6 Ways to Crush Your Inner Demons and Create Explosive Growth in Your Life

Published

personal growth

Powerful people are known for their ambition and desire to chase the impossible making it a reality. What sets them apart from the rest is their determination to play big and slay their inner demons. Powerful and successful people didn’t get to where they are today because they made excuses. They achieved their success because they eliminated anything that didn’t serve their big picture vision. Take control back of your life today to step into your fullest potential.

Here are the 6 demons holding you back from taking action and claiming the life you deserve:

1. Slay Your Big Picture Goals and Step into Greatness

Your lust for instant gratification is holding you back from achieving long-term goals. Tap into a powerful mindset by mapping out your goals starting with the end in mind. Create milestones as you work backwards to your starting point and acknowledge the milestones you hit along the way to keep tabs on your progress.

2. Get Control of Your Thoughts and Change Your Life

Thoughts of negativity and doubt are leading your life and holding you back from leaping into greatness. It’s the angel and devil on your shoulder scenario but you’re letting the devil win. Gain control of your thoughts and change your life by replacing the negativity with words of empowerment and motivation. This simple and effective exercise will do the trick:

  1. Identify self-sabotaging thoughts
  2. Write out all of the accompanying beliefs that make that thought true
  3. Reframe your perspective by writing out why you’re capable and deserving of your desires
  4. Read from start to finish

The most powerful leaders practice this as soon as the devil starts to creep back in. The key is recognizing these thoughts immediately and destroying them before they hinder progress.

“Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.” – Chris Grosser

3. Plunge into Powerful Opportunities by Taking Messy Action

The most successful people in life didn’t get to where they are today because they waited for the perfect moment, they took the plunge and figured it out along the way. If you’re waiting to do something because you want it to be ‘perfect’, you’re never going to achieve it. Powerful people recognize opportunity and destroy fears by facing perfectionism head on and taking action.

4. Fuel Your Inner-Self and Create Habits That Serve Your Success

Success is about choosing between what you want right now and what you want the most. If it isn’t serving your big picture vision, eliminate it. Ditch the junk food and addictive habits. Powerful leaders all have one thing in common: their focus on their mind, body and health. They’ve replaced social media and tv dependencies, with reading, meditation and healthy eating habits.

5. Control Your Environment and Invest in Your Mindset

You will never grow to your fullest potential by keeping toxic people in your life. They’re known as vampires that suck the energy from you and do anything to keep you small. If you can’t eliminate them, detach yourself and minimize contact with them. Surround yourself with quality not quantity.

“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.” – Jim Rohn

6. Level Up Your Confidence to Live to Your Greatest Potential

If you’re never going after opportunities, you’ll never know what you’re fully capable of. People who play small, settle for unfulfilling lives because complacency sets in. Level up your confidence by taking a leap and unleashing your power to achieve something great.

Stop letting these demons hold you hostage from living out the life you desperately desire. You’re meant for a life so much greater than you’re living. Take action today to crush these soul-sucking limitations and achieve massive growth.

    inner demons are own weakness which is the result of ignorance and lack of awareness on ourself. collectively our set of weaknesses are our negativity which should be root out to grow exponentially.

We all have a God-given destiny to fulfill that we were each born with. I personally believe it is buried deep down within us. The number one secret to success is to let it emerge out of you and release it to the world. What is my destiny you may ask? It is the thing you would regret not doing before leaving Planet Earth.

Don’t Want To Feel Like A Failure Anymore? Stop Doing These 6 Things

Published

It’s pretty annoying isn’t it? All those great and accomplished people telling you that FAILURE is a necessity on your way to success. Yeah, that’s easy for them to say; they’re already ‘on the other side’! You on the other hand, are still struggling all day everyday to get your business lifted off the ground and are really not that sure if you’re indeed going to make it.

There’s that little voice in your head that keeps telling you that you don’t have the stuff to make it all happen. Not now and not ever. You feel like a failure…it’s holding you back and you don’t know how to deal with it. Well you could do yourself a favor and start dealing with it by doing the following things:

1. Stop Denying You Feel Like A Failure

Telling yourself things are going great when they’re not is one of the biggest, though most useless, coping mechanisms human beings deploy in rough times. Common denial signals among entrepreneurs: trying to regain more control by working even more hours and on the other side compensating this by letting go of all this control by partying and drinking way too hard.

