Are Your Hang-Ups Standing in the Way of Your Success?

Written by Meredith Gossland

There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of books published that tell people how to sell, how to market things, and how to succeed in business but I have found that no amount of skill teaching can help, if a person doesn't look closely at their personality and hang-ups first. Self sabatoge isrepparttar # 1 enemy of people looking for success.

The business battlefield is littered with victims of self inflicted wounds. Most have a knife inrepparttar 136074 back and a dislocated shoulder from reaching back and stabbing themselves so many times. We come intorepparttar 136075 world with a clean slate but byrepparttar 136076 time we are ready to go intorepparttar 136077 business world we have developed behaviours meant to deal withrepparttar 136078 problems in life that, in fact, keep us from dealing withrepparttar 136079 problems in life.

Procrastination is one of these horrible hang-ups, and it is so common that people tend to accept it as normal behaviour.

Quiting is another, and people can create thousands of reasons why they should quit before reaching success. In reality this is just another hang-up born of feelings and emotions.

Door-mat behaviors also leave people sitting atrepparttar 136080 bottom ofrepparttar 136081 well wondering why they can't rise torepparttar 136082 top, while others are using them as stepping stones to success.

Am I insane or is this "Drive"?

Do you sleep in onrepparttar weekends? When I worked my 9-5 job I would hear it allrepparttar 135954 time from coworkers.."I get to sleep in tomorrow". I can honestly say that I don't sleep in. You would think with working from home (set your own hours) that it would be very easy to take a couple hrs of extra sleep. Every day, including Saturdays and Sundays I wake between 6.30 and 7 am est as a rule, and I just don't wake up and then park my behind onrepparttar 135955 couch to watch tv... I get my tea and get doing something. My body is programmed to this routine. Here's how my day starts.. I get out of bed, putrepparttar 135956 kettle on for a cup of tea, while that is boiling I letrepparttar 135957 dog out inrepparttar 135958 back yard and start my computer. After lettingrepparttar 135959 dog in, I call up to my girls to get up for school and then grab my tea to go read my emails from overnight.

When I look back to my childhood I realize that onrepparttar 135960 weekend I would also get up early to get my chores done, so then I can haverepparttar 135961 rest ofrepparttar 135962 day to do as I please (with my parents permission that is) .
