Last Updated: Jan 16, 2016

If you have determination, resilience, grit and many other positive attributes, you will succeed at work. But sometimes, there are personal behaviors that will pull you down. If you are not mindful enough, you might get sucked by these behaviours and actions until you spiral down to failure.

Here are things that are guaranteed to make you fail at work:

  1. Laziness. This does not only mean not working hard enough. This also means tardiness, mediocrity and more. Avoid distractions, be mindful and be in the zone to avoid this deadly sin. Otherwise, your co-workers and you boss will notice your laziness.1
  2. Procrastination. For business owners and entrepreneurs, time is money. However, some of their employees just want their shifts to be over, so they waist time. Don’t be that worker. Don’t do tomorrow what you can do today.2
  3. Not social. You can’t get along with the people around you. You usually only see the negative things in them. Try to see the brighter side in every person. Learn how to appreciate them.3
  4. Negative. If you have a negative attitude, your results will be negative. Have inverted paranoia; think that everyone is trying to do you at work cover
  5. Accept. Sometimes it hails on your crops and rain on your parade. There is nothing you can do about it. Your failure might not be of your doing. You simply have to accept it.5
