Success loves people, especially those who diligently seek it. You got to be diligent when it comes to the pursuit of success otherwise it eludes you.
If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’ve tried to be successful in your life and career. If so, then I’m sure that at some point you’ve asked yourself: “Why am I not succeeding yet?” The answer is simple: You haven’t taken ownership of your success or failure. And if you don’t take ownership of your success/failure (and I mean 100% ownership), then the seeds of success are not in you. It might mean there’s no way that you’ll be successful. In this post I ‘ll show why taking full responsibility for your life is the first step towards moving forward on whichever path suits you best!
You blame others.
The first thing you need to do is stop blaming others for your lack of success. That’s right, I said it! You are not responsible for what others do or don’t do. You are only responsible for yourself, your actions, and reactions. It is the true nature of being a mature adult.
You may be thinking “but if my boss doesn’t give me the raise, I deserve then how can I succeed?” The answer is simple: keep working both on yourself and on the job until he gives you a raise (or if he doesn’t come to the part quit). There is nothing else that you can control in life except yourself and your own actions; so why not focus all your energy on becoming better yourself and doing better?
If someone else messes up at work or does something wrong, it’s their problem–not yours! They messed up; now they must deal with the consequences of those choices themselves instead of passing them off onto someone else who had nothing whatsoever to do with their decision-making process in the first place!
You’re too soft on yourself.
There are a lot of people who think that they are failing because they are victims. They feel like their circumstances and other people have somehow robbed them of their success, but this is not true at all. If we look at history, we can see that many successful people were born in poverty or even slavery and yet still managed to rise above their circumstances and become great leaders and innovators.
Your attitude towards your own success will determine whether you will be able to achieve what you want for yourself. If you think about how hard it would be for someone else who has the same skills as yourself but less opportunities than yourself (or no opportunities at all), then it becomes clear that if anyone can succeed, then anyone should succeed!
You don’t have a mentor.
One good step towards success is finding a mentor. Mentors are people who have been where you want to be, and they can help guide you through the challenges along the way. A good mentor will give advice on how to overcome challenges in your career or business, as well as provide direction for future steps. They may even be able to help find jobs and opportunities for their mentees!
Mentors are important because they provide guidance and support during times when things get tough–which happens often in life (especially when starting out).
You’re not hungry enough.
If you’re not hungry enough, it means that you are not willing to do what it takes to be successful.
You must be hungry for success. You should be willing to work hard and sacrifice for your business or career goals to come true. You also need the extra effort that comes from taking action on a daily basis, even when no one else is watching or paying attention–including yourself!
You don’t believe in yourself enough.
You don’t believe in yourself enough to take any action. If you doubt yourself the whole world will follow. Don’t!
Believe in yourself and you will surprise yourself. The greatest favour you can do yourself is believe especially in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, you will be timid. We all know that timid people don’t take any action. Fear paralyses them to death. Believe in yourself more and build self-confidence. Ambition, determination, and persistence, these are the hall marks of man and women that make it in life. Successful people have a tendency of focusing on the end goal, not what’s standing between them and their goal. Failures harp on their limitations like they are in fashion, don’t be one of them.
If you dont take ownership of your success/failure, you will never be successful
- Take ownership of your success/failure. And stop blaming the whole world. Blaming is for failures. Don’t be too soft on yourself. Get a mentor who will help you see what needs to change in order for you to succeed, plus hold you accountable for making changes in your life! Your beliefs will derail you or progress you; it’s up to YOU! Your habits matter–if they aren’t working for you now, then acquire new ones! You must be willing to sacrifice today’s pleasures for tomorrow’s gains (and vice versa). If you don’t take calculated risks and make sacrifices now, there won’t be nothing left in the future!
Success is a choice, but so is failure. The key difference between the two is that failure happens when you stop trying, while success requires you to keep going even when things get tough. Success takes time, success takes skill.
The truth is those whom you see succeeding they didn’t get there overnight it took time. Overtime anyone can succeed. Put in the time and the sacrifice and succeed.
