Three Enemies to Success

The first enemy to success is the comfort zone. Learn to move out of your comfort zone.

Do something new every day. Get comfortable with the feeling of “incompetence” also known as the Dip when starting something new.

Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved unless you change the status quo in your current work or environment.

The second enemy to success is learned helplessness.

As you move out of your comfort zone and plan to make changes in your life, your brain will throw up a thousand reasons why you will never succeed.

The fear of failure will make you freeze like a deer caught in the headlights of a fast-approaching vehicle. Set big goals and pour your heart into achieving them.

The third enemy of success is the natural tendency to follow the path of least resistance.

The search for easy money and solutions is the biggest reason for failure to attain goals.

Nothing worthwhile can ever be achieved without hard work and doing what is necessary to achieve it.
