10 Things That Stop You From Living Victoriously
We all want to be successful in life and we all know that success doesn’t happen overnight.
It is something you have to work hard and smart at.
You know that any form of progress requires taking the necessary steps that will get you where you want to be.
The question is: Do you know what you need to avoid to begin reaching your goals and living victoriously?
There are things you are doing or entertaining that are preventing you from living victoriously.
So, let’s talk about some of those things so you can begin living the life of a winner.
Dwelling on regrets.
People make mistakes in life but the difference between winners and real failures is that winners refuse to dwell on their mistakes.
They refuse to be defined by what they did in the past and they don’t have time to focus on regrets.
Dwelling on regrets or what you should or should not have done has the power to stop you from living a victorious life.
Putting off what needs to be done today for the following day or the next will cause you to pile up on work and fail to reach any of your set goals.
Procrastination is the enemy of success and the thief of time.
Think about what could have happened if Jeff Bezos chose procrastination and refused to act on his vision after deciding to act.
He may not be the world’s wealthiest man today and perhaps we wouldn’t have the convenience and ease that Amazon brings.
Being controlled by your failures.
Your “I can’t” attitude needs to be replaced with an “I can still make it” attitude if you are to succeed in anything you do.
Fear of failure and allowing your failure to control you is what’s stopping you from not only experiencing what the life of a victor is like but living it.
One other thing that is stopping you from living a life centered on success is the fact that you don’t have faith in yourself.
You only believe in yourself when someone else tells you that you have what it takes.
That is no way to live your life.
Stop doubting yourself and start chasing your dreams.
The only way you can stop doubting yourself is by having a life purpose and being courageous enough to begin working on your ideas.
Failing to apply what you read or learn.
I read a quote this morning from Ralph Waldo Emmerson.
He said, “Some books leave us free and some books make us free.”
It’s so true!
Some books give you the freedom you desire.
Whether its financial freedom, academic freedom, or the freedom to live the life you want.
But here’s the thing… these books will only bring about the freedom you seek if you apply what they teach you.
You may be asking yourself why some books that have changed other people’s lives are failing to change yours.
The answer is simple.
You are not practicing what you learn from the books you read.
Improve your life and be triumphant in life by practicing what you learn from the life-changing books, articles, audios, and videos you acquire.
Jealousy is the emotion that springs from failing to live your life the way you are meant to.
You become envious of other people’s successes when you spend more time dwelling on their achievements and less time concentrating on your personal development.
Paying attention to every move that “so and so” makes will undoubtedly prevent you from succeeding and making progress in your own life.
Refusing to listen to advice from the right people.
Seeking advice and taking advice from the right people is not a sign of weakness.
It is an indication that you are on the right path and a sign that you are going places that most people only dream of.
Get rid of the urge to refuse guidance by adopting a “There is always room to learn” mentality.
Not accepting help when you need it.
One of the top qualities shared by some of the most accomplished people in the world is the ability to accept help when they need it.
Rejecting aid or assistance is one of the things stopping you from succeeding in your various endeavors.
Surrounding yourself with pessimists.
You know what I’m talking about. You hear these types of things all the time…
- “There is no way of making this happen”
- “This sort of thing isn’t for people like us”
- “Let’s just throw in the towel and wait for the right people to do it.”
If the people you spend most of your time with are known for these kinds of statements, you need to change your inner circle.
Find people who are excited about life.
People who will encourage you to live your life to the full and people who will accept your optimistic tendencies.
Failing to prioritize your health.
At the end of the day, the only thing that can enable you to live a victorious life is perfect overall health.
Failing to prioritize your health can give rise to illnesses that will make winning in life difficult if not impossible.
So it’s important that routine physical exercise, eating healthy every day, and improving your mental health should top your list of things you cannot do without.
If you continue to work at eliminating these things from your life, you will achieve that victory you are looking for.
Just remember that you are in control!
You might not be able to control the things that happen to you and in your life, but you sure do have control on how you respond to it.
