Does money define your success? Think of the people who have a lot of money. Are they happy? Do they enjoy every second of the 24-hour day? No right! So success definitely is not equal to having a lot of money. Then what is the success? Why only a small number of people around us are successful and the most aren’t? Let us talk about the reason behind the failure, or let me put it as the reason why people do not succeed.
A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success. Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.
The major reason for failure is that one does not understand the meaning of success. The second reason is people do not want to work hard to progress. They look forward to something that can give them what they aspire in their hands without working hard. Everyone wants shortcuts. They do not realize that their shortcuts are not only making them smarter. Success is always cleverer than them. Even your victory takes a shortcut and does not stay longer whilst doing a tit for tat action. The third reason of failure is because people measure success in terms of money.
But if all this isn’t correct, then what is the real meaning of success? Let’s find out.
Success is continuously improving yourself and struggling on being the best in what you are. Doing anything with dedication and passion leads to the victory. One achieves success when he continues to improve himself, his skills, his living, and improving the way how you relate.
Let us understand further reasons of failure!
When you do not get compatible to changing your habits, you can never go being successful. One has to move on from low-frequency people and go on making better connections.
No matter what your colleague’s or your spouse’s food choices are, you just cannot continue eating the crappy food you have always had. You got to get better.
Instead of wasting your time, you need to spend time on high-quality activities. This will change your daily routine. People do not want to adapt the change and continue working on activities they have been doing by now. This can never fetch one an achievement. Suppose you plan to make your business better and you require acquiring new technology, it is imperative that you spend time with new technology rather than wasting time on watching TV like you ever did before. To get adapted to the technology, you will have to use the latest technology yourself first, study about it to gain better knowledge and it is only then that you can implement the same in your business. Adapting to something new is highly imperative.
While you are moving upwards on the steps of success, a new balance is crucial to be maintained. One also has to have a balance between his spiritual, physical, financial as well as relational life to avoid clutter or stress from any of the factions. Most of us fail to keep a balance between all these factors.
One should be adaptable to any situation that he faces. Most of us aren’t compatible with many things which put a stop in our present situations. You should be able to eat whatever is placed in front of you; one should be able to spend time with anyone no matter what happens, and one has to justify mediocre behaviors and activities reasonably. Also, success demands to cut down your time given for entertainment along with the money spent on it. The same money should be spent on your productivity that will lead to your achievement. But we aren’t ready to sacrifice all this. Thus, we fail to achieve success.
The choices of people stay and do not change simultaneously with their achievements. It is imperative that you make your choices of a better quality, create better quality relationships and make better choices in all the factors that affect any part of your life.
While we have something different and new to face in life, we tend to say NO. This is because we fear about the future. We do not know what will happen next. We are unsure about the outcomes the new situations. This fear drags one to the side of failure. One necessarily has to say a yes to overcome failure.
In reality, it is very hard to practice the above reasons mentioned. Though the reasons sound simpler, transforming yourself for getting better has never been easy. It takes courage, dedication, and passion to get there. These are the reasons why people fail. The day you get ready to face them, you will be able to get there where success awaits you.
