God expects to see His creation successful but we have turned ourselves down not agreeing on what God says about us or the plans He has for us. Remember that in His word He says that He is not a son of man that He should lie or repent and He says that He has good plans on us to prospers us and not of evil.
God sees us as successful people but we see ourselves as failures and not people of substance. Friends we need to reboot, reformat our minds and start to download new things that are valuable to us and the generations to come.
Now the reasons why you are not as successful as you should be is as follows;
I don't think there is an easy way to put this. I have to assume that you are lazy. Every single successful person works their butts off to get where they are. It is ok to be lazy. Just admit it. But don't whine about not being rich and successful, ok?
Always remember that an idle mind is a devils workshop so please don't give the devil your mind to be his workshop to turn you into nothing then you curse God.
Only a few people in the world are part of the lucky sperm club.You and me? we gonna work to get what we want. Please friends quit thinking you are owed something. You are not. Get to work.
You are afraid, plain and simple. Afraid of looking silly. Afraid of what your friends and family will say. Afraid of Everything. Look, you are either going to stop being afraid, or you are not.
Remember that nobody can convince you to stop, imagine though.... what awaits you when stop with the fear excuses?
You may not realize it, but the people you associate with might be negative[orifices].
They could be soul-sucking beings who don't want anyone to be successful. Get rid of them, now surround yourself with successful people. People you want to be like.
You can not walk with failures then dream to be a successful person or a leader.
5. STOP THINKING
Friends, how much do you want to bet you have paralysis by analysis? You think way too much about what you could or should do. Doers gets what they want, and everyone else gets what they get. Stop analyzing and start doing.
Remember also what the Bible says; Be you doers of the word but not only listeners. So start doing something and not just something but what brings a change and transformation in life.
6. NO GOALS
You plan nothing. Yet you believe that someway, somehow, everything you always wanted will just magically happen. So you "play it by ear" and wait. You need goals to shoot for, otherwise, you are just treading water.
Please have and determine to have goals and run with them.
There's no "they" There is no secret group of people that controls your success or failure. You have made that up to make you feel better about yourself. The truth is you, and you alone, control your success in life/businesses/everything. It is easy to blame "them" though, isn't it weak?
8. NO "X" FACTOR
You can't do it because you are not pretty enough, or don't have a strong personality?
You don't have the "X" factor? Wow, what an unbelievably lame excuse. The truth is even jerks, idiots and boring people can be just as successful as anyone else. Your problem is you don't believe it yet.
9. WASTE TIME
You are a classic time-waster. You spend hours and hours everyday working on not-working. You do things that aren't productive. How are you ever going to get anything done, or reach any goal if you keep wasting time? You are not. So you might as well give up now if you are going to keep this path.
10. SOCIAL MEDIA
You spend too much time in social media land. You waste probably about 50% of your productive hours of the day doing this. The sad part is, you know it, but you can't stop. So you can't get anything done that matters.
11. THINK SMALL
You and your thinking is too small. You are constantly looking only a day or a week ahead instead of years ahead. Because of this, you never get anywhere, and you never lead; you always follow.
Stop following and start leading in Jesus Name!!
12. DON'T WANT IT
You don't really want to be successful, sure, you like to dream about it like everyone else. But in your heart are afraid of what might happen if you really get it. That is B.S. fear your brain is feeding you. Success is change, and it feels really, really good, tell your brain to shut the [foolishness]up.
13. DON'T BELIEVE
You never believed that it is possible. Society taught you that only a few "exceptional" people get what they want. Everyone else should just settle. If you really want to believe that, go ahead. The rest of us will be at the front of the line because we believe.
Always keeping in mind that leaders lead from front not behind. Therefore friends trust in the lord with all your understanding and don't lean on your own understanding. We are a success in life not a failure in life. God bless you and illuminate your mind with His word of truth and victory.
