What stops you from living the life God destined for you?

By Teppie Chartomatsidis

Are you deep down unfulfilled with how life has been for you so far? Do you bicker and complain about the quality of your life? The truth is so many of us are so caught up with the responsibilities of living that we never stop to ask ourselves what we want in life.

We are too busy working to pay off the car, the rent and all of life’s other expenses. So many people think this is all that life can offer. So many people are not living the life that they want. Most people out there are settling for less when they can get more out of life. Are you one of them?

So, what are some of the main reasons why so many people are not living the life that they truly want and what God has destined for them?

Here are several reasons:

Following the masses

Most people in society are used to following what the majority of others do. This is part of our human nature. Due to the fact that the majority of the population are living a monotonous existence working from 9 to 5 and barely making it by; we seem to think that’s the way life is supposed to be. So we passively accept that our lives should be miserable and unfulfilling. This is not the case though! You can step out of the box and refuse to live your life this way. You don’t have to live life dictated by the herd. It’s ultimately up to your decision though.

Low frustration tolerance

So many people are not living a happy life because they give up on their dreams too easily. Maybe you have tried to accomplish your dream and met with an unexpected setback or failure. Because of this failure you have come to believe that you are not meant to succeed in life. This is wrong. Sometimes we have to try several times until we finally attain our dream. You have to cultivate a high frustration tolerance towards temporary failures in order to get anything you want in life. You can’t just give up after your first failed attempt!


So many are stopped from living the life of their dreams because of fear. This invincible enemy in your mind can destroy your chances of ever enjoying our life. The Bible clearly tells us " For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." 

Unfortunately so many people suffer from many fears - among the most popular ones are fear of failure, fear of success and fear of getting out of the comfort zone. If you let fear get in between you and your dream, then they you never experience happiness. If you want to live a happy life then you have to gather the courage to face your fear and conquer it.

Warped beliefs

Many people have formed false beliefs about life and these wrong beliefs stop them from achieving happiness. They may argue “life is unfair’, “I don’t deserve to be blessed” or “life is supposed to be tough.” People may think so negatively because they have been brought up to think like this or may use it as an excuse not to get out of the comfort zone and do something they would consider uncomfortable in order to pursue their dreams.

In short, if you expose and conquer what stops you from living the life that you want than you will truly become an unstoppable person. Your dreams that were once impossible in your mind will seem like achievable goals for you. You will become a person of determination and excellence that will never again allow anything to get in the way between you and your dreams.
