Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 3.10.04 PM We live in a land of opportunity. If you want, and work for it, your can have it, success that is. Simple as this may sound many people do things that end up putting a brick wall right in the path of their road to success. I will share with you some of those things that could possibly end up blocking your road to success.


Tomorrow you will do what you need to be successful. But that tomorrow turns to into a week, a month, years… you get the picture.   Successful make a plan, a checklist or whatever it takes to do what needs to be done.   Successful people simply do the things that the unsuccessful won’t do. So get off your butt and do what you have to do to gain success today —– not someday.


Are you considered to be a what they call a “Debbie Downer” You what a Debbie Downer is someone who frequently adds bad news and negative feelings, thus bringing down the mood of everyone around them. If you constantly tell yourself you won’t be successful, then 9 times out of 10 you won’t be.   If you aren’t excited and motivated enough to go after your goals so that you can have success.   Then those negative thoughts will continue to fester in your mind like a sore and keep you constantly feeling like a “Debbie Downer”. Every time you find yourself acting like a “Debbie Downer” think about positive thoughts. Sooner or later your mind when be more conditioned to remove the negativity and get you positively back on the road to attacking and achieving your goals.


First and foremost, can’t should not even be apart of your vocabulary if you want success.   Do you realize the most successful people in the world have failed more times than they want to really admit. Look at Colonel Saunders he was over 80 when he found success with Kentucky Fried Chicken and only after he was turned down a million times (that’s what it probably seemed like to him).   After failing and failing again you have to learn how to pick yourself up and get back on that road and get on moving if you want your chance to be successful.


You are the only one of the planet that goes through trials and tribulations. Anything that can happen always happens to you. Even though you feel this way, you are absolutely wrong.   No one has a perfect life without trials and tribulations.   What you are doing is living a defeated life.   I am sure you have some happiness in your life. You have to go through a big rainstorm to see a rainbow.   Well this is how success is you have to take your bumps and bruises so that in the even you can weather the storm and get the success you work on so long and hard to get.


Your best friend has success. Everyone around you has success but you. Stop thinking that you can’t be just or even more successful than the next person. When you think this way you limit your possibility of success.   Concentrate of celebrating their success and then learning from it. Once you are put back on the right path to believing you too can be successful you will start to feel it and make it more a possibility of becoming true.

You need to look at yourself and ask yourself the question, “do I really want to be successful”. If the answer to that question is yes, then you need to make sure you are not doing things that have put a brick wall in your path.   Are you the one holding yourself back from success?   You alone hold the key to your happiness and success. You alone have the power to change things.   Stop creating brick walls and create bulldozers instead and you must just see how successful you really can be. Good luck.
