Do you want to be successful? Well, everybody wants a successful life. 

However, very few are willing to endeavour to reach their dreams.  

The path to success is like a long desert walk in search of an oasis. 

This means the journey to success is rough, but the result is what matters.

Below are 4 of the most common rocks you are likely to stumble upon when you want to succeed:

1. Destructions

Have you ever tried to concentrate on something you are reading, and then all of a sudden, your long lost friend gives you a call? 

You end up talking to him for a long time, leaving aside whatever you were doing. 

Try giving the work you are doing a 100% concentration and focus. 

Destructions are the enemies of progress, and you should avoid them. 

They come in many forms like internet addiction, alcohol and peer pressure. 

2. Fear

Most people aren’t successful because of fear. 

You fear what people would say, what they would think of you or perceive you. 

Fear is not real; instead, it is False Evidence Appearing Real.

Be courageous; you will be surprised at the mountains you can move.

3. Procrastination

You want to work on your startup, but you keep on postponing on when to start it. 

It has the potential of making you the next dollar billionaire, but you keep pushing it to tomorrow. 

Tomorrow never comes, hence do it today.

4. Friends

Friends are supposed to support you, but they can be an obstruction. 

Especially, friends, you don’t share a common vision with.  

Never waste time with friends who seem not to help you achieve your dreams in life. 

Some friends make our lives even harder when it should be the other way round.#hivisasaoriginal
