You can also save this page so you can come back to them, but whatever you do, don’t lose this advice forcing you to start over again…
Success Blocker #1: Fear
Something specific that I’ve personally struggled with is a fear of failure. The problem with this one is that the more potential you have, the stronger this success blocker is.
Potential means you’re capable, but it also often means that you’ll put the right amount of pressure on yourself to succeed. Fear of failure/rejection/losing can be crippling, but only if you look at it the wrong way.
Embrace your fear, and instead think of failure as a stepping-stone rather than a brick wall. You’re probably going to fail in some capacity along the path to success. The key is to realize it isn’t the end of the world.
Success Blocker #2: Adaptation
The world is constantly changing, which means we must as well. Successful people change with the world, or at least adapt to it. But failure to adapt almost certainly means that you’ll fail to keep up.
It’s fine to be “old school” and do what you’ve always done best. But you can’t become ignorant to how society is changing. Continuously learn and be willing to change when necessary – and embrace it!
Success Blocker #3: Self-Belief
Think about that successful person that you know or have seen on television. Here’s how a lack of self-belief could be keeping you from success…
“That guy is only successful because he was born into money.”
“That guy is only successful because he had an expensive education.”
“That guy is only successful because he has connections that I don’t.”
I could go and on about all the excuses I’ve heard before. But really, it’s just a way for unsuccessful people to rationalize their own lack of success.
Success isn’t all about education, having a rich family, or any of those factors. It’s about having a goal, planning the path to get there, and keeping yourself on track. But most importantly, it’s about taking that first step…
Success Blocker #4: Procrastinating
The single most common thing keeping people from success is procrastination. “I can do that later” is the most dangerous phrase any aspiring person can mutter.
Once you allow yourself to put something off, you’ve opened the door for it to become a habit, and for you to continually put other things in front of it. Give yourself deadlines to help but remember that now is the best time to take a step toward success.
Knocking down these 4 success blockers will open up roads you NEVER could’ve imagined. Your success journey starts right here, right now.
