What is keeping us from being successful? Why even after so much hard work we are ending up empty hands? It is not like we are not working hard; it is not like we shirk from our work. We are working for more than 9 to 10 hours on daily basis; we are doing everything we could but still we are not getting the desired success.
Are we missing out on something? Are we making some mistake or is there something that we are doing that we are not supposed to do? Well, the fact is that indeed we are committing mistakes; we are doing things that we are not supposed to do.
There are certain things that we do and hinder our own growth level. Success is not easy and it becomes tougher when we have certain bad habits.
As Jordan Belfort said, “The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it”
All we got to do is eliminate a few habits to achieve our goals and success. Here are a few things that we need to stop to have a successful life.
Stop cribbing and making excuses
We all at some point have made excuses because we could not achieve something. We all crib, we all make excuses when we are being handed a responsibility while we must take all the responsibilities as an opportunity to learn and hone our skills.
If we have not achieved something, we must not crib instead we must own it. Accept our faults and failures and learn from it. After learning, we must amend our steps and work towards our goals one more time.
Stop looking for a short-cut
The thing that we must understand that there are no short-cuts. There’s only one way towards success and it has plenty of hardships and hard-work. It will be challenging but this is what you need, you need challenges to have a proof of your own capabilities and strength.
As the famous quote says, “What comes easy won’t last. What lasts won't come easy author zero dean”
We all know that whatever achievement we have, someone had something to contribute. One way or another, people do have contribution in our success. Some people push us further towards our goal and we should always be thankful for that.
Throw away all sorts of addictions
If we are addicted to drugs, smoking and drinking, it is self-explanatory that we have something bigger closer to us other than our goals. The only addiction that we must have is our success. You must know Robert Downey Jr., the protagonist from the movie ‘The Iron Man’, Tony Stark. The actor was addicted to drugs, which led him towards his downfall. He was imprisoned as well but then one odd day, he just got ovr his drug addiction and rest is history.
