Wondering what are the 8 things stopping you from success?
What is Success?
Success is something everyone strives for and understandably so.
Often, we have seen people go above and beyond to get what they want, but somehow they end up getting nothing, at least what was aimed at.
In this article, we will look into some of the reasons why they don’t get what they have in mind. We will also be discussing at length at what point they are going wrong.
What exactly is stopping them from reaching greater heights?
Below are the reasons why you are not achieving success and the key to self-awareness.
1. That laid back attitude towards your goals
Being lackadaisical towards your goal will never get you to your goal.
A goal should be thoroughly worked upon and you must have an enthusiastic mindset when working on it.
Indeed, being more than casual about it may harm the probability of success.
In addition, procrastination will become a slow poison.
2. Going after everything and not being specific about your goals
Many people run after every possible field, hoping to secure a position in one of these fields.
However, chasing multiple things simultaneously linked with your interests will only make things worse for you instead of getting you closer to your dreams.
Instead of going after literally every other stream — which is the problem with most people, it becomes important to set your heart on the thing that interests you the most.
Furthermore, people end up following the crowd and somehow don’t realize that they will work more diligently if their goal is in their interest and of their best interest.
3. Not laying out things clearly
Without having things laid out vividly in your mind, planning things out and then working on them accordingly, you won’t be able to achieve anything.
One of the reasons why you are not succeeding is due to the fact that things getting muddled up in your mind.
This way, you’ll have everything right in front of your eyes and you would know how you can go about it.
4. Not trusting yourself enough
Even if you are indulging yourself in something that doesn’t require any planning or execution, trusting yourself will play a major role.
Nothing can be accomplished if you don’t have faith in yourself.
Once you have the mindset that “Yes, I can become so and so because I trust myself that I can do it,” you’ll move a step closer to your dream.
It’s quite OK if you have a fear of failure. You must understand what is the cause of atychiphobia and overcome it.
5. Being dubious about everything
Another reason that pulls you back from your goal is having a doubtful approach to everything: being dubious about your set goals but also having some nagging doubts about yourself.
If you are constantly in doubt whether the field you have chosen is right for you or not, whether you will be able to push yourself that high or not, all these doubts contribute to you not getting anywhere around your goals.
By now, you must have already figured out how being dubious and not having faith in yourself are closely linked.
6. Being hard on yourself and not giving yourself a rest
No matter how hard you are on yourself, if the set goals aren’t meant to be, they just won’t happen.
Part of the reason behind your unsuccessful attempts is you knocking yourself out and not giving yourself enough rest that your mind and body require.
Your subconscious is stronger than any obstacles but you must learn how to calibrate your subconscious.
7. Pulling excuses
This deserves to have a whole point dedicated to it.
One of the major reasons why you constantly fail is making excuses.
Blaming others for your failure and not getting an inch closer to your goal need to be dropped out of your habits.
“Excuses will always be there for you. Opportunity won’t.”
8. Not getting out of your comfort zone
Another reason your goal isn’t achieved could be your unwillingness to get out of your comfort zone.
Dreams require efforts, risks, and adapting to an environment that doesn’t suit your taste.
One just cannot achieve something while being in their comfort zone and letting the zone expand beyond their goals.
