10 Ways to Fail in Life Almost Guaranteed
Most people want to be successful in life, but a lot of times they are doing
things that pretty much guarantee failure.
So, take a look below at 10 different ways that almost guarantee failure. Keep in mind, that if you want to be
successful you have to be honest with yourself, and see if you fall into one or more of these traps of failure.
1. Know it all?
Think you know it all, well guess again. If you think you have learned all you can learn then you are fooling
yourself. Part of life it to continually grow and if you stop that process, you are stuck, and being stuck equals
2. Not sure what you want
If you are undecided about what you want how can you possibly begin to move forward with your life and be
successful? You can’t! You need to not only know what you want, but get specific about it. You can’t just say, “I
want to be rich!” You need to get more detailed, for example, “I want to make one million dollars by the time I am
25 years old.”
3. Keep wishing
Lots of people hear about the Laws of Attraction and believe if the wish
for it and believe in it enough it will come true. But the reality is, you have to believe you can do it, and then
go do it for the Laws of Attraction to work properly.
4. What are you going to do with it
So, now you know what you want, but the next question is why? People want and want, but don’t know why they want
it and then give up halfway through because they have nothing to motivate them. I want a million dollars, but why?
Want to travel? Quit your job? If you have no motivation you have no reason to finish.
5. Hanging out with the wrong group
If the people you surround yourself with don’t have any desire to succeed they are not going to support you on
your journey. And this sounds bad but they may even try to sabotage your journey.
6. Listening to the wrong people
Be careful who you take advice from. Just because the boss’s son says that is a good path to take, he got his
job because he is daddy‘s son, not because he actually knows anything.
7. You can’t have it all
We all want things, but wanting everything won’t allow you to focus your energy anywhere. Pick one thing and
focus on that or prepare yourself for failure, because you can’t have it all, at least not all at once.
8. Remember where you came from
Most people don’t get where they are without a little help, so remember who helped you! For one, you may need
their help again someday and two you owe them, always repay your debt or don’t expect any help next time, which
means hello failure.
9. Think long term
It is easy to think about and focus on tomorrow, but if you want to succeed you have to look down the road. You
have to learn to plan long term so that you can enjoy your success for a long time.
10. Never forget what is important
The money is great and all, but you have to remember that the money isn’t important, it what the money can do
for you that is the focus.
So, don’t fall into the traps, avoid the 10 ways of almost guaranteed failure.
