Are You Good Enough To Succeed? | Rich Habits Poor Habits Podcast

Have you ever felt that you’re not good enough? Have you wondered why you’re not appreciated or valued for who you really are?

This happens to everyone, even successful business people and entrepreneurs.

But why would wealthy and successful people feel they aren’t good enough?

Something called imposter syndrome can make you feel as if you’re not good enough.

Imposter syndrome causes feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt even in face of evidence to the contrary.

If you’re wondering whether you not you’re good enough, there are questions you can ask yourself to help figure out whether you have what it takes to be successful.

Questions to ask yourself

  • Do you have the skills and knowledge that you need to succeed? If you only have the bare minimum of skills and knowledge, you’ll only achieve the bare minimum of success. Seek out virtuoso skills and virtuoso knowledge.
  • Are you persistent? You’ll need to be in order to succeed. Persistence is not an inherent trait. The most persistent people are passionate about what they’re doing.
  • Do you have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge? Successful people spend a lot of time learning about the thing that they want to succeed at.
  • Are you a risk taker? Some people are too cautious, while others take too many risks. Successful people take risks, but they’re cautious and calculated risks.
  • Do you know what you want to achieve? Successful people know how to focus on the thing that they want to succeed at.
  • Do you have success habits? Whether or not you’re successful depends on whether you cultivate habits that lead to success.
  • Do you have the right team around you? You need experts around you to lead you in the right direction, and you need friends and family to support you. The right people will lift you up and the wrong people will drag you down.
  • Do you have a positive mental attitude? Optimism is a common trait among successful people.
