Are you ready to succeed? Are you having trouble getting there? Almost everyone in the world wants to be wildly successful but not everyone knows how. There are so many books and articles out there telling you what you should do to be successful, but what should you avoid?

Here are some quick tips on what you should stop doing to boost your success:

1. Being selfish

When you pick someone to do business with, do you want someone who is only concerned about themselves, or do you want someone who is also concerned about your needs? When you are selfish in business, it shows you don’t care about your customer. I am not saying don’t think about yourself, cause how would you and your business thrive if you only thought about everyone else?

Making sure you aren’t too selfish can be hard, because everyone sees what they need first, and it’s a lot harder to understand how others are feeling. Nonetheless, taking steps every day to help others no matter how small, can help boost your business, make connections, and help you feel better about yourself. Whether you donate your time, money, or even just an ear, it can help not only make someone else’s day, but it can also help make yours.

2. Accepting your fears

What are you afraid of? Spiders? Heights?  Snakes? The dark? Failure? All of these are very common fears, but when we let ourselves fall victim to these fears we stop ourselves from living life to the fullest. Letting fear get in the way of you moving forward can not just get you stuck in a rut, it can also make you feel powerless. So how do we combat this?

Start with small things you are afraid of, whether it is talking to someone new or even trying somewhere new to eat. Then you can slowly work your way up to bigger fears. You can also find someone to help coach you through your fears, reassure you, and help you take them on a little at a time. The key thing to remember is fear is a part of everyone’s life, and even if you fail to overcome it, you can always try again another day.

“It’s OKAY to be scared. Being scared means you’re about to do something really, really brave.” – Mandy Hale

3. Being lazy

Do you ever have those Sunday mornings where you stay in bed a few extra hours or perhaps all day? Well, having a day or two like that every so often isn’t bad, but it’s easy to make that a habit. Making sure you are active in every part of your life is so important to becoming successful.

Every day you should try to improve some part of your life. Whether it be a relationship, working out, or your business, when you improve your life it will help you not only feel more successful, but it will become a habit, and you will be constantly reaching for more. Setting goals with deadlines, no matter how small will help you to make sure you are always trying to improve your life.

4. Feeling entitled

Knowing your worth is very important, but thinking you deserve things is totally different. Feeling entitled can completely halt your business. If you think you deserve things, why would you work for them? If you aren’t getting clients, then something is wrong. You should look at the problem, and try to fix it.

If you just sit around and think your business has got everything going on, and you deserve all the clientele, then nothing is going to get fixed and your business is going to fail.  This doesn’t only apply to your business, but every aspect of your life. It is important to remember that success isn’t only wealth and power, but also how balanced you are in your personal life.

5. Hanging out with toxic people

Who you hang around is who influences you and your life. The saying you are what you eat applies to what you consume in your daily life as well. If you are in constant contact with people who hang around all day and do nothing, then what do you think you are going to do? If you want to be successful, wouldn’t it make sense to be with people who are constantly pushing you?

Some people may say you can’t just drop your friends because they aren’t successful, but you can make new friends. It’s important to have high standards for the people you have around you, because they have more of an impact on you then you can imagine.

“There’s folks you just don’t need. You’re better off without em. Your life is just a little better because they ain’t in it.” – William Gay

Success isn’t easy; it is something that you constantly have to reach for. Setting your sights on success can seem like an impossible journey, but starting by just cutting these five things out of your life can put you on the path to success without even noticing. I am not saying that cutting these things out will bring you instant success, but it will start you on the road to success, and make your journey a lot easier. Always remember that success isn’t just a destination, it is a frame of mind.
