Here’s why you aren’t successful at anything in life. Fixing these aspects may help you become financially independent today!
The billionaire Warren Buffet once told:
“The difference between successful people and really successful people, is that really successful people say no to almost everything” – Warren Buffet
With that out of the way, let’s dive right into it.
Why are you not successful? Here are the top six scientifically proven reasons why you may not be successful at anything. These are really high-quality reasons.
The biggest reason why you aren’t successful is:
You ask the wrong question!
How do I know that? First of all, you wouldn’t be reading this article 😀 Alright now pay attention. The ONLY difference between you and all the rich and famous people or whoever you want to compare yourself is the following: they ask better questions, so they get better answers. That is the only difference.
For example, you start an Amazon shop, trying to make some side money. It’s hard at first, you see no results nobody is buying your shit, it is so difficult in the beginning. Now, most of the people in this situation would ask “Why is my shit not selling?”, That is the question they would ask. Oh, son, that’s an entirely BS question, because if you ask this, you are going to end up with a shit answer. The better the question, the better the response. ASK BETTER QUESTION!
Your problem is you don’t sell right, Instead of asking “Why can’t I sell anything?”, you should ask “How could I sell something?“, You see? How the quality of the question changed in an instant? Now when you ask this type of question your brain automatically is going to think of some solution, ways to solve your problem. Thinking leads to action, and action leads to results, so results lead to money.
Do you get this? 99 % of the people ask the wrong question all the time, “Why are my grades bad?”, “Why are my parents poor?”, “Why am I so fat?”. These kinds of question will lead to wrong answers (DON’T ASK THINGS LIKE THAT!). An answer that will not serve you in any way. So make sure always to ask the right question, this is the only difference between you and the man with the millions.
Qualitative question lead to qualitative answers, qualitative answers lead to action, action leads to results and results lead to cash.
The questions you ask yourself on a daily basis control your life. So always be aware not to ask the wrong question!
The second biggest reason why you aren’t successful is:
You dabble and then quit, you don’t fully commit to something!
99 % of the people stop something when they face a challenge or a problem, let’s say you sell t-shirts online, it’s kind of hard at first, you put in all the work, and you almost get nothing in return.
Or another example, you see an article on how to make $1000 a day online, you see him talking about affiliate marketing in the article (First and foremost to really succeed big in affiliate marketing you need to have a brand), and you give it a shot, you try affiliate marketing, you pay for some courses, some startup costs and all that, you try it and months later, you still didn’t even get the money back you put in to all of this.
NOW 99% of the people stop at that moment; they quit, they say this is not working. This is hard. I can’t do it. Now that is where 99 % of the people stop. They stop when It’s not working for the first time (HUGE MISTAKE)
And the 1 % who keeps going through the challenges is the one who not just succeed, but they end up with far more than success, legacy, pride, money & wealth.
Did you know we people are unimaginable pros in finding a reason why we can’t? You see all the reasons why you can’t. But not a single reason why you can.
They try a way to make money, but as soon as some difficulties come up they quit and try the next thing
That person is called a dabbler. They go through everything in life, they taste everything, but they never commit to one thing. And then you meet these people telling you, ah man don’t go to the gym I tried it for a year, and I’m still fat. It’s not working. (Be careful of those people)
If you don’t want their life, don’t take their advice.
Whatever you do in life, whatever you start, you are going to face challenges, you are going to meet these moments of I can’t do this. I will fail. I will never succeed. First of all, if these moments appear ask better questions, how I told you before, asking the right question leads to the correct answer.
You should start something, no matter what may it fitness, selling products online, real estate. Start it and commit to it. Commit means stick to it at least a decade. Alright, now I probably shocked you, Suheyl a decade? Not even close to 1% do that, 99% stop after the first month (And that is why they will never succeed at anything in life!), but if you keep on going eventually one day you will succeed. Because if you think “Hey ill just start this one thing and make some money and go to the next thing” then I’m sorry, but that is not how life works. The faster you earn money, the quicker you can lose it.
Now, remember, whatever you are trying to succeed in, as soon as you face a challenge keep pushing. Failure is necessary for success. Its impossible to succeed without failure (or if you are intelligent you can learn from the failures of successful people and avoid their’s on your success path. Ingenious way to succeed.)
The third most significant reason why you aren’t successful is:
You don’t value time!
Unsuccessful people don’t value their time. They are everywhere, anywhere, anytime because they lack the ability to dedicate their time towards their goals. And year after year they make new promises which never come to fruition simply because they couldn’t be bothered to put in the time required towards their goals. Time management skills, learning how to say no and knowing what commitments to undertake, is a step towards great success in any area of our lives.
