13 reasons you are not as successful as you should be

ambition

1. LAZINESS
I don’t think there’s an easy way to put this. We have to assume that you are lazy. Every single successful person works hard to get where they are. It’s okay to be lazy. Just admit it. But don’t complain about not being rich and successful, Okay?

2. ENTITLEMENT
Only a few people in the world are a part of the lucky sperm club. You and me? We gotta work to get what we want. Quit thinking you are owned something. You are not. Get to work.

3. FEAR
You are afraid, plain, and simple. Afraid of looking silly. Afraid of what your friends and family will say. Afraid of everything. Look, you are going to stop being afraid, or you are not. Nobody can convince you to stop. Imagine thought….what awaits you when you stop with the fear excuses?

4. NEGATIVITY
You may not realize it. But the people you associate with might be negatives. They could 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.

5. STOP THINKING
How much do you want to bet you have paralysis by analysis? You think way too much about what you could or should do. Does get what they want, and everyone else gets what they get. Stop analyzing and start doing.

6. 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.

7. THEY
There’s no “they”. There’s no secret group of the 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 life/business/everything. It’s easy to blame “them” thought, isn’t it?

8. WASTE TIME
You’re the classic time-waster. You spend hours and hours every day working on not working. You do things that aren’t productive. How are you ever 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 are going to keep this path.

9. SOCIAL B.S.
You spend way too much time in social media land. You waste probably about 59% of your productive hours of the day doing this. The sad part is, you know it, but you can’t stop. So you can’t get anything done that matters.

10. THINK SMALL
You think way to small. You are constantly looking only a day or a week ahead instead of years ahead. Because of this, you never get anywhere, you never lead; you always follow!

11. DON’T WANT IT
You don’t really want to be successful. Sure, you like to dream about it like everyone else. But in your heart you’re afraid of what might happen if you really get it. Success is change, and it feels really, really good.

12. DON’T BELIEVE
You never believed that is possible. Society tough you that 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!
