Reasons We Never Accomplish Our Goals

Have you ever heard a preacher say, “I’m preaching what I need?” If you watch or listen to Joyce Meyer, I’m sure you’ve heard her say the phrase, “I’m preaching to you and also myself.” So guess what, I’m preaching to you and myself in this post.

I’ve been thinking about my goals lately and thought about why I’ve not been able to work towards them full force. For this reason, I considered the thought, “what’s keeping me, what’s keeping us, from accomplishing our goals. I ended up stumbling upon Les Brown’s Find Yourself motivational speech. Here are the reasons he listed:

[1] Fear of failure

[2] Fear of success

[3] Being comfortable

[4] Not feeling worthy

[5] Blaming other/complaining


Can you relate to any particular reason on this list?
