Hi, I’m Stacey O’Byrne, and I get to hang out with successful entrepreneurs, business owners, sales professionals, and some of the top business influencers and thought leaders in the world. You see, I believe that it’s important to learn the art and science of how to sell without selling, and that’s the only way to achieve six and seven figure success. So, if you want to be a success magnet, attract quality people in your network, and significantly increase your sales and ultimately your success, then you’re in the right place, because this is the Sell Without Selling podcast.

I am so excited to get into today’s topic. And really quick, if you are a business owner, entrepreneur, or sales professional, and you haven’t hit the level of success that you wanted or needed, or if you’re stuck and needing a pivot in your business, in your success – or you just want more, and you understand the importance of having a coach, being accountable to help identify the blind spots, increase accountability, and help with success strategies to take you, your business, your income, and your success to the next level – if this sounds like something for you, then head over to There’s a quick application there that will lead to a personal phone call with me to see if we’re a great fit for each other.

Okay, let’s get into today’s topic – the 11 Success Blockers. So in my opinion, it’s really important if you are pursuing success, if you want to increase uplevel yourself, increase your success, increase your income, make a greater impact, have a greater impact, it’s really important to have an understanding – if you’re a business owner, entrepreneur, sales professional, if you’re self-directed, self-disciplined – it’s really impossible to understand what obstacles exist out there that can potentially block you from achieving what it is you’ve always wanted to achieve, what you’ve always desired, dreamed of, and know without a shadow of a doubt you deserve. So I’ve put together a list of 11 different potential success blockers.

So let’s talk about them. Blocker #1 are beliefs. Whether they are limiting beliefs or whether you’re buying into old cliches, or old sayings. Either way – Jim Rome had said once, “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right either way.” Right? So reality is what type of beliefs exist within you. When you think about pursuing what it is you want to pursue, when you think about making the kind of money that you’ve wanted to make, or making the kind of impact that you’ve always desired and dreamed of, what happens? Seriously. Do me a favor, write down really quick how much you want to make in 2020, how much you want to end the year. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
