Don't Sabatoge Your Success

So often we sabotage our own success and don’t even realize how we do it. You ask how do we do this? It happens when we continue to think negative thoughts and it also comes from all of the negative talking that we do. Whenever we don't learn from our mistakes and we keep doing the same old things day in and day out we are setting ourselves up for failure.

The greatest mistake we can ever make is staying within our comfort zone and never challenging ourselves to go above and beyond the call of duty. When we keep associating with the same old people that have no desire themselves to become great, then we are in essence paving the way for our own failure. In essence if you keep doing what you have always done you will keep getting what you have always gotten.

We must continually ask better quality questions. For it is the process of questioning that allows us to achieve success. How can I do this better? Is there another process that will enable me to cut costs by 50%? What exactly can I do right now that’s going to catapult my career into a new direction? Who can help me achieve my major goals in life? How can they help me? The questions that we ask can help define who we are and help to unlock that hidden potential that dwells within.

If we never take an assessment of ourselves, our talent and ability and see what we are truly good at then we are setting ourselves up for failure, and ultimately sabotaging our success. When we truly understand our purpose or our assignment so to speak then we can become a success in this life.

If we never understand what motivates us, drives us, gives us happiness, passion, excitement and enthusiasm then we can never go down the road of success. It takes self awareness to be truly successful. We must be committed to taking ourselves to the next level and believing that all things are possible.

If we can consistently give it our best effort nothing can deny us our end result. It’s our ability to keep our eyes on the prize while minimizing the distractions and obstacles that takes us far beyond greatness and eventually enables us to fulfill our destiny.

To Your Great Success
