Before you achieve your goals, you first need to prepare yourself psychologically. There are quite a number of reasons why you are unsuccessful in life. Enemies are not always those bad guys you see around. You sometimes have to face enemies that are invisible but very pressing.
Stop Blaming Your HATERS and Blame YOURSELF
Understanding why you are unsuccessful in life: As you live today, whether you like it or not, you have enemies. Enemies are not always those people who work so hard to bring you down. They are not always those hiding in darkness to carry out their conspiracies against us. You can’t always blame Satan nor witches nor wizards for your failure to succeed in life.
Ask Yourself Why?
Have you checked your character?. Your problem might be right there inside ‘the kind of behavior’ you put up.
The truth is that sometimes we create enemies for ourselves. These enemies we create are invisible and very disastrous. They are the reasons why you are unsuccessful in your endeavors. I believe, after reading this post you will stop giving birth to an invisible enemy in your life.
A couple of months ago, I talked about some of the best ways to deal with enemies we see around. They could be our family members, friends, co-workers etc. They would smile at you but their hearts are full of hatred.
You may surely ask, what kind of enemies could be invisible and how do they drag your life backward?. Since we take so many actions to see our dreams come true, we also become responsible for every single step we take. Shortcut to success has its own consequences and repercussions. Hard work to success also has its or reward.
Knowing Your True Greatest Enemies And The Reasons Why You Are Unsuccessful In Life
You have the power to achieve whatever goal you set if you really mean it. It is time to forget about those guys you see around who hates almost everything you do; who never want to see you happy. Forget about them and deal with these intangible enemies who are more dangerous than anyone.
The actual reasons why you are unsuccessful might be;
- Your Character #1 (The Path Of Least Resistance): The first enemy you may not have noticed is “The Path Of Least Resistance“. This very concept is normally used to describe why an object or entity takes a given path.
So it tells you why you are unsuccessful in your life, business, career etc. This is where people seek the easiest way to achieve success. People try to find answers to problems with the most convenient approach and least extra-ordinary effort.
They always want to take shortcuts to reach their destination. They don’t mind breaking the laws nor the rules. People as such are often greedy, lazy and jealous. They always want quick ways to success, “get rich schemes” become their habit.
This enemy bites slowly, but its venom is very poisonous. You will end up with complicated problems because you didn’t have the patience to work hard, sweat to eat the fruits of your suffering.
Ask any gym instructor how you can build huge muscles and increase your energy level. He will probably summarise everything by saying, “NO PAIN NO GAIN.”
The Bible condemns anyone who uses a shortcut to success. You will pay the price at full at last. It is not easy to see your dreams come true. You have to be bold enough to face your challenges. Endure the pain and you will have the “golden grail‘ that no one would ever be able to take it away from you.
“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. ” (Psalms 126:5)
The pains are part of your journey to success, don’t lament too much. Conquer this invisible enemy which is the actual reason why you are successful in life with hard work and perseverance.
2. Your Character #2 (The Expediency Factor)
The second worst enemy you may not have noticed, but one major reason why you are unsuccessful is known as ” The Expediency Factor.” The situation here is even worse than the enemy who pulls a knife on you in broad daylight. This principle states that:
“ People invariably seek the fastest and easiest way to get the things they want right now, with little or no concern for the long-term consequences of their behaviors.”
Those who fall into this category, never mind the outcome of their actions. Think about those who go in for “blood money.” Yes, they kill and perform rituals to get money.
There Is A Battle Going On In Your Head
Each day, there is a battle going on in your head. You must be strong enough to defeat that invisible enemy. Exercise self-control, discipline yourself to avoid immediate pleasure which fades like smoke within seconds.
You dearly need money, establish a business, buy something etc. but the means are not there. It’s challenging though, but you have to discipline your self. Work hard without giving up and surely you will be able to achieve your lofty aims.
Let me remind you that, there are rules, laws, systems, norms, values etc. that govern us. Do you think you have a very good reason to kill or destroy someone to get what you want?. I don’t think so.
It doesn’t matter, no matter how you need that money, car, house, girl, boy etc. If it’s not yours, you can’t have them by force. Take your time, pass through the right channel. Establish your self and stand firm like a rooted tree and your success will be evergreen.
Keep your eyes on these two intangible enemies. Don’t let your frustrations bring you pains nor failure in the end.
After knowing about the two unpopular reasons why you are unsuccessful in life. You have to change your character for good. Discipline yourself to get stuck to your goals as well as the rules of the game.
