20 Tips To Reverse Your Trend Of Failure And Succeed Finally

  1. Admit that you have failed. Make yourself  a commitment to reverse those failures. Work on it. Start with below 19 tips.
  2. Attach yourself with right people.
  3. Don’t ignore small tasks. Unfinished /delayed small tasks often result in big problems.
  4. Value time. No one cares your reasons for being late. Especially your boss.
  5. Don’t underestimate yourself. You are important.
  6. Do what needs to be done, right now. Procrastination is not just a problem, it can turn into a disease if you make it a habit.
  7. Cultivate the habit of verifying your work. 5 more minutes of verification can save your hours of re-work.
  8. Don’t judge anyone by their first impression. Instead, analyze the pattern.
  9. Be honest. This tip might have been shared a million times, but there is a reason for it. It makes you great person.
  10. Do smart work rather than hard work. Smart work is not shying away from hard work, but finding the real reasons why you are working so hard and automating/simplifying your hard work.
  11. Don’t hurry to learn advanced topics. First,make your basics strong. Advanced topics are just extension of basics. If your foundation is weak, you might understand/relate things in a wrong way which is worst than not understanding the things.
  12. Try not to push yourself too hard for achieving many things at same time. Just focus on one goal and put your quality efforts towards it.
  13. Make your work environment less distracting. Clean your desk, put headphone, or put an away status in messenger. Do whatever it takes to give yourself a productive hour. A focused hour is much better than a 8 hours of distracted efforts.
  14. Don’t put hopes on luck, instead have faith in your efforts. Luck is nothing but known outcome for your hard work.
  15. Negative people are more attractive than positive people, because they speak lots of interesting non-factual things. Best way to deal with negative people is to stay away from them or make yourself immune to their thoughts.
  16. Always validate your important achievements with your peers. You might surprisingly receive few valuable tips for improvements.
  17. Be consistent in your efforts. Don’t expect results or appreciations overnight.
  18. Don’t be a busy man. Instead, have proper work life balance. Being always busy robs your beautiful years from life.
  19. Stop being a consumer always. Instead, try creating something of your own.
  20. Personal development blogs won’t change you. They can only inspire you. What brings the real change is your determined action.

      Welcome to

      Getting rid of negative people is indeed difficult than surrounding ourselves with positive people. However, it’s our will power which can help us to become immune to negative thoughts. Avoiding negative thoughts is really important because negative people/thoughts drain your energy by creating false limitations.

      Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation.

      Take care and have a great day.

  1. Naveen, great job on this article. I think no one should underestimate the power of your first step- Admit! You really can’t move forward until you have accepted and diminished the feelings of past failures. By admitting it and releasing it, comes a new power and energy to move forward. Our past does not have to equal our future, but our past will determine it unless we accept and forgive. It’s all about perspective.
