Everyone out there wants to accomplish something great, to have success. Success can mean many things to different people. In some instances, success often times results in making a lot of money. Then there are those who want to be known and impart wisdom on others. Others consider success in successfully acquiring knowledge. The list could continue on. While success can be defined by any number of metrics, barriers to success can also be defined as well.
These roadblocks can be potentially problematic but easy for a resourceful person to navigate. Other times, these roadblocks can be something that canstop the best laid plans cold and send any individual back to the drawing board. The barriers lead to many things and even when your plan is stopped, you may still achieve partial success or even learn something from your barrier.
Let us present a list of five common barriers to success and briefly discuss how these barriers of success will derail you in your personal and professional live.
Five Barriers of Success
First we have time. Time is something that waits for no person, no matter how important you sense that you might be. If someone does not have enough time, or wastes too much time, success will not occur. Procrastination is a most deadly enemy but even when someone does not dawdle and stall, then they might fall short. Time will deliver us all and sometimes it will deliver us failure.
Money is another common factor to success. Sadly for some things, we do need the resources to move us forward. If someone does not have the resources to achieve a higher form of education like college or university, they may not have to go, unless they take out a loan. Which may for some be considered a failure of a different kind. An insufficientamount of resources are the killer of many goals.
Morality has derailed many great plans. Some people have achieved success, but there should be asterisk placed near their accomplishments thanks to the sneaky and underhanded way. While others, have not achieved success, because they refused to break their own moral principles. While we do not advocate any underhanded tactics, one should realize that not everyone is going to play fair. In a perfect world, they would fall in the end, but the world is far from perfect.
Mortality is another key obstacle for success. Not to be confused with morality, but rather the fact that we are merely just humans. We have our physical, mental, and emotional limits. Some limits are greater than others. There is nothing wrong with being ambitious. When we set the bar to a high height and just cannot reach it, it is because we have peaked.
You are another reason why you have not succeed. Or to be more accurate, the fact that you have self doubts. If the battle is lost already in the theater of the mind, then failure is inevitable in the physical world. Many listen too harshly to discouraging words. Thus self doubt settles in and achievement becomes less. A negative attitude lends itself to a barrier which will derail all of your well placed plans.
Succeeding in your goals is a great feeling and if you have succeeded you know that. If not, perhaps some day you may overcome these success barriers and any others that stand in your path.
