5 Things That May Be Holding You Back From Success

Hey Success Magnet!

It's Christina Dukes, The Success Manifestation Coach.

As a Chicago based business and branding strategist and Law of Attraction Coach, it has become my life journey to help executives and entrepreneurs build powerful high-end brands that get them noticed, get them booked, and get them paid.


If you ready my last blog post I talked about 5 Signs That You will be Successful. I got so many messages from people that I have seen these signs in my life, but I am still struggling to attract success. Now, I am sharing 5 things that may be holding you back from success.

5 Things That May Be Holding You Back From Success

1. Your mindset.

Mindset is one of the most important ingredients in the recipe for success. You must believe you have the capacity to be successful and that you are successful right now.

I get it as an entrepreneurs, I used to go through a roller coaster of emotions because I didn't have a plan on how to constantly nourish my mindset.

Thinking positive isn't a moment, it's a lifestyle.

Incorporating things like meditation, self-care, therapy, or having a coach are good healthy ways to keep your mindset in check for success.

2. Your environment.

I don't know how to say this but, "is your room clean"? Did you know people tend to be more productive when their environments are organized and clean. Even dogs like their environments clean. When it comes to your life you should definitely have systems and processes. It just makes things easier.

I always say clutter creates chaos and clarity creates cash. So get your environment together. When your home and work space are clean and organized, it can help you be more productive. And productivity leads to success.

If you don't have a system in place to handle success, I suggest getting started today.

3. Your family/friends.

Just as Jesus left his family and found his 12 disciples, sometimes you have to evaluate who you surround yourself with and is a positive or negative connection.

Then, you must go into the world and the universe and find your tribe. Being able to separate your inner circle from associations is very critical when it comes to creating and sustaining success in your life.

As Mama always says, "everybody ain't your friend.

4. Your lack of skill-set.

If you want to be a world renowned transformational coach, go get your Coaching Certification. Think about it this way. The reason why most of us go to college is because of the return on investment concept.

How many people do you know with thousands of dollars in student loans?

If you picked a good major or concentration then you are probably doing pretty well in your field right now. So taking on student loans was totally worth it to learn a skill-set and make top dollar in your field.

If you really want to be successful consider investing in your skill-set, so you can become the best at what you do.

5. You're a dreamer and not a doer.

As a success coach I can't tell you how many people I meet who have dreams, because there are so many. But what differentiates these people with dreams are those who have taken action to develop these dreams, even if that means writing it down in their notebook or putting it on their vision board.

If you want to be successful, you must be a doer.


It's the perfect jumpstart you need on your abundance journey.
