7 belangrijke redenen waarom je niet slaagt – volgens Napoleon Hill

Wie is Napoleon Hill ?

Napoleon Hill mag beschouwd worden als de grondlegger van de persoonlijke ontwikkeling. Hij heeft vele boeken op zijn naam staan en miljoenen mensen daarmee positief beïnvloed. Vele motivational speakers en schrijvers anno 2009 gebruiken de kennis van Napoleon Hill opgeschreven in al zijn boeken.

Hier kan je een review lezen van één van zijn bekendste boeken, namelijk “Think and grow rich”. 

Napoleon Hill heeft zijn gehele leven – hij is 87 jaar geworden – bestudeerd waarom mensen wel of niet succesvol worden. Hij heeft honderden mensen geïnterviewd en tientallen boeken hierover geschreven.

Hieronder een lijstje met belangrijke redenen – volgens Hill – waarom het je niet slaagt

7 belangrijke redenen waarom je niet slaagt

Je hebt geen duidelijke doelen uitgestippeld.
Als je geen duidelijk doel of uitdaging (ofwel op korte termijn, ofwel op lange termijn) is de kans klein om succesvol te worden.

Je hebt geen ambitie om boven het gemiddelde uit te steken.
Om succes te kennen mag je niet onverschillig blijven tegen de kansen die op je af komen. Je moet je ervan bewust zijn dat het n odig is om af en toe offers te brengen.

Je hebt geen zelf discipline

Discipline krijg je door zelf controle. Dit wil zeggen dat je je bewust bent van je positieve en negatieve eigenschappen. Zelf controle is één van de grootste uitdagingen.

Je stelt alles uit
Dit is één van de meest voorkomende oorzaken van falen. Uitstellen wil zeggen dat je kansen op succes verspilt. Iedereen “wacht” steeds op het juiste moment om actie te ondernemen.
Wacht niet. Het juiste moment bestaat niet.

Je geeft te snel op
Iets beginnen is meestal niet zo moeilijk maar iets volhouden wel. Velen geven op bij de eerste keer dat er is fout gaat. Hou vol.
Succesvolle mensen falen 100 keer en geven nooit op. Ze slagen bij 101. J

Je mist besluitvaardigheid
Succesvolle mensen kunnen snel een beslissing nemen. Ze twijfelen niet. Als het nodig is, passen ze hun besluiten aan.
Niet kunnen besluiten en uitstelgedrag gaan hand in hand samen. Probeer je bewust te worden van deze negatieve eigenschappen.

Je bent te voorzichtig
Degene die besluitloos omgaat met de kansen die hij tegenkomt, krijgt uiteindelijk de overgebleven restjes op zijn pad.
Beslis en neem actie. Doe iets met de kansen die je krijgt.
