Small decisions in life can determine what happens in your life and where you end up. If you are having problems being successful at anything you should consider making some changes in your life no matter how small.
NEVER TRYING SOMETHING NEW:
Some people never try, they never take reasonable risks but rather they wait for an already made way to become rich or an already tested plan before they can join the boat which sometimes never comes.
2. LACK OF FOCUS:
It is a religious society, majority don’t believe that it is what they input that determines the output rather they believe in miracle. Some indulge in activities that does not allow them to focus on what they should. A very good example of such activity is sport betting. In case you don’t know, the effect of sport betting on our society is damaging making young adults to easily part ways with money and not focusing on important things in life.
3. POOR FINANCIAL DISCIPLINE:
Managing their income is one of the most difficult things for most Nigerians. As so many Nigerians end up spending their hard-earned money on things they don’t really need at the moment. Can you imagine how much a man who is struggling to feed loses to sport betting weekly. As hard as the economy is, they still throw a lot of money away betting on sport.
4. ALWAYS PUTTING BLAME ON OTHERS:
Some Nigerians put all the blame on others when things are not going well. But people fail every time trying something new. It is not bad trying new things at all. Instead of taking the blame, they put the blame on friends, family members, neighbours, the society, witchcraft and what have you. People can learn to take blames, learn
from mistakes and become better.
5. NO CONTINGENCY PLAN:
As the saying goes: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. No matter what we want to do, always have backup plans so that if one plan fails you can always fall back to the other instead of becoming penniless. Divide your capital and invest them on different businesses if one fails the other can save you.
6. LOOKING FOR QUICK WAYS TO GET RICH:
Advertisements on how to get rich quickly are uncountable these days, and I can say and I am right that those are most times scam or not really showing the true difficulty in making the profit. People make it look like it’s nothing when it comes to making money when we all know the amount of effort required to make money.
7. WRONG FRIENDS:
It is simple, any how you want to look at it friends influence their friends . If you do not have friends that share the same goal at least that are ready to support you, it is a just a matter of time before you derail from your goals.
8. LACK OF GOALS:
How does a person live life without goals, may be a young guy who is betting on virtual sport in one of the betting shops across the street would have an answer. No goals in life or forgotten goals; they wander just doing whatever they see. A person without goals can be likened to a ship without direction it just follows the direction the wind pushes it to.
