They have a story that they have no been able to change. They are so entrenched in the old chapters that they have forgotten they have the opportunity to write the new chapters, therefore the old chapters become the current and new chapters.

Whether it’s the lottery, a relationship, a better job or income opportunity; successful people are always waiting for it, hoping for it. The tragedy is that if it ever came, they would;t know what to do with it. They have not prepared themselves to handle such great things in life. This is why you hear of the person who won the lottery and within a couple years are broke again or the person who landed the perfect partner and within a short time, that partner is gone. Average people have not become the kind of person they needed to be to handle greatness and therefore Greatness leaves them. Successful people focus more on the process, rather than the result. They know that results come with belief, vision and a mindset of constant improvement on all levels, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.

 

6. Average people play the blame game.

It’s never their fault. There is always someone or something to blame for their current situation. Successful people know that they are ultimately responsible for their life and if they want something different then they must think different and do different. Successful people are accountable to what they have or do not have in their life. Wise people know how to help average people shift their perception. They never take anything personally and accept the blame of the average. In doing so, they diffuse the energy of the average and give them the opportunity to shift that blame mentality, take responsibility and move forward.

Average people may have big dreams, but never actually set a game plan in place to reach them. They tell themselves that it may never happen.

They are often victims of circumstance. Average people have not gotten in touch with who they really are and what they are capable of. They have no desire to achieve, to improve, to make life better.

Here’s the deal…. When you don’t make a choice, you have still made a choice. Procrastination… That is the mantra of the average. Average people wait and wait and wait, not understanding that they have made the choice to remain average. Average people choose to be average. It is the little choices that we make everyday that will determine our life. Average people don’t see this, they continue to stay in their comfort zone, which can be quite uncomfortable, but not as uncomfortable as change would be. Successful people choose to become better; a better person, a better spouse or partner, a better father or mother, a better business person, a better athelete, a better musician, a better human! Successful people know that everyday they make choices and those choices lead to either a life by default or a life by design!

If you see some of yourself in these traits, then you are normal. We are all works in progress and change will come when you decide to start practicing what successful people do. I have a system in place that will allow you to become that person that you know you can be. Contact me for more information.
