Information is not the obstacle

If I want to learn how to write a book I can find the information.
If I want to learn how to start a business I can find the information.
If I want to learn how to lose weight I can find the information.
 
The barrier to having each of these things is not informational, it’s always emotional.
 
Perhaps I know how to write a book, but I’m scared of putting myself out there. 
Perhaps I know how to start a business, but I’m afraid of what people will say if I fail.
Perhaps I know how to lose weight, but I turn to ice cream every time I feel sad. 
 
Solving the emotional side means the obstacle is removed and the information can be put into action. The obstacle is never informational.
