Ten Ways We Attract Failure

Written by Muoka Chibuzor.

Failure is not when we failed, but when we have accepted it to be a part of our life. And we crash so loud and accept defeat with all hope lost and dashed to the winds, thinking not of a second chance or retry. I give up is all left to say.

The ideology of Failure can be subdued, it can be erased from ones dictionary, but not if that person is willing to overcome its tentacles with the “You Can!” conviction. Many people have been successful in their life endeavors but slight ignorance made them crash with loud thuds.

Nobody wants to be a failure, nobody wants to be associated with it. But the alarming fact is that so many people invite failure into their lives knowingly or unknowingly and it hunt them when they least expected.
Since no one can comfortably predict how his/her life will end, it will be wise if we take precautions, because life is full of experiments. There are several ways, man can attract failure to themselves and we are going to look at 10 ways that can possibly happen.

First Way
Most people do not believe in the divinity of the earth creation and thus, they keep searching for answers even to the ocean depths but the answer is just staring at them.
Who else would have made the Sky, mountains, rivers/oceans, Humans/lower animals, plants etc…? All these were Wonderful creation by a Wonderful creator (GOD)

We shall not be foolish to assume that all these appeared spontaneously or maybe the sky is blue because we live in the eyes of a big giant with a large eye ball. Everything we see today was an Idea of a creator who was not created. And it was thought of by a supreme God who saw it wise to establish his ideas. The good book says That Humans were wonderfully and fearfully made.

Man can do minor things but will do exploits only when God is with them. With God, man can break the chains of impossibilities. For without God, we are nothing. Believe in God today.
Avoid despising God. – for we are nothing but pencils in the hand of the creator.

Second Way
Arrogance is an overbearing pride evidence by a superior manner to inferiors. Pride is a feeling of high esteem and derivation of pleasuring in measuring self-worth. Such people see themselves as lord overall and feel they can trample over others and nothing happens, alas Pride is in them and God hates it.

The good book says – pride goes before destruction, and if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. And you should let another praise you and not your own mouth, a stranger and not your own lips.
A man who says “I AM KING” is no true KingTywin Lannister

God himself opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble. When pride comes, then comes disgrace but with humility comes wisdom and honor. People who are very proud often forget that a tree cannot make a forest and with their arrogance they step on toes of people who did no wrong in order to preserve their pride. But they forget – What goes around, comes around
Avoid Pride and Arrogance. – For the fall of a man begins when pride arrives.

Third Way
Procrastination is the act of postponing, delaying or putting off issues needed to be attended to intentionally or habitually.
Students who procrastinate, and keep modifying their reading time table to make way for frivolities of life, tend to fail exams.
Christians who procrastinate on reading the good book bible, often see themselves doing things not supposed, dwelling in sin.
Teachers who procrastinate on educating their students, by rescheduling the days of teaching, might eventually produce half-baked students.

Procrastination is a thief and killer of time. An African adage says “look for a black goat during the day, for when night comes, you might not be able to find the black goat.”
Another says – make hay while the sun shines.
Avoid procrastination if you ever dream of success, for life is full of unexpected events. Seize opportunities and elude yourself from saying “Had I Known”

Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. And once you lost it, you can never get it back.
Avoid procrastination. – For time and tide waits for no one.

Fourth Way
A copycat is someone who imitates others work without adding his/her power of creative imagination. Does it mean, such an individual has nothing to contribute in our world today?
Does it mean, such an individual has no talent or potential at all?
Have you ever asked yourself “Where is my power of Originality?”

You Can!
You can be creative and stop copying other people, because you are you and there is none that will be you after you have lived on earth. Life rewards Originality more than copying. Hiding under the cloak of people’s originality will never make one stand out. Instead you keep on advertising them.
You are special, present your special content to the world and you will be celebrated.
Avoid being a Copycat. – For you are destined for greatness.

