How To Overcome Any Obstacle

Ever get burned out chasing your goals?

Ever felt like you were never going to “get there”?

That you weren’t “strong enough”?

That you didn’t have enough “will power”?

I know I have.

Honestly, it’s discouraging.

You work hard. You put in the hours and slave away through the unnoticed and unappreciated work in the HOPE that you’ll actually break through.

It’s tough to say the least, amiright?

I remember back when I was just learning how to build a website for the first time.

This was in the time long before drag & drop builders were everywhere – you actually had to know how to code.

I was just figuring out my way around things, and it was TOUGH.

I remember one day where I was literally ready to throw my old CRT monitor across the room – literally – I was so frustrated!

I got inspired looking at the amazing work that other designers and developers were doing but I wondered if I was EVER going to get to the point where I could create that kind of stuff myself.

It felt like it was so far off in the distant future that i was never going to get there.

Then I looked down at the crib sitting by my desk in my office. Inside that crib was a baby girl who was absolutely the delight of my heart, just months old at this point.

It was then that I realized WHY I was doing what I was doing.

My frustration wasn’t completely gone. Learning new stuff takes work.

But looking at that little face I was reminded why I was stepping out on this path.

I remembered feeling the surge of determination and desire as I thought about the life that I wanted to provide for that lil’ girl.

It was enough.

The fire was stoked again and it was raging.

The problem is we get so caught up in the small details of what we’re doing sometimes that we lose sight of our “why”.

And if we lose the reason behind why we do what we do, then our motivation to push through when the times get tough will die.

Same thing goes if our “why” isn’t big enough.

You see, it can’t be just about “maximizing income”.

Money is great – don’t get me wrong.

But if that’s going to be your motivation then the REASON you want that money has to be enough to push you hard. Maybe it’s to get out of debt.

Maybe it’s to put your kids into that school you want them to attend.

Maybe it’s because you finally want to be FREE from a traditional J.O.B.

Whatever it is you have to have a big enough why to overcome the obstacles, because otherwise, you’re going to give up.

You’re going to throw in the towel when things get hard.

It’s also the main reason that I teach this to my students in depth in the Agency Hackers Academy.

Because without that solid “why” foundation the hard work becomes too hard.

The early morning hours become too early.

The work becomes too much.

And you lose faith.

But when the “why” is big enough you can overcome just about any “how”.

That little girl who used to sit by me sleep in her crib just turned 15 and she’s still with me in the office. She’s the one in the pic below.

Since then:

  • I’ve several won awards for my work
  • built all kinds of crazy stuff I NEVER even conceived I’d be able to build
  • earned *hundreds of thousands of dollars* designing & building digital projects for my amazing customers and clients.

If you’ve ever been there, hit me up in the comments below.

Tell me about your “why”, and how you overcome obstacles in your path.

Let’s encourage each other so we can all see that we’re never in this thing alone!
