Contrary to popular belief, achieving your goals isn’t just about working harder… In fact, it can be one of the reasons you’re getting stuck! Below I’m going to share with you what really is keeping you stuck and what kept me stuck in the hopes to bring some awareness and insight to how you can break free of the blocks that are keeping you playing small! 

The blocks you are facing aren’t in the way, they are the way!”

This is something one of my amazing mentors @alyssanobriga says often, and I knew it at a conscious level, but I had never really felt it or understood it to the depth I feel I do now. 

To put it simply, when you face adversity, or something in your life that triggers you, or you feel is stopping you from getting the desired result or feeling you want… this is your block. 


For so long, I would fight these blocks, continuing to try and go around them, or in all honesty, a lot of the time run away from (hello procrastination) haha! But when I actually looked deeper, I realised that there was a message, wisdom that was trying to be communicated. They say ‘everything in life happens for a reason’ and whilst that is true, I believe that we play a role in our own destiny and now this makes more sense to me as to why. 

If we are resisting something we are only creating more resistance, this eventually leads to us creating a reality against this resistance, and therefore the reason that this happens. When we learn to embrace the block or the thing we are resisting instead of trying to fight it, it is actually the key to our freedom.

I’ll give you an example… I’ve always told myself the story or let myself believe that ‘I don’t have enough time’. Now without going into the metaphysical concept of the fact that time simply doesn’t exist and all we have is now, this story has always kept me stuck – a block. 

When I got curious, I wanted to see how this block was actually serving me. You see as humans we only continue to do something if it is supporting us in reaching our goals in some way. For me, I discovered that telling myself this story “I don’t have enough time” was motivating me to do my work, complete my tasks for the days, weeks and months. It was serving me, however it was also leading me down the path of burnout, because it was fueling the ‘hungry ghost’ of never enough time. 

When I was able to see first that this was a story keeping me blocked, and why it was still there, I was able to see how to get free of it, because the other part of me that wasn’t able to keep going and reminded me to take care of my health, also wanted the business to be a success. 

Ultimately, their goal was the same, but I needed to find a new way to achieve what I wanted that wouldn’t burn me out. So, that’s what I did… It actually turned out to be not me having to find more time to do more things, but actually looking at all I was doing and learning to delegate more, and rely more on my team 🙂


I share this lesson with you, because I hope it sheds some insight on how you could have something blocking you from achieving your goals, but really it is a matter of looking deeper at the wisdom inside this block and seeing what it truly desires for you and how you can meet that desire but in a way that is going to be much more healthier and bring you much more happiness. 

So your homework (if you are still with me), is to get still… look at where you are feeling blocked, then ask yourself, what story am I telling myself about this and then see what wisdom comes through. The beautiful thing is, you have everything you need inside of you. 

Aaaaaand…. If you get stuck, my inbox and DMs are always open! I would love to help support you through this and in achieving your goals! 

Yours in Health & Happiness,
