Success. Everyone has their own definition of success in life. For you it may be a owning a house. For another, it may be just landing a job at a fast food restaurant. For some it may be becoming the CEO of a company after working your way to the top. We all have our views on success and no one is wrong. Because success in life only matters to one who believes he or she has obtained it. As we know, not everyone can or will be successful. Here are some things that hold us back. Be aware so that one day you can fix it.

1. Having a problem with money.

Some people don’t like money. I know it sounds crazy right. But some people do not believe that they deserve to have money. They may work the same job getting low pay complaining about it the whole time but never believing that they are worth more than what they are earning. This is a self esteem issue. Some develop it from the way they were raised. Maybe your parents didn’t have a lot of money. Some even believe that having money is evil. Being greedy and being rich are two completely different things. A greedy person is always looking for more for themselves. A rich person has more and can do more for themselves as well as others. It’s a choice. Making money is a choice and how you spend it is a choice. Don’t limit yourself by choosing not to have it. Make money and make the necessary changes that others may not be willing to make. Give to the world and get even more than monetary value in return.

2. Lack of Clarity

Most of us wake up and know exactly what we are going to do that day. Why? Because we have done it before and do it everyday. It’s a set routine. You get up, get your coffee, kiss the wife, and go to work. You hate your boss and just know that Mark from accounting is going to say something to upset you again today. Of course there are always some variables here and there, but we know what is going on. Why not be like this about your goals in life? We all need a sense of direction. If you are not clear on where you want to go, how can you get there? Write it out. Know what you want and be clear on that. Then make a plan on how you are going to get there. You may not have all the tools yet to get to where you want to be, but at least make a plan for where you would like to go and the rest will work itself out on the way.

3. Lack of Faith

If there is no purpose to what you are doing then why are you doing it? A lot of people do things without knowing the purpose. Some may know the purpose but they are lacking in belief. They don’t believe in the plan or themselves and when it comes time to pursue those goals, they half-step. They tip toe to those goals looking and waiting for something to happen so they can say, “well I tried but this isn’t for me.” Know what your doing and act as if you cannot fail. Take action like what you want is going to happen no matter if you want success in life what and you’ll be amazed at the results.

4. A negative mentality

Changing your perspective will change your life. If every time you start something you say “I am probably going to fail” you are probably going to fail. It becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. And because you have failed in the past you believe you will fail again and this is a viscous cycle of failure that many find themselves trapped in without even knowing it. Change is hard. Changing a mind that has been trained to think negatively for years or even decades is extremely hard. Start today. Replace every negative thought with a positive one and begin to practice this. No matter how ridiculous it may seem. It takes 40 minutes to drive to work and you leave with only 10 minutes to get there. Tell yourself you are going to make it in time. Have a mentality that is so positive and optimistic that it just doesn’t make much sense to others. Try it for just a week and see what happens.

5. The wrong type of crowd

Do you know who successful people hang around? Usually other successful people. This is very common. Most people have no success in life because they can’t get out of their social classes because they are surrounded by people who make the same amount of money as them. This doesn’t mean you should go out and be a gold digger. You should just associate with people who are where you want to be in life. Or at least those who are like minded and trying to get to a better place in life. Negative people will drain your energy. As crabs try to pull other crabs that are escaping back into the bucket, there are your friends. Stay away from those with crab mentality and don’t be afraid if you have to let some people go on the way. ‘

6. Fear of failure

Nobody wants to fail. This is the truth. No one wants to be a failure at life. It’s just common sense. Letting that fear of failure control you is something else altogether though. Before a baby can walk, they may have to fall down a few times. There are so many stories of famous people who have failed and then later became huge successes. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team and we all know how his story ended. Mistakes and failures are just learning experiences. They are positives and not negatives for two reasons. One: they teach you how to do it better the next time. Two: They make you a stronger individual overall. Anyone who has been through failures in life, will know that you don’t come out of it the same. Each time you rise again stronger and wiser.

Truth is I wanted to quit many times. Every single day I have thought about it. But I know my why. I know my reason that I am here. I may not completely understand my purpose, but I know that there is freedom in the success. Freedom to live life on my own terms.

Do you want to be free? There’s many avenues to take and maybe this one isn’t for you. But if you’ve made it this far and you’re still with me, I believe it is for you. Now that you know the reasons, its time to start making changes. As long as you are willing to face whatever it is that is holding you back from success, you are bound to achieve any goals that you set. So don’t give up on success and keep striving today!
