3 Reasons Why You Are Not As Successful As You Want to Be

You are a hard worker, are passionate and very ambitious, but you are still not as successful as you want to be. We always say that the earlier mentioned ingredients are the key to success, and if it still doesn’t work out, we tend to identify the lack of ‘luck’ as the reason why we aren’t successful.


But could there be other reasons why we aren’t feeling very successful despite the fact that we worked really hard, are still very passionate and ambitious?

So what is standing in the way of all the ‘key’ ingredients that we put in and really being successful? Like with most things, it is all about attitude as well.

Here are the 3 reasons why you are not as successful as you want to be:

#1 – You haven’t defined success

What does success mean to you and have you defined that for yourself (without looking at others!)? You can work as hard as you possibly can, but if you don’t know what you are working towards, or in other words what your destination is, it is pointless.

In order to measure how successful you are, you need to know what you are trying to achieve and work towards it.

#2 – You put yourself in the wrong context

We all have things that we are very good at, and then we, unfortunately, have things we aren’t so good at. If you want to work at your full potential, it is crucial that you put yourself in a position where your weaknesses are minimized and your strengths can shine.

#3 – You are too much focused on pleasing others in stead of yourself

The most difficult one for most people: focussing on pleasing other! Of course, you have to be kind to others, but that doesn’t mean success has to do with pleasing others whenever and wherever. Truly successful people are kind, but also set their own agenda and aren’t afraid to say ‘no’ when they really have to.
