5 Signs That Shows You May Never Be
Successful In Life!
BY Ben-briann Tsharq. 20th June 2016.
One of the basic goals of man on earth
aside survival is to be a success or
rather to become successful.
Success or been successful can be
described as achieving of results wanted
or hoped for; this may include getting
things done, achieving varying goals and
positions in the society.
To be a success is one drive every man
has and actualizing success most times
is a lifelong goal for every individual on
In the midst of the basic drive for
success, we still have breeds and
handful of underachievers and
They keep failing and going in cycles.
These are attributes most people will
say are dependent on a lot of
uncontrollable factors like spirituality,
moral standing …
Inasmuch as we cannot rule those
factors out, there are others we need to
look out for.
Success cannot be measured but it can
be deduced and invariably be
dependent on some activities and
behavioral traits we don’t really give
much importance and values to.
This will go on to show you what you
need to know about hindrances you are
facing towards your ability to be a
success in life and i advise that you read
1. INABILITY TO MAKE DECISIONS AND
The very first sign you should look out
for in your quest for success is how
decisive and independent you are.
Can you make drastic decisions without
seeking the consent and validation of
Are you still dependent on parents,
friends etc. for your daily survival?
Making decisions are the litmus test
that shows your readiness and maturity
as a man who will be a potential success
and a decreased level of dependence on
others (parents, friends, partner, spouse
etc.) for survival really shows that you
are on of a kind and also on the right
Been able to call the shots and making
decisions on your own most times
coupled with your independence will go
a long way to tell the world of your
arrival, but if negative, well you will
never find it easy becoming a success!
2. YOU DON’T HAVE GOALS AND
A goal is more like an aim or purpose
that you drive towards to actualize your
aspirations of been a success.
Having no goal is as good as living a
purposeless life because you will not
also be privy to make great plans.
Planning is really important to your
general quest for success, a popular
saying goes thus “he who fails to plan,
plans to fail”.
Setting plans is more like putting up
structures and landmarks that will guide
you to an inevitable success.
Planning is important because without a
set down pattern to follow to achieving
your goals, you are definitely going to
remain a complete failure and success
will be very far from your reach.
3. YOU WORRY ABOUT HOW PEOPLE
SEE YOU AND WHAT THEY SAY.
The idea of social interaction is
cemented on your relationship with
others and how well you can tailor and
adapt yourself to the current trend and
opinions of others.
It is ideal to be worried and concerned
about how people see you and regard, it
is even more great to know there
opinion of you, but this can also be your
People will always talk and not
everyone will like you, but the moment
you realize it is your life you are living
and not theirs, then it is imperative to
know that they are not really supposed
to tell you how to live your life.
Constantly seeking validation and
approval from others by trying to act to
their requirements and request will do
you a greater harm in your quest for
I will advise that you listen more but
act your best without trying to please
everyone, otherwise, you will just be
the next in number amongst the most
underachieved and unsuccessful people
4. YOU ALWAYS LEAVE THINGS TO
Chance is the level of possibility or
likelihood that something will happen,
and seriously is this what you want to
The earlier you learn that things don’t
just get done on their own the better
for you and your success drive.
Nothing really happens by chance and
even if, it will never be better than
anticipated or when It is really and fully
Take charge of everything around you
no matter how minute or even in-
Don’t ever leave anything to chance
because you will never get what you
really want or sincerely deserve.
Begin to push for things and don’t sit
with arms crossed doing nothing, my
analogy of getting things done is…
“If I did not do it or I don’t have an
input towards its actualization, then it’s
not mine and it’s not worth anything!”
Nothing good comes easy and anything
by chance is mostly not good except
you are content with the bottom of the
success chain left only for mediocre.
5. YOU LOOSE FOCUS EASILY AND
DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT.
Now this is a grave situation, a man who
looses focuses easily and don’t even
know what he wants is a directionless
entity, it would have been advisable not
to be alive.
You should have a focus as an human
being which will give you a clear cut
direction on what you need to do to
achieve what you want. But not even
knowing what you want at first is
already a negative drive on your focus.
As a man, you should begin to write out
achievable wants and set motions to
achieve them by fixing your efforts and
focus on them.
A man without focus and direction can
never achieve anything, the best he can
do in that condition is to fail
If you ever want to succeed, you have
to be focused.
The signs above already have shown you
that you are either on the path to
success or failure and it is left to you to
change course or improve on the
Being successful is a collective and
cumulative effort and it all starts from
when you make up your mind to start
working towards it.
Success is not for the faint-hearted but
for those that can take charge and
weather the storm no matter the
For me I would say ; “take risks if you
win you will be happy. If you lose you
will be wiser”!
May God give us all understanding..
