good you do make, there are people that will still not fancy it so, why don’t you focus on those that already like what you’re doing and keep on making them happy? Check out the story below, i found it somewhere and also decided to share with you…..
An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding. The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions.
Later, they passed some people that remarked: “What a shame, he makes that little boy walk.” They then decided they both would walk!
Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey.
Now they passed some people that shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy and man said they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and he fell into the river and drowned.
The moral of the story? In Marketing, if you try to please everyone, you might as well… Kiss your ass good-bye
Now, have you seen what I’m talking about?
I will not say much again, all i want you to do now is to go register that domain you’ve been wanting to register, start writing that book now and before you know, you will finish it up.
Thanks and happy weekend in advance :).
