Restrained by Laziness
Few people will admit they are lazy. But in reality we simply lack the motivation and desire to really realize our dreams. It is just so much easier to just dream about our dreams than it is to pursue our dreams.
Restrained by Self Interest and Selfishness
It can’t be just all about YOU. If your goal is only to benefit YOU at the expense of others then you fall into the category of a Pirate Leader. You most likely have encountered pirate leaders, they are easy to spot because they pillage an organization or a relationship for their own selfish benefit.
Restrained by Old Ways
Things aren’t the way they used to be because, â€œit is not the way it used to beâ€ and it never will be again. Be unrestrained and leverage the wisdom of your past and the ways things used to be done to do things better today. Don’t live in your past, leverage the â€œthe pastâ€ to advance forward toward your big dream.
Restrained by Comfort
We get comfortable with our income, where we live our lifestyle, our current relationships. We fear that we will be uncomfortable. When you choose to Be Bodacious and pursue your Big Dreams you will be uncomfortable, so expect it don’t fear it.
Restrained by the Fear of Failure
To often we so fear failure that we remain where we are and decide to â€œplay it safeâ€. While we feel we are being safe, in reality we are failing to realize and act on our dreams.
Restrained by the Fear of Success
On the other hand there is a fear of success and the changes it will bring to our lives. We question that once we are successful can we “stay on top”, fearful of fading success.
Restrained by the Fear of the Unknown
There are many things that can go wrong when you pursue your Big Dream and no matter how much you prepare and plan the unknown will happen. The reality is tomorrow is an unknown and not pursuing your Big Dream will result in unknown consequences.
In Reality We Are Restrained By Ourselves!
