Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t want to be successful?
Except for probably those who don’t know what “successful” means, almost everyone wants to be successful.
Success could mean a number of different things.
Here is how the Cambridge Dictionary defines “successful“:
Achieving the results wanted or hoped for.
Having achieved plenty, become popular, and/or made a lot of money.
From the definition, you can probably work out straightaway the number one reason why you aren’t successful yet.
1. You Have No Purpose in Life
You are not as successful as a result of you reside while not knowing what you would like in life.
The reasons you get up in the morning. What ignites the fire in you.
It’s hard to become successful if you don’t know what life with purpose means to you.
Whether it’s to become a popular YouTuber, change the world, make lots of money or teach the next generation, you can’t be successful without knowing what you want to be successful at.

Many people don’t know what they want.

2. You Have No Goals: Short-Term & Long-Term
You’re not successful as a result of you’ve got no set up of goals.
In the absence of purpose in life, you can’t have goals hence no direction.
Imagine jumping in a taxi but you can’t tell the driver where to take you.
Not only will it baffle the taxi driver but you’ll also feel pretty daft.
That’s what life while not goals within the absence of purpose could feel from time to time.
Because life without goals is like floating in a vast ocean with no sight of the destination to reach: lost.
3. You Let Your Past Failure Win

You are not successful as a result of you refuse to find out from your past. Instead, you give up.
Each trial and error is our learning opportunity.
We get better over time as we learn and build on those experiences.
