Everyone wants to be successful but not everyone achieves success. Many people will never succeed because of certain things they do.

Here are 10 reasons why some people never succeed

1. You can’t succeed when you don’t understand the importance of time. Successful people know that time is more valuable than money and you won’t succeed until you understand this.

2. You can’t succeed if you are satisfied with mediocrity. Successful people pursue excellence no matter the circumstances.

3. You can’t succeed if you don’t know the importance of planning. People who fail to plan have planned to fail already.

4. You can’t succeed if you are good at making excuses. Successful people don’t look for excuses as to why they can’t do it.

5. You can’t be successful if you keep pushing till tomorrow what you can do today. If you want to be successful, you should do what you have to do now because nothing is ever promised tomorrow.

6. You can’t be successful if you are quick to give up when you face challenges. Successful people understand that challenges are only as big as you make them seem. Until you learn to overcome challenges, you won’t be successful.

7. You can’t be successful if you can’t make decisions of your own. You can’t be successful if you are easily pushed around by people and never make your own decisions.

8. You can’t be successful if you are not open-minded. Successful people don’t expect everyone to view life as they view it.

9. You can’t be successful if you mistake being busy with productivity. Just because you are busy everyday doesn’t mean you will be successful. The question you should ask yourself is what are you really busy doing? If what you are busy doing won’t help you achieve your goals, then you should think again.

10. You can’t be successful if you limit yourself. Successful people never limit themselves. You have to believe you can do it if you want to be successful.

    Interesting even though you left out the element of chance. My own experience shows that there is a limit beyond which our ingenuity cannot take us without the hand of providence. I stand tall in most of the aspects you highlighted but am still far from being a successful person when it comes to material possessions which humans generally use as a yardstick in measuring success. What about family background, politics,environment and many other factors which also act either as a push or hindrance to many who are struggling genuinely to make meaning out of their lives?
