In many cases, overcoming obstacles is all about progression. Having a growth mindset means that you’re willing and able to learn from your mistakes, accept challenges and accept constructive criticism from others. No one likes to be told what they are doing wrong but people who care about you will be very honest. Now, let’s take a closer look at these obstacles that you may or may not be facing below:

1. Negative Thinking

If you feel like you’re constantly being bombarded by negative self-chatter, don’t worry — you’re not the only one. The problem with negative thinking is that our negative thoughts can very quickly turn into limiting beliefs. In order to overcome your negative thinking, you’ll need to reframe your thoughts. For example, instead of thinking: “I’m not smart enough,” you might think: “I’m smart, but there’s always more to learn.”

2. Fear of Failure

This is a big one. Obviously, no one wants to fail, but the fear of failure can really hold you back from achieving your goals. In general, someone with a fixed mindset (rather than a growth mindset) would rather not try at all than face failure. Instead of fearing failure, you must learn to embrace your failures as opportunities to learn. If you don’t try, you’ll never know. You know?

3.Unrealistic Expectations

The problem with setting unrealistic expectations is that you’ll likely feel defeated if you don’t end up reaching your goals which often causes people to give up. Giving up should never be an option. Set realistic goals for yourself. Start with short term goals and gradually move to long term goals. After each milestone, reward yourself. This will allow you stay on track.


You have the potential to do anything you desire if you have a positive mindset, set realistic expections for yourself and move assertively. There is nothing to fear. You have everthing you need right at your fingertips. buy you must believe in yourself.
