The Reasons Why You Can’t Succeed In Life

In this post i will share with you the reasons why you can’t succeed in life and what you need to do to be successful.

 Self doubt


Basically by you having self doubt, it will be almost impossible for you to ever get successful or live a truly harmonious life.

Self doubt is literally the seed of destruction which you are planting in your mind all of the time if you constantly live in self doubt and lack confidence in your abilities to live the life you were always supposed to live.

A lot of people believe that they are just not good enough at what they do or are trying to do at becoming successful,  there is always a voice in their heads that suggests “you should pack in whatever you are trying to do and just be a failure”… or it say’s “you’ve tried this before and look where it got you.”

So you then end up living in self doubt. The way through this is to trust your intuition and ignore the voice in your head.

“When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.” ~Honore de Balzac

You do not know what you want


This is another big hurdle to conquer when wanting to achieve success in life, how on earth do you expect to get to where you desire to be or achieve if you do not know exactly what you want/desire, it’s like setting sail on a ship and not knowing in the slightest, where you are going. (Having no map)

Of course it is just science and with you not having any direction or without giving the mind possibilities or plans/visions on what you want to achieve then the mind will not be able to conceive of this. It will work against you rather than with for you.

This is just how the laws of the universe work for us, it does not have emotions… it just gives you more of what you have asked for, so in that sense… if you do not know what you desire, then you will just be given more of not knowing what you desire because you subconsciously asked for it.

The obvious thing to solve with this issue is of course to find out what you really do want, write it down and plan out the steps it will take to achieve it, without adding any time pressure or expectations.


You suffer from a negative condition

I used to be a sufferer of a negative condition and so are most of the population so it wouldn’t surprise me if you are/were. You can not possibly have any desire of becoming successful in life if you spend all or most of your life in a fearful, anxious or depressed state of mind, this is about the furthest thing you want at that time and it is about the furthest thing you want if you really do desire becoming successful and living a beautiful life.

The thing you really want is something to help you overcome your negative issues first, so i strongly recommend a negative emotional elimination program called The Linden Method, it is truly magnificent at removing all of your issues and the whole process is fun, simple and pretty much effortless compare to other methods. The success rate is in the high nineties.

Then when you are free of emotional negativity, then it can be in all your interest to get the most out of live and become successful.


You are not predominately present/awake


Most of the worlds population are controlled by societies plan/governments and this is due to the fact that a lot of the people are predominately unconscious and live in a state of fear, so it is very easy to control people and make them give in to the system.

Most people do not know how to think and don’t think for themselves, is it any wonder then why lives are lived in such a dysfunctional way.

Personally i do not follow any system held by society or the government, nor do i ever intend to because i am predominately present or in other words awake.

I follow a system which teaches me how to think and think for myself, not what the herd mentality follow. (open minded)

Unconsciousness is the key word to use here as this is a real massive problem in the world… Wars, violence, starvation, poverty etc are all signs of worldly unconsciousness and this can only be stopped by becoming conscious of what is actually going on behind closed doors or whatever you see and hear about on the news or in most areas of your lives.

Also the chances of becoming successful when living in a state of unconsciousness are in my opinion pretty much non-existent, however a lot of people have become successful without being conscious/awake but i take it you’d rather be in a higher state of consciousness and enjoy the process of creating your ideal, successful life… rather than being unconscious and living in some form of negativity.

You fear making mistakes


Most of the world have the concept of mistakes backward, most people encourage people to fear making mistakes, this is insane and ridiculous and at the same time pretty understandable if you are not aware why mistakes are actually one of the main ingredients for success, believe it or not you can become more successful if you make more mistakes in life because it is only through failing do we end up becoming successful, the more mistakes you make, the more chance you’ll get at success.

This may sound backward to most but in actual fact this really is effective if you want to increase your chances of success and the way to do that is to double your rates of failure/mistakes.

Your mindset


Most importantly if you really do desire success, then the main ingredient to which you are missing out on and the number one reason why you cannot create success at this moment is because of your mindset, a powerfully motivated and positive mindset can truly create real gold at getting you successful. Or a truly negative overwhelming mindset can create all hell.


After all is is only a choice between love and fear, Love what you do and have no fear 🙂

Below is a video which reveals the perfect explanation of why you cannot be successful in life and what you need to be aware of to actually create the success you so truly desire.

Notice I use the word desire a lot more than the word want, desire is much more powerful than want and you will find that out for yourself if you think about it more and repeat the word desire more than the word want.

Desire is more powerful, wanting is weakness.

I am confident that you have gained enough information in this post to really consider if you are making the right choices in life and actually know what you want.

    Love reading your posts! 🙂 this is something I have really been struggling with recently, I have all these goals set out that I want to achieve I know what I want, but deep down I still have this self doubt in my mind. I know I will have to work on changing my mindset.

    love some of the quotes you have put up too – “When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.” im gonna start using this line as a mantra to encourage my success, thank you! 🙂
