Why You May Be Your Own Worst Enemy When It Comes to Success

by Susie J. Briscoe

Have you ever considered that you may be sabotaging your own success? Whether it’s making a success of your own business, losing weight, or getting a college degree, you may be blind to the fact that you’re your own worst enemy.

There are many ways we sabotage personal progress. For example, if we need or want to lose weight, and load up the refrigerator with junk food like ice cream and pizza, we’re setting ourselves up for failure.

One way you may be sabotaging your business success is procrastination. Putting things off until the last minute can cause you to do the job in a shabby way so that it’s not as good as you could have made it had you put more time into it.

Saying yes too much or allowing interruptions when you should be working can also sabotage your success. In business, you have to develop boundaries that make it more possible for you to do your job and gain ultimate success.

Making decisions without the proper amount of research and thought can also cause failure. Learning how to make effective decisions involves evaluating your options and correctly assessing how you’re going to benefit or take a risk with each endeavor.

Are you a good communicator? Communicating with others effectively and respectfully can help to build solid business relationships which can help you go far. You may want to ask someone close to you about the effectiveness of your communication style and change things as needed.

You need others to help you succeed. No man is an island, and if you think that just because you’re on the Internet you’re going to succeed without others, think again. Affiliates, followers on your list, and others will help you with your quest to success. Community is a crucial part of success.

Take time for yourself. If you’re going to be the boss, you should keep yourself in good health by taking time to exercise, eat the proper diet, and get the mental clarity you need to make decisions for your business that are going to last a lifetime.
