Talking to both Montessori parents and business associates I have narrowed down the top three biggest obstacles to success that I’ve heard they faced. See which of these three obstacles to success most matches up to you and your personal situation. (Maybe you’re facing more than one of them!) The funny thing is that these apply to life, homeschooling and business.
Obstacle to Success 1 : Isolation:
The first obstacle to success is the obstacle of trying to do it all on your own, without input from others and without a community that has a vested interest in your success. Not having a peer group with whom you can openly share challenges, brainstorm ideas, leverage contacts and skills, or celebrate successes with is a great disadvantage and a drain on you.
As you can imagine this really makes it difficult for you to enjoy the level of success, connection, and freedom that you know in your heart of hearts you can attain. Alone you are vulnerable and will never reach your fullest potential, besides doing your child a disservice.
If you aren’t able to do this, you’ll always struggle and won’t ever be able to reach the highest level that you are capable of.
