In sales and life you are constantly met with gatekeepers. Gatekeepers are those people or forces designed to keep you from your success, whatever that success may be.
Maybe you need to reach a new prospect and the assistant won’t let you through, or maybe you’re on the quest to loose weight and the chocolate cake is calling your name. Whatever the success desired, some obstacle or gatekeeper stands in your way.
Do you know who the real gatekeeper is though? It’s not who you think. Sure in sales it’s a person or voice mail system or some similar element. Those are easy to get past if you’re committed, persistent and creative. What about in the rest of your life? Who is the real gatekeeper?
The answer is identical whether for personal successes or sales and business successes. The real gatekeeper is YOU. You are the #1 person standing in the way to your success. You prevent you from getting ahead in every area of your life. Why?
Your mental state blocks you from taking the appropriate actions to succeed. You know what to do. The challenge is you don’t always do what you know. The pain of taking action is so great at times, that the pleasure of pushing it off and making excuses becomes too easy.
You self-sabotage, and all self-sabotage is mental. Your mindset is the real gatekeeper. Go to work on programming your mind to give you massive amounts of pleasure from taking all necessary actions. Read positive information. Write and review your goals daily. Surround yourself with people more successful than you.
Do whatever it takes to kill the real gatekeeper - your mental gatekeeper - and your life’s ambitions will start becoming your life’s successes.
