PostSubject: TOP TEN ROAD BLOCKS TO SUCCESS   Thu Dec 20, 2007 9:23 am

Top Ten Roadblocks to Your Success

Everyone wants to succeed, right? Then why is it that in the most affluent time our world has ever known, with so many resources and tools at our disposal, are so few people thriving? Why do so many people feel unsuccessful?

In pondering these all-important questions, Iíve come up with my list of obstaclesóthe bottlenecks and traffic jams on the super highway to success. These are the top reasons why I think people donít succeed. When youíre frustrated by your lack of progress, go through this list and look for what may be holding you back.

1. Confusion. Most people I talk to donít know what it is they really want to achieve. They often know what they donít want, but then thatís where their focus and energy goesóto what they donít want. Being unclear on what you want is one of the biggest stumbling blocks to success. Paul Meyer says if youíre not achieving the success you desire itís simply because your objectives are not clearly defined.

2. Lack of Focus. You can be clear on your goal, but if you donít stay focused, if you take on too much, if you fill your life with busy things or operate inconsistently, you will fail. Focus creates power. A riverís might is harnessed by a dam and focused into electrical energy. Some people say you can achieve everything you want. I donít believe that. But I do believe you can achieve anything you want.

3. Not Enough Reasons. Reasons come first, answers come second. If you have powerful enough reasons, you can accomplish anything you desire. Significant success demands passion. When your why is strong enough, the how will come.

4. Lack of Self-Esteem. Many people simply donít feel worthy of success. This is a tough one. I can tell you itís based on an erroneous belief, but you have to get that for yourself. Read the books. Listen to the tapes. Hang out with people who can help you see your highest and best. You deserve to be successful. There is no reason for you not to have what you want unless you ignore the principles of success.

5. Lack of Belief. This is related to worthiness, but thereís more to it. You need to believe in yourself and in the creative process. Winners expect to win. A shortage of belief causes many people to give up or never begin in the first place. In many cases, it causes one to take shortcuts that sabotage their success.

6. Deficient Knowledge. A worthy goal usually requires learning new things. Buckminster Fuller said, "You canít learn less." Perhaps youíre not sure what it is you need to learn in order to get where you want to go. Find out. But donít let lack of knowledge keep you from starting. If you wait until you know it all, youíll never begin. Start from where you are and build the bridge as you walk on it.

7. Insufficient Skills. Most likely there are certain skill sets you lack which will hinder your progress. Discover what these are and start today in gaining the necessary skills. Perhaps you need to learn how to effectively use a computer and the Internet. Maybe you need to up-level your communication or time management proficiency. Even a good attitude is a skill. Enhancing your skills is a lifelong investment that will pay you big dividends.

8. Not Enough Money. Most people think this is the number one reason why they havenít achieved their dreams. They think that if they just had more money then they would be successful. But itís rarely a money problem, itís usually an idea problem. With good ideas and a tenacious spirit you can get the funding you need.

9. Low Energy. Vince Lombardi said, "Fatigue makes cowards of us all." In order to have the energy and stamina to win, we need to take care of our bodies. Get adequate rest, eat the right foods and refrain from careless and unsafe behavior. Our achievement is our production. Our bodies, our minds and our intuition make up our production capacity. If we donít properly care for ourselves, weíll be unable to produce.

10. Inadequate Support. You donít need to go it alone. Everyone needs help. Iíve seen far too many people fail because they werenít willing to ask for help or didnít know where to turn in order to get it. There are always people who can help. Create a MasterMind team. Bring in talent and resources from others and make it a win-win situation. Align yourself with organizations that can help you succeed.

Road block is the most appropriate metaphor to describe obstacles in the way of success. Major Khalid Nasr has aptly described the attributes of skilled labour & leadership elsewhere, and is absolutely justified in forewarning the prospective candidates for leadership for avoiding generally pitfalls; which he has elaborated in essence. It's a matter of common observation that these roadblocks are seldom visualised for want of foresight, and one is bewildered at the end why the pedetermined objectives couldn't be achieved. Bravo Major Khalid Nasr, may Allah bless yu with the completion of mission that you have undertaken.
