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:
- Identify self-sabotaging thoughts
- Write out all of the accompanying beliefs that make that thought true
- Reframe your perspective by writing out why you’re capable and deserving of your desires
- 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.

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.
