5 Reasons Why You Are Not Successful

Do you think that the people around you are growing leaps and bounds in terms of their financial, mental and physical health, except you? Do you feel ostracized when your friends become highly rich and successful, while you’re still paying bills and playing small with your life?

If so, then here are the 5 main reasons why you are not successful till now.

  • Lack Of Self Belief - Tom thinks that he is good at nothing. He gives a competitive examination, while thinking at the back of his mind that he won’t clear it, and he doesn’t. Tom gets married to a beautiful woman, but feels that it might not last long. Guess what? It doesn’t. Don’t you reckon that you are very much like Tom.

           For real, you think that success is an esoteric, elusive thing only made for the elite group.  If you want to be successful, then the first thing which you’ve got to do is to declare war on your cynical belief system. You’ve got to believe that if anyone has done it at any point in the history, you can do it too. If it’s possible for one, it’s possible for you too.

  • Fear of Failure - I’ve said it many times before, that if you wish to live a happy and prosperous life, then you’ve got to dump your fear of failure in the dustbin. You won’t be able to achieve anything if you are still scared  to do what you are supposed to do.

        Your fear will eventually doom you. What gain do you find by not operating to your potential?  What benefit is there for you if you are not willing to stretch yourself and reach out for the things which you had so badly desired at one point in your life? Replace your fear of failure with the thrill of victory, and you’ll see how your life will change, for better.

  • Loving The Comfort Zone- I like to call it ‘The Dark Zone’ because it is the place where your dreams, ideas and hopes start undergoing through a silent death. This zone has nothing but a pathetic, gloomy and a mediocre life in store for you.

So, be comfortable being uncomfortable. Get out of the herd, quit the comfort zone and join the ‘Rare-Air’ zone of people who have nothing but their A-Game to display every time they show up, because if you follow the routine of the Successful people, then one day you’ll become one among them.

  • Reluctance in Putting The Work - The primary reason why you are not successful is because you only talk about the grind, you only talk about the hustle, but you are reluctant in putting in the work required to be successful. It is said ‘Everyone wants to eat, but only a few are willing to hunt’.

The world does not need anymore preachers. It needs people who are relentless in hunting down the things that they want. So if you wish to be Successful, then get ready for some hard freaking work.

  • Inability To Handle Criticisms - Now, if you get to the conclusion that you’ll be successful after focussing on the above mentioned 4 things, then I’m afraid that you are making a big mistake, because these are the things which even the average people do. The difference lies in the ability to handle criticisms.

Life is not going to present you a crystal stair. Your journey is not going to be hunky dory. There will be times when you’ll fail miserably. People will be making fun of you. They might start doubting on your skills. But what separates the winners from losers, is that the losers let the criticisms break them, but the winners convert it as their breakthrough, which enables them to be successful.

What was the reason which stopped you from achieving success? Do let me know.

A Visit to Orphanage and Old-Age home

Mere words won't be able to do justice to describe the kind of majestic experience which we had on that eventful day. A school trip is always a memorable one, but when it is to such a pious place, than it gets all the more interesting. To be honest, we went off from school in a picnic mode. We were all so excited and pumped up. We were sitting in the buses and there were mimicries being done and songs being sung.

Learning From Nature

The civilisation is trying to destroy it,
But for our children, we've got to preserve it.
The lush green grassland uplifts our mood,
We owe to it a lot as it provides us with nutritious food,
And helps to replenish water with its phenomenon called rain,
Equanimity is the thing which it helps us to maintain.
It rises above discrimination, giving plenty to all,
We humans can learn from it who cheer from others' fall.
Inspiring it is, service is its legacy,
Will we ever shed our ignorance and reach out to the nature ? Well, hopefully!

The last two words of this poem always ignites a sense of optimism within me that one day we will be able to comprehend the true value of nature rather than hurting it when it pleads for mercy; that one day we will take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the rainbow and the serenity of the sunrise ascending gently above the horizon rather than turning our backs onto it, missing out those small moments which really constitute a happy life.

The 2X3X Mindset

Does the title seems to be a bit abstruse. Let me break it down for you. This is something which I learned a few moths ago and guess what? It is doing wonders in my life! This principle states that if you want to double your income and your impact in your organisation, then you must triple your investment in your self-development. 


You can't be progressing in your career if you are not willing to work on yourself and strive to be a better version of yourself with each passing day. What you'll have 2 years from now, 5 years from now,10 years from now solely depends on what you become and what are the things which you are willing to sacrifice today.



 Your income hardly exceeds your self worth and once you acknowledge this very fact, you'll start realising that there is a very urgent need to start learning new skills and be very competitive.

There are innumerable things which are out there in the world which can aide you reach your desired position. Being a bibliophile, I strong…
