According to Jim Rohn, Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the fundamentals.
Success isn’t complicated. But like financially illiterate individuals can’t understand how to become wealthy, or health-illiterate individuals can’t understand how to lose weight, success can look impossible to achieve. But success — true, lasting success is within your grasp. It is possible. It is available, to every person, at this moment.
Right now, you can make a decision to become a student of success. You can start on a journey that will take you to a future where everything you want is possible. The principles to get there aren’t easy, but they are simple.
If you want to achieve true, lasting success in your life. You need to stay away from somethings. And if you seem to fall in all these categories below, you can never be successful in life unless you change your ways. Below are the types of men that can never make it in life;
1. The Man Who Does Not Plan
A planless man is a purpose-less man. He doesn’t have a well stated-out goal for his life and desires to live his life on a day-to-day basis. He may have dreams, but trust me, they’ll never turn to reality because he didn’t have the discipline to write, articulate and strategize enough to bring his dreams and visions to reality.
2. An Unadventurous Man
The land of success is not a place for men and women who are not willing to step out of the norm and try new things.
3. The Man Who Let Fear Becloud His Sense Of Reasoning
For every milestone achievement, there will always be a million and one reasons why you shouldn’t make a move. But men who don’t allow their fears to rule them someway, somehow, always make it to the other side of the sea of life -where their success resides.
4. Men Who Never Seek Advice
These are men who don’t understand the power of communicating sound minds. Many great men always go to seek advice for areas they are not conversant with, but a man who will never be successful doesn’t realize that the solution to his problem may be on the lips of an adviser.
5. Men Who Sleep Too Much
Sleep is a necessity, but should never be overdone. It would shock you to know that most of the richest men on earth, start their days before 7 am, while many unsuccessful men are still snoring their beds around that time. Have you heard of the saying about early birds getting the fastest worms?
6. Men Who Don’t Understands Seasons And Times
If you talk with successful men, you will discover that they generally seem to know the right time to do things. From the correct type of investment, to when to pull out from a line of business to another, without breaking the flow of wealth towards them.
7. The Man Who Does Not Understand That Money Is A Seed And Such Should Be Invested
Successful men have a general understanding of the use of money. These men understand that money is wealth in it’s ‘liquid’ form and, as such, is capable of creating more wealth, through strategic investment. Unsuccessful men, don’t have the slightest clue about this and go on to spend all the cash at their disposal.
8. Men Who Do Not Understand The Power Of Giving And Receiving
There has never been, and there will never be a truly successful man who doesn’t understand the universal law of giving and receiving. That is why the richest of men are the most liberal.
9. Men Who Are Still Stuck With In Past
This happens a lot, especially if your past story seems better at present. However, it is not meant to be so.
On the other hand, your past may have been so full of downtimes that you’re afraid of giving another try at life or that business that seemed to fail. Successful men know when to let go of their past and look on to God and the future for better things; unsuccessful men don’t.
10. Men Who Don’t Work hard
Unsuccessful men have big dreams and aspirations but seldom put in the necessary work to attain the desired success. As such, their success remains a mind thing, while successful men work hard and smart until they achieve their goals.
11. Men Who Lack Internal Motivation
Unsuccessful men always need an external push to make a move towards achieving their dreams. We sometimes need internal motivation, but what happens when there’s no one to cheer you on?
Many unsuccessful men are still waiting on somebody to get them started in life, forgetting that sometimes, your path will never cross with your destiny helpers until you make a move.
12. Men Who Are Not Disciplined Enough To Evaluate Themselves
For me, this is the greatest point, because a man can only tell himself the truth when he has taken time to evaluate himself -his short-falls, strengths, gains and even his losses.
Successful men, take out days to evaluate themselves, their businesses and their lives, but many unsuccessful men do not give a thought to self-evaluation.
