10 Ways to Disrupt Your Success. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing ten ways to Disrupt your Success. I know you are a bit confused by the title, but it’s not what you think. No, I am not advising you not to be successful. Instead, I am going to share some tips that you may be doing that may prevent success from coming into your life.
For some people who are failing to become successful, they are their enemies. From time to time, we are all guilty of behaviours that hinder our Success. If you commit the following blunders, you will be undermining your Success.
10 Ways to Disrupt Your Success
Forget your goals and visions, or not having them at all
What do you want to achieve in your business, in the short and long term? What do you visualize enjoying after you have completed these goals – financial security, better lifestyles, a new home or car, a holiday? Set specific goals and the activities you will need to undertake to achieve these goals. If you do not set down specific goals, or if you forget about them during your journey towards success, then you are sabotaging your success.
Lose confidence in yourself
You have the goals, but most importantly, you will need the confidence that you can do it!
Lack of knowledge or stop learning
You do not need to go back to college to learn physically. There are now various channels through which you can learn. Often, what you need to succeed personally or financially is not learnt in a university degree! Search for personal and financial development training programs, and equip yourself with the knowledge and tools you will need to become successful. Successful people never stop learning; they tend to have an insatiable desire for knowledge. Search the internet, find the best learning programs, read books – just learn, discover and learn. Invest a little in educating yourself as this will help you achieve your goals.
Think that you can become successful without any investment
This is a common reason why people fail to become successful. Everyone wants something for nothing! Well, if it is something that will make you a millionaire, then you must be prepared to invest some money and effort into it. No genuine long term business can thrive without initial capital outlay and consistent investment, whether they are an on- or off-line business. There are some legitimate businesses which you can start and run with minimal capital outlay, but they do still need some money to grow them. Being cheap is not recommended, and it will not get you anywhere near your goals of becoming wealthy and successful.
Fear of failure
This is the toxic failing that keeps a lot of people away from their dreams of becoming successful. I like the quote which says “Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure”. If you face a temporary setback on your quest towards Success; learn from it, pick yourself up and soldier on towards your dreams. “Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success”.
Yet another nasty one! Taking action TODAY is the foundational key to all success. By procrastinating, you are missing chances to be the best you can be; to make money, and to be successful. Get rid of all the bad habits that waste your time, break down your tasks to small manageable bits, visualize the result of your project – do all that you can to fight this deadly habit that can keep you away from your goals.
Lack of focus
You can have laid out goals on the Success you want to achieve, but if you do not have focus, you will soon sabotage your Success. There are a lot of ‘business opportunities’ that will arrive in your inbox daily – most of which are scams, no matter how genuine and promising they sound. When you are starting your online business, you can also quickly become overloaded with information. Well, in some cases the information overload can simply stop you from taking any action! The trick is to be focused. Have a list of your things to do every day. Every day, do something towards building your business.
Be easily discouraged
This is a common one. Your family or friends may not believe that you will succeed. Do not let this discourage you. It is recommended that you have a good network of positive people who can support and encourage you as you work towards your Success. People will say discouraging words, sad things will happen around you, but it is only you who can let that get to your mind and affect you.
Dislike constant change
To be successful, you must constantly be improving yourself, your business, and your products. If you have an online business – this is even more important since the internet is very dynamic. Stay on top of recent developments and be continually learning new ways of running and growing your business.
Lack of dedication
This is a vital one. If you want something badly enough, it will be yours. A lot of people fail because they do not have the innate desire to become successful.
In conclusion, I will share with you these quotes on Success: “Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire”. “What is Success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose”. “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him”. “Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success”.
Get it, and be successful!
