One of my biggest joy in life is to listen to people telling me about their lives.
And from my conversations, I have discovered three very common problems that are stopping these people from becoming successful.
I must say that this surprised me.
After all, when we talk about success traits, we talk about being hardworking, having patience, and having perserverance.
Most people who get agitated easily expend an enormous amount of emotions. This result in a heavy loss of focus and energy, which affected their output detrimentally.
Successful people tend to have good control of their emotions.
Because they are able to see the bigger picture and they realize that by not letting their emotions run loose, they can reach their goals smoother and faster.
Most people don’t think about their purpose because either they don’t know how to or they don’t think that it’s important to.
Here’s 3 questions to ask yourself:
1. When you’re in your younger days, what is one thing that you have always wanted to do but did not due to fear or discouragements?
2. Look at your future self. What is the one thing that you will regret not doing when you’re younger?
3. What is the one thing that you are willing to do, even if it’s for free?
Our purpose are usually pretty selfless. They often serve the greater good rather than just for ourselves.
Even if you don’t find your purpose immediately, it’s okay. It usually takes a while to find it.
Many people are stuck in inaction because they are waiting for the perfect time.
When they have the perfect skills. When they have the perfect shape. When they are in the perfect situation. When they have more resources. When they have everything perfect, then they’ll start.
Of course, most people who wait for the perfect moment to arrive will never start, since there’s no such thing as a perfect time. So, start now.
