Stop dreaming, take a deep breath, and start doing what you want, make it come true. If you think about it, what you can lose in relation to what you can gain, without a doubt, is a risk worth taking.
The life you dream of is waiting for you a few steps ahead of the fear you feel.
2. You don’t follow advice
You may listen to advice, but you don’t put it into practice. Doing things correctly does not happen by osmosis. Listen, absorb, execute.
However, this does not mean that you should do everything you are told. Do not listen to constructive criticism from someone who has not built anything; listen, learn and do what you feel is right.
This is one of the great tips to be a millionaire, listen to advice from people who are where you want to be.
3. You do not have a north
How you do things is more important than what you are doing. Ask yourself where you want to go, what your goals are and what you are doing to achieve them. You need a logical process.
For this, the invitation is that you define your life purpose and implement an action plan that brings you closer to this life project every day.
4. Not being aware of your progress
If you don’t measure your progress, how do you know you’ve made progress?
If you are not aware of what you are doing, and how far you are going, you will not know what the next step is. Don’t let the day-to-day rush prevent you from seeing a more global perspective.
Take a moment out of the week to evaluate what you have done, how far you have progressed and what things you have to improve. What is not measured, is not improved.
5. You don’t spend time meeting new people
If you are always surrounded by the same people, with the same aspirations and the same routine, you will never reach your potential because you will never see life with different eyes.
This is one of the tips from one of the richest men in Asia, dedicate a part of your income and time to meet new people, as this will open up a panorama of perspectives that will make you feel more vital and motivated.
Also, when you spend time getting to know other people, you will be building your network of contacts, something vital to success.
6. Negative thoughts
“I’m not good enough…” Stop repeating these phrases that keep you from success. If you don’t believe in yourself how do you expect others to?
Celebrate every achievement you make, you deserve it. Work on your self-esteem, trust your abilities and say goodbye to the limiting beliefs that prevent you from growing.
One of the keys to reaching 100% of your potential is to develop your mental discipline, which consists of the ability to dominate your thoughts to achieve the results you want.
7. Wait for the perfect moment
Perfection leads to postponement, and this, to not executing your plans.
So if you are waiting for the perfect moment, it is clear that you are cultivating attitudes that keep you from success and wealth.
Remember that there will not be a perfect time to achieve your goals. The path will not always be ideal, but you must take the first step and work for your dreams.
Better could not say Tim Ferriss it’s your book The 4-Hour Workweek:
Are you waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights will never turn green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to accommodate things either.
Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave. The pros and cons lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and course-correct as you go.”
8. Unreasonable reasons
Reasons are excuses disguised with makeup. So stop making nonsense reasoning. Rather, look for reasons to do what you dream of and work for it.
Because if you don’t do it, what for you can be an excuse, for another person can be a motivation to do it. It all depends on your perspective on life, and how much you cultivate a positive mindset.
9. You seek the approval of others
Stop looking for approval from other people. If you wait for someone to encourage you to take the first step, you’re not going to get anywhere. You are on a mission, and you are the leader.
When you seek the approval of others, you will be living under the expectations of others, and since something will always be missing to satisfy them, you will constantly be missing something to be happy.
Without a doubt, seeking the approval of others is one of the most effective attitudes to ward off success and wealth in your life. For without happiness, there will be nothing.
10. It doesn’t matter how, only the result
The process is more important than the goal. Reaching success and 100% of your potential is like exercising.
Every day you must dedicate time to work on what you want to achieve and not give up. There will be difficult moments but perseverance is key.
Don’t let the goal stop you from enjoying the process, as many times the reward is not about what you achieve but what you have become to achieve it.
In conclusion, put aside these attitudes that keep you from success and wealth, and start developing new mental habits that align you with the most important goals in your life.
Surely neither today nor tomorrow you will achieve it, but with perseverance, you will begin to get closer to living to your full potential.
