Don’t We All Want to Succeed?

Daily ReadDon’t We All Want to Succeed?

Yes! Silly question? Probably, but why do some people succeed when others seem to just spin their wheels or even fail? Here are five barriers that, in many cases, guarantee failure. Let’s take a look at these barriers and how to overcome them:

  1. Uninspiring Goals – Rather than envisioning a “thing” (like an amount of money, an object such as car, or an achievement like writing a book) as your goal, envision–with all the strength in your imagination–how you will feel when you achieve the goal. This way you’re inspired to achieve your goal.
  2. Fear of Failure – Decide in your mind (and heart) that failure is temporary and that it is only a setback that will delay your success. Accept that sometime you will fail.
  3. Fear of Success – decide you’re going to be happy and grateful in the future no matter what happens. Don’t focus on possible problems associated with success, rather than how wonderful it will be.
  4. An Unrealistic Timetable – most people vastly underestimate what they can do in a set amount of time. As you list your steps required to achieve a goal, schedule only the 20% of the tasks that will produce 80% of the results.
  5. Worrying About Plateaus – when you reach a plateau or dry spot, celebrate rather than give up in frustration. Usually you’re on the brink of a major breakthrough!
