Eliminate Failure For Good!
Failure Habit #5
This person begrudges the success of others. They long to possess something awarded to or achieved by another.
Belief: "Why does he seem to get all the breaks?" "He must have a horseshoe up his butt because he is so lucky". "Rich people get that way by cheating and lying to others".
Results: In a deal, they count other people’s money before their own. They can’t focus on what they should be doing because they are too distracted to build their own success. They’re focused on what others seem to be doing.
The Fix: Envy is a wasted emotion that requires you to bring others down in order for you to feel good about your lack of success. Acknowledge it, compartmentalize it and tuck it away. Get to work building your own success. Let the success of others inspire you that it is indeed possible to achieve your hearts desires.
Failure Habit #6
These people simply lack the raw intelligence to succeed. There is a low capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, and similar forms of mental activity.
To accomplish anything in life, intelligence is not the most important predictor of success -
...Determination, Perseverance, Common Sense, Attention to detail, and Focus...
Give me someone with those qualities and I assure you that success is inevitable.
And by “Thinking-Challenged,” I am not talking about people who lack certain skills, such as computer skills. If you lack the skills required to attain the success you seek, you simply learn those skills.
There are few people who are simply not smart enough to choose an area where they can ensure success. So it is much more important to identify your degree of wisdom.
Some people really are best qualified to allow others to do the thinking for them or operate better in a position where they are not required to make important decisions that require mental acuity. And there is nothing wrong with that. Raw intelligence is grossly over-rated.
The Fix: It’s only sad if you refuse to face reality -- not everyone was cut out to be a captain of industry. It’s so easy to fall for the siren call of the quick buck.
My suggestion? Realistically, assess your abilities in terms of attaining your level of success. Is it right for you?
One thing for sure, there’s no need to be a brain-iac. But, you should at least possess average intelligence. Be honest with yourself!
