Why are you not reaching the success?
You fear success.
Forget fear of failure, it’s fear of success that kicks us the hardest. It's the darnedest thing, too — the kind of thing that you don't imagine possible, until one day you realize that you really don't know what to do with yourself if you ever accomplish your goals. On the other side of success is the unknown, and believe it or not, the unknown is often scarier than the known world of struggle and unfulfillment this side of success. When I realized this, one night as I drifted unhappily to sleep, it jerked me straight up in my bed!
My father, an avid collector of seemingly random quotes, is fond of saying that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. (I've never had the heart to ask him why he keeps saying this….) At some point, you have to stop doing whatever you're doing and figure out why you're doing it, especially if it doesn't seem to be getting you where you want to be. When you do, I think you’ll find that at least one of the above applies to you. Whatever your reasons, though, the important thing is to realize that it's in your nature neither to be a failure, nor to be a success, that success is something we make rather than something that happens to us — and when you realize that, you can start to make the changes that move you from "insanity" to success.
