MANA Group Ask: What Is Holding You Back?
NEW YORK, NY, July 2014 – MANA Group focus on making people, regardless of their age, industry, background, etc. Some of the reasons people are successful in entrepreneurship are obvious, yet some of them are surprising.
Are any of the following things holding you back from success? If so, how are you going to tackle them head-on today so you can ultimately be successful?
Here are 9 things that hold people back from success:
When people think about what they want to do in life and what they may have to change or give up to get there, they get scared. It’s human nature. Most people think going after their dreams is a big risk, but it’s really just skewed perception. The real risk is not giving yourself the opportunity to be great and staying where you are in life, only to regret not chasing your passions.
They Just “Kinda” Want It
When you want to be successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.The sad truth is, most people want to hang out with their friends, watch TV, or even sleep more than they want to be successful. If you want to be success, go after something with 100% of your passion and effort!
They Don’t Bounce Back
If you haven’t noticed, life isn’t easy sometimes. In fact, if you are chasing lofty goals, there’s going to be a lot of resistance. Whether it is internal conflicts in the mental, emotional, or physical realms or external pressures like doubt from others or competitors attempting to shoot you down and stop you from achieving your goals, it is obvious that the people who are being held back from success are those who don’t bounce back.
We all struggle to stay motivated every single day. Even the hungriest of individuals have trouble not hitting the snooze button every once-in-a-blue-
They Don’t Share
Helping others may be the single biggest thing you can do to catapult your way to success quickly. Don’t hoard your network, knowledge, or anything else for that matter. Successful people are happy to make introductions between two people who may benefit from knowing one another, mentor others who may need a helping hand, and build a community of others to connect with around them.
They Don’t Surround Themselves With Winners
Many people are held back from being successful because they associate with the wrong groups and types of people. If you associate with negative people, people who aren’t successful, and people who aren’t motivated, then you will soon develop these unfortunate traits in your own personality. This includes your love life – your significant other may be holding you back from success if he/she isn’t pushing you to chase after your goals and become a better person. Similarly, you need to have peers, mentors, and communities that challenge you and pull you up to their level of success rather than drag you down when you are attempting greatness.
They Listen To Too Many People
It may seem obvious, but many people who haven’t achieved success yet suffer from taking too much advice. People who are being held short of success need to filter the good advice from the bad advice and listen to fewer, more strategic people…
They Don’t Listen To The Right People
Most successful people have multiple mentors to call upon who can guide them in the proper direction in pursuit of their goals. Whether it’s a coach, boss, professor, industry veteran, or other experienced person, these folks are goldmines for information about achieving your goals. Many people who are short of their goals are depriving themselves of this amazing resource, and by not listening to the right people, they are missing out on chances to be successful.
They Haven’t Defined What Success Is
It differs for each person, but the people who don’t have success defined for themselves will never achieve it because they don’t know what the benchmark is. It has been shown time and time again that those who have goals achieve more than those who don’t, and people who write down their goals are even more successful than the people who have goals but fail to convert them to paper and pencil.
People that are falling short of success may not know what type of lifestyle, job, or platform they are reaching for, which probably means they will never find it.
Whether these points can be directed to someone else you know or perhaps even yourself, note that all these points are things you can control! So get out there and chase after success!
