Here are ten things you must AVOID doing to become successful faster:
1- When You Trust A Person Or Something You Know You Shouldn’t.
I won’t say I never trusted the wrong person or trusted that something would turn out how I wanted it to be! I’m a human, so are you. But, sometimes we meet people and they gave us signs not to trust them but again we do! Also when you trust that you’ll pass an exam, but you didn’t study that well in the first place! So, we have to be more realistic here, especially when it comes to trust. Because when our trust is broken, something inside of us changes, and it becomes a drawback for our success. So, try to eliminate this as much as possible and don’t trust the wrong person or thing.
2- Not Looking At the Bigger Picture.
We perform tasks better emotionally and do much better in our lives when we can visualize the bigger picture and see our goal. For wealthy people, it was never just one thing that happened that made them successful, they always have lots of stories to tell to make them reach their final goal. Champions always look at the bigger picture every second of the day. Can you see your bigger picture now?
3-Neglecting What’s Hidden On The Inside.
Lots of times, you are attracted to what looks so good, and the definition of good, of course, varies from one person to another. But, no matter whatever that thing is on the inside, you should also think of what’s hidden underneath and doesn’t appear so clear to your own eye. For example, if you are trying to lose weight, and you see a good delicious donuts, all covered in chocolate syrup, that looks so good and tempting, but what’s hidden there are hundreds of calories that you’ll regret eating later on and will make you gain weight instead of losing it.
4-Not Knowing Why You Are Where You Are!
One amazing thing about successful people, is that they have this one great, one-word question they use before doing anything, this magical word is “WHY?”, they ask themselves why am I doing this? Why am I here? Why am I talking to this and that person? Makes sense doesn’t it?
5-Forgetting That Their Mindset Is The Main Reason For Success.
Success has to come from within you, and without the proper mindset on the inside, you’ll never achieve anything on the outside. You are who you believe you are from within, don’t you hear this a lot? “Believe in Yourself”. This is not just a saying; however, it makes a huge difference in your successful life.
6-Doing What Doesn’t Work, AGAIN!
Sometimes, we believe if we did the same thing again, we’ll get a different result, ” Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results – Albert Einstein.
7-Being Someone You Are Not.
Every day, we hear people telling us what to do and what not to do, who we should be and who we shouldn’t be! But, did you ever decide to start being yourself and start to shut down others’ people voices.
8-Wanting To Change Others to Fit Your Needs.
Sometimes, you meet people, maybe they are related to you, and you keep telling them that they should change something in their hobbies personality or anything. But, they are free to do what they want, and you’re free as well to accept them as they are or let them go.
9-Pleasing Everyone All The Time.
For a fact, that’s impossible to achieve, and achieving it, won’t make you any happier, in fact, it will drain you soul, because you are not being yourself and not moving forward to achieving what you want to be because you’re busy fulfilling what others need from you.
10-Choose short-term pleasure over long-term gain.
“No pain, no gain” a very famous quote and it’s true. You have to get out of the comfort zone for long enough, as long as it should take to achieve your goal.
So, now that you know what you must not do to achieve success, are you up for the challenge? Do you really want to be successful?
