Your Greatest Enemy
If you answer these questions, you’ll come to realize the only thing standing in your way, is yourself. Nobody can stop you entirely from being where you need to be or even want to be. The only person you have to conquer is yourself.
It’s hard to change yourself from your material habits to your personality. While others may say you can do something and invoke you to try new things, perhaps it’s your own thoughts holding you back.
Feeling insecure about yourself is the main reason why most people don’t listen to motivation when doing something new. Self-doubt keeps you from committing yourself to brighter and unfamiliar endeavors. If you don’t feel good about yourself, how are you going to feel good about anything else?
Another issue that can often quarrel with motivating yourself to do new things would be ignorance and pride. Some people refuse to mentally open up to new experiences or ideas, which means that motivation doesn’t encourage them to discover new opportunities but rather stick to their own game.
Once again, motivation is something each individual has, and the idea is that motivation differs from each person based on personal wants and needs.
So while a person believes that going to the beach is a fun idea and would try to go to the beach in their free time, another might see it as a nuisance to go out and rather motivate themselves to stay at home and enjoy a quiet day indoors.
What can make you change yourself is entirely up to you.
Whenever you feel as though you can’t pull yourself to do something, no one else is stopping you, only yourself. Trying new ideas and experiencing unusual things is all progress in self-development and can only reap fruitful benefits. That’s why, when considering something new, it’s always good to look at the positive side with an open mind.
If you can conquer your own emotions, then there’s nothing standing in your way.
