Why you fail?

15 January 2013, 08:20

Well.. sometimes we fail because of many outside factors but I needed to catch your attention so hello, mission accomplished, now keep reading and be sure to share this article with someone who might need it!


Your relationships keep falling apart and it is always someone else’s fault, your finances just never seem to work out, and you hold grudges for years + literally ‘hate’ some people?  This aint normal bub.. you have issues!

Well this could be a very lekker article for you if you are tired of sukkeling!

Ok so I am fully aware that most of you don’t dig wisdom.

Some of you call it ‘feel good drivel’, others call it ‘bloated opinion’ and most just see a wisdom nugget here and there as something cute or worthy of a bumper sticker.

The fact is that true wisdom - the stuff you can actively, immediately apply in your life – is worth more to you than any lotto ticket or lucky break could ever be.

Healthy relationships are all about knowing what to say and how to say it. (You won’t believe the power of correct tone of voice).

Finances are all about understanding the problem solving/rarity principle.

Health is all about understanding which chemicals best interact with yours.. some people are leaded, some are unleaded and others are diesel…

You get the picture?

It’s worth more than any mineral on earth but most just ignore it and keep stumbling around in the darkness of ignorance without even knowing that they are stumbling.  Then they hand that ignorance down to their kids and wonder why they are so messed up.

There are basic things that we should all be taught by our parents, but most are not. Relational skills, financial management skills, dietary habits… you know? The stuff that determines whether you are actually happy, healthy and wealthy?

Here’s some things that should be natural to you:

Emotionally secure - able to handle rejection without your world falling apart.

Unafraid of risk – able to take a chance and try again if you fail.

 Never bitter – able to easily forgive and move on…

Sound like farfetched nonsense to you? It should be second nature!

Without that stuff you are like an athlete with muscle injuries, simply limping from competition to competition. Always competing but never winning. You need to get those injuries looked at and you need to learn how to compete without hurting them again.

Only a stubborn fool would keep limping in pain from competition to competition when healing is so readily available!

“Healing? That’s a guru or religious term, I don’t need healing, I just need a break!”

Nope, you need to fix the mess that is your current perception of the world.

You need to take a serious look at who surrounds you, what influences you and most importantly, who you actually need to have in your life!

There is nothing more powerful than a mentor. Actually, there is - multiple mentors!

The most successful people on earth all have one major thing in common – They have at some point in their lives left everything to carry water for someone greater than themselves.

Yup, we are not all equal, that belief system is nonsense. Those who possess the know-how and the drive to apply it live lives that the rest could only dream of. Both that knowledge and that drive are 100% determined by who we allow to influence us. But in the darkness of ignorance we will doggedly cling to friends, family and influences that keep us poor, sick and defeated.

You don’t have a financial problem, you have a wisdom problem.

You don’t have a relationship problem, you a wisdom problem.

Most of health problems are wisdom related because you are ignorant of the fact that you are a chemical machine which has certain fuel requirements. For example Sugar has the same effect on your body as it would on your car.

Put Diesel in an unleaded vehicle’s tank and see what happens…

Too much effort to make a change?

Don’t be crazy, do you have any idea how lekker you will feel if you are at your ideal weight?

I know you don’t like long articles so I shall end with this:

From Dr Phil to Anthony Robbins to hundreds of other professional coaches to people that you look up to… ß These are where you should be having a close look. Spiritual leaders, bosses who are willing to share info, that old couple who are happily married after 50 years etc…

Mentors are everywhere and if you think that you don’t need them, you are like a soldier bleeding to death on the battlefield refusing to take advice from the medic. You are not just a fool, you are a proud ignoramus who will eventually walk this earth a shadow of what you could have been.

The only way out of your hole is to get obsessed with wisdom, to completely revamp your perception of the world! The information in itself is nowhere near as powerful as the passion to understand more. It is that passion that will give you answers to every question you have.

Mentors cannot always change your life but they can inspire you to fall in love with the one thing that can – wisdom!

But ja, it’s your call. It always was.

I am willing to answer questions in the comments section and there are a lot of very wise people floating around these pages who can give great advice. Be warned that this is the internet and you always get dodgy trolls wherever you go. Don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater though, sometimes all you need is one line of wisdom to change your life…