Don’t Waste time on things that don’t matter = Don’t waste time on things that won’t make a massive difference in life!
The fourth biggest reason why you aren’t successful is:
You have the wrong friends!
Did you know that you are the average of the five closest people to you? That is because you spend most of the time with them, so you unconsciously start adopting their belief & mindset. Now, this could be a good thing and likewise a bad thing.
If the five people closest to you are broke, then you probably are/will too. Now statistics don’t apply to everyone, but most of the time that is the case.
And even more interesting did you know if you hang around 4 millionaires you will be the fifth? When I heard that i was shocked. Having the right friends is like a cheat code. For example, if you spend one day with a millionaire, you will see his morning habits, his routine, the things he is doing, the mindset he has, how he talks to other people. You start to look at how a successful person lives and unconsciously start adapting their mindset and strategies. That is very good. It helps you become a person of value.
“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future” – Dan Pena
Dan Pena the 50 billion dollar man said to write down all of your goals on the right side of a paper. Then on the left side write down every single person you meet within a week. From Sunday midnight till next Sunday midnight. Write down every person you meet, doesn’t matter who, if it’s your girlfriend, your side chick, your boss or your skype friend. At the end of the week compare the people you met to your goals. Do they even match up?
It just shows you how many people you hang around who aren’t related to your goals. They do not help you achieve your goals in any way, but you still spend 4 hours a week with them. Avoid these people. The more you hang around people which help your goals or are related to your goals the faster you will achieve them. I promise 🙂
The fifth biggest reason why you aren’t successful is:
You procrastinate (98 % of people are infected with this poison)
“Procrastination is the thief of time” – Suheyl Ünüvar
The funny thing about this one is that they are usually self-proclaimed procrastinators. They see no shame in it. This goes back to them never understanding the value of time. They are okay with living a life that keeps up with yesterday. They live life as though they have another one in the bank. Let’s see how round one goes and if all else fails we press next or rewind or pause. Understanding that you start dying the moment you are born and wisdom to realize that every day is a gift and you owe it to yourself to do everything you can do in those twenty-four hours because nothing’s ever promised today tomorrow.
Scientists say “95 % of people procrastinate.”
To me, the key finding from the study by Dianne Tice and Roy Baumeister is this:
“The present evidence suggests that procrastinators enjoy themselves rather than working at assigned tasks, until the rising pressure of imminent deadlines forces them to get to work. In this view, procrastination may derive from a lack of self-regulation and hence a dependency on externally imposed forces to motivate work.”
Self-regulation, self-control, willpower, are all things that we overestimate. We think: “Yeah sure, I will write a novel in 3 weeks.”
In our minds, we’re all geniuses and mentally healthy. But when the work comes, we cop out.
If you’re a procrastinator, you can’t help but delay work. And that’s true for the small and big tasks.
Sure, everybody fears to step outside of their comfort zone — that’s why we call them comfort zones. It takes courage to make a bold move.
But it sure doesn’t take any courage to complete small tasks like paying bills, printing out something for your boss, doing taxes, etc.
The truth is: Procrastination has nothing to do with what you’re trying to do — small or big, it can wait until later. It can always expect, right?
The sixth and last biggest reason why you aren’t successful is:
You don’t take massive amounts of action!
To succeed you need to take massive, unbelievable amounts of action. Everyone wants to be successful, but to differentiate from those who are and those who aren’t you need to take massive action. Massive action means 10x everything. 10x all of your efforts. For example let’s say you work 8 hours a day, 10x that, but now you ask me Suheyl how the f*ck am I supposed to work 80 hours a day? Massive action doesn’t only mean work harder, it also means working more productive. Not wasting any time, whatever you are doing try to 10x it if you post one blog posts a week post 10. Do you understand that? This is crucial for success.
The path to success is massive, determined action.
The six biggest reasons (sorted by how heavy it affects your success) why you aren’t successful are:
- You ask the wrong question!
- You dabble and quit; you don’t fully commit to something!
- You don’t value time!
- You have the wrong friends!
- You procrastinate (98 % of people are infected with this position)
- You don’t take massive amounts of action!
I still believe asking the right question is the most important thing to achieve the millionaire status. By the way, not just me thinks that tony the legend robbins also explained that in his book “Robbins Power Principle.”
Fix the six points above, and you are on the right track of creating a successful life.
