What Stops Progression And Limits Effectiveness?

We all want progression. We all want to work to our maximum effectiveness. At least I hope so. With 2009 literally within touching distance I am trying to discover what it is that stops us from making the progress we desire.

I think we were created to progress, to move forward.

So here are some questions that I am mulling over at the moment…
What stops people from progressing and building a successful life?
Are there certain things that we allow to get attached to us?
Stuff that distracts, holds us back, limits our effectiveness?

Spread the word, get your colleagues, friends & family involved. Would love some feedback from everyone who read this….
