Success means different things to different people. Perhaps you are on your own journey to success and you are not seeing the results you want. Achieving success is not easy and you may be doing things that are holding you back from having success. Check out this list of 10 things you may unwittingly do that hold you back.

1. You Expect Instant Gratification

We are an instant gratification society. Unfortunately instant gratification doesn’t always happen. We’ve all poured our heart and soul into a project only to have nobody notice. It can feel like your efforts are a waste of time and it is just better to quit. But when you expect instant success it actually holds you back from achieving it. Be patient and persistent and give yourself a realistic timeline to achieve things. Gratification will happen over time after you have worked hard to get there.
