Understand why most people fail in life. Some reasons have certainly caused this. Check out what they are and how they can influence.
10 reasons why most people fail in life
1. Closed Minded
One of the main reasons most people fail in life is because they have conditioned their minds in such a way that they have filled their minds with their own impressions and opinions with the help of their past experiences.
Example, closed-minded people always believe that whatever they believe is true, not understanding others’ perspectives.
In this sense, there is no room for self-questioning and self-improvement for closed-minded people. On the other hand, open-minded people feel compelled to see things through others’ eyes.
In order to step out of the failure zone, one has to shift closed-mindedness to open-mindedness to taste the flavor of success.
The one big reason why people get into the failure zone is that they tend to compare themselves with others all the time.
When people compare themselves to either above or below them, they are not only demotivating themselves but also killing their own self-esteem.
Thus, always, compare yourself to who you were yesterday.
3. Negative Thinking
Basically, our brains are designed for survival instinct. Therefore, it always tries to protect us from external threats and ought to keep us safe and comfortable.
For that reason, we tend to think more in negative than positive but we also gifted with an amazing tool called our “consciousness” from which we can fill our internal world with conscious positive thoughts but it can happen with intense practice.
All we need to find out the positive aspects of ourselves and consciously thinking of those positive sides of us all the time without giving any scope for our negativity.
One of the main reasons most people fail in life is because we never try to learn new things and we stuck with the same old patterns that run like a computer program, the same Thoughts, actions, behavior, and emotions.
When there is no room for our personal development then we struck with the same old-personality and our personality creates our personal reality.
Recent scientific studies show that if we learn one bit of new information, then we can actually upscale 1300 to 2600 new synapses connections in our brain.
To sustain those connections, we should revisit or relearn that information again, and again over a period of time.
Otherwise, we disconnect from it within a matter of hours.
5. Unhealthy Habits
Do you know the reason why most people fail in their lives because they adapted unhealthy habits?
When success lies in our habits, what we are creating with our habits, the same life as in the past. If we want to change our lives, we need to change our habits, in order to lead our lives happily and successfully.
Every successful person and failure person has the same goals but what made them different is the Process, Time, And Perseverance.
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret to your success is found in your daily routine.” — John C.Maxwell
6. Lack of Self-Discipline
Our minds are often distracted by the multiple external triggers that can change the direction of our goals within no time.
As a result, we get into the procrastination zone that later turns up into a lack of motivation, dedication, and perseverance.
Discipline is when we commit working on our goals every single day without procrastination. Discipline is not a punishment.
It is a conscious mind training your unconscious mind.
7. Fear of failure
‘Fear’ is the primary cause for many people to face the failures in their lives before they actually take their first step to achieve their dreams because they anticipate the fear of failure that sabotages them from doing what they really dream for.
Fear of failure is also known as “atychiphobia”. It is a phobia that doesn’t allow us to do things to achieve our goals.
It also keeps us in a comfort zone that feels safe and secure, not letting us step out of our comfort zone.
We all have our own dreams but only some of us could achieve their dreams because they tend to take a brave step and cross that tiny line that separates them from the failure category.
8. Find Excuses
Our mind refers to the monkey mind which unsettles, restless, confused, and keeps on wanders all the time.
On top of that, our unstable monkey mind always gets distracted with endless activities and always comes up with futile excuses whenever we made up our minds to work on our goals.
Once we accept that monkey’s commands or excuses, then we unconsciously fall into the old-patterns and end up being a procrastinator that put us into the failure category.
One thing we should understand before its too late that failure people find out excuses and successful people find out possibilities.
9. Dwelling in the past
How do we create our future when we are dwelling with our past memories that are playing like a tape recorder?
When we are engaging in revisiting or rethinking some past events (linked to negative or positive emotions), it means we are reliving that moment over and over again.
This process triggers the same emotional changes in the brain that produce the chemical cortisol, a stress hormone that is highly addictive to the brain.
When we keep thinking about the past, in that sense, we are creating the same future based on past experiences.
Sooner or later, our habitual thinking about the past becomes part of our identity.
10. Give up easily
“Don’t give up” this phrase becomes the modern era mantra that many successful leaders and coaches often quoted in their speeches.
It’s easy to give up on our goals when things aren’t going on our way but it’s too hard to stick on our dreams even when everything seems to be impossible.
That’s when we can get to know about our attitude.
According to Shiv Khera, author of You Can Win. He says that people usually encounter failures in their lives, because of the lack of persistence, conviction, self-esteem, discipline, and preparation.
