Success Development – Are You Preventing Yourself From Becoming A Success In Life?
Are you working towards your success in life or have you been waiting to start when the time is right? When you look at job opportunities do you find you would not fit because you lack qualifications or experience or they might be better for a younger or older person? In other words, are you placing obstructions in your own path with excuses that result in your doing nothing? Your success development will only start when you do. Now is the time to start.
Now Is The Time To Act
The best time to start working on your success development is now and it always will be. Procrastination is an insidious killer of dreams – it will steal yours if you do not take care. We only have the present – each minute, each hour and each day that eventually amount to years. They are lost years if you let excuses stop you from acting now. They may not seem excuses to you, as they can come in the form of logical, practical thought and disguise themselves as well thought-out reasons.
Are you a dreamer?
There is nothing wrong with dreaming – most successful achievements started with someone dreaming – but there is something wrong with being a dreamer if that is all you ever do and you want to become a success in life. Dreaming can make you feel comfortable for a time. You can dream yourself into anything you want to be, which can give you the same feelings as if you were actually that person, doing those things you find exciting or satisfying. You can achieve whatever you want or be whom ever you want to be in your mind, but without action it will stay there.
Are you afraid?
Is fear holding you back from your success development? Have you wanted to turn desires into realities but felt nervous or frightened to take the first step? Fear is natural – everyone feels fear at some stage. If you talk to successful people in business, sports or entertainment, many will tell you they still feel nervous and apprehensive before an important meeting, match or performance. Fear is not a good enough reason not to act now.
Taking action is the key
It’s a bit of a vicious circle: fear can stop you from taking action yet action can drive away fear. It can also drive away self-doubt and worry. If you can act in spite of fear, in spite of self-doubt or in spite of worry, you will defeat these three barriers to your success development. If you cannot defeat them, they will defeat you and rob you of your dreams and your potential.
Anthony Robbins speaks of “Mastering Your Mind”, and this is what you have to do. This means training your mind to think in a positive way so you will not be afraid to take action. Power of mind is the strongest power you have. Use it to dispel fear and doubt: fear of failure and doubt in yourself. Take action now and defeat these enemies to your success in life.
