15 Reasons You Are Not as Successful as You Should Be
Some certain situations or challenges are completely out of control, but there's also the possibility that you're holding yourself back because of one of the following 15 reasons.
1. You're Lazy

This is the first and the most common reason that someone is not successful.

2. You Keep Asking "Why Not Me?"

Stop wasting your time asking why other people are successful and you're not.
3. You Get Stuck in Your Head

As NHL legend Wayne Gretzky once said, "You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take."

4. You're Spending Too Much Time on Social Media

Engaging your customers is important, but you don't need to spend every free moment on social media.
5. You Never Finish What Your Start

"Starting is easy, finishing is hard." Success never happens overnight, and anything worth doing takes time and effort.

6. You Don't Think a Business

Whatever you do, you'll never be successful if you don't see yourself as a business.
7. You Don't Believe in Yourself

If you don't believe in yourself, then are you willing to make any serious attempts?

8. You Feel Entitled

You're not owed anything. If you want something badly, you're going to have to go out there and earn it.
9. You Obsess Over Things That Aren't Important

When you're more concerned about whether or not Migos shouldn't take back his gift as opposed to following up with a lead that has the potential to make you some cash, then you have a problem.
10. You Stay in Your Comfort Zone

Staying in your comfort zone leads to stagnation. You'll never be able to grow and develop if you stay in one place.

11. You Focus Too Much on Money

If you start a business just because you think it will make you a billionaire, you're a clown.
12. You're a Negative Thinker

If you're a negative thinker or just a pessimist, then you're going to put up roadblocks to success - before you even try.

13. You Don't Know Who You Are

Sun Tzu wrote in 'The Art of War,' "Know yourself and you will win all battles."
14. You Think You Can Do Everything On Your Own

Jobs, Gates, and Zuckerberg all had assistance from Wozniak, Allen, and Saverin. No matter your talent, you'll still need to bring in others.

15. You're a Perfectionist

Get things done and improve as you go. Perfection is a myth.
