Here you are… at the bottom of the totem pole. You have fought and clawed but life got the best of you; so you let yourself slip. You wonder what you did wrong and what you could have changed.
You think that life was against you and the odds were not in your favor. You wish that things were better and you could pull yourself out of it, but you didn’t know how.
Here are the five biggest reasons we fall short of achieving success in our lives.
Fear is often deeply rooted in the subconscious mind. We live much of our lives not taking chances because fear prevents us from pushing forward. Fear is one of those things that will either make or break you. Many of the problems that we face on a daily basis could be overcome if we were not afraid of doing it.
Fear is something that we obtain genetically. It is engraved into our DNA to fear things we do not understand and can be acquired from the environment in which we live. But we choose to let fear in our lives and choose to let it hold us back.
Love is often considered the opposite of hate; but fear is actually the opposite of love. All the emotions in nature are rooted back to the two instinctive emotions of love and fear. Animals do not hate, hate is something we create. Hate, jealousy, violence and all the other negative emotions we experience are all based out of fear.
When you find out what it is you are scared of, attack it with everything you have!! By facing your fears you have everything to gain, and nothing to lose. Because these decisions that you make, based out of fear, could change your life forever and not to mention you may never get this opportunity again,
so take advantage of it before it’s gone.
Lack of Confidence
When we perform specific tasks we must have confidence in ourselves to do well or else we will more than likely fail. We must have confidence in making decisions or else nothing will change and your life will rotate in an endless cycle
Confidence stems from our ability to perceive certain tasks and abilities in a positive manner. We must do whatever we can to keep ourselves on the right path.
Use positive reinforcements to keep yourself in alignment with what you want to accomplish. Believe in yourself and your abilities because if you don’t then no one else will. People react more positively to confident people because even if they don’t know what they are talking about because confident people project confidence and therefore others believe what they are saying.
The pursuit of your dream requires much more than believing that it will happen, without doing anything to actually make that become reality. It requires that you take action and do something about your current situation.
Set tasks, use daily reminders, use friends and family to motivate you or even use your own personal reward system when performing a task so you have something to look forward to after it is complete.
No one ever achieved things in this world by sitting around and being given everything (unless maybe you inherit billions of dollars from your parents).
Laziness will not get you anywhere in this world and will cause you deter from doing the necessary things to make your dream a reality. Become a proactive person and work on things to the best of your ability, because if you don’t then life will never excite you.
The information is right there in front of your face, but because you are set in your ways, no matter how much evidence you see, you are not willing to change your belief system. We tend to hate being wrong and so we decide to block out the possibility of anything else being right.
Being stubborn can block you from unlocking the key to the success you seek.
You were not willing to open up and try/learn something new and it made you turn a cheek to the information that you needed. Be open-minded and allow for the ‘anything is possible’ mindset to manifest.
Not Taking Risks
You will find that the things you most appreciate in life probably took the most effort to achieve. You have a choice, to play it safe and get the same old average job with your average friends living your average lives or you can decide that there is more out there and you are going to find it.
You must be willing to go against the odds sometimes and take the chance of something not working out.
You must refuse the urge to give in to the easy road and instead venture down the path containing thorns, bumps and cracks in the road. Sometimes you just need a leap of faith and know that even if it doesn’t work out you will make it happen. But it starts initially with your ability to take a chance and stop playing it safe.
Focus on living in the here and now. You don’t want to look back and constantly think “What if?” Look back on your life and know that you lived the most fulfilling life possible.
The ability to succeed and live an awesome life is possible for every one of us. Which of these things have affected you the most and what are some other key things that have hindered you throughout life? Let us know in the comments below.
Remember that ANYTHING is possible if you believe in yourself. Don’t limit yourself, reach for the stars and live the life of your dreams! May peace and love be with you all <3
