11. What stops me from being motivated and how can I overcome these obstacles?
You know yourself better than anyone else. This is what is truly holding you back. List your biggest fear, and immediately confront it. Fear paralyzes us with indecision and can make it nearly impossible to take action. Visualize yourself as unafraid and confront your fear.

It’s important that even when times are tough, you remain positive about yourself.
One of the most powerful things you can do is repeat positive af f i rmations to yourself outloud. Write down what you like about yourself, and repeat it often.

In order to achieve the goals that you set for yourself, you must make a strong, unwavering commitment to them. Make a commitment to yourself today.
