Updated: Apr 30

How do some people keep winning and you feel you are stuck? Nearly everyone wants to have a beach body, but not all want to put the effort into their diet and working out. You see everyone around you being promoted and you are still in the same position. Being successful isn’t automatic, there is no golden ticket to success. It requires concentrated effort, mindset and action.

Many of us have a series of excuses that we can pull out of a hat at a moment’s notice. There’s always one that seems to fit the bill perfectly. This is done largely to protect ourselves and to justify our current circumstances.

Are any of these excuses holding you back from success?

1. “I don’t know how.” This common excuse gives you permission to not even try. However, this excuse simply doesn’t hold water. At no time in the history of mankind has there been so much information available. Want to start a charity? There are hundreds of books on the subject. Need to lose 10 Kgs? There are thousands of resources available. want a promotion? Learn how to connect with those around you, improving your EQ can get you that promotion.

One of the best ways to figure out how to do something is to find a qualified mentor.

Another effective option is to simply try and then adjust your approach based on your results.
