You have heard all those motivational speeches; get up and get going, work hard, do not give up, keep trying, learn from your mistakes and do not lose faith or other maxims like that. This actually applies to all aspects of our life like marriage and how couples are asked to learn some tricks to keep your marriage fresh and happening. However, how would you feel that there are some things that you have to give up if you want to get ahead in life? We are sure this will make a refreshing change from all the things that you are told that you ought to be doing.
Here Is A Fresh Take On The Whole Thing With A List Of Things To Keep Away From To Be A Success:
Do not have any doubts about your own self: The first rule of being successful, happy and rich has to be that you should have complete confidence in yourself which can only come about when you are able to rid yourself of all doubts regarding all aspects of your persona. Once doubt sets in, then its’ best friend failure will soon follow suit.
Stop thinking negative things: The second thing that you have to keep from letting yourself get into is the mire of negative thoughts. Negative thoughts can be like a quicksand that can slowly creep up and keep you entangled in its tendrils to never let you out. This is something that is easier said than done, but avoiding negative thoughts is the very foundation of a good life.
Avoid fearing failure: One of the things that keeps us down and keeps us from attempting things is the fear that we are going to fail at what we are attempting to do. This is a fear that most of us face when we are undertaking something that is not part of the our comfort zone. We start fearing that we are going to fail and this keeps us from even getting started which can be a big disaster.
Keep away from saying bad things about yourself and others: They say that the whole world is full of vibrations; both good and bad. It is only when we surround yourself with positive vibes that good things happen and this will never come about when you are criticizing yourself and others.
Stop being and saying negative things about your life: While being self-critical can pay off when it comes to improving oneself, it is important to draw the line and stop one from giving into negativity. The more negative you are about yourself, the more it will feed itself and grow to such an extent that it will tend to swallow all the good and positive things in your life. So avoid this.
Refrain from waiting and procrastinating: If you are going to sit around and wait for chance to smile upon you, there is a big likelihood that you are not going to smile. If you take a look at all the people who have made a success of themselves, then the one thing that you will realize that they have never done is procrastinate. You will see that they have always taken things in hand, taken control of the situation and move ahead. This should be your mantra too.
Avoid fearing success: This may seem counter intuitive, but people often do a lot of things to make something happen but refrain from bringing it to a completion as they fear success. It is not as much success that they fear but the fact that the success they have achieved may not please them as much as they thought it would, which is what they fear. Avoid this fear of success so that you can reach the heights that you want to touch.
Do not try to please people around: While we are definitely not advising that you should be rude or offensive, it never works to be a people pleaser. And that is because the truth is really simple; you cannot please everyone and by trying to do so you will be letting down the one person who matters a lot – you! Once you grasp this simple truth, you will realize that the key to happiness for yourself and that of others is to be true to one self and keep working at it.
We have given you plenty of points to ponder and lots of fruit for thought. All you need to do to get along in life and reach the heights of success and happiness that you want to achieve is to avoid these stumbling blocks. Is it easy to do this? Maybe not, but once you avoid the aspects mentioned above, you will find that you will smile more often and so will life.
