LIFE CAN REALLY SUCK!
Whatever we spend the most effort and time on gives yourself the highest chance of achieving it. Our minds are such a powerful weapon which we can either use to our advantage or for our destruction. It is what we think that we become in reality, this means that we become our thoughts.
Therefore our thoughts might be the sole reason why you might not be successful at what you do right now, so you need to own it up now that it has been your thoughts that are holding you back.
Thoughts are just one reason why you are not winning yet. Therefore I made a list of 6 reasons which might be the backbone of your current failure.
1. You Keep Looking At The Negatives.
Not being optimistic can kill and ruin your whole effort towards winning. Your inability to look beyond what you see has been hindering you from making progress. You have to look beyond what you see, look past your obstacles and hindrances and focus clearly on that goal you are about achieving. Assure yourself from time to time that your success is sure. The moment you start thinking negatively about the things life has to offer, how unfair it has been so far you will just be depriving yourself of achieving your dreams.
Successful people don’t let the thoughts of negative things control them they create an enabling environment in their heads to be able to see the world they are to create In the future. Be conscious of your thoughts, they become a reality, be positive in your thinking.
2. You are only playing for the sake of playing without your eyes on the prize.
Socrates said that an unexamined life is not worth living. Living a life without purpose, a life without much reflection, a life without a plan has been the most contributing factor to people’s failure. Every man on earth has to search out his purpose of being in the land if not he/she will just be living like the birds. A principled man with a clear plan in life does not follow the trend; he creates his path to follow.
A situation of an unexamined life is a total disaster, how can an individual who strives to succeed in the banking sector instead of attending a business seminar, chooses to party excessively. Such a person will never succeed unless he/she changes the mindset and sets his eyes on achieving his plan here on earth.
Self-discovery is key to making sure you are not just playing to play. The moment you discover your purpose in life and make a decision to achieve the success you will be on your way to win. But you have to step out of your comfort zone, nothing good comes easy they say. Therefore laziness is out of the question, for now, work out of the average and strive to get better at what you do.
You have to take time and examine the life you are living, ask yourself:
what I am doing right now, am I good at it?
Is it what I should be doing right now?
At this stage in my life, what is holding me back?
What can I do to better my situation?
Only when you answer these questions, will you be able to make progress. Remember if you plan to succeed you have designed to fail.
3. You Lack Follow Through
Procrastination is the bedrock of failure. Unsuccessful people have one thing in common which is procrastination. When you don’t make that choice to take actions towards achieving your dreams, you are bound to fail. To avoid failure, you have to take up the responsibility and be committed to whatever you do.
You will never be successful if you don’t follow one cause and see it to success. You have to take up one thing and do it until the point of success. Don’t be the jack of all trade and master of none.
4. You keep dangerous and untrustworthy friends
Show me your friends, and I will tell you who you are. Wrong people in your life might be what has been part of why you are not winning. If you discover people that you call your friends are not friendly to your goals and hinder your success why do you still keep them?
As long as you keep individuals that hinder your success around you will likely not be successful. Stop spending time with wrong people rather, mingle with people who share the same dream with you and will help you achieve it. If a close family of yours that you can’t cut ties completely then limit how much time you give to them. If you do this, then you will win and will always be on top of your game.
5. You desire shortcuts to success.
All desire heaven, but only a few are willing to work and die to make it to that heaven. The same applies to success and winning in many spheres of life. People desire success but few are ready to work and wait to reap the fruits of hard work. Many want to find the easiest way or shortcut to make it in life, but that is not how it works. If you want to stay winning you simply have to work towards it and be patient enough and consistent till your effort pays off. Those who take the shortcut to success typically end up at the same spot they took up from and will continue in that cycle till they decide to do the right thing – WORK HARD!
6. You wake up looking for pain and problems
Don’t wake up in the morning always expecting bad things to happen, or having a negative feeling that you will not achieve anything today.
Please learn to be positive when you wake up in the morning.Tell yourself that today is going to be a good day, Asure yourself that ou will achieve great things today. Love what you do and go out to work towards achieving set goals.
