Doubts And Why They Are Holding You Back

food-frustrated-womanHave you ever pondered the questions… “Why are some people successful?” and “why do some people continually fail over and over again?”

As I was reading an article this weekend, these were the questions that crossed my mind…

So naturally, I started making a list of reasons on what my answers were for these questions…

After making a short list and reading through it, I realized something…

The main difference between successful people and unsuccessful people can be summed up into this:

Successful people take action and FAIL FORWARD…

Unsuccessful people sit back and wait for something to happen…

It’s funny, just recently I put out a nutrition program that I had been testing and tweaking for the last several years.

And finally, I decided it was time to release it to the public. Before I did that though, I asked for 15 volunteers to commit to a 30-day trial to test the program out one last time.

And do you know what the results were?

A total of 3 people took action and finished the full 30-day program and here were their results:

  • Lost 22 pounds of fat in 30 days
  • Lost 15 pounds of fat in 30 days
  • Lost 10 pounds of fat in 30 days

What happened to the other 12 people on the program? Well, I either received emails “doubting” the system, giving me excuses why it wasn’t going to work, or had some simply telling me they had decided they weren’t going to do it. In short… they didn’t take action…

Now let me ask you this… What was the difference between the 3 people who saw amazing results and the 12 people who quit or never even started?

The 3 successful people took action and failed forward. 

The other 12 doubted, questioned, and sat back and waited for something to happen…

Here’s what’s interesting… I had tested this system before and knew for a fact that it worked incredibly well when followed.

I had proof and showed real world examples… yet people still made excuses about why they couldn’t do it.

Clearly, they could do it, they just didn’t want to commit to a short 30-days. They didn’t want to work hard… They instead wanted me to send them an email that said, “hey, go buy this magic pill and you will lose 25 pounds in 30 days.”

Sorry, but this is not how things happen…

After the 30-day trial period, when I finally released the program to the public… I had people emailing me within 1-2 weeks saying that they had already lost 8-10 pounds or were starting to see their abs or were feeling more healthy than ever.

I had others emailing me, however, that were still doubting the system and if it was going to work for them… (just FYI… YES, it will work for you…)

I cannot tell you how frustrating this is…

Here’s my point…

When you take action and push through the failures… Success will follow.

If, however, you just sit back and wait, doubt, question, etc… You will find it very hard to ever achieve the kind of success you want…

I encourage you to question and test things out for yourself. However if questions or doubts are holding you back from ever taking action, you are hurting yourself…

Take the next 30-days and test something new out and see the results it brings. Fail forward.

Don’t let doubts stop you from the massive success that awaits when you take action and fail forward…

Now go out and get after it!
