4 Destructive Habits of People Who Continue To Fail At Everything They Do

By Dr. Robert Anthony

Destructive Habit #1 – They Give Up Easily

Successful people treat failures as stepping stones to success. Those who seldom succeed usually call it quits upon recognizing the first signs of failure. At first, they may be excited to start an endeavor. But then they lose interest fairly quickly, especially when they encounter problems. Then they go and search for a new goal, business, career or relationship and get the same results. People who consistently fail don’t have the persistence to work though their problems and obstacles to fulfill their dreams.

Destructive Habit #2 – They Try to Bring Others Down To Their Level

People who consistently fail envy other successful individuals. Instead of working hard to be like them, they spread rumors and try every dirty trick to bring them down. They could have asked these successful people for help to succeed, but no, they’re too proud. They don’t want to ask advice. Moreover, they’re too negative to accomplish anything.

Destructive Habit #3 – They Waste Their Time

They don’t know what to do next. They may just be contented on eating, getting drunk, watching TV, or worse, staring at the blank wall with no thoughts whatsoever to improve their lives. It’s perfectly fine to enjoy once in a while. But time should be managed efficiently in order to succeed. There should be a proper balance between doing nothing and doing something that will bring us closer to our goals, dreams and desires.

Destructive Habit #4 – They Take the Easy Way Out

If there are two roads to choose from, people who consistently fail in everything they do would choose the wider road with less rewards than the narrower road with much better rewards at the end.

They avoid anything that may cause temporary hardship. They want an easy life. What these people don’t know is that what you reap is what you sow. Efforts and action will not go unnoticed.Β  If only they would be willing to sacrifice a little, they would gain a lot more. Successful people reach their goals, dreams and desires through trials and error. They never give up. They do what it takes to create what they desire.

What is the solution to these 4 Destructive Habits?Β  Easy! Just do the reverse. Success is not difficult.Β  All it really takes to succeed is to discover what people that are consistent failures do – and then just do the opposite. You are virtually guaranteed to succeed!

Quick Tip

When you are experiencing “Habits of Failure” there are 3 things you MUST do to transform them into “Habits of Success”…

  1. Stop Judging: Judging yourself for experiencing a Habit of Failure will ONLY result in keeping you stuck there, so the very first thing you need to do is acknowledge it and then say this…“I see that I am currently experiencing [Habit of Failure] I acknowledge it and I let it go.”
  2. Be Willing to Flip the Coin: Most people think that when they have a bad habit they have to get rid of it – that path will only leave you struggling and frustrated. Here’s why…Habits are like sides of a coin – on one side of the coin is the Negative Habit and on the other side is the Positive Habit. The second you shift from trying to get rid of a habit and instead focus on “flipping the coin” things get SO much easier for you.
  3. Power Question Time: Now that you know you are experiencing a negative habit and that the opposite, positive habit is on the other side of the coin, ask yourself this power question…“What is 1 small thing I can do right now – in 15 minutes or less – that is in alignment with the Success Habit of [Name of the Success Habit that is the opposite of the Failure Habit you are currently experiencing]?”And then – GO DO IT! The momentum you will gain in 15 minutes or less will amaze you!

    For me, Destructuctive Habit #1 was the one that resonated for me because I saw myself in that endless loop but because I kept trying different things, it never occurred to me that I was “giving up”.
    Destructive Habit #3 felt familiar, although I employ different avoidance strategies than those named. however, I would have to claim I express it differently and I would change the language a bit because I don’t think that my I ever felt “contented” while wasting my time. And there were two examples given that I was caused me to question the veracity of the examples (the habit is valid, other examples could be more illustrative*.). I am a proponent of what I call gestation time so that seeds of ideas germinate and grow inside of me while I’m doing other things so that my relationship with my ideas becomes a collaboration between the budding notion and me. In fact, all the examples you gave: eating, watching TV, drinking can be partaken in in healthy ways. The subtle difference is how or why activities that are chosen. If they are intended (consciously or unconsciously) to numb or shut you down from yourself and the world the are destructive. I think that the subtler forms of “wasting time” are more insidious. For example my writing this is on some level a waste of my time because I’m not accomplishing things on my to-do list. But because I’m writing and responding and thinking is “productive” it will appears less clear that I am wasting my time. So I would have to call Destructive Habit # 3 Avoidance Tactics and list those to be the truth for me.
    I do not do either #2 or #4 but I see how the ways I do not make conscious and aware choices about what to do when and how I let others distract me and I allow myself to stop what I am doing and that always gets me creates more pile ups and energetic and physical clutter that drain me. So although the habits you named here are not an accurate reflection of me and my avoidance strategies, they gave me insight into my avoidance strategies.

    I use the Kaizen Method of takibg the smallest step. I know it gets me moving buts elf awareness and releasing patterns that no longer serve get to the root cause.
