Success is what all of us think about. All our planning revolves around how to be successful in our personal and professional life and do everything in our power to achieve it. Most people try to make it viable by hook or by crook and don’t think of ethical ways to achieve it. That’s why all of fear failure like seeing a ghost and hardly talk about it. So what is fear and why there is a need to discuss it and know how and why it is critical to the ultimate success.
Companies, either big or small, use all types of strategies like using social media marketing, print advertising or going from door to door to send their message across. Still they fail. What’s the reason behind it? Ever think why we have so much negativity in our minds when we think of failure. We need to have a clear vision concerning this and there are concrete reasons why we fail and how to avoid it. Let me offer you top 5 reasons why we fail and answer to some of the questions mentioned above.
- A Fixed Mindset
All of us think in a single direction, that is, towards making a project successful. While we take into account plan B or plan C if original plan fails, we don’t want to talk about it. We need to change our mindset so that we can see things in the larger perspective. A growth mindset instead of a fixed one can offer us lots of advantages to grow our minds and become better at something. A growth mindset doesn’t slow our progress, as widely believed, but take us into the right direction to achieve success while taking failure into account too.
- Stagnant Development
Lack of skill set is one of the basic problems why we don’t succeed in life. And the reason why we refuse to face the reality that we are about to fail or will face this situation in the near future. Our development stalls and we find ourselves at a standstill. The remedy is simple; try to learn new skills and educate yourself as in this rapidly changing environment only those are left behind and fail who don’t prepare for the future.
- No Clear Purpose
Now this is one aspect that is crystal clear. If you have no primary purpose to strive for in the future, you will definitely end up facing failure. After all, after starting from point A 1 year ago, you will remain at point A as you don’t have any destination or goal in mind. Failure is imminent. So instead of fearing it, try to do something about it and make every effort to succeed instead of living your life in the closet and fear failure.
- Negative Thinking
If you are a pessimist person or think too often about the negative aspects then it will be impossible for you to succeed in most of the tasks you do. It can be the most destructive aspect for any person as negative thinking is the basis of every failure you can imagine. If you want to succeed, learn the power of positivity and then you will be amazed to see how your life will be transformed in a matter of few months.
- Lack of Motivation
Failure will be the only viable result for you if you are not motivated enough to work on any project. You have to start working towards succeed if you don’t want to fail. It’s as simple as that. Your failure is defined by what you will do today. Be super motivated to complete a job and you will succeed admirably.
