5 reasons why most people don’t make it

1) Focus on one thing

People who are successful aim for one thing. If you spend three hours in the gym, three hours writing and three hours public speaking then you’ll be well on your way to be a jack of all trades.

You just spent 9 hours working hard on three different things and working on all three skills might make you good but it’ll never make you great. However if you focus on that one thing and invest all of your time on that one thing, you’ll eventually become great.

It’s important to have many skills but it’s even more important to specialize in that one thing. Make sure your to-do list is short and make sure it helps you achieve that one thing.

2) Lack of discipline and consistency

Everyone wants to be successful but not everyone wants to work for it. Working towards your goals isn’t always fun.

A successful life requires discipline. Discipline is what gets you out of that warm cozy bed, discipline is what keeps you moving when you don’t feel like it, discipline is what keeps you consistent and discipline is what stops you from procrastinating.

3) Lack of consistency

What you do today determines your future. This is why you need to stop procrastinating and this why you need to show up every single day whether you like it or not. In order to stay consistent, work on your habits.

Work on one habit every month and make sure that you do it daily. It’ll eventually become a habit and habits help you do what you need to do with lesser effort.

4) Give up easily without hustling

Life doesn’t always go as planned and failure isn’t always avoidable. We’ve all heard the saying that “failure is the best teacher” and “we learn from our mistakes” but it’s extremely painful when you actually fail.

Failure is defined as getting back up one more time but it’s easier said than done. But that’s just how life is and you can either stay down and live a miserable life or you could get back up and maybe get the good life.

Getting back up doesn’t guarantee success but staying down does guarantees failure. Take a break if you fail. Take a little time off to recollect but show up once again. Keep hustling and don’t stop.

5) No faith in a higher power

You see more and more atheists every day. People claim that God doesn’t exist and we were just created because of an explosion.

I believe in the big bang theory but I also believe that someone caused it. Humans are weak and we need a higher power to help us when we don’t know what to do. I believe, if a person believes in divine power, God watching over them, then they can get divine inspiration.

Google the most popular humans to ever exist and you’ll find holy people such as Moses, Abraham, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Jesus and David.

These men are some of the most popular, legendary and successful people of all time and it’s all because they believed in a higher power.

I’ve always believed in a higher power. You can call it God, you can call it Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Allah, I don’t care. I really believe we are all a part of God. — Olivia Hussey
