10 Reasons Why You Are Not Achieving Your Dreams.


Why You Are Not Achieving Your Dreams

Almost all of us desire something in our life. But not all of us achieve what we want. Do you want to know why you are not achieving your dreams?

Well, hold up because today you are going to learn why you are not becoming successful. They say you should learn ‘what to do‘, before doing something new but the important thing to learn is ‘what not to do‘, to save your time and work.

Success requires simplicity but doing that consistently is very complex. You will never become successful by reading books or articles on the internet. As long as you are not executing the information.

If you want to become famous and successful in the real world then you have to work hard in the real world.

People are so comfortable in their surroundings that they do not feel any different when they can’t achieve their goals. They can still survive. Without a driving force, a person may not meet his expectations. That’s why most people could not achieve their goals.

Here are the top 10 reasons, to let you know why you are not achieving your dreams.

1. Lack Of Mental Clarity.

When you don’t have mental clarity, there’s no way you can achieve your goals. Mental clarity means being very clear and specific to what you want in life.

For example; The goal of making 100000$ per month is way better than the goal of making lots of money.

Rethink on your goals, be specific and very clear. Define them as much as you can. People have the wrong ideas about goals. They think they have goals but in reality, they just have mere wishes.

You have to be very specific, for creating a clear picture in your mind. And you also have to find your ‘why’. Find why you want to achieve your dream?

When you strengthen your ‘why’, your desire to achieve something will strengthen itself.

If you want to make your ‘why’ stronger than you should link your emotional reasons with that. As we all know that the subconscious part of our brain is stronger than the conscious part.

And you can achieve anything with the help of your subconscious mind. But it only works with feelings and emotions. You can’t give a command to it as you do to your conscious brain. That’s why you must find your why and strengthen it with emotions.

It will definitely work for you in the future.

2. Your Goal Is Not Motivating Enough.

When your goal is not motivating enough then there is no way you can achieve your dream. That’s why I told you to find your why and link it with strong emotions. Your brain will give you hundreds of excuses for not pursuing ahead.

Another possible reason could be that you are doing something that you don’t love. That’s why you are procrastinating and feeling lazy. You just can’t unlock your true potential this way.

What’s the point of doing something that you don’t like? You are just wasting your time.

In this case, you have to find your passion or what you want to do in life. When you love something then you don’t have to work. Because it’s going to be on its own. And you will be more excited about this new goal. You will feel more focused this way.

3. You Are Not Taking Action Every Day.

When you start being more specific towards your goals. You can easily achieve them. But there is one more step that you have to take. And that step is to take action every day.

It could be the number one reason why you are not achieving your goals. You know it inside. My advice to you is that you should develop the habit of taking action.

Look at the successful people, they take action every day. The truth is that you will never be able to achieve your dreams if you are not taking action every day.

Start with small. Because our brain does not love change. So it is going to stop you by giving you excuses.

Take a vow of being productive and giving your 100% to your dream. And then start increasing it slowly.

Gradually when you are able to create a habit of taking action then there is no one who can stop you from winning.

4. You Are Quitting Very Early.

Jesse Itzler, author of Living with a Seal said that, when your mind tells you that you are totally exhausted, you can’t go further. You are actually 40% done.

You are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.

You have to understand that the universe is testing you before giving you the key to success. So you should never give up on your dreams.

“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm”.– Winston Churchill 

If you are serious about your goals, never give up. Don’t doubt yourself and your capabilities. If you don’t know about something then learn it.

5. You Already Have Everything.

Another reason for not achieving your goals is that you already have everything. We know that, if we want to achieve our goal then we must have a burning desire in us.

That will help to motivate us. If your family is already rich and you want to go further. And you are not finding the motivation then it’s nothing but your brain is giving you some excuses.

Our brain can be our best friend or also our enemy. So you have to control it. Learn to control it and you will achieve what you want.

6. You Are Not Committed To Your Goals.

It can be one of the reasons why you are not achieving your goals. You are not going to achieve your goals by merely setting them clear. You also have to work hard. You have to commit yourself to your goals.

Set aside your entertainment for some time and be fully committed to your goals. If you can do it, no one can stop you.

Most of the people are not committed to their goals. They are not willing to pay the price of it. If you value other things more than your goals, how can you achieve them? There are no magic tricks, it’s pure hard work.

7. You Are Not Working On Your Passion.

If your goal is not your passion. The chances of not achieving them increases. How can you work on something that you don’t like? It doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve something that is not your goal. You can also do that but in the end, you have to pay the price.

If your goal is also your passion. The chances of procrastination automatically decrease. If you don’t know about your passion yet, go find it. You can easily win against anyone if you are working on your passion.

8. You Don’t Have A Burning Desire.

A burning desire is necessary. Napoleon Hill describes it in his book, “Think & Grow Rich”. It all comes down to how bad do you want it. If you want it so badly and you are willing to do any sacrifice, you will achieve it.

If you don’t have a burning desire for your goals. Your working capability decreases. And the gap between you and your goals continues to become wider. And at a certain point, you will quit.

Create a burning desire for your goals. Think of not living a single second without your goals. And see yourself winning.

9. You Lack In Faith.

If you don’t have faith in yourself. How can anyone else have? Believe yourself in hard times, think of it as a process. Everyone has to go through it.

You have to face challenges, negativity, and doubts in the way of your dreams. Only the one who has faith in himself can pass.

All the successful people that you see now, worked hard in their time. They all face these conditions but they have faith in themselves and they didn’t quit. That’s why they are successful. Have faith in yourself.

10. You Are Negative Towards Your Goals.

Don’t let the negativity stop you from achieving your goals. Negativity has its own drawback. It can rail out you from the path of success.

Don’t be with negative people. Try to be friends with positive people. Be humble with everyone. Try to inculcate good habits in your routine. Don’t focus on negativity, forget it, and work on your goals.


These are some points that could be the reason of why you are not achieving your dreams. There could be other reasons too. The reality is that no one can tell you the path of success. Others can direct you but in the end, you have to walk by yourself.

Good Luck from our side 🙂
