Reasons why people don’t accomplish the success that they want

31 Oct 2019 | 3 min read

We all have aspirations and goals that we want to achieve but it is sometimes difficult to make those a reality. Some people struggle with the repetition of the day to day work which would make the difference between success and failure.

So, we want to get deep into and figure out the real reason that holds us back from succeeding, and when we know the main reasons, it would be easier for us to overcome and move on! 

Here are the main reasons for it! 

Blaming others

Before you can take charge of your life and move forward toward your goals, you have to take ownership of where you are right now.

And though there are dozens of factors involved in every aspect of where you are in life right now, it comes down to this: You have the agency to change things, and no one can stop you from your success.  

Stop learning

The people who are constantly curious and constantly learning are the ones who are the most fulfilled and accomplished. When you read widely, dig deeper into your field or any subject that interests you and connects to your goals and plans, you'll expand your perspective to one that might be able to get you where you want to go. The second you start feeling like you've learned enough is the second you start digging your own grave.  

Not setting goals

It's one thing to have a vague mental roadmap of where you'd like to be in five or ten years. It's another thing entirely to write down specific, measurable, actionable goals you can start working toward right now.

 Staying in your comfort zone 

Your comfort zone is comfortable. Once you settle in and realize nothing is forcing you to move, it gets very easy to stay in your comfort zone, decorate it, kick up your feet, and call it a day. Your dreams and goals aren't going to happen unless you stand up and walk out into the unknown where you might look foolish, encounter awkward situations, or find unexpectedly challenging circumstances waiting.

Focusing more on external validation than internal 

This one is the most common of all. Money, promotions, and validation from others that you are successful can prevent many people from ever experiencing the kind of success that they truly desire. When you have enough material success that you stop listening to your inner desire for your true purpose. The work you're doing is OK, but it doesn't light you up. The external validation negates your own belief that more is possible. At the same time, the results of external validation lead you to a lifestyle that is a cage to possibility.
