Feel like success is never going to happen?

By Mark Rhodes | Success Mindset

Long ago before I achieved my own success I wanted it so badly but it didn’t seem like it was ever going to happen.

I started to feel both helpless and that the situation was hopeless, which is obviously not a positive mindset to have. Then it hit me, something made me ask myself the following question:

Am I doing all I could be doing?

Then I realised it wasn’t so much that success wasn’t working out for me but I wasn’t really doing all I could be doing to make it happen.

When I was honest with myself I realised it wasn’t that I was doomed because it just wasn’t going to happen, deep down I knew there were some actions I still wasn’t taking or some I wasn’t do enough of.

Since then and having achieved success I have noticed this same thing happening to many of my clients when we start working together.

When we look at the action they need to be taking we find some they are just not doing, some they are doing a little then giving up because they are not getting the results or seeing any results straight away.

A lot of things need frequency and consistency of action before we hit a point where we break through and see the results. It’s like the classic example of a planted seed. A lot goes on below the ground that we cannot see, it is still growing and making progress but we don’t see it. However if we continue to water that planted seed and care for it then one day it breaks through the earth and we see the results of all that action.

What else could you be doing?

What are you currently doing that you should be doing more of?


If you are truly doing all you can and all you should be but still not getting the results then it’s time to ask someone else to help. Is there someone you know that has had the sort of success you are looking for? Why not ask them how they did it and tell them what you are currently doing, maybe they can help with the missing piece…the difference that makes the difference.
