What is holding me back from achieving what I want to do? I’m not talking about excuses but legitimate reasons. If I am honest with myself I won’t need excuses anyway. Jim Kuukral has organized 13 reasons why we are not successful. I’ve turned it into a countdown. I won’t go into detail which ones apply to me. All I can say is that more than a few are very damning and I don’t like it. So, being forced to realize these reasons are accurate, I cannot ignore them and will work toward correcting them.
In the movie, The Empire Strikes Back, a young apprentice seeks the wisdom of a master. When given a task seemed impossible, Luke comments:
Luke: I’ll try.
Yoda: No try. Do or do not. There is no try.
Luke: I don’t believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.
The reasons why we are not successful:
13. Don’t believe
12. Don’t want it
11. Think small
10. Social B.S.
9. Waste time
8. “X” factor. I need “X”or I don’t have “X”.
6. No goals
5. Stop thinking
