The BIG 7 Reasons You're Not Living Up to Your Potential

Updated: Feb 24

And you're not alone...

Research says that 92% of people never reach their full potential. And 80% of people agree they have enormous untapped potential.*

What's going on? Why are so many people not realizing the life they really want?

Well, as it turns out, there is an awful lot standing in the way of anyone with big goals and dreams for themselves. And in doing my own research, I've boiled it down to 7 of the most important factors.

  1. FEAR: Fear of failing, fear of not living up to expectations, fear of rejection.

  2. LOW DESIRE TO LEAVE COMFORT ZONES: Not willing to feel uncomfortable.

  3. NEGATIVE SELF TALK: Self criticism, and lack of self belief and low self esteem

  4. EXTERNAL INFLUENCES: Society, family, cultural pressures

  5. LACK OF CLARITY & PLANNING: Not having a vision or a roadmap

  6. LIMITED RESOURCES: Lack of education, money, geographic location etc

  7. LACK OF SELF AWARENESS: Low self observation and understanding of your limitations and your true potential.

I know, it sounds like a lot. But the good news is when you know what stops you, you can finally become conscious to where you go off track and why. And I'll share that I can identify with all seven of the above reasons! The great news is that all of it is solvable. ALL OF IT.

The question is, how much do you want to live a greater life, doing more of what you love to do and reaching new heights? How willing are you to overcome all the 'stuff' that stands in your way? How willing are you to change?
