“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 10

June 19, 2009

REASON # 10 – You worry what your family and
friends would think about you if you read or listened
to self-development material.

Im going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I'm going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I was always embarrassed about reading self-development
books on the train into work.

That was until I realised who was still going to be on the
same train in five years time, and I knew it wasn’t going to
be me!

I still get raised eyebrows from my family, but I will be
the one who is smiling when I achieve what I know that I can
achieve. Only this evening…my sister laughed out loud when
I told her that my eBook was called “The Science of Success”

But…at least I am doing what I want to do.

I take my personal development seriously.

Others may ridicule you…or laugh behind your back…but
they will be the jealous ones when you reach your dream…
and they are still stuck in never-never land!

So the moral of the story is…

Do what you want to do with your life…and not what others
say you should do.

REASON # 4 – You do not know EXACTLY where
you want to be in five years time.

It’s not good enough to think that you know where you want
to be.

I am a firm believer in goal-setting…but I look at it a
little differently. Goals can do more harm than good. If
you look at your life now…could you have predicted where
you would be 5 years ago? I very much doubt it.

Life is complicated. Our priorities can change minute-by-
minute let alone year-by-year. Not reaching your targets
can have such a negative affect on your life. So…

Focus only on THE goal.

Focus on what you really, really want. You almost
certainly won’t know how you will get there…so how will
you be able to plan each step? Instead of looking at what
you need to do…look at what you shouldn’t be doing.

Remove from your life the tasks that don’t help towards
THE goal…and you will free up your time for tasks that
will move you towards it.

When you are moving towards THE goal…strange things
happen. Little things start to go in your favor…
opportunities present themselves when you least expect it.

THE goal begins to come to you as you move towards it…
but it will only move if you do.

I can honestly say that it worked for me. Doors that I had
assumed were closed suddenly began to open up to me as I
was writing my eBook – “The Science of Success”.

REASON # 3 – You’d rather watch television that work
on your personal development.

Once you have used time, you cannot get it back. Isn’t it
more important to use it for your development than for
watching the TV?

One of my top 3 all-time quotes comes from my mentor –
Jim Rohn. He says:

“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money,
but you cannot get more time”

I used to spend all weekend reading the thick broadsheet
newspapers – it used to take that long! I realised that I
was wasting days, even weeks, every year reading about
things that had already happened!

What good will that do for my future?

So now…I’m more selective in what I do…and what I read.
I get as much information from quickly glancing through a
newspaper as I did from reading it from cover to cover. I
only watch the TV programmes I really want to watch…and
not just anything that happens to be on.

Use your time wisely.

Did you know that if you got into the office one hour
earlier every working day…you would be producing almost
7 WORKING WEEKS more work in a 48-week year! (See I even
gave you time off for your vacation.)

I got up an extra hour earlier every day so that I could
spend quality time writing my eBook – “The Science of Success”

Once I had got used to it…I didn’t really notice any
difference!

Imagine the impact 2 hours less TV every night could have
on your life and your future. Makes you think, doesn’t it?
