6 REASONS WHY YOU CAN NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL


Everyone wants to be successful but not everyone knows how to become successful. Most think that being successful is reserved for some persons, so they never bother to learn what it takes. If you are not successful then there are things you are doing knowingly or unknowingly that is stopping you.

Few persons understand that their actions today defines their tomorrow, so most people are not intentional about what they do today. Hence, when tomorrow comes they wonder why they do not see the result they most desperately seek.
6 REASONS WHY YOU CAN NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL

Below are 5 reasons why you can never be successful.

Impossibility thinking

You want to be successful but in your heart of hearts you think that it is impossible and unattainable. Some people do not have staying power to go through the process that births good success. We tend to criticize what we do not understand or what we tried and failed at.

Nothing good comes easy, yet we believe in our deepest of hearts that there is one formula to it and when we apply it we should get automatic success. When others we do not expect to become successful eventually makes it to spotlight, we resent them because we feel they are lesser and we deserve it more so we conclude becoming successful is impossible. Everyone can be successful, the question is, are you willing to develop the staying power?

Mystery thinking

You are not successful because you have come to the conclusion that success is a mystery. But is it really a mystery? Or you came to that conclusion because you have searched for the success pill and couldn’t find it? A lot of persons thinks that there is one particular road map to success, so when they search for the map and it eludes them, they conclude success is a mystery without a solution.

 Success follows due process, therefore you must learn how to continually adapt, learn, unlearn and relearn till you know what works for you. Even when you have discovered what works for you, you must continually work at it to keep the success wheel going. Without a good foundation, there will not be sustained success. There is no quick fix or magic solution to success, you must be ready to follow due process.

Luck

Some persons sit down waiting for that lucky day, that lucky shot that will catapult them to success. Can I shock you? That lucky shot to success is a myth. You can wait your whole life and never get the luck shot. Becoming successful by luck is one in a 100 million chance. The fact that you know one who made a bet and one a million dollars does not mean luck will make you successful. You can bet away your life savings and never hit the jackpot.

 Most times, the overnight success that we crave for happens to everyone else but us, yet we still wait for that one lucky shot at success. It is better for you to strategically work for it than to wait for it. Success comes to those who diligently work smart towards it and not those who hopefully waits for it.
6 REASONS WHY YOU CAN NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL

Working hard instead of working smart

If success is made by working hard, day laborers will be billionaires by now. Hard work hardly brings success. A lot of people have poured in their time, sweat and energy yet they are not halfway to being successful. Others miss out on the beautiful side of life because they want to become successful so bad that they sacrificed their life and happiness for it.

 There is hard work and there is smart work. Smart work is knowing what principles to apply, knowing how and when to apply them. It is not enough to give your life to a work, hoping that all the years you put on the job will make you successful; you have to learn what it takes and do it consistently. Doing the right thing the wrong way will never produce the result you seek.

Waiting for that one opportunity, that one event

When you live your life waiting for that “if only” opportunity to be successful, you will have a long wait. Success comes to those who prepare and do their thing while they wait for the opportunity. Some of you feel that you need that single financial break, that one promotion at your workplace, if only you can lay your hands on a particular sum of of money, and so many other “if onlys”. If you just wait for the opportunity and don’t prepare, two things will happen; either you miss the opportunity because you are not prepared for it or you miss out because you couldn’t recognize the opportunity for what it is. If you don’t do the necessary assignments you will not reap the fruits of success thereof.

“When opportunity comes, it is too late to prepare.” -John Wooden
The truth is we are insatiable, there is always something we want, there is always something we wish for that will finally make us complete and successful. Even after we get these things, a greater need will always arise, so becoming successful is greater than meeting that one need.
6 REASONS WHY YOU CAN NEVER BE SUCCESSFUL

The right family, the right connection

Becoming a success is more than who you know, where you come from and what you have. A lot of people waste their life being bitter that they were not born into a particular family. My dear, it is too late to wish that you were born into a wealthy or prominent home. Meeting the right people is very important to achieving purpose but totally relying on it to make you successful is definitely an exercise in futility.

If meeting the right people or being born into a wealthy home is enough to make one successful then why do we have a lot of rich kids who are nuisance to the society? If you have no value to offer then your connections or wealthy family will do little or nothing for you.

Becoming successful is more than power, more than getting promoted, more than waiting for that single luck or opportunity, it is more than being born into the right family, more than gaining a particular prestige.

“Real sustainable change doesn’t happen in a moment, it is a process.”- John Maxwell
If you are going to be successful you need to focus on more than the connection, you need to do more than waiting for the right opportunity. Remember, life does not owe you anything so get out of that entitlement mentality, it will only make you hateful of those who are successful. Yesterday is gone, today is what counts more than anything else. Yesterdays should only serve as an inspiration to do better today. Tomorrow can only produce results from today’s efforts. Always grow above your past accomplishments. Strive to do better.
Today is what you have, what will you do with it? Your success depends on that decision and action you make today.
