Why AM I stuck in a RUT?!?

Choosing Happiness
The Negative Forces Keeping you from your Dreams!!

I wanted to share something I found interesting, by one of the very intelligent forerunners of self-help: Napoleon Hill
The 31 CAUSES OF FAILURE

*Unfavorable hereditary background 
*Lack of a well-defined purpose in life
* Lack of ambition to aim above mediocrity
* Insufficient Education 
*Lack of self-discipline
* Ill health


*Unfavorable environmental influences during childhood
“As the twig is bent, so shall the tree grow.”

* Procrastination
* Lack of persistence
* Negative personality
*Lack of controlled sexual urge
*desire for “something for nothing”
*Lack of a well defined power of decision
*One or more of the six basic fears
*Wrong selection of a mate in marriage
* Over-caution 
* Wrong selection of associates in business
* Superstitions and prejudice 
* Wrong selection of a vocation
* Lack of concentration of effort


         *The habit of indiscriminate spending
*Lack of enthusiasm
*Intolerance
*Intemperance
*Inability to cooperate with others
*Possession of power that was not acquired through self effort 
*Intentional dishonesty
  1. *Egotism and vanity
    *Guessing instead of thinking 
    *Lack of capital 
    *Insert your own personal reason not listed her
Now, which ones are holding YOU back?
I was definitely shocked to learn that I suffer(ed) from a large percentage of that list.
Fortunately, I started realized little by little some things that made me change my whole outlook on life and look at myself in a whole new light.

My hope is that maybe sharing this will spark something in a few of my readers!
Here’s one of my blog posts about following your dreams:
Quit quitting your dreams!
Thanks for stopping by,
All love…
