The Number One Reason You Are Not Getting Ahead

getting ahead in life for BIGG SuccessBIGG success is life on your own terms. The number one reason people don’t get ahead can be stated in just one term:

Choices.

Choose something

Many people are frozen by fear. So they do nothing. They don’t see this as a choice, but it is.

It’s a choice to remain average and ordinary. It’s a choice for the status quo. It’s a choice to remain stuck.

If you want to get ahead, do what the winners do: Choose to do something – even if it’s wrong!

When you try something, you learn. You now have a competitive advantage over the person who chose to do nothing.

Choose to live now

Okay, so you got out of your comfort zone. You tried something. Things didn’t turn out the way you hoped they would.

It’s at this point that many people make another harmful choice. They choose to demean themselves for the choice that didn’t work out.

For some people, there’s a ritual revolving around experiences like this. They feel bad. They feel like they failed. They start to beat themselves up – and not just for this one choice, but for almost every choice they ever made.

It’s a death spiral. It kills the spirit.

Winners know that outcomes won’t always equal expectations. So they choose to not worry about coming up short. They choose to tweak what they’re doing or to try something else.

They choose to live now, rather than in the past. They choose to only invest additional energy on things they can control, not things they can’t.

They choose to persevere, even if that means starting from scratch. And ultimately, it leads to BIGG success!

    I realized a couple of months ago that I had a choice. I could continue to procrastinate and give up on my dreams, or I could get off my but and get out there and start achieving. Fortunately, I’ve chosen the latter, and I’m feeling better about the choice all the time. I still have obstacles coming my way, but I’m choosing to face them rather than hide from the.

    Thanks for sharing!