What you’re doing is denying yourself the opportunity to actually feel what’s going on and acknowledge the problem; that both you and your business are in a bad place. Without acknowledging it, it’ll be pretty difficult to actually STOP feeling it. And remember, just because you feel like a failure, this does not mean that you indeed ARE a failure!

2. Stop Making It Bigger Than it Really Is

This is one of those other ‘fun’ things human beings do; we blow things way out of proportion in our heads! In business, when you lose that big client you’ve been working on for weeks, it feels like it’s the end of the world. You start doubting yourself, your strategy, your entire business model right up to the point where you barely sleep because you’re working on pivoting the whole thing.

But what if that customer simply didn’t have the money to go for your service anyway? Or what if they just decided to go for someone who is cheaper but who offers less quality? Does that mean there’s something wrong with YOU? Or that this was the ONLY customer out there and that you’re now doomed forever?

Of course not, it simply means that THIS CUSTOMER wasn’t a match. It’s a bit like dating actually…So if you take this into consideration, could it be that you just feel like a failure instead of really not succeeding in that what you want to at this point in time?

3. Stop Thinking You’re The Only One Who Feels Like This

You’re not! With the possible exception of the true sociopaths, that feeling you’re feeling is very normal to EVERYONE. It might not seem like it on the outside – because people don’t like to acknowledge this remember – but I can guarantee you that it’s true. But unlike 99% of the world’s population, YOU’RE not going to let this feeling stop you in your tracks. Are you?

4. Stop Thinking You’re Supposed To Be Superhuman

In fact, it’s very likely that you’re already doing, learning and succeeding at WAY more than most other people are. But for entrepreneurs, somehow, that never seems to be enough. You don’t just want to be successful after a few years of hard work (which is normal). You want to be successful after only a few months. Because you’re special…or at least you think you are…

Well, here’s the truth: you ARE special! But…it’s just not very likely that you’re one of those – very very rare – entrepreneurial superstars that – seemingly – just added some hot water and got instant business success as a result.

5. Stop Being So Incredibly Stubborn

Entrepreneurs are stubborn…almost by default. It’s what makes them push forward in the hardest of times. But…if you’re not doing the right things right you might just be hammering a square peg through a round hole. Which will only add to that frustrated feeling you’re already having. So why not stop being so stubborn for a moment, stop hammering away on that what obviously is not working and ask for help?

No matter who you ask – a business mentor or coach, a befriended entrepreneur – someone with a neutral perspective on you and our business will be very likely to see what’s going on with a lot more clarity than you can and can guide you to a place that will feel a whole lot more comfortable.

6. Stop Being Afraid Of Failure

I know, I know, you’ve heard this a million times before and you wouldn’t be in this pickle if you could do this. Right? I’m right there with ya!

But, if you get really rational about it, what’s the worst that could happen?

  • You might have to get a ‘real’ job for a while and start over on the side;
  • You might not be able to afford your rent anymore…but with Airbnb on the 1 hand and couchsurfing on the other, you should be able to work it out somehow;
  • You’ll have all the more experience to start over a whole lot faster;
  • You’ll be no less respected by anyone because it’s clear you gave it your all;
  • In a few years, when you’re an established and supersuccessful entrepreneur you’ll also have a cool failure story to tell;
  • None of your limbs will fall off;

Now that’s not too bad for a plan B is it? Failure is such a negative word. And the associated feeling is terrible and numbing. But really…how is giving it your all and not succeeding really the same as failing? Shouldn’t the definition of failure not be along the lines of ‘not even trying’ or ‘giving up when it gets hard’?

In other words: stop beating yourself up over this!

There’s really no need to feel like a failure at all because you’re sticking your neck out, you’re trying to make a difference and you’re still moving upward on that treacherous entrepreneurial mountain.

And that…is what success REALLY is.
