Eight Things That Will Stop You From Succeeding.

1.  Procrastination

So when is the right time for you to start out on your business ideas? It is now, today and not tomorrow. A lot of us put off acting on our ideas over and over, losing valuable time that could have been used to develop and establish the business. Putting things off indefinitely known as procrastination is a serious issue with many of us. All of us do it at one point or the other in our lives. But when it get's in the way of our progress or success, it becomes a real issue. It starts from things like putting off taking out the trash, postponing paying the bills, not doing their assignment on time and so on. It is a habit that is gradually developed and not one that you're born with. It is a manifestation of lack of self-control and regulation, a real obstacle to success

2. Discouragement

Several factors can bring on discouragement. People can discourage you. The system can discourage you from actually getting started. You've gone over your plans but when you share it with others, they shred it and give you dozens of reasons why it will not work (and you listen to them).

3. Financial Resources

Money is very important in any venture and a lack or insufficient amount of it can cause a setback. However any venture or undertaking that is viable can be financed by other means apart from personal. Loans can be obtained from friends, family or even financial institutions

4. Fear

Fear of the unknown, of failing or perhaps even of succeeding can prevent you from going ahead with your plans. If you look only on the dark side you will never go on to succeed. However, looking on the other side, working hard to succeed opens you up into a new world. A more comfortable life is one of such. Or maybe you are afraid of succeeding because you feel you will not be able to handle the responsibilities that come with it.You will learn.

5. Time

Creating time for what is of value and not wasting it on irrelevant and unprofitable actions will definitely aid in your success. Dedicate time to your goals and prioritize your activities. Do not try to please anyone just so they don't get offended. Learn to decline offers if they take your time unnecessarily and give you no value.

6. Distractions

Our present world presents before us a lot of distractions. Television, video games, internet , clubbing and so much more. Not that they are not good as such, but it should not be all we do. Staying focused is essential.

7. Lack of focus

Not being able to stay on track of what you want to do can certainly affect your level of success. Avoid things that take you off the path of tasks and goals that you need to go on to succeed. 

8. Persistence

Not giving up on your goals and plans will go a long way in ensuring your success. Work on them constantly. See every set back as an opportunity to make it work in a different way and improve on it. Don't get easily discouraged. Keep at it.

To succeed takes a lot of time and effort, but the gains are surely worth the effort.
