10 Ways You Sabotage Your Success

I have talked to many people that have worked on being a success for years, and some that have tried their entire life without achieving the success they desire.  Many people do not realize that through seemingly harmless and often unconscious choices and decisions they are sabotaging their success. Do you sabotage your success?

Here are 10 common ways that you can sabotage your success. Do some self-analysis and make sure these common ways are not holding you back from success. Remember what they say, doing the same things will give you the same results. Take a look at this list and if you are doing any of these, change them and stop sabotaging your success. When you change what you do, you will get different results. That I can guarantee!
Don’t Sabotage Your Success by:
1. Attitude: How is your attitude? A negative or bad attitude is one of the common things that can sabotage your success. A negative attitude does not see opportunities when they show themselves and spends too much time focusing on negative rather than positive. A negative attitude will attract more negative. Get a positive attitude and you will get more positive.

2. Fear of Failure: Some people are so afraid of failing they never really start. This is the quickest way to sabotage your success, if you don’t start you can’t finish. Remember that failure is just a stepping stone on the path to success. If you don’t have some failures you are not doing enough. Just do it, if you fail it is just an event. Move on, learn and adjust your strategy.

3. Taking Advice from Someone Who Didn’t: Taking advice from someone that has not been though similar experiences is a sure way to sabotage your success. Get your advice from someone that has been there and done that. The only way you know something is by doing something, otherwise is just something they read, or heard.

4. Thinking Small: Thinking small is a common way of sabotaging your success. Small thinking limits you and your belief in yourself. Thinking big is the first step to doing and being big. Think big, plan big and do big, you can if you decide.

5. No Plan: Stop sabotaging your success and plan your success. Plan it and put it on paper. Remember if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail!. A goal without a plan is like a road to nowhere as i always say and it’s my favorite quotation (Check my Facebook profile). You must have a good plan and take a step

6. Faith in Yourself: You must have faith in yourself. Everyone has incredible talents that will bring them success. Nothing will hold back success quicker than not having faith in yourself. Find those incredible talents that you possess and they will propel you to success at an amazing speed.

7. Fear of Risk: If you are afraid of taking risks you will hamper success. I am not talking about crazy risks, but rather controlled, researched and calculated risks. Sometimes you just need to jump in with both feet and realize that success is your only option. When you take away the safety net you can do amazing things.

8. ProcrastinationIf you want to undermine your success procrastinate. Success is all about taking action. You snooze, you lose. Don’t put things off, when you get in the habit of getting things done and decisions made in a timely manor you will quickly be moving towards success. Though it isn't easy not to procrastinate, but you have the confidence that you can do it once; the root of procrastination is evil

9. Believing Your Beliefs: You can easily hinder your success by believing your way is the only way. Open your mind to different and better ways of doing things. Most people are full of beliefs that control the things that they do and the way that they think. These beliefs can cause you to make decisions and choices that will sabotage your success. Logically evaluate all your choices instead of reacting unconsciously.

10. Doing and No Thinking: When you get started on a project or a goal you might have a tendency to get going immediately, that’s great. But you also need to spend time thinking. Too many people don’t think, I mean really think. Time spent thinking is a great investment in your success. Set aside time for deep thinking that will be without interruption and you will be surprised how beneficial it can be for your success. All doing and no thinking can cripple your success. Doing things without deep thinking can leads to failure (as I think)

         There are more ways that people can sabotage their success, but these are the most common. Be on guard for any of these habits or characteristics that could be hindering your success. When they show up in your life adjust and change accordingly and start moving forward.

Try and listen to people’s advice (positive advice) for you not to sabotage your success. GOD BLESS YOU

All the way to your SUCCESS
