Knowing why most people don't succeed in life will be a useful tool to help you get to where you want to be. There are commonalties why most people do not accomplish their dreams and goals which we will go over in this article. The most common reasons are fear, social pressure, and habits. Here are the three main reasons why most people don't succeed in life so you can steer clear this path.
Fear drives people in two ways. Action or inaction. The fear of failing keeps these people where they always have been. The fear dictates them into not taking action, which then is followed by them justifying their decision in some way. Fear is a primal instinct in human beings which includes the most successful people on the planet. The difference between the failures and the successful is that the successful feel fear and they still act regardless. The unsuccessful feel fear and stand still.
The unsuccessful are often times those who fall in line. They go along with the status quo of society. Never acting on their own beliefs and interests. Society pressures people into a sequence of events from the time you are born until the time you pass away. The ones who succeed in life realize that in order to accomplish extraordinary results, you have to act extraordinarily. If you do what the majority do you will have what the majority have. If you do what the extraordinary do, you will have what the extraordinary have.
The things you do in your life dictate the outcomes of your life. Everything comes down to what you do. Right now at this very second what are you doing? Are you building habits that will last you a lifetime? The actions you take every day create patterns in your life. From very minute decisions to big ones. The more you do something over and over again determines your life. This comes in the form of the thoughts you think, the food you eat, and the choices you make religiously. An example of an unsuccessful person looks like this. This person has negative thoughts about their life everyday, they choose unhealthy foods to eat, they watch television and entertainment, and create these poor habits until they are engrained in them for their entire life. Successful people do the exact opposite. They wake up early, have positive thoughts about their life, eat healthy foods, and educate themselves in the forms of books and audio tapes from other successful people religiously.