Fifth Way
Why would someone claim to be what they are not?
Would the life of pretence take one so far?
When someone lives a lie, they present a personality that does not reflect their original self and position. And often when their secrets leak, no one will be happy to help out. Such people also suffer from pride.

When you keep pretending, always remember nothing is forever hidden under the sun. Be more open with who you are and people who were supposed to be in your life will be present. One might be from a very humble background, but who knows? Someone might be willing to help out because they discovered the real personality of the individual from the poor family. But if you keep pretending and disguising to be whom you are not, then you might be losing a lot from life.
Avoid living a lie.

Sixth Way
The evil that men do, lives with them and even after them. When you try to destroy another who has done nothing to you, you are creating enemies that will pull you down as you climb to the top. That’s the way life has ordained it. You must reap what you sow.
Sow Good – reap success and prosperity
Sow Evil – reap shame and failure

The good legacy we do keep for our children speaks well behind us. Even when we are far beyond.  The help you rendered today, might be the source of survival for your generation. What a success achieved!
We should avoid evil plots, evil begets evil and it’s not fit for a person who aims to be truly successful in life. Evil plots are bound to boomerang and obstruct the progress of an individual who indulges in it. Making him/her a Failure with Shame attached.
Avoid plotting Evil.

Seventh Way
As much as people refuse to believe it, the company you keep has an impact and influence on your choices in life. You can’t keep a clean reputation hanging out with messy people. It is far better to be alone, than to be in bad company. Be weary of the friends you keep, for they can Make or Mar you.

If you want to be successful, you have to move with people who thinks alike and are moving in the right direction. When you move with people who add little or no value to your life but keep removing the good values you have struggled to keep. Then you must withdraw from such friends or else you end up a failure.

Such friends can discourage you when you are trying to make a positive step in the right direction, so be weary of them.
Avoid Bad Company. – Life has no duplicate.

Eight Way
When things happen as we would not accept, it’s the nature of man to complain and probably blame others for their ill fate.
But complaining and blaming never solved problems or lead to breakthrough and success. The only thing complaining and blaming does is to convince other people that you are not in control and then make you vulnerable.

Complaining is finding faults. Wisdom is finding solutions. As you breathe right now, another person takes his last. So stop complaining and blaming, and learn to make out the best with what you have. Once you learn how to manage your complaint and blaming, then you will be able to see clearly and find solutions to your problems.
Avoid incessant Complaint and Blaming.

Ninth Way
When you appreciate the people around you and their contributions they have made in your life. It’s a great encouragement to them to be able to do more. Same applies to our relationship with God. If you thank God for what he has done, he will do more for you.

Most people do not appreciate others for whatever achievement they might have made. Instead they burn with anger, lust, jealousy and envy. They forget that one good turn deserves another. When people around you do exploits, applaud and congratulate them. When you do great things yourself, people will cheer you up too. If you fail to appreciate others, you might not be able to learn what they know and that hinders your knowledge and breakthrough.

Be appreciative, all hands are not created equal. But when the hands come together, they form a stronghold and exploits are done, which are marvelous in our eyes.
Avoid Unappreciative behavior.

Tenth Way
Stinginess is when someone is unwilling to spend or help others when necessary when it’s obvious that they have all it takes to render help. Lack of generosity. Most people who are stingy are in constant fear of poverty or lack. They believe that keeping all to themselves makes them infallible. Also some people don’t give because of several numerous reasons that may not be reasonable at all.

But no one ever became poor by giving. Trust allows you to give. Giving is abundant. As you give so it shall be given to you. If you give with judgment, limitation and stinginess that is what you will create in your life – judgment, limitation and stinginess.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have. No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted for we rise by lifting others.

What I spent, I had; what I saved, I lost; what I gave, I have.
Avoid Stinginess. – blessed is that hand that gives.

By avoiding the 10 points listed above, one will probably live a successful and happy life.

Try it today and watch as everything turns around for your good.
