Whether you’re an entrepreneur or have dreams of success in a different career path, there are a number of flaws that can stand in the way of true success and fulfillment.
So what are those personal flaws and how can you avoid them? Well, identifying these flaws in yourself is the first step toward overcoming these issues! Today, “Scott Binsack” will take a look at the most common flaws that may stand between you and success!
Putting off tasks that should be done today can result in delays, setbacks and a failure to grow, evolve and ultimately, succeed!
So if you’re tempted to postpone and procrastinate when it comes to getting things done, then you need to perform some intense self-examination to determine why you procrastinate and then, develop a strategy to start overcoming this tendency.
You Play Ostrich
Are you prone to sticking your head in the sand? Do you have a tendency of ignoring problems rather than addressing them face on? Are you tempted to skip on to the next section so you don’t need to really consider if you’re prone to playing ostrich?
When you avoid problems or issues, they only grow and become more challenging to resolve. So take action now and stop the avoidance. Realize that sticking your head in the sand only makes things more challenging for you in the future.
Impulsivity can be a very challenging issue to overcome. In fact, you may find yourself feeling as though you’ve got to resolve your impulsivity problem this very second, before you’ve even devised an effective strategy or game plan.
Impulsivity can result in poor decisions and a lack of direction. It can also result in a situation where you fail to perform the proper research or fail to sufficiently consider a situation. This can result in a situation where you go down a path that’s not really right for you, leading to wasted time, wasted energy and a lack of direction. Impulsive individuals are also more apt begin projects that they never see to completion. Or you may jump into a new business venture without really researching what it requires to succeed in that business niche.
If you’re impulsive by nature, find new, positive ways to channel your enthusiasm and excitement. Often, it’s these emotions that are at the root of impulsiveness. For instance, if you’re excited to start a new business venture, don’t immediately run out to lease a building and hire employees. Instead, focus your energy into performing research so you can devise a solid business plan.
You’re Difficult to Work With
No man is an island. You need to work with others, no matter what your chosen business niche or profession may be.
So make a concerted effort to develop your plays-well-with-others skills, which will enable you to make the most of new partnerships and opportunities. This will make it easier for you to find — and keep — business partners, employees, clients and customers.
Also, make a concerted effort to avoid alienating others with your passion. The most successful people tend to be the most passionate and with this passion comes strong emotions which can make you rather difficult to work with (or for.)
You Lack Organization
Organization is absolutely key to success in all areas of life. So if you’re not organized, take action now and make a concerted effort to get organized and on point. This will improve efficiency, while also helping you save time and improve overall performance.
Remember, a lack of organization will only compound matters over time, so the longer you wait to get organized, the more challenging that organization process will become.
With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to finding success and happiness, whatever your next venture or project may be!
