Being unsuccessful is what we don’t want to be. But when it comes to attaining success, we fail to realize that we become unsuccessful not because of some external factor but because of the habits we carry with us. The baggage of the habits which unknowingly remain part of our life not only plays the devil in our life but even makes us susceptible to failure.
Let’s view things in a different perspective and instead of looking at the habit of successful people let’s look at the habit of unsuccessful people.
The following are the 7 habits of unsuccessful people:
1. Unsuccessful people Think, Say, & Do Negative Things.
Yes. They see problems in EVERY opportunity. They complain that the sun is too hot. They cursed the rain for ruining their plans for the day. They blame the wind for ruining their hair. They think that everyone is against them. They see the problems but never the solutions.
Every little bit of difficulty is exaggerated to the point of tragedy. They regard failures as catastrophes. They become discouraged easily instead of learning from their mistakes. They never seem to move forward because they’re always afraid to come out of their comfort zones.
2. They are impulsive.
They move based on instinct or impulse. The people that fall in this category are those who are impulsive in their decision-making and are not emotionally intelligent. They are driven by their impulse as a result of which they suffer failure and lead to long time depression.
Impulsive people are such that they take action without planning and without thinking of the consequences of the same.
Being impulsive is one of the worst habits that gives birth to an unsuccessful person.
3. Poor Listener.
The people who are unsuccessful are also the person who had all along had been poor listeners. A person who wants to be the star of the show always engages in talks that would make them heroes, even to the point of lying.
A good listener on the other hand is not only known for having an empathetic view but is also considered as a person who had attained success. The psychologists had also found out that good listeners are also good human beings and it is also found that the success rate of human beings who are good listeners are higher than those who are poor listeners.
4. They Give Up Easily
Successful people treat failures as stepping stones to success. Incompetent ones call it quits upon recognizing the first signs of failure. At first, they may be excited to start an endeavor. But then they lose interest fairly quickly, especially when they encounter errors.
Then they go & search for a new one. Same story & same results. Incompetent people don’t have the persistence to go on and fulfil their dreams.
5. They Try to Bring Others Down To Their Level
Incompetent people envy other successful individuals. Instead of working hard to be like them, these incompetent ones spread rumors and try every dirty trick to bring them down.
They could’ve asked these successful ones nicely. But no, they’re too proud. They don’t want to ask for advice. Moreover, they’re too negative to accomplish anything.
6. They Waste Their Time
They don’t know what to do next. They may just be contented on eating, getting drunk, watching TV, or worse, staring at the blank wall with no thoughts whatsoever to improve their lives.
It’s perfectly fine to enjoy once in a while. But time should be managed efficiently in order to succeed. There should be a proper balance between work & pleasure.
7. They Take the Easy Way Out
If there are two roads to choose from, incompetent people would choose the wider road with fewer rewards than the narrower road with much better rewards at the end.
They don’t want any suffering or hardship. They want a good life. What these people don’t know is that what you reap is what you sow. Efforts & action will not go unnoticed. If only they would be willing to sacrifice a little, they would be much better off. Successful people made it through trials & error. They never give up. They are willing to do everything necessary to achieve what they aspire for in life.
