Research Reveals the Top 4 Unbelievable Factors that Easily Prevent a Highly Capable Person Like You from Achieving Success.

Published

There are two types of people in relation to achieving success. Those who have given up on achieving it, and those who seem like they will be successful because they are headed in the right direction.

If you are reading this article, you fall into the second group because you somehow trust that you will meet prosperity. However, despite your hard work and faith, you might fail to achieve success because of the following reasons: –

  1. Choosing the wrong marriage partner

The Most Important Career Choice You Will Make is Who You Marry – Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook

Marrying someone ensures that you start thinking like him or her because constant interaction will ensure that you exchange your thoughts.

Remember thoughts are forms of energy, and energy is infectious. 

Therefore, there is a high chance that you will start thinking like your wife or husband after a certain period. So, if your partner entertains negative thoughts, or is fearful, and does not believe in big dreams, there is a high chance that, as time passes, you will be like him/her, and you might stop going after success.

  1. Fear

Most people who can succeed in life fail because they allow fear to take control. Fear is the greatest barrier to success because it prevents you from taking risks. Besides this, fear blocks creativity and shutdowns your cognitive abilities hence making it hard for you to solve certain problems or overcome hurdles that you might face on the journey to prosperity.

  1. Health issues

Some highly capable individuals failed to succeed because they fell ill while pursuing success. They had all the qualifications for success, but ill-health prevented them from grasping success because it made it impossible for them to work hard and focus on their goals.

  1. Lack of persistence

Lastly, persistence is the main thing that kicks highly capable people out of the game.  Many people start their journey to success with extreme dedication. However,  they fail to maintain this zeal when they face obstacles or when they do not achieve their goals after a long period of time.

5 Powerful Success Lessons We Can Learn From Benjamin Franklin

Published

on

I admire Benjamin Franklin because he succeeded in many fields. He was a successful politician, author, inventor, scientist and printer. He was also one of the founding fathers of America. I always wonder how he managed to achieve success in numerous fields. For this reason, I studied his life to realize his secrets of success.

After studying his life for a while, I realized powerful success lessons we can learn from this Great Man.

1.Read, Read and Read.

‘From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books.’ – Benjamin Franklin

Many successful people believe that reading breeds success because it leads to the accumulation of knowledge useful for succeeding. Maybe Benjamin Franklin knew this because he read a lot. He loved reading so much that he read his father’s religious texts because they were the main books his father possessed. His obsession with reading forced his father, Josiah Franklin, to apprentice him to a printer. Many scholars agree that his reading habit played a great role in making him a great man.

2.Never Ever Wait For The Right Moment

If you want to do something, do it. Never wait for the universe to perfectly arrange things for you before you take action.

In 1721, Benjamin Franklin’s brother founded a newspaper. Benjamin Franklin became highly interested in participating in the newspaper, but he believed his position would prevent his brother from allowing him to write. However, instead of waiting for his brother’s permission, he wrote letters and anonymously placed them in his brother’s print shop. People liked the letters so much that they wanted to know him.

Benjamin Franklin never waited for the right moment. He took action when he had an idea and his audacity paid off.

3.Associate With People With Similar Interests

You can progress quickly if you associate with people with similar interests because these folks will help you learn a lot about your field.

Benjamin Franklin knew this principle because he formed an association of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs when he was 21 years old. The association enabled Benjamin to become a better artist and businessman as its members regularly discussed about art and business.

4.Failure is Inevitable

All successful people including Benjamin Franklin failed on their way to success. Despite becoming one of America’s founding fathers, some of Benjamin Franklin’s political proposals were ignored. Furthermore, despite becoming a well-known author, some of his publications failed.

Benjamin Franklin understood that failure is part of success, and he continued writing and formulating more political proposals. He eventually became a successful politician and author.

5.Work, Work and Work

It’s said that Benjamin Franklin was obsessed with work. His biography reveals how he woke up early to work long hours. Besides this, some of his famous quotes such as ‘laziness makes things difficult, and hard work makes things easier’ proved he believed in a strong work-ethic.

Benjamin Franklin knew that his strong work-ethic played a huge role in making him succeed. In his famous essay, The Way to Wealth, he wrote, ‘If You Are Hardworking, You Will Never Starve.’

Conclusion

Just like other successful folks, Franklin was an ordinary individual who adopted the features of successful people. We can also adopt these features to guarantee a marvelous future.

5 Unbelievable Factors That Make People Work Extremely Hard

Published

on

Mentors, a strong purpose, and motivational stuff are some of the main factors that make people work extremely hard. However, there are other unique but not necessarily positive factors that make people work extremely hard.

Here are some of them:

  1. The Desire to Prove People Wrong

Many people have worked extremely hard because they wanted to prove the naysayers wrong. These folks wanted to show the people who doubted them that they can achieve greatness.

An example is Arnold Schwarzenegger. This guy worked extremely hard in his acting career because he wanted to prove wrong the people who told him that he won’t be a successful actor since he had a German accent, and a body that was too big for acting.

  1. Competition

Even though I have discouraged competition in my previous posts, I believe that it sometimes makes people work hard. Many bloggers, musicians, and business owners have worked hard because of the fierce competition in their niches. These folks knew that they would fail to secure a sizeable market share if their competitors outworked them.

  1. Faith

A large percentage of successful people succeeded because they had faith in their dreams. Faith made them completely sure that they’ll achieve their dreams if they worked harder, and therefore, it motivated them to work hard.

Recently, I realized that people who believe in the achievement of their dreams work harder than doubters. Doubt drains energy while faith motivates you to push yourself harder because you firmly know that success will come if you toil.

  1. Pain

People also work harder towards their goals if they believe that achieving them will eliminate pain. For instance, the pain of living in poverty motivated Eminem to work extremely hard towards a better life. In some of his songs, the rapper reveals how the pain he felt when he realized that his 9-5 salary could not sustain his family forced him to work very hard in music.

All the pain inside amplified by the fact that I can’t get by with my 9-5, and I can’t provide the right type of life for my family – Eminem, Lose Yourself

  1. The Need to Use Success As Revenge

“Success is the best revenge to pay you back.” – Eminem, Where I’m At.

I know people who are working so hard because they experienced rejection. These folks believe that working harder will make them meet success and make the people who rejected them regret.

Conclusion

Besides faith, the above factors show that you can use negative states of mind to push yourself harder. The main reason we are encouraged to use positive factors to push ourselves harder is that most of the time, factors such as pain, competition, the need to revenge and prove people wrong, work against us. These factors can be advantageous only if you approach them wisely.

What other unique factors do you know that can make people work harder?
