This Is Why You Will Never Be Successful

Well I have written a lot of articles on success and career fulfillment. I have in fact been quoted and shown expertise on success, Inc, lifehack and many more. It is hard to keep talking about this. If you are not successful, you can still be. But it is gloomier when you just will never be successful. I am sorry about that. But you have to embrace the facts. There are certain truths that will never improve your odds. So I want to address the facts in this article and clear the air as much as possible.

  1. You will never be successful if you hang around losers. That’s a basic principle. From Jim Rohn to Tony Robbins this is a well attested statement.
  2. You will never be successful if you don’t set goals. Please know where you are going to be in life. Where you want to be and what you want to be. Yes you should be headed for somewhere. Goals help you attain that.
  3. You just don’t have any mentors. And that is painful. You should have people you look up to. Why should you think you could do everything by yourself? Even when you can’t have the one-on-one advice from them, seek the advice of mentors through their books or podcast.
  4. You don’t want to be successful. Yes I have met people who simply don’t want to be successful. They may possess intelligence, but they lack ambition and would do nothing about seizing opportunities. They just want to be content and stay where they are. At least playing it safe doesn’t hurt.
  5. You don’t take risks. There is some adventure when you chase opportunities. There is just this excitement that powers you when you hunt for opportunities. It is so sad some people just want to stay in their comfort zones.
  6. You listen to what people are saying. And perhaps this will take us to #1. But you are just listening to people who don’t determine your fate. You should be listening and believing in yourself. Every other person’s opinion is simply irrelevant.
  7. You are afraid. You simply lack courage to get it going. You are just afraid. Success is for the bold. I am sorry to tell you this, but you won’t attain anything solid if you are afraid.
  8. You think you don’t stand a chance. Yes you have been hearing all that BS that you have to own a degree to be successful. Or you think you have to be from a great family with a lot of power connections. Or you think you don’t look good enough. All that is crap. If you want to be successful, you have to go out to stake your claim and own it.
  9. You are stuck. And I hate that. You have to think. You have to be creative. You have to look at the hole and see it differently. You can’t think like everyone else. You have to think out of the box and try hard to beat competition. Because that is what matters – you’ve got to think for you.
  10. You are refusing to take action. And this matters. You have read my blog. You keep reading blogs. And reading books. And you are not taking action. You don’t want to by the way. It takes commitment, discipline and dedication to get things done. But perhaps that scares you but it means you don’t want to get things done. You just love making excuses and complaining about how life is working against you. Trust me nothing truly happens in your life until you start executing strategies and getting things done.
