    My procrastination which totally zaps my motivation. I just can't stay on top of things enough to the point where I'm out of the habit of procrastination. I procrastinate so much that I get behind in writing, chores, and everything else, and then I end up getting overwhelmed and it's bye bye motivation!

    I don't like proving myself to people that think they are more important.

    However its only in their eyes that don't see my success.

    My fears. I have anxiety and panic attack issues. The pain and depression is just too much at times. It comes and goes. I will be okay for days, weeks even months then BAM! everything returns. This had kept me from branching out with my art, and my other creative skills, but more importantly, kept me from doing the things I know God wants me to do.

    Being nice. Giving tips to others on Internet related topics or web design or blog management topics, often for free, takes up a lot of time. Working from home means time is money - it may be rewarding, but during that time that I'm helping others I'm not earning any money.

    Undercharging clients.

    But if being nice keeps me from being successful, it's just something that I'll have to live with, because as much as I would like to be successful, I'm not changing who I am just to be successful.

      Teresa, that in itself is success. Integrity is (to me) one of those things that makes someone chronically successful simply because it is so hard to keep! So pat yourself on the back! Your integrity is your success!

    I believe that at various times in our lives we all experience self doubt and down times. We have to reach inside during these times and draw out the guts and determination to make for ourselves a better life and keep on trucking.

    In India my biggest weakness that has kept me from succeeding is my honesty.

      Like integrity, I wouldn't call honesty a weakness. In this day and age, if you can be honest most of the time, that is a success!

    My phlegmatic personality (cautious, take-it-easy, what's-the-rush? temperament).  By time I decide to act, it takes twice the effort.
