The ability to travel faster than the speed of light. Other than that and having unlimited wealth. I can do anything within reason.


Fear! I’m so afraid of taking a risk and falling on my face. I also want to say finances. It’s much easier to take risks when you have something to lean on should you not be successful.


Money mostly, followed by money and, last but not least, there's money...


Since I would like to be a full-time world traveler, I would say the biggest obstacle is money. 🙂


Not knowing the person I want to be. I have no idea.


The idea that I'm not worthwhile and will never be enough for anyone, so everyone will always leave. It holds me back from even trying to make friends, date, anything really.

You are worthwhile, just be enough for you right now. The rest will come later.


Money. I don't need a lot, just more than what I have. Scaping by here.


I don't think there is any obstacle other than what is between my ears. Mindset plays a large role in this and there are ways to modify mindset.

yes anxiety for me


An overactive brain and anxiety. If I had the recources or ability to hone or control it, I'd probably be crushing life right now.

@silvereyes I’m trying 🙂. My solace is that I’ve already improved so much.


Hmmmm, probably about 5 million dollars. Just kidding. I am exactly who I want to be, and having a limited imagination, I cannot imagine being anyone else. So, there you go...


The person that people think I am, and the fear of shattering that illusion.


I want to he The batmobile, batcave, batcopter. Utility belt and of course
Then I will be needing some arch enemies!!!


Myself. As an example I want to write a book but as much studying with how-to books and voracious reading I realized I was putting off the writing. The idea stays in my head. But in the past week I’ve realized if I do finish a piece it would expose who I am and that scares the shit out of me. I could make a fool out of myself. I’m always questioning myself.


A few million dollars. I'm pretty much who I want to be, I just can't do all the things I want to do.


My failing knees

@Scotttheshot And your laziness 🙂🙂🙂

@Jagga OUCH!


My mental health problems, lack of money, lack of transportation, and unstable living arrangements.


Money is certainly a factor, but I know exactly what holds me back, like so many others have said here - it's myself, and if I could tackle certain aspects of my personality, the lack of money wouldn't be as much of an issue. I have a fear of success and the responsibilities that come with it, I'm a procrastinator, I'm lazy (I'd rather spend my time binging on netflix or other guilty pleasures than be productive most of the time), and right now, my physical health is an issue. So...fix me, and I'm golden.

Interesting. Let's get together


Men. I have a bad habit of putting their needs above mine, but getting divorced and working on myself (with the help of my amazing therapist) has helped me remember who I am, and I wouldn't change a thing. I'm pretty thrilled that I can see and acknowledge red flags these days, and I can honestly say that I have the self-confidence to walk away when it's warranted.

Also, time. I have a love-hate relationship with my schedule, and while it keeps me financially stable, it's hard to reconcile that with my need for down time, social time, volunteer time, etc.


My son not being able to be here anymore, and my having to be.


Not being mature enough to overcome my bad habits.


Money, steady income.


Money is the Largest Obstacle Beacuse I feel guilty not being able to help people in my life that need me and need my help


Money. I need 15,946.327.58 Approx.

what if you had 15,946,327?

@btroje It would be okay. I'd borrow the rest.


I lack more money than I need, I can't help others as I want to. I know you can't solve a problem by throwing money at it, I would like to improve the living conditions of people who need help through no fault of their own.


Tough question. I don't have an answer as I can not imagine being someone else. I am generally comfortable with who I am and realize the smallest tweaking of a personality/intelligence/etc. trait would likely produce a cascade of other characteristic changes with unforeseen consequences.
