Nobody wants to suck, everybody wants to be a hero, a success.
Why then, aren’t more people successful?
And I don’t mean successful in a widely accepted, what society says kind of sense, but what success means for you.
Let’s face it, there’s always something to improve.
Many things, we aren’t even aware of.
What are the hidden factors that’s causing us to suck?
Lack of Awareness
The number one reason why people don’t get the success that they want is this:
Earlier on, either it was me, running around like a headless chicken, just chasing what’s the next hot fad.
Or, it was me, just plain clueless about what I want to do.
Because I didn’t have an awareness, or wasn’t deliberate about developing an awareness on what I wanted, what success meant for me, and what it took to get that, I wasn’t taking any steps closer to success.
And the awareness, and the drive to develop and have it, is drowned out by what the world says which catches our attention, and gives us instant pleasure, but won’t satisfy us on a deep, meaningful level for the rest of our lives.
Why aren’t we getting success?
Because there are things which we are still not aware of.
Things that we don’t know.
There are many ways that laziness hides in our lives.
When I was tired, I justified just “vegging-out” and watching videos nonstop was alright.
I thought I was recharging, but instead, I was just draining my energy and will to move, away.
Or when there’s something tedious that needs to be done, and instead of getting to work, or even getting to work finding a better way, you just give up.
I just gave up. I felt work was too hard, and approaching random strangers was too hard. So I just gave up.
I got lazy.
I secretly wish that a magic fairy would come down and grant me my wish, for the limited amount of work and effort that I would put into it.
Worst of all, I would label that “working smart.”
What I’m working on too tough? I need a break, then swoosh, off to facebook, youtube, or whatever.
Everything, except to pour effort into what I was doing.
Which, supposedly, was supposed to get the success that I wanted.
How does laziness hide in our life? Through the things that we allow ourselves to do, but know that it doesn’t contribute to our well-being and success.
For me, instead of watching videos and “vegging-out,” I’ve found it better to sleep instead; get myself a nap.
Don’t let laziness and the stories we tell ourselves get in the way.
Because I thought I was a pretty humble guy, and right there, is a sign that I’m not.
I used to think that I got my pride under control, but as it turns out, it was actually invading all the different parts of my life.
Then, I was so afraid of talking to and meeting strangers, I couldn’t get anything done.
I chalked it up to “the kind of person that I was.”
That was my ego, my pride talking, because it didn’t want to be hurt.
I didn’t want to be hurt. From the rejection, and the failure that was looming in front of me.
What does throwing away pride look like? Doing whatever it takes, even if you fell you look like a fool, to get what you want.
Getting better is a process. Focus on getting a little bit better, each day.
And watch as you get better, and there is less and less room for these factors that cause you to suck, to hide.
Bring it all out into the open, who you are.
