Finding success shouldn't be something hard, nor should success be limited to those "lucky" types of people. Rather, success should, and can be, a regular occurrence for all of us.
However, more often than naught, our seeming lack of success boils down to how we perceive the world around us. If we could only just make that subtle shift perhaps we would then begin to see how successful our lives really have been, are, and can be.
Actually, making that shift doesn't need to be hard - all we have to do is begin to search for the true essence of our being. What I mean by that is: searching to know who we really are. Rather than identifying with self-imposed limiting characteristics and descriptions, we should seek our true Self - that which does not change.
As you make this shift into understanding your personal truth, you will naturally come into more success. How quick you progress depends on how dedicated and pointed your focus is.
Now, rather than leave you simply with the task of Self-inquiry, let me also point out that there will be setbacks, detours, delays etc. We will encounter various obstacles on our journey to success and those are:
Lack of progress
and, Distracted Attention.
Doubt: Remember why you chose your goal in the first place. Look to others who have overcome difficulty. Have faith for your inner strength.
Negligence: Learn how to do tasks properly. Read other resources, as for help from people with knowledge. Put into place correct actions and behaviors.
Confusion: Learn from others who have had success. Read from reliable sources while trying to learn how they came to their conclusions.
Failure to make Progress: Write a schedule or plan of action that is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and can be set to a timeline. Addictions / Attachments: Surround yourself with people who don't support bad habits or addictions. Change your environment to reflect more ideal circumstances.
Misperceptions: Practice discernment by questioning and seeking to know, rather than blindly accepting.
Distractions: Remain focused, yet be relaxed when attention waivers. It's ok to rest and relax. Take a moment to recoup and then double-up efforts to achieve your goal!
