You may be wondering why some people are successful but are still poor despite the fact that everybody operates in the same economy. Research reveals that poverty and wealth did exist side by side even in older civilizations as it is today. Some people may have some advantages over other, but it is a fact that most people who become successful, had several odds against them like the rest but were able to weather the storm to emerge successfully. Some habits may be responsible for your guaranteed poverty regardless of your country.
It is the whereby you are unable to choose between available opportunities. For instance, you can be talented in music and sports, but you find it difficult to choose what to pursue. People with this type of dilemma can choose to pursue both opportunities simultaneously and end up being average people. To be successful, choose to do a thing at a time as it is better to master one thing than be a jack of all trades.
Procrastination is normally said to be the thief of time. To be successful, make use of opportunities as soon as you see them because you may never know when you may get such an opportunity again if you fail to advantage of an opportunity. Endeavor also to set expectations that are realistic and remember that success does not come quick but rather takes time.
Failure to leave your comfort zone
A comfort zone is a zone where you do something which allows you to eke out a living. It gets its name for the fact that it is usually less demanding. Most times, you find people willing to staying in a job that pays poorly for a long time and retires poor. This is due to the lack of will to leave their comfort zones.
Waiting for the perfect time
To wait for the perfect time before pursuing something is to wait endlessly since the perfect time sometimes may never come. Experience shows that all successful people face disadvantages. The right time did not in their case, but they did face challenges with determination. Waiting to learn everything about a business opportunity before pursuing it is simply planning to fail. Successful people usually choose to learn on the job. They fail but regard this as an opportunity for better learning.
Failure to acquire new ideas
Successful people always make it their duty to seek new idea. They associate with books rather than entertainment. Continuously, they also seek self-development through the books. You are sure to find a study library in their homes if you visit. If you crave for entertainment instead of knowledge, then you may be condemned to poverty.
These are some of the habits that you need to avoid to become more successful in life.
