5 Beliefs That Keep You from Attacking Your Goals
Everyone has dreams, but not everyone makes their dreams into goals. You may have a few of these too. What are the reasons you tell yourself late at night to put the shutdown on making them a reality? These reasons are beliefs that you have, but that doesn’t mean they are valid reasons for not experiencing goal achievement.
1. Not Enough Time
Everyone is busy these days. When someone asks how you are doing, you probably respond with “Busy.” But that might not be the truth. Everyone has the same twenty-four hours in the day. For a week or maybe two, keep a time ladder of how you spent your time. This includes sleeping, preparing and eating meals, social media, getting ready for work, cleaning your house. Take a good look at how your time is spent, and you might realize you have more time than you realize.
2. I Don’t Have ‘X’ Talent
It doesn’t matter if you want to write a book or paint a picture, you have as much talent as you are willing to work for. You may not have been born with the natural ability to paint, it doesn’t mean you can’t learn and practice.
3. After ‘X’ I Will Do It
“Once I get through this (insert tough project at work), I will start training for that marathon.” “After I lose twenty pounds, I will take a salsa dancing class.” Why are you waiting? Maybe that marathon training will help you work through the stress of that project at work. Perhaps salsa dancing lessons will allow you realize that no matter your weight, your body is worthy of fun and sexy movement. If you have a goal, go for it now.
4. I’m Not Good Enough
What ruler are you using to measure your “good enough”? You are always good enough to go after your own dreams and goals. If this is an internal dialogue, then you need to work on liking and loving yourself first. If this belief is coming from external sources, then consider those sources and if they are holding you back.
5. ‘X’ Person Has it Easier
The grass is greener where you water it. Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. There are many sayings that sum up that you really don’t know what someone else is going through. So do not assume that someone has it easier, and therefore can achieve their goals while you cannot. That person may think you have it easier or better.
Self-limiting beliefs can be a slippery slope especially when it comes to goal achievement. They can also keep you from even trying to reach your goals. Take time to examine your reasoning and come up with better beliefs to counter the negative ones.

Looking to start a career without a college diploma? With the changing market, there are many alternatives to traditional education. Here are a few careers that allow you to be financially secure without needing to pursue a four-year degree.

Salon Owner

Salons are a big part of the service industry, from hair salons and barbershops to spas and beauty salons. Not only can you be the head of a lucrative business, but salon owners also get to be their own boss and interact with people every day! The best way to build any business is through careful planning. Before starting, be sure to follow these tips:

  • Gain practical skills and knowledge
  • Find a mentor in the industry
  • Plan your services and your clientele
  • Learn about your competition
  • Find a good location
  • Pay attention to budgeting and how to finance your salon
  • Obtain permits
  • Register and insure your business
  • Create a solid online presence and build a marketing campaign

Real Estate

There are many benefits to working in real estate. The hours are flexible and there’s unlimited earning potential. However, estate agents can also work long hours and their incomes can vary month-to-month. But if you’re looking to start a career in real estate, be sure you complete these steps before selling your first home:

  • Look into licensing and state requirements. Each state can have different requirements which may or may not be transferred.
  • Take a licensing course before your exam. This can be in-person or online. Unfortunately, many online real estate courses have been slow to include videos in their course materials.
  • Complete the licensing exam. Each exam is split into national practices and state-specific laws, so be sure to study both.

Computer Programmer

Programmers create, write and test the code used in many different computer applications. Not only do these jobs tend to have remote, flexible hours, they also rely more on a person’s technical knowledge or professional history. While some programmers attend university, many employers only require an associate’s degree or a background in programming. Because programs run on specific coding languages, employers look for employees who are certified or fluent in these languages. Programmers can certify their skills through attending workshops or boot camps designed for people wanting to get into the industry. Computer programming is one of the most lucrative careers, with median incomes around $86,000 a year.

Pursuing a career without a college degree can be intimidating. Take advantage of the resources around you. Research online and reach out to people in the industry. Networking is great for those looking to start a career and most people are happy to lend a little help.
