5 Common Success Myths

Nearly everyone has the ability to achieve success. However, many of us are hindered by mental blocks or fears. Here are the 5 most common success myths that define what success should be and that may be restricting us from achieving goals and living our dream.

Myth 1: Being Wealthy, Happy & Slim Is the Ultimate Goal These are fantasies and wishes common to everyone. We need to be specific and clear about our goals. If it is not in writing, it is merely a dream or a wish, a vague objective with no energy behind it. Myth 2: Must Have an Advanced Education With the direction of our economy and education system, the rising cost of an education has made many individuals wonder whether it’s worth to pay a big lump sum of dollars for an education. Is it a MUST step to success? If you want to be something along the lines of a Physician, Law Enforcement Officer, or an Attorney that requires it in the requirements - yes, of course.

Starting your own business and working for yourself, no. Some might be unsure on what they want to do for their career. Therefore, the best thing you could do is to determine what is best for you and your future goals and then pursue that no matter what the journey brings for you.

Myth 3: More Money is Needed “If only I had more money, then I would be happy” or “Money is the root of all evil.” The reality is “People” have more essential value than money. The more value and service you provide for others, the more currency will flow into your life.

To be on the level here, money is NOT the root of all evil, the LOVE OF MONEY is. Too many people love to say 'money is and it is stopping their progress psychologically from financial progression based on the inaccuracy of their belief.

Myth 4: Expect Success And It Will Come You have to want to make it happen, it will not just come and knock on your front door or fall out from your ceiling in your room. You also have to work your butt off for it. It won't land in your lap and it will not be gifted to you. You must have to be willing to go the extra lengths that the others are not willing to go. Many people fail because they work hard on something for 3, 9, 12, 18, or 24 months----and then give up because "it's just taking way too long for it to happen." There are no "get rich quick" answers except putting in the time and effort.

You must keep working at it, consistency and action are key - lots and lots of consistent action, action, action! Every single day you must do something toward it, if even for 10 minutes a day when you feel exhausted of it and burnt out... as long as you are doing something to create and move closer in the direction toward it. There are some things that you very well may have to give up in order to achieve great success - such as a busy social life and if single right now - this includes dating and a romantic relationship - just for now. And other things.

Myth 5: Success Is “Having It All” Lastly, the 5th is believing success is having it all — the six-figures, CEO job, family, house, etc. Success is of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We require a combination of all of these in order to feel the very best about ourselves and life.
