Who does not want to be successful and rich in life? Everyone. None will ever like to be called a failed person. If you really wish to be successful and set up your leadership in every walk of life, you should think again where you could not achieve success, why you could not accomplish your target. You will have to take pains and stop failing by revisiting the causes of your failures. Once you are able to identify the reason, you will get rid of your mental stress. It will boost up your income, health, true love and availability of leisure time to enjoy with your family. If you are successful, you can manage your investments, industries, taxation and valuation properly. You will be able to improve your vision.
How? Only one failure can put you down, it can bring you to the brink of insolvency, you can loose your goodwill which was built up with sincere efforts put in by you, your family and/or your forefathers. If you have to face a series of failures, imagine what it would cost to you in terms of social fame and financial position. A lot! You need to take precautions before hand – you know! You should not do parenting your failures for a long time. Millions of people are there to take a bite in your slice; they won’t ask your permission, they forget the normal courtesy to do so. They may take away your rewards. They know how to be opportunist and take benefit of your weaknesses – they are already on watch when you commit some mistake in your chasing up your targets. They will damage your personality to that extent that you may be misunderstood by your near people as to what personality type you belong to. In this materialistic world, there are lesser people who value ethics and personal relationships. There is no need of any advertising campaign to make your failures known – they will come to light themselves.
Getting success is not so easy if we do not take our tasks seriously. Once we develop the attitude of taking every task seriously, all the matters will become so easy and enjoyable as we do with the colorful rainbow, birds chirping, flowers blooming, etc. You will feel yourself to be in some nursery home and you are being looked after as infants or you are able to follow your spirituality pursuits smoothly. This is the truth otherwise you will feel the garbage lies thrown everywhere if you don’t take any job seriously. When you are proposed to take up a job, you must consider first whether you have confidence to do it. If you have, you must take into account your resources, your competence, period and other factors essential for the success. If you feel everything is favorable, you can start but avoid the following. This is an essential therapy to follow for your sound financial health as well. Your working style should become your trade mark. I am sure if you do it seriously, you will be successful:
1. Company of Losers.
You will have to go through the list of those with whom you pass some of your time. How many are they, amongst the persons enlisted by you, who are successful in their respective fields. If majority of them are those who could not succeed, you will have to sort out and try to avoid further company with them. Otherwise, it’s a guaranteed way to fail in life with this. Whatever you like to do, losers will just tell you it won’t work and after some time, you will also become a loser. They can never inspire you to take risk or proceed ahead. Sometime, they do leg pulling also in name of saving you from further losses. You can expect any single word of healing from them if you are hurt anywhere.You need to separate yourself as soon as possible.
2. Uncertainty of What You Want.
You can meet every other one saying, “I want to be rich”. It’s fine with that generic goal but the problem is, how much riches do you want to acquire? Or what is the definition of being rich ? What are your methods to achieve them? Put it this way – the methods used to make a million and $3,000 are different. No wonder some people couldn’t experience breakthroughs in life because they are playing small for big goals. If you want to make a million, you better put in that level of commitment and resources. Organize them. Just talking won’t solve the problem. Fix up what you really want, what you have, and how you would arrange yourself. If you have marketing communication, tape up new markets for your services and products. If you have other skills, sort out how you can use them best.
3. Getting confused if You Want Everything.
It’s nice to have a lot of things but if you go chasing everything, you will get nothing. You know! You only have 24 hours a day and you’ve got to focus on your priorities. I know, you can hire others and so on but the fact is, you’ve got to want ‘something’ first to lead to another ‘something’, then to everything. Make sense? If you have got confused, list out your priorities and take up the tasks one by one. You can achieve something otherwise you will loose everything.
4. Lacking Self Confidence.
You are taking up every job without considering if you are able to do it or not. You feel eager to grab every opportunity, sit down and decide what to do. You will loose your goodwill in the eyes of those who assign you. You must have confidence to do the jobs you are taking up. Otherwise say a brave NO. If you don’t do, you are inviting your failures.
5. You Are Ignorant To Ascertain Why You Want Success.
Wanting everything is bad enough – but it gets even worse if you don’t even know the reason why you’re trying to do something. You do not have any goal to achieve. What’s the deal? Without a solid reason, a compelling reason, where are you going to find the motivation and encouragement for you to overcome obstacles? You think it’s going to be fun ride to success? Then you haven’t been traveling – it’s a rocky road. Most people failed to achieve their goals because they never complete the journey– they give up half way (or at the beginning) because they cannot see the worth of accomplishments.
6. You Are Not Thankful To Those Who Helped You Earlier.
The people who achieved success and never felt gratitude towards those who have helped them can never repeat their success. It can be your genetic habit. Improve it. You know! The earlier success will become a matter of chance if it is so hard to say thank you. The law of reciprocity is simple – you return favors to those who helped you in the past. And maybe, they’ll help you again in the future. Remember this – it takes more than just you to achieve success, so don’t be a jerk. You must be thankful to those who helped you. Otherwise you are going to close the avenues of getting help if you land into any emergency.
7. You Think You are Now Perfect.
The day you stop learning is the day you stop improving yourself, you will loose your fitness. If you don’t want to fail in life, make you sure you stop acting as though you already know everything. The fact is, all successful people are people who continuously learn to be even more successful. They don’t stop. Let me put it in this perspective – you don’t know what you don’t know, you must continue to learn new things. You must have eagerness to learn. Otherwise, you will continue to remain in a blind well.
8. You Listen To The Wrong People.
You have got those people around you who are not competent enough to assess what you really want. They can be selfish and wish to use you as their tools of getting benefits or they wish to chew up your resources to their interests. You will have to ascertain – it can be possible that in one or two deals, they may show their shortfalls or continue to have duplicity. You must examine it positively and negatively, from both sides. To his exercise is necessary whenever you are going to deal with anyone.
9. Short Term Working.
Many ‘successful’ people make a lot of money to lose it all. This probably because they became too comfortable and the other thing is, once you achieve success, you should ride on the wave when the momentum is there. When you think short term, you’re only going after the instant pleasure. You must learn to master ‘delay gratification’ so that you can enjoy your today’s labor. You will have to ensure your brand management efficiently.
10. You’re Blind To What Is Important In Life.
There are only two things that are important in your life – control of time and experiencing happiness. Money, love, big cars, diamonds, etc are the things that contribute to these two benchmarks of successes. For instance, if you have money, you don’t need to work so that you can have more time to do the things you like. It’s not the money that you’re trying to get but what the money can do for you. If you have got money, do enjoy but simultaneously try to make the sources of your money stronger, more stable and long lasting so that you continue to have inflow of money to enjoy. If you are able to make savings, you can use them when you feel slow inflow. If you don’t make good investments timely, you may not get another chance to build up yourself.
Have some meditation and/or other yoga exercises. Think over and start! It’s okay to fail and you should fail as many times as you can. That is how you learn but more importantly, you should never give up – each time you get kick dirt in your face, wash your face and ‘fight’ back. Don’t go crying like a sissy because Mum’s not going to come cleaning your face always, you need to be mature enough to handle your affairs independently.
Be Happy – avoid your failures by redesigning your working style.
