In order to realize our full potential, sometimes it is not what we do that matters. What may determine our accomplishments and achievements is sometimes the NO’s we say. The things we decide to sideline in our lives. Why should you go on having an anchor in your life? Let it go and experience your full potential.

However, what we ought to realize that success is personal. I have my goals, you have yours. I mean, you and I are not aiming for exactly the same things, right? The measures, as a result, are distinct. It is completely up to you to know what success is to you and the efforts to achieve this. However, there are some universal things you should avoid to be successful.

You should realize that success is much of we are than what we have. If we say there are no hindrances to our success we deceive ourselves. For those of you who truly are after success, you get to fear actions that may block your success.

Here are some of these things you should not do;

Things You Ought To Give Up For Success

  1. Stop focusing on small opportunities

If you are an investor, you are most probably accustomed to risk taking. The higher your risk the greater your returns. Is that not right? In your search for success, things are not different. Stop focusing only on opportunities that only grow you by a small extent. Think big. Try to generate something greater out of every small opportunity.



  1. Stop creating excuses for your mistakes

Excuses are a great enemy when it comes to achieving success. You should immediately stop that habit you have of putting the blame on other people whenever you do not get what you wanted. You should realize that the mistakes you experience are as a result of your wrong choices and take responsibility.

Your poor choices should not in any way be justified.

  1. You should not be rigid on your plans

The society around us is developing each and every day. Today is way different than yesterday. Your mind should be open to new ideas. Develop your past plans for even greater success.

  1. Do not focus on perfections

No matter how much you put into it, nothing can be perfect. Do not fear to do something just because you are not perfect at it. Go do it. You might produce excellent results which do not necessarily need to be perfect.

  1. Avoiding doing many things at the same time

Commitment should be important in all our engagements. Let us say you were pursuing a business ideal and someone comes to you with yet another idea. Got back on your previous ideal and push it to the very end. Turn a blind eye on the latter idea until you accomplish the first. Dedicate all your resources to it.

  1. Give up on saying yes just to please people.

Before you make any decision, you should examine it to see if it affects your plans in any way. Do not just say yes because this is your treasured friend putting the idea across. Say no. Am sure he or she will understand success in undertakings comes first.

  1. Give up copying other people

In this life, each is every person is unique in his or her own way. Everyone is facing a different test and the solutions or answers are therefore different. Do you own thing without checking on what your neighbors are doing and you will be successful.

  1. Give up unhealthy lifestyle

This is the foundation of anything you want in life. What is the point of having all you wanted if you are not healthy? Take care of your health. Keep fit by engaging in regular exercises and watching your diet.

  1. Give up on trying to control thing you have no control over

This goes hand in hand with making excuses for your failures. If you know you have no control over a certain thing, why should you lead your business or plans to such a point that these things affect it? Avoid these things as early as possible. Take a path in which you can handle at least everything you come across.

  1. Give up on negative people

To large extent, we are a totally average of the people we associate with. Cut off ties with people who are not in line with what you would want to become. I see no reason for you associating with that pessimist you keep on telling you, ‘you cannot’.

On the other side, you can connect with positive people and influencers.
