Any of these personality traits can keep you from the success you deserve. But the good news is this: You can take the lead in your life and work through any character trait that isn’t serving you.
Our tendencies can govern our destiny, or they can tell us what we need to work on It’s up to you.
Do any of these resonate with you?
The procrastinator; is always waiting for the right moment, or the right circumstance, to act. Procrastination is the worst kind of self-fulfilling prophecy. It’s demotivating and leads to apathy.
The privileged; feel entitled to success, but without passion, perseverance, and hard work, the only thing that’s likely to be obtained is disappointment.
The pessimist; is always negative. Pessimism leads to fatalism and self-sabotaging despair.
The distracted; is always preoccupied with SOS–shiny object syndrome. Too much time spent on social media, email and the rabbit holes of the Web instead of setting goals and working toward them brings nothing but lost time.
The loafer; passively assumes that things will just work out by themselves, instead of tackling problems and working toward solutions.
The dreamer; has lots of big ideas. But dreams needs direction and a system of execution for success.
The nonbeliever; isn’t built for faith, and can never see the possibility of success–another self-fulfilling prophecy.
The frightened; lacks the courage to jump in, to feel the fear and do it anyway. Fear of doing is another way of fearing success.
The analytical thinker; becomes too paralyzed with overthinking and can miss opportunities, ideas will play out in his or her mind, but they can have difficulty moving further.
The lazy; lack any motivation. With no-drive or ambition, there’s not even anything to work for.
The visionless; doesn’t have a clue what he wants to achieve; he just keeps trying things and hopes something will work. It makes for a hard road to success.
The small-minded; never look beyond what they have, no need for improvement or growth.
The non-producer; is always busy but never really productive. There’s a lot of action, but nothing happens.
