6 Things You Need To Give Up If You Want To Be Successful

To be wildly successful, here are the things you need to give up to pursue your dream path.

Make your life and business successful. Discover how to become successful, make more money and live a happier life. Successful people never make excuses. They get work done and don’t let petty circumstances come in the way of achieving their goals. Here is everything you need to know about the healthy habits and characteristics you need to incorporate into your life in order to be successful.

Playing it safe. 

To be successful you need to be a risk-taker. There is nothing noble about dimming your light so others can shine more, the world doesn’t work like that. You have take huge financial and emotional risks to be successful, even if you are the only person who can see your vision, you have to go all in. Allow your dreams to become realities.


Life does not happen to you, it happens for you. Realise that you and you alone are responsible for your life. Excuses will limit and prevent you from achieving your goals so realise that you need to own your life and be the best version of yourself you can be.


Travers Beynon said: “Successful people don’t believe in luck, they believe in hard work.” Successful people don’t wait for luck to strike them in order to achieve a breakthrough. Be strategic, work hard but know that success doesn’t just come from working hard. You have to hustle like a pro.

Toxic people

Toxic people are usually very negative and they want to drain your energy. Moving past toxic relationships requires true acceptance of the fact that you cannot force toxic people to change. Toxic people are motivated by their own complex problems and needs. Give some serious thought to what you will tolerate and what you won’t. Choose your battles wisely and take up new hobbies and passions to meet positive people.

Free time. 

Wildly successful people don’t have free-time. They are always using their time to complete something or achieve something. Rather than watching television, successful people read about their industry. Instead of sleeping in, they spend their precious “free” moments with their family. Be smart about your time.

Being a people pleaser. 

People-pleasers put everyone else before themselves. For most, saying “yes” is a habit; for others, it is almost an addiction that makes them feel like they need to be needed. This makes them feel important and like they are contributing to someone else’s life. This couldn’t be more wrong, understand that not everyone will like you and not everybody will be a supporter. Value your partner and those friends who are always there for you instead.
