Everybody has their own definition of success.
At some point, we all want to be that definition of success.
Yet, most of the time, we don’t get to hit our deadlines and achieve our goals.
Even though we put our best foot forward, we just seem to be stuck, blocked at a particular stage in life and limited by specific beliefs.
Wondering what are the self-limiting beliefs that are hindering personal success?
1. You don’t know who you are
When you don’t know who you are, it’s difficult to know where you are going and why you are going.
You tend to focus on everyone else and monitor what they are doing.
When you don’t who you are, you are easily threatened by others.
You may easily be jealous or constantly compete and compare yourself with others.
You may project on other people to avoid having to deal with yourself or get to know yourself.
2. You don’t think that you can do it
You may think that you’re not enough, that you don’t have the proper skills, or that you don’t have what it takes.
If you believe that you can’t, then won’t.
If you believe that you can, then you will.
3. You don’t take responsibility your life
Now, that’s a hard one.
Some people go through life blaming others for their shortcomings or for their failures.
However, blaming others is short-lived and doesn’t get anything done.
Taking responsibility for your life means taking control of your life.
It means managing your decisions, your actions, your thoughts and the people you allow in your space.
Taking responsibility for your life is difficult at first but gratifying in the long run.
4. You don’t care to learn
Learning helps your mind evolve and see new perspectives.
If you stop learning, you stop growing.
There isn’t just one way to learn.
You can search the internet, watch movies, listen to audio books.
However, reading is the quickest way to acquire the most knowledge in a short period of time.
5. You favor your comfort zones
Maybe you don’t like to try new things…
Maybe you just like the company of your 3 friends or 3 cats or your parents…
Maybe you just don’t like being bothered…
Nothing wrong with that but by doing that you don’t evolve, you stay in the same frame of mind, within the same circle, acting out the same behaviour, living out the same patterns that have kept you in the same spot.
6. You lack vision or an objective
Without a solid vision or objective, there is no plan.
Without a plan, there is no action.
Without action, you will unfortunately end up in the same place.
7. You procrastinate
Procrastinating is different from taking a break or going on a holiday.
Procrastinating can go from doing nothing to keeping busy in one area to avoid getting to the important goals.
Working on your goals is a choice.
8. You give up when you are closer to success
People often quitting sound like something only losers do.
But winners quit too: they quit things that are unhealthy for them, that aren’t improving their lifestyle and that are diverting them from their goals.
However, if what you’ve been doing isn’t degrading your lifestyle and is perfectly aligned with your goals, you might be giving up too soon.
You are always closer than you think to reaching your goals.
