John D. Rockefeller stated in his book - Random Reminiscences of Men and Events -, “The man who starts out simply with the idea of getting rich won’t succeed; you must have a larger ambition.” He realized that succeeding in his goals could only happen through good old-fashioned hard work and a focused, burning desire to learn, grow and achieve—which requires drive.

The #1 thing that holds people back from achieving their goals is...fear

False Evidence Appearing Real (f.e.a.r.)

The fear of rejection, the fear of losing money, the fear of what others will think and even the fear of success.

For lack of a better word, magic begins once we can embrace the unknown by stepping outside our comfort zone. Only then can we truly have our breakthroughs.

Thank you for reading

Lack of knowledge..

No doubt, achieving success is hard work. It takes willpower and motivation to accomplish goals.

In other words, the more you demand of yourself (within reason, of course), the more you'll achieve.

Self doubt could be a major factor. Not believing in one self that they too can achieve their goals

Not taking the time to learn what needs to be learned. It takes time to build a business and there are steps you must learn in order to have success. Most people do not want to take the time it takes to build.

No consistency, not being unique and thinking out the box to achieve their goals.

Lack of focus and persistence! For many, if they don't have immediate success at something, they usually fall prey to the next new thing.

Usually is your lack off focus on one thing at a time.

I would say that the #1 thing that holds people back is 'Fear of rejection' as someone has mentioned. Fear stops people in their tracks making them feel like what they say or do will be ridiculed and torn apart by others. Sad but it happens.

The simple answer is,

The #1 thing that holds people back from achieving their goals is...not taking action.
