    What Human Pattern Is Holding You Back? By Ann Marie Lawrence

    What Human Pattern Is Holding You Back? By Ann Marie Lawrence

    People have so many patterns they follow which hold them back from succeeding! I am not here to call you out on your “bad” patterns, but I am here to help you identify them so we can acknowledge and move forward. 

    Which of these patterns is holding you back?

    1. Putting others first and yourself last. When you do this, you lack the ability to give to others around your full potential! If your cup is empty, you can’t fill anyone else’s.

    2. Controlling others. Focusing everything on other people and trying to perfect them before you have even started working on yourself. Note: Don’t be a hypocrite.

    3. Assuming the worst. The reoccurrence of negative thoughts brings consistent anxiety in your life leaving you unable to grow. 

    4. Playing small. You’re not living up to your true potential!

    5. Perfectionism. The socially acceptable form of procrastination that we regard as high standards. Note: TAKE ACTION! Making imperfect progress is better than doing nothing at all with the obsession of "perfection" holding you back.

    6. Doubting your higher wisdom, heart, or your intuition. Our intuition knows best, although our primal mind thinks it's unsafe. When you aren’t taking risks, you kill your soul! Take uncertain action everyday! Do something that scares you everyday. 

    7. Addiction. Anything that is negatively taking time away from your purpose. Addiction and obsession are two very different things. Know the difference! This is distracting you from your true potential.

    8. Procrastination: not taking the actions you know you need to because you’re SCARED. Scared of either failure OR success.

    9. Toxicity. Holding on to anything that doesn’t serve you!

    10. Need for approval or acceptance from your peers and family; most likely fear of isolation.

    Identify your old “bad" patterns and begin to make a shift! YOU are responsible for your results in life.

    Tips to Boost Your Mood with Team ICON Member April Imholte
    I would venture to guess that most of us feel pretty amazing when we are taking care of our bodies and allowing time for some R&R. Unfortunately the busyness of life can sometimes overtake prioritizing what we need most. Stress consumes our days, which in turn can lead to a decrease in mood and energy. If you find yourself struggling, here are just a few natural ways to boost your mood and overall well being.

    Todd Talks: Mindset Is Everything!

    Todd Talks: Mindset Is Everything!

    Mindset is Everything!

    Success is a climb. It’s a journey. It’s a lifelong pursuit and built with unpredictable ups and downs...Mindset is everything!!  The “experts” tell us this and it is true!!

    Your mindset is the beliefs you carry in your head about you and your abilities and this will determine how far you go in life. If you believe you are born to struggle, you will be suspicious of anything offering you any opportunity to stop struggling. You will feel completely justified in holding yourself back because your mind is okay thinking it is normal to struggle.

    You can think about success as a flowing river. The struggle part is you getting to the riverbank. Dealing with obstacles; mean people, defeat, anger, sadness and despair happens when you are walking to the river of success. When you get to the flowing river of success you have two decisions that you can make.

    First, you must decide if you are going to jump into the river or keep on fighting and struggling. This might take some people a long time to decide because they have been raised to believe that struggle was the only way to live! Habitual thinking can be hard to let go of sometimes.

    Then you jump into the river you have another decision to make 🤷‍♂️ You have to choose between the struggle of swimming upstream or allowing yourself to flow downstream to continued success in other ventures.

    Struggling upstream matches many folks learned behavior of obtaining success. Flowing downstream means you no longer need to struggle for success. You would already be in the flow.

    The biggest problem is that for many, we’re taught that this decision is a moral choice instead of a pragmatic one. We do have a choice. Swim upstream and continue to struggle or flow downstream and enjoy the ease of life.

    Change involves making new choices.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Not everyone is the same and all paths are open without recrimination. The real deal is that you don’t need to continue to struggle unless you want to...👈😉

    Many start their journey with pie-in-the-sky, smooth-road ideals, yet, success is rarely, if ever, that type of journey.

    Be relentless, be resilient and never quit!
