5 Decisions That Stop You From Succeeding

Category: self-development Published: Monday, 06 August 2018 Written by Afrimazon

Life hates to dictate for us, which is why Mother Nature implanted in us the faculty of the freedom of choice. What this means is that, you can choose the way you want to live your life. If you are financially ill, it is not because poverty chooses you, but because you chose poverty. Poverty is a choice, so with riches. Your choice determines the consequences. Nobody has ever, and can ever escape the consequences of his choices. You must learn the full meaning of it. The good life of the rich is the full meaning of their choice. The suffering of the poor is the full meaning of their choice.Your financial problem is the full meaning of your choice.

Nature has made everything we need to succeed free of charge. That is why we don’t pay for the ability to think, dream, imagine, desire and acquire the state of mind that raises men from anonymity to legendary heights, rag- to-riches, grass to grace. The world does not owe you anything. In fact, everything needed for you to live beautifully and accomplish success in every area of your life is at your doorstep. That is why they say, “The best things in life are free.”

That is why a towering activist and India founder father, Mahatma Gandhi, said,“Champions are made from something they have deep inside of them.”One of the richest men of all time John D. Rockefeller, stated, “I believe the power to make money is a gift from God…to be developed and used to the best of our ability for the good of mankind. Having been endowed with the gift I possess, I believe it is my duty to make money.

Why do you complain that you lack money, when you are in possession of special talents, physical abilities, mental powers and above all an indomitable spirit? Do you think it is for nothing to be so endowed? One of the reasons you are not rich is that you don’t understand your problem? You can see that your case is a bit different. I want you to understand your problem! Your problem is not that you don’t have money, but that you have not picture it with the eyes of your mind and use your brainpower to make it visible in your bank account. To think you are poor is the greatest ignorance in the world.

After one of my seminars, a Young man of about twenty-five or there about walked up to me and said, “Sir, if really am in possession of all the mental powers and special abilities you claim I possess why am I still poor.” Without looking at him I replied, “Because you decide to be poor,” and walked away. The devil has little or nothing to do with your economic turmoil. Your decision is what stands between you and affluence.

That is why the 40th president of the United States, Ronald Reagan said, “There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.” Do you want to know the 5 decisions that stop you from getting rich? If yes, then find out below.

1. Ignoring your talent

Bear in mind that not putting your talent to practical use is one decision responsible for your economic recession. Yes, if you have a sonorous voice, but you are teaching you have reached a decision and your decision is to die a pauper. If you are fascinated with mechanical things but you are pursuing a sing career, you have reached a decision and your decision is to go through life as a failure. According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, "What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear a word that you say." Action speaks louder than word.

That thing you find yourself doing when no one is there to applaud you is your path to wealth. No matter the challenges, never stop doing it. Keep on doing it and before long, you will find yourself at the top.

2. Living with unhealthy habits

If you enjoy sleeping and yawing into the morning or hate being alone you have reached a decision and your decision is to die coinless. Oh, yes! You have decided to live the rest of your life a pauper, because an individual who wants to impact the world and achieve financial independence, wakes at the middle of the night to draft out plans and design strategies. He is rarely seen in the crowd because he is always alone thinking of how to put his plans into action.

3. Not taking out time to read

If you rather die than sit to read a book, you have reached a decision and your decision is to go through life as a failure. How do you expect to know the state of mind of great minds in order to stand upon the shoulders, when you hardly open a book? One of the greatest scientists who has ever lived on this planet, Isaac Newton once said, “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” According to the first black female self-made billionaire in the world, Oprah Winfrey, “Books were my pass to personal freedom! I learned to read at age 3, and soon discovered there was a whole new world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi.”

Each time you read a book, you learn something new. If you don’t read, you cannot separate facts from fiction. Remember, knowledge is power. Every secret you need to effect a change in your finances and every area of your life is on paper. All you have to do is uncover them. How do you intend to do this when you don’t read at least one book a month. People who are “Hungry” to do more and have more and who are determined to excel in everything they lay their hands, read at least one book a month.

Research finds that 85 percent of rich people read two or more education, career related or self-improvement books per month and it works greatly for them. I specially recommend this self-development book [The Requirements For Success] for you. Trust me, you can use this life-transforming book to build a mind of success.

4. Unable to control yourself

Self-control is vital to human progress. If you don’t learn to control yourself, you have decided to go through life as a failure. Saying one thing and doing another is anathema to success. Success is no childs play at least you know this. Successful people stand by a resolve. There are things success requires to manifest; one of which is time. The ability for you to say to your friends, “Sorry guys, I can’t follow you to that party right now, I gat to prepare for so and so,” is what spell success.It takes self-control to do that.

This is one of the reasons; you must invest in personal-development. Click here to get this personal-development book [The Requirements For Success] to build a mind of success.

5. Raising shoulders

You have made it abundantly clear you want to die a pauper, if you are good at raising shoulders and crossing legs. How do you expect to get something from me when you already made it clear with your action, you have it in abundance. Or don’t you know each time you raise your shoulders and cross your legs what you are saying is, “Look, I am a big guy! I have it all. In fact, come and work in my company.”

This is the major reason a proud person always misses opportunity and hardly receives. When you are proud, People expect to get from you all the time because they believe you have a bank at the back of your compound. If I am Bill Gates for example, and you raise your shoulders and cross your legs while talking with me, instead of thinking of what I will give to you, I will think of what I can get from you. Remember, it was pride that changed angels to devils.

Not until you learn to put down your feet and shoulders, you have reached a decision and your decision is to go through life as a failure. As meek as Humility, it can open any door. Saint Augustus has this advice for you, “Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds! Lay first the foundation of humility”.

Do you know that when you are not exercising all that nature gifted you, you have reached a decision and your decision is to be poor? In sum, do you know that not changing old habits means that you have reached a decision and your decision is to be poor? If you have not start to train your mind, you have reached a decision and your decision is to remain financially handicapped all your life.

No matter how hardworking you are, you have reached a decision and your decision is to die a pauper when you don’t apply your thinking machine [brainpower]and have not developed your mind. No god, demon or angel can make you rich when you don’t have the right spirit and do things that make people rich. Dear reader, there is no god anywhere that favors an ignorant person.
