Successful people fail multiple times, but they continue learning from those failures and keep on heading toward their goals. The biggest mistake many people make is giving up when they do fail.


Fear has a real purpose in life and, in itself, is not a bad thing. It is an important part of keeping you safe as it serves as a basic survival mechanism that signals your body to respond to a danger with a flight response. The problem is when there is no immediate threat, followed by an end to the threat and relaxation. This can lead to living in constant fear which is not healthy for you. You can become frozen from fear, and unable to move forward with your goals. Sometimes, you have to move through the fear and do it anyway. When you work toward your goals, even if you are afraid, you can end up finding out that there really was no reason to fear in the first place.


If you have a disability, you may have some genuine limits to what you can and can’t do. However, it is important to make sure that you are not setting limitations that are false ones. Often, you will find that you can do far more than you thought you could. If you become disabled later in life, it is especially easy to feel like your life is over and you are stuck. Work through this with professionals, family, and friends to find out what your true limitations are instead of the false boundaries you put on yourself.

Depression and other Mental Illnesses

Depression, bipolar disorder, and other mental illnesses can cause many issues. These conditions can devastate you. People who are experiencing depression do not have the capability to pull themselves together. You need to get help from professionals such as counselors and psychiatrists. There is nothing wrong with needing to take medication or have therapy to help you learn how to cope with depression or other conditions. By getting the help you need, you can go on to lead a healthy and productive life.

Poor Self-Esteem

When you devalue yourself, you set limits that do not need to exist. If you want to eliminate negativity from your life, this is one of the most crucial changes you need to make. When you tear yourself down, you damage your ability to move forward and accomplish your goals. By building up a positive sense of self, you can look at the world more positively.
