Are You Owed Something?






Do you feel like your are owed something

in life?   Just because you were born into

a family, do you feel they owe you something?…..

Let’s look at some other issues that we

need to deal with.  Thinking that you

are owed, is just one the these issues.


1) With an attitude that you are

owed something in life because

you happened to be lucky enough

to be here is an attitude that will

eventually catch up with you.

If you want something in life, you

have to approach it with the idea

that you owe it to yourself to go

out and get it and that no one else

owes you anything.


If you want to succeed in whatever

you are doing, then it is up to you to

go get it.  You can’t expect your family

or your teachers to do the work for you.

They can teach you but it is entirely up

to you to take the action.


If you have the attitude that handouts

are part of the deal, then you will never

push yourself enough to accomplish

anything to be truly successful.





2) Learning to communicate! 

You can hear someone but have you

really listened to what was said.

Are you getting the message that was

said to you rather than just getting

bits and pieces of the conversation?


Conversation should be a two way street

and if either side in the conversation is

not listening or speaking clearly, then

the attempt at good communication is

for naught.


Being misunderstood can be on either

side of the conversation and it is

important that both sides understand

this without making the issue deeper

than it needs to be.







3) Learning to be patient.  Many

people will fail because they do not

have the patience to see things through.


This can be seen from a very strong

point of view that many individuals

in the internet marketing niche fail

because they don’t have the patience

to see things through.


It is not a get rich quick theme and

the sooner that is recognized, the

better the approach to this type of

business will be and the realistic

understanding of what is before you

can be handled much better.






4) Learning  to not blame yourself  

for things outside of your control.   Know

the things you can control and then learn

to avoid the things that your have no control over.


This one issue can be easier said than

done but with practice, it can add a lot

of comfort to your daily schedule.

pleasing everyone




5) Trying to please everyone!  

Unfortunately we have a tendency

to end up pleasing no one including



This can be a tricky one because

in a world of trying to help, we many

times forget about ourselves in the

formula of success or in the reverse,

we think only of ourselves and forget

about the importance of with whom

we are dealing….

“It is not what I want from you but

rather what I want for you”  – anonymous –

This quote would certainly add credence

to what we really need to do in our

approach to what ever we are undertaking.

  1. The people whose approval of you is most valuable are the ones who generally aren’t seeking your approval.

    Great post, John!

  2. Hi John,
    #1 seems to be a major problem in today’s workforce. In my previous life, I had a job that included interviewing and hiring new employees. It was a highly specialized position and we would get many applicants who had just graduated from UNM with their degrees (in photography). In the entire time I worked there, almost 7 years, I never hired a single one of these college grads – for two reasons: all that schooling had in no way prepared them for a “real job”, and #2 they all believed themselves to be overqualified geniuses who deserved to start at the top of the pay scale, absolutely believing that they were “owed” something.
    #2 is a goodie as well. I’ve often heard it said that “the person who gets the job is the one who communicates the best’, and that, other qualifications aside, communication is the most important skill set in a successful person’s toolbox.
    Great post,

  3. Patience… the place I could us some help with 😉 People need to read this and own up to their own responsibility’s.
