Overcoming Barriers to Success at Work
Love your work
Loving your job is your main tip for success in business or work, you know what “love” is, things you do wholeheartedly without complaining, always learn and learn without being discouraged, willing to sacrifice your time and energy and in the end you will will find what you “love”. Look how richards Branson someone who is successful in the business world did not even graduate from high school because he chose to pursue his love of doing small but perfect business and he was able to establish hundreds of companies from small companies to become a business empire called the Virgin Group. Mark Zuckerberg, who was successful with Facebook because of his love of programming, started fiddling with website activities and found Facebook for the first time in his college dorm garage and now Facebook has become a social media giant with millions of dollars in monthly income. Love your job is your perfect way to succeed in business or business.
Whatever you are doing right now will be extraordinary in the future if you love your job, no matter how small the job you currently have.
Set clear goals
By setting relevant and clear goals, you will always be able to control your work and struggles with careful planning and stay on a positive path. Look at Jan Koum, the inventor of WhatsApp, including the world’s billionaire after his application, Whatsapp, was acquired by Facebook Inc in July 2022. Who is Jan Koum? His childhood was a very poor man and lived only with his widowed mother, because of his big and realistic goal he moved to the USA and set a goal that one day he would become a famous application programming and in fact it proved, with a bad old computer that he bought it to learn programming he found WhatsApps.
Never be pessimistic and compare your limitations
Most people will always be pessimistic to look at something big, just as a pattern how would you answer my question that can you build an airplane? Of course your response is “can’t”, “no way I’m just a high school graduate”, “I’m not an aviation graduate”, “I’m not an expert in aero dynamics like BJ Habibie” etc. Well things are pessimistic and always feel incompetent and compare with others is what makes you not successful with your struggle or work. Look at Jan Koum, who is just a poor child, the son of a widow, Mark Zuckerberg, who started programming for social media with a shabby computer in his college dorm garage, Richard Branson, who didn’t even graduate from high school. They can be rich and successful because they are optimistic and always look at their goals. relevant and do not bind themselves to the limitations they have.
Using the wrong life principle that is “What other people say”
For example, when you work hard at your job or we want to build good communication with superiors, then other people say “you lick ya…” What is your response? Do we stop to build a good relationship with superiors, and hear the comments of people around? Or vice versa? Most of us will feel inferior and even follow other people’s words so that we are not called sycophants, right?
If our actions are often based on what other people say, negative comments from other people will kill our spirit of life. The more we reflect on the negative words of others, the less we will have the power to fight in the face of adversity. Replace the life principle “What other people say”, with the life principle “What God says about me”.
Worry and focus more on negative things
Many people fail in their struggles and work because they worry too much about something that hasn’t happened yet and focus more on the negative. Many employees and professionals focus on the ugliness of superiors, ponder and gossip about superiors’ weaknesses, complain about various unwelcome company policies, etc. If we focus too much on the bad things that happen in the workplace, then we will easily get discouraged.
So that we can no longer see the “bright side” and many opportunities arise. We must remember this formula: “when we focus on negative things, our fighting spirit will disappear, and vice versa, if we focus on only positive things, our work motivation will rise”.
Do aggression with careful planning and start small
Action or take action is the thing you have to do when you want success, to cover a thousand miles of road to success you still have to go through it with one first step, when you want to dig gold in the bottom of the ground then you have to dig it with the first hoe even when you If you want to understand and understand the contents of a book then you have to read the first page to get started.
Do everything starting from the smallest but remain consistent and stay on the path to success. You have a brilliant and bombastic plan but without the aggression to begin with it will just remain a plan.
If we only dream, only aspire, only plan, without concrete action, then our feet will still stand in the same area. Boring. No new excitement. Nothing has changed. No new challenges. And in the end the spirit of life will be extinguished. So, if we already have a clear plan and goal, start with the first step: take action!
Fear of making mistakes and fear of failure
Failure is a delayed success and it is true, the rich and successful people in this world must have tasted failure, they are successful only because they are not afraid to fail and try to stand up from failure. They learn from failure and keep trying with careful planning and they can be successful until now. When you are afraid to fail then it will stop you from doing anything to succeed and when you are afraid to be wrong then you will not have a good plan to start.
When this feeling of fear arises, then our taste buds will go numb, our feet will jam and our brains will freeze. The fear of being wrong and failing will kill our fighting spirit.
