What’s one thing that holds a you back from achieving a goal?
Not just any goal but that one main goal. We all have one and some of us sabotage our own life by quitting. So many of my clients do this when it comes to getting healthy.
Tomorrow I will have part 2, but I need all of you to weigh in on this discussion. SO PLEASE DO SO.
I’m looking forwarding to reading your comments!
You could have chosen any blog to read but, you chose mine and, I’m honored!

I have issues on focusing and figuring out what I want to be, or can be…..some days I still haven’t found what I’m looking for, or out here on my own
I know what you mean. But why do we have too choose? I ask myself this all the time. When you have so many different interest that don’t line up with one another , we feel like we have to choose one and dump the others. But I think we should do them all.
Have fun and figure it out as we go.
That’s what I’m in the process of trying to do now myself
GOOD!!!!!! You got this Jay!
I turn 50 next month and am struggling with all that things I thought my life would be, but trying to count my blessings.
I totally agree, I’m 53 and still trying to figure things out.
Glad I’m not the only one.
I think we all are in one way or another
Yeah, you’re right
Your not alone like Michael Jackson lol
I certainly feel that way, I will be spending most of my birthday and Christmas alone. Well I know that the Lord is with me.
Now you have all of us!!!
i’m turning fifty in 5 months. 💕
Lucky number 50!♥️🤍😍🙌🏽
And there’s nothing wrong with that. I’m the same way.
Michelle youo are preaching to the choir. I remember feeling like that when I turned 30 and 40 and I’m sure 50 will be the same.
But you’re right counting our blessings and being happy about what we have accomplished is so important.
Thanks my friend.
That doesn’t make me feel any better lol.
I don’t know yet honestly.
I get that!
It’s really just physical pain. I get through the work day and am just too achy for self care. Any ideas for this old lady?
Paula after a long day my back tightens up on me and my legs so my daughter has me doing yoga and I’m meditating again. Taking time to just breathe.
Thank you 💗
Wonderful post! Thank’s for share Belladona.
Thank you Elvira! Merry Christmas o you my dear friend.
Your are welcome, Belladonna!
Merry Christmas my dear friend!
Me I have a hard time staying focused between family friends and TV also it’s not always easy to do something new or you or no one else has done between fear of what might happen or not happen or who’s going to like it promote what your doing then there is laziness
I totally agree with all of this. It’s definitely hard to find the time to balance out everything and then fear strikes.
I’ve found that if I wait for others too promote something I’m doing or back me up I’ll be waiting all my life.
Whatever you desire to do just do it and if you fail, try it again and again until you win!
Not having people around me who encourage me or believe that what I’m doing is worthwhile.
I agree too Jay!
Oh this is HUGE! Negativity will destroy all confidence and put you right where those naysayers want you to be. Rmoving yourself from the is the best thing you can do. Finding people that back you and support you can change your life.
Yeah I know, I’m working on the people part.
Good for you! You’re going to be so happy you did.
I’m in my 50’s and I don’t act my age, but I’m also aware that injuries like knee joints, etc seem to take ages to come right again, so in some ways I’m very careful not to over do it.
That’s great! I’m learning to modify on some things because having surgery is not something I want to do.
Love the fact that you don’t act your age! KEEP THAT GOING!
Consistency with making the time to focus on my goal. Great post, Belladonna.💕
Grace you said that right! Consistency is key.
Thanks so much, Belladonna.💕
I think the most important thing when setting goals is to have a clear vision of the outcome. Holding that published book in your hand, seeing your body strength increase, repairing a severed relationship, snagging the perfect job for you, or starting a healthy diet. I have to visualize the outcome for it to come true. Hugs, C
Cheryl that is so true!!!!!! Visualizing the things you want is a huge motivation. I use to do vision boards and not so sure why I stopped but your comment sparked a desire to do one for this year. Hope you are a having a great Holdiday season.
I used to have a vision board too! I’m recreating that for 2023! Let’s go big next year. Happy Holiday to you and yours, hugs, C
YES!!!!!! I’m all in. Happy Holidays to you and your family and hugs right back atcha!
You’re most welcome
Move out of my mother’s trailer and get a more steady income to pay for my own food again. Maybe a child soon as well, but I have a feeling that will be put on hold as well 🙁
Sounds like some good plans to me! Make 2023 your year and prepare yourself for that bundle of joy!
To be honest, my lack of confidence is the only thing preventing me from achieving my goal. But I am determined to win this battle against myself to achieve my dreams. 😊😊😊❤❤❤
Aparna you are such a light! You will win at whatever you put your mind to. Can’t wait to watch you reach all your goals.
Thank you soooooo much, dear Bella. Your sweet words of encouragement are like morning coffees to me. They give me so much strength and energy. ❤❤❤😊😊😊😊😊😊
Yayyy I’m so glad you said that! So sweet of you.
It’s gotta be time holding me back and the demands on it…
As a parent I totally feel ya Simon!
The rollercoaster of life. All goes well while things are calm in life. But how do we not derail from goal during hard times?
Great point! I for one pray pray pray and remind myself who I am and what I’m capable of!
Work priorities. And then when I do have time, too many doors to pick. Better prioritization.
Brian that’s so common and I had to ask myself why donU need to choose? Pick as many doors as you can handle! 2023 is your year to grab it all!!!
“What if I lose, but oh darling what if I win?” 😘💖🤩
Yassssss!!! That changes you entire way of thinking.
Oh indeed! 😘💋🥰
I always accomplish things late. I learned to read when I was in the 7th grade. I graduated from college when I was in my 40s. I started writing books when I was 56. My next goal is to see the books I’ve written published. The only thing standing in my way is myself. I need to take me out of the way.
Molly you continue to fascinate me! You are an exceptional person and I look forward too buying your books. Wwith you track record you will publish them.
Thank you, I believe I will in the near future. I am working through the editing process to get them into good shape right now.
Merry Christmas dear Belladonna to you and your family.
Merry Christmas John!
Thank you dear Belladonna.
Thank you Shalkot.
This was a great post. I think for me and many people it is the fear of failure that keeps them from doing what they truly want to do. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and blessings to you and your loved ones. Big hugs Joni.
Thank you Joni!!!! Happy Holidays!!!
There was a time when I was fearful of both success and failure. Quite paralyzing. Not so today, yet those old habits do arise at times, and when they do, I remember to take the action anyway, as the action is mine, the results are not. Awesome post, Belladonna!
The action is mine! Jeff I love that!
Gurl… I wish I knew!!! I guess it’s me not finding the time and space to prioritize me while taking care of everyone else. In the end, I guess its’ my head… “There’s not time.” “It’s too hard.” “I’m tired.” “I’m stressed.” “It won’t work.”… Sis you know me, don’t beat me too hard. XOX)
Angela you are a fantastic human being. You put your whole heart in everything you do and that’s why you are destined to win. Just remember to take time for yourself so you can regroup.
Sometimes, it’s just about winning, but doing. Here’s a quote I wrote earlier tonight; “With every step, we progress. With each breath taken, we find success. If, we choose to stand still, we will surely digress.” Whatever, I put my heart to, God makes the way, clear! Merry Christmas!
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful word!!!!!
Your right. When you put your sincere efforts and struggle to achieve the goals. God paves the way for you.
Sincere efforts and hardship never go in vain.
Thank you so much for commenting but please save your advice for your own blog. I like people to feel how they want to feel over here without judgement and others thoughts being given to them.
I noticed that you replied to a lot of people on this post. I didn’t like that.
