6 things you should stop doing if you want to be successful

What not to do to be successful.

There are very many pieces of advice out there telling people what to do if they want to succeed.

Here are 6 things you should NOT do.

1. Worrying about uncontrollable things.

This accomplishes nothing. Times will get tougher before they get better. You could always seek help or wait out the issues rather than worry about them.

2. Putting too much pressure on yourself.

Achievers and ambitious people always want to outdo themselves. They push themselves to the limit to make sure that they always achieve more than they did last time. They also punish themselves whenever they don't meet the outrageous targets they had set for themselves.

3. Caring about other people's opinions.

This makes them vulnerable to negative attitudes, malice and people out to share their misery.

4. Being around pessimists.

These are the kinds of people who just try to kill any hopes other people have. They mock dreams, inhibit ambition and generally suck the life out of a room.

5. Ignoring your passion.

Some people would encourage you to drop jobs that don't involve your passion. But life and responsibilities have a way of popping up. Should you find yourself in such a situation, you should be prepared to do double the work. When you aren't at your job, you should continue working on your passions. Just as thoroughly as you would your job.

6. Not letting go of the past.

If you made any mistakes, learn from them. Don't keep beating yourself up over it. Don't think about options you should have considered or lost opportunities.
