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.

AFRAID OF SUCCESS? HERE IS HOW TO AWARE OF THIS FEAR AND HOW TO CONQUER IT!
All crave success, and virtually everyone wants to succeed. However, there is a major obstacle many faces when pursuing success — FEAR!
Fear can be described as a two-edged sword that can propel one for success at the same time it can be an instrument for one’s downfall or failure. Today we will be looking at a few things that might be responsible for your fears and active steps to be taken to conquer them all.
Have you experienced the feeling that you get when you see a successful person, that feeling of wanting to be like them? where you judgmental on how they achieved their success?
That feeling is normal but one thing I realized from years of analyzing success is that many tell their success stories as a journey of being relentless, countless hours of unseen hard work, and consistency. Successful people take the bull by the horn and work towards achieving success. Success is usually never given on a platter of gold; it is something you work towards every single day.
REASONS WHY YOU ARE AFRAID
Fear of judgments: Most of the times our opinions about how others achieved their success become the root of our fears. The negativity in your judgments of others success has been what in one way or another affecting us. This simple key means that the thought of being judged the same way we judge others forms the basis of our fear of success. Therefore it is advised we jubilate and celebrate with others in success because surely one good turn deserves another. This is the key to conquering this particular fear.
Fear of pressure: Sometimes we are faced with the pressure from family and friends of having to impress every time they come around. The fear and pressure can be intense that happiness leaves you, increased anxiety, and low esteem which is one of the major factors that contributes to failure. Hardly do you achieve success in a hurry or under pressure. To conquer this fear simply do yourself the favor of appreciating your little efforts and little success as this boosts your chances of achieving great things. Tell yourself there is no good in rushing, after all, the popular saying goes thus: anything worth doing is worth doing well.
Fear of failure: No one likes to fail. Failure has no friends. Nobody identifies with failure, Due to this, the fear of failure remains deep in everyone’s heart even in the so-called successful ones. The fear that they might one day be pushed out of the top, therefore they do everything in their power to see that they maintain the number one spot. Statistics has it that the chances of failure are greater than chances of success but that notwithstanding success is still possible if only you can work towards it. Conquering this particular fear is straightforward, all you have to do is channel your positive energy towards what you have in mind to achieve rather than having thoughts you will fail. You are not a failure you are a conqueror.
Did you enjoy reading this brief article on you fear and how to conquer them? I do hope you found a couple of insights and find the courage to unmask the champion within. Please share this article.
Life should be free from limitations that can hinder your potential to succeed!
Creating limits can cause barriers that will influence your levels of success in your personal life and at work. Assume your life is on a freeway, you cannot stay in one spot, and you must keep moving forward.
This might go against all you have ever known while growing up but the truth is, human lives are not governed by any defined limits. This means you can become an over achiever and at this height of success, there will still be numerous avenues for growth yet to be explored.
The scientists have told us that we will only use a small fraction of our brains capacities all through our lives, this might be true but I am sure that with the breakthroughs and innovations we are currently witnessing in the world, a lot of brain power is being exerted towards achieving the unthinkable.
These remarkable achievements and unbelievable breakthrough happen because the people behind them did not entertain the thoughts of any limitation to what they could achieve, they were dedicated enough to work very hard to achieve their goals.
These words- hard work and dedication have frequently been used by people who have gone on to achieve great things worthy of global commendation. This simply means that success is right within your grasp if only you can apply the principles behind these words.
There is no time limit to dictate when you will eventually achieve your goals, but what is certain is that with hard work and dedication, you will surely make it in every way. The following 5 methods of finding success have been scientifically proven to work if they are carried out the right way. Grab a pen and take important notes because you are about to read some life changing tips that will make you a better and happier person.
1. You still got limits?
There are many examples to show that human beings have refused to acknowledge that they should consider limitations in anything they do. We see many instances where people are constantly pushing themselves beyond the expected limits to achieve greater things. If you have ever watched the Paralympics you will know that limitation only exist in our minds, when you see what physically disabled people are able to achieve just by sheer hard work and belief in their abilities.
You create boundaries when you set limitations in your life, a mental reminder will not fail to alert you that it is time to quit when you attain the point of limit that has been pre-acknowledged. The sad part is that you could have continued effortlessly if you had not set any limits.
2. Get out of your comfort zone
This is a commonly used phrase and I am happy it is that popular because many people don’t even realize what their comfort zone is and how it has limited them in many ways.
Your comfort zone is allowing yourself to perform just within the limits you are comfortable with, an extent that requires no extra sacrifice from you. Comfort zones are limiting zones, no one who operates within their comfort zone ever achieves anything meaningful because greater achievements in the same field will be revealed by people who worked harder.
Set new limits, if you initially swam 3 laps, try swimming 5 the next time. Not only will you realize you were able to do this but you will find out it will become an easy achievement with constant practice. Then you can set new limits to push yourself further.
Some easy tips to step out of your comfort zone include, set goals to learn something new about your career or interests every day.
3. Get Laser-Focused!
The intensity of your focus on achieving your goals will ultimately determine how well you will succeed. A disciplined and focused mind will not be distracted from chasing a goal; distraction can lead to waste of time and an unfortunate case of derailing from the path of achieving your goals.
What you can do about this is to start now. It is wonderful to know that consistent practice can help you develop a focused mind. Do you have a goal? Start by focusing your mind on doing something that will bring you closer to achieving this goal every day.
4. It’s about adopting a health and productive routine
There are many productive and healthy activities you can adopt that will complement the effort your mind and body will exert while you focus on achieving your goals.
Good sleep will aid your mind, and keep you healthy. Health challenges can be a big distraction from you goals so you have to stay healthy. A balanced diet will also supply the necessary nutrients your body and brain needs to function properly.
To achieve anything that is worthy of an accolade, you need a sound and alert mind, this means staying away from drugs and alcohol. Never compromise good sleep and a healthy diet also takes time to play.
5. Schedule time for yourself!
Remember that you are human; you might not have all the answers every time. It is a good idea to take a break when it feels like you are not in the mood to push your mind. At this state, you might just become frustrated so take a break. Do something else for fun, go out with friends. You will find out that your mind will be refreshed and ready to be pushed when you return back to your work.
This necessary distraction helps if you can do it in a controlled way.
Nothing really worthwhile comes easy. There is always a level of sacrifice you have to pay to enjoy remarkable rewards. The secret is to believe in your dreams, never accommodate the thought of failure. You will never fail when you have the right information so seek the right information, always be learning new things.
Hard work and focus will get you right to the door of success; even then you will still need to overcome any limitations to go through the door of success.

Working in Silence is always best especially when you’re trying to get to where you need to be. When you work quietly and say nothing about what’s intended to happen next, people wonder and stick around for the anticipation. You never want to give too much of what you’re doing as doing so only leads to people congratulating you even before you have done the REAL WORK.. When opportunities are given to you, keep them to yourself until they’ve been executed. It’s always a good thing for others to know what you’re doing but just because you don’t post about it right away like everyone else doesn’t mean you’re not doing as much as they’re doing, you’re just smart about your decisions.
Working in silence can be one of the best decisions you could ever make just because it makes people wonder about what you’re up to a lot more rather then just letting them know every single move! Keep it to yourself and let others enjoy the ride of anticipation while you surprise them every so often. There’s nothing better than getting ready to launch all of your ideas and no one had a clue what you were up to, people will think you’re not doing anything but in reality have tricks up your sleeve about the next greatest move.
Always work hard in silence and let your success make all the noise.
