Why do most people fail to create a big life for themselves?

Every person in the world wants to be successful, and live a better life. But how many people are there who actually become successful, fulfill their dreams, and live a better & meaningful life? Here you will get to know 5 major reasons why most people fail to create a big life for themselves.

1) They afraid to dream big

The problem with most people is that they tend to underestimate themselves. They feel that they can only live an ordinary life. Since childhood, they were being taught that they belong to a common family, who can’t afford an extraordinary life. This creates a low-quality belief system in their minds since childhood, which prevents them from dreaming big. They convinced themselves that they won’t be able to live an extraordinary life and successful life. All they can afford to live is ordinary life and a middle-class life.

That is why these people are afraid to dream big because they feel that having big dreams and thoughts is not their cup of tea. This is due to their limited mindset. They are not familiar with the extraordinary power of their mind. Because of this, they won’t be able to use it in the true sense. As a result of which, they spend their whole life thinking that they were born just to lead a normal life. And this thinking prevents them from moving forward in life and making something big out of it.

You need to dream big to live a big and successful life. Everything in this world creates twice. First in the mind and then, in the real experience. Unless you think it or imagine it in your mind, you won’t be able to experience it in your life. So, learn to dream big. Get rid of this low-quality belief system, that you have nurtured since childhood and adopt a growth mindset.

2) They spend most of their time with those who also afraid to dream big

With whom you spend most of the time decides who you become in the future. If you spend most of the time with 5 idiots, then you will be the 6th and if you spend most of the time with 5 successful people, then you will be the 6th. This is how important the association is. You need to choose very consciously with whom you spend your time. Most people spend time with middle-class people, who are also afraid to dream big & struggling with their low-quality belief system. If your association consists of most of these types of people, then will you get the motivation to dream big? No chance.

Be in an association of people having the rich-class mindset, who will motivate you to dream big. Association of such type of people inspires you to do more in life and making something big out of it. Only such type of association is capable of breaking your fixed mindset and can upgrade you towards a growth mindset.

3) They refuse to learn & listen

The biggest quality of successful people is that they never stop learning. They are always willing to learn new things, whether it is a skill or a different kind of concept. The first step to have a growth mindset, which is responsible for all success, is the willingness to learn & listen. Ones who refuse to learn something new are the ones who got stuck in life. These types of people won’t make big in life. As the world changes continuously and new things coming up every another second. If you won’t upgrade your knowledge at the regular interval, Then you’ll be screwed in the long run.

Develop a quality to learn from everyone around you. No one knows everything but everyone knows something. Set aside your ego and start learning. No matter, if the person standing in front of you is younger to you, elder to you, or belongs to your peers’ group. Learn something from everyone. This is how you grow and upgrade your knowledge. Always remember: Ego is our biggest enemy as it prevents us to learn something new.

4) They always wonder – “What if I fail?

This is one of the biggest problems of middle-class people, they always wonder before starting any work – what if I fail? This happens with them because of the low-quality belief system they carry since childhood. Because they don’t believe in themselves that they also do deserve the life they want, their mind creates such types of self-doubts, which stops them to take relevant actions and sucks their motivation level.

Instead of saying – What if I fail? Start saying – What if I succeed? Say both the statement loudly and you will find the difference in the vibes you’ll get. Believe in yourself. Trust your dream. Focus on your actions. Ignore other people’s opinions. Have faith in the process. Don’t be afraid of failures, they will come only to make you strong and to uplift you towards your dream. Shift your mindset and change your life.

5) They lack patience

Once Gary Vaynerchuk said – “Patience is the core ingredient for the success of most of the people.” Patience is such a quality that is the biggest reason for the success of every successful person in the world. If you do not have the patience, then there are high chances that you will not be able to fulfill your dreams. Because no one knows how long it will take to fulfill the dreams. But the person who believes in himself and knows that his dream will definitely come true, only he waits till the fulfillment of his dream and this shows his patience level.

Your patience level reflects your honesty and commitment level. If you are truly honest and highly committed to your dreams, then you can wait for your dreams to come true. Despite multiple failures, disappointments, setbacks, or self-doubts, you will never lose your focus. You will never stop until you succeed. Most people give up very easily when they encounter failures. This shows they lack patience. Due to this, they lack success. Be determined. Be persistent. Have patience. Don’t give up. This is how you will be successful.
