The 7 Mistakes That Are Keeping You From Having The Career Or Business You Want

Is your career everything you’d like it to be?  If not, are you taking action to get your needs and wants met?  

There are seven mistakes that hold you back from going for what you want.  They are basically motivational barriers because if you don’t resolve them you won’t be able to optimally engage.

  • Get leverage on why this is truly important beyond a mere “should” or “nice to”
  • Believe you can succeed; if not, figure out a way to build belief that you can
