Why Most People Aren’t Successful

Success is a huge motivator to most people. However, most people are not successful in achieving their goals. This article explains why.

People are rarely successful in reaching their goals. Why? As we grow, we get more ambitious in pursuing our goals. The idea of having to give up on our goals has always made us pause and reevaluate our motivation. But for many of us, these challenges are much easier to handle. How many of us say, “If I can just become successful, I can stop worrying about whether I’m doing the right thing?” Well, this list of problems is a quick and easy way to demonstrate why most people don’t really do what they set out to do and achieve success.

The Power of Passion Most people don’t really do that which they set out to do. But what people seem to do is to pursue their goals with an unquenchable thirst for success. One reason why we want success as a goal is that it seems to make us feel good and that makes us feel closer to achieving our goals. If your goal is to save up to buy a house and you have plenty of friends who want to buy you one of their homes as well, or if your goal is to save up as much money as possible to buy a house so your parents will finally let you live in the house, getting successful can become very exciting. However, what most people are not successful at is pursuing what they want for their lives when they really want to go the opposite direction. So why do most people want so much of what they already have? The answer to that comes down to passion—how they feel that they want something. For many people, their passion is money. Many people feel that their passion lies in spending lots and lots of money. As we age, we start to stop being as excited about money. Many people worry what their retirement accounts will be worth someday (not being able to find a full time job and not having much disposable income). They also worry that their children are spending way too much on their education. These are just a few of the reasons why people end up taking a smaller share of the pie. In this way, passion can turn into an unhealthy addiction. One way we can overcome our passion for our money is through the use of the right passion—passion for something else. The key is having a passion for something else first.

How to Achieve More Than You Think You Can

The reason we are not successful at most of the things we set out to do is that we don’t follow through on them. We start with a goal, but we don’t follow through. Why is this happening? This is because we are often too focused on what we will get out of our goal as opposed to how we are going to get there. As we get more goals, we start to add weight to what we want to do. Often what we want to do is simply be successful. However, what we really want to do is be the best at what we are doing. We want to have all the answers. We want to do whatever it takes to make the world a better place. So we set out on a path to get what we want. We set out on this path on our own because our lives are too busy to do so by ourselves. In the case of the people we know, most of us have jobs that really don’t allow us a lot of time to pursue our true passion, so most of us take on more responsibilities and tasks in our careers and at our jobs.
