Six Success Stealers!

Anyone who ventures out on a journey to achieve any level of lasting success must also be aware of potential pitfalls or

Some are subtle, while some are not so subtle; but any one of these is the ingredients for recipes called “DISASTER” that I am sure none of us want to “feast” upon!

1.) INDIFFERENCE: When you begin to not really care one way or the other if you succeed or when you succeed, by accomplishing your goals, you are not really positioning yourself for a victories outcome. Shockingly, this is more about having an “indifferent attitude” or “indifferent actions”, not words!

2.) INDECISION: When I think of indecision, I think the best comment that I have heard was attributed to a Yankee great who said, “When you come to a fork in the road… TAKE IT!” I have learned that when it comes to decision there are usually a few different outcomes.

Obviously, the best thing that you can do is make the right decision; the second best thing that you can do is make the wrong decision; and the worst thing that you can do is to not make a decision at all and refuse to participate in your outcome!

3.) DOUBT: I think this one is obvious so I won’t really camp out here but I will say this that was also shared with me: “The man who thinks he can accomplish something and the man who doesn’t think he can accomplish something – are both right!”

4.) WORRY: This is along the same lines of doubt, because it is what allows doubt to set in; but for the most part, just remember that you are never responsible for the results, only the activity! The people that will do business with you, will and the one who will not, will not. Your job is to create value, link with like-minded people, and share your passion, the rest doesn’t matter.

5.) TIMIDITY: My grandmother always told me that scared hunters never eat! Whatever it is that you are supposed to go out and do or get – as soon as you make up your mind to do it or get it; Consider it done! Fortune favors the bold!

6.) COMPLAINING: I think that this is usually more about what the individual complaining thinks is owed to them based on an “expectation”; as opposed to an “anticipation” from working very hard and serving others. Change yourself in a situation as opposed to expecting your situation to change.

Just remember this: “Whining is never an EXIT STRATEGY!”

I hope you found value in today’s post and I look forward to receiving your comments and connecting with you.

Talk to you soon!

  1. All great points Tony – I just have to say that of the people I’ve known, indecision has been one of the biggest issue. Playing the “what if” game can go on and on, mean while you’re getting no where … and before long, you end up settling for less. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Wow Tony! Thanks for sharing this. These are really slave drivers especially doubt and worry. Doubt and worry are the most reason why we fail. Why? Because we become what we think about most. We should not worry about not getting something we want, just focus and visualize on the goals we want to achieve.


  3. Indecision and Timidity are the two that get me the most. What helps is knowing I have a great plan, and something of real value to offer to others. Knowing there are those who are seeking, who will really appreciate it, helps a lot.

  4. great points! it is true that those factors are great bars that really hinders our way to success. but sad to say that we are also the one who made all of this. but still, we can fight for it. thanks for the awareness 🙂

  5. Hello Tony,

    Worry and doubt are my two biggest bug-bears. I’m an Engineer by training – so I am conditioned to look for every possible way that something can go wrong (and then hopefully eliminate it).

    It’s actually not a bad approach in Engineering – it’s kinda nice when buildings don’t fall down – but I know that I need to be careful not to carry it into other areas of life and business.

    Your post was a timely reminder for me. Thanks for that!
