Success can seem like a great mystery – some people are destined for it while others aren’t. But that’s probably not the case. While luck and genetics may play a role, there are certain behaviors you need to drop which will make success more likely. Read on to find what these are…..
You are afraid, plain and simple. Afraid of looking silly. Afraid of what your friends and family will say. Afraid of everything! Look, you’re either going to stop being afraid, or you’re not. Nobody can convince you to stop. Imagine though….. What awaits you when you stop with the fear excuses?
There’s no easy way to put this. Every single successful person works their butts off to get where they are. It’s ok to be lazy. Just admit it. But don’t whine about not being rich and successful, ok?
You may not realize it, but the people you associate with might be negative and holding you back. They could also be soul-sucking beings who don’t want anyone to be successful. Get rid of them, now! Surround yourself with successful people. People you want to be like.
4. No Goals
You plan nothing. You believe that someway, somehow, everything you always wanted will just magically happen. So you “play it by ear” and wait. You need goals to shoot for. Otherwise, you’re just treading water.
5. Time Wastage
You are a classic-time waster. You spend hours and hours every day working on not-working. You do things that aren’t productive. How are you going to get anything done, or reach any goal if you keep wasting time? You’re not. So you might as well give up now if you’re going to keep this path.
6. Think Small
You think way too small. You are constantly looking only a day or a week ahead instead of years ahead. Because of this, you never get anywhere and you never lead; you always follow.
7. Don’t Believe
You never believed that it’s possible. Society taught you that only a few “exceptional” people get what they want. Everyone else should just settle. If you really want to believe that, go ahead. The rest of us will be at the front of the line because we believe.
8. Don’t Want It
Probably you don’t really want to be successful. Sure, you like to dream about it like everyone else. But in your heart you are afraid of what might happen if you really get it. Success is change, and it feels really, really good.
There’s no “they”. There’s no secret group of people that controls your success or failure. You’ve made that up to make you feel better about yourself. The truth is you, and you alone, control your success in life, business, everything!
10. No “X” Factor
You can’t do it because you’re not pretty enough? Or don’t have a strong personality? You don’t have the “X” factor? Wow, what an unbelievably lame excuse. The truth is even jerks, idiots and boring people can be just as successful as anyone else. Your problem is you don’t believe it yet.
