4 Common Reasons Why People Never Achieve The Success They Want

1. They listen to their negative mental chatter.

Negative self-talk can have some pretty damaging impacts. Negative-self talk has been found to “feed” anxiety and depression, cause an increase in stress levels while lowering levels of self-esteem. This can lead to decreased motivation as well as greater feelings of helplessness.

2. They give up

You have to embrace the unknown every single day, and push forward regardless of what challenges arise. Most of the time, people give up on their goals simply because they lack discipline. They can't get themselves to see something through to the end, regardless of how small the project.

3. They give up on their dreams.

We all have dreams, and they are in many ways the kernel of the best ideas. But somehow we have this idea that getting older is associated with giving up on dreams. Not in my world.

You are never too late or too old to do anything you want. So many people hit success at different stages in life, like Louise Hay, who was in her 60s when she started Hay House, and Samuel L. Jackson, who didn't get his big break until he was 43.

4. They listen to what others tell them.

Successful people will often say that most people thought they were crazy when they were starting out, and that they got more rejections than acceptances. I don't think this is ever not the case. So don't listen to other people--listen to your gut.
